I am almost ashamed to say I do not make time to read my Bible as I should. I have the time, but do not make the time. Life gets busy (I make it busy) and I move away from where my focus should be held; in the Word growing closer to God. I like Bible studies, but sometimes, just cracking open the Bible and reading the books themselves is the way to strengthen that relationship. Books of the Bible At-a-Glance has been a great tool to help me include regular Bible study in my life.
Teach Sunday School makes “pre-planned Bible lessons for busy Sunday School teachers & Christian parents.”
I am one of those busy parents. Teach Sunday School has created several products to make teaching the Bible easy and help bring it to life. One of those items is the Books of the Bible At-a-Glance. Teach Sunday School refers to them as one-page “cheat sheets”, but I would rather refer to them as one-page “knowledge sheets” or “quick knowledge sheets”. There is no cheating going on around here. 😉
I like clarity and Books of the Bible At-a-Glance adds clarity to our Bible study. The sheets include the “who-what-when-where-why” of each book in the Bible. If you are trying to count, that is 66 books all together. There are 39 in the Old testament and 27 in the New Testament.
There is a one-page sheet for all 66 books. The sheet for each book includes:
Book Title, Book Number & Placement, Author, Date Book Was Written, Time Period Covered, Claims to Fame, Famous Stories Included, Most Famous Verses and Important Points About the Book.
Of course, anyone can go through each book (or Google it – no!) and find that information, but why? Teach Sunday School has already done it for you. Even better is that each sheet has a nice presentation, is easy to read and is identical in design, so you can quickly find what you want to know about the book you are studying on every sheet. Teach Sunday School makes it easy to get started with your study.
The Bible study pages are geared towards children and teens, but adults can get some use out of the pages. I did.
My favorite book of the Bible is Proverbs. I like the practical and clear instruction that is shared throughout the book.
I usually prefer a physical book over a PDF option of the same, because I love touching the book I am reading. In this case while using the Books of the Bible pages, I found having a PDF worked better for us. It was easier for me to print a copy for everyone when we read through a book together as a family. It was also nice being able to print individual sheets for when Lily wanted to study independently.
Books of the Bible At-a-Glance is a great resource. It is a simple idea, but exactly what I needed to get me started on my own Bible study through the Bible. It is the little things that seem to make the biggest difference.
I am probably going to print copies of the Books of the Bible At-a-Glance and have the pages spiral-bound for each one of my children, so they can use the resource as a reference when we do Bible study.
