Many parents have good intentions for daily times of family worship. But these good intentions often fail to last because of 3 main problems: an overly ambitious plan, the absence of a plan, or the perceived lack of a spiritual benefit. This new resource by counselor and professor David Murray will help families establish regular family devotions because it is realistic in its aims, has a clear plan and direction, and stimulates interaction with Scripture and prayer. Exploring the Bible Together covers key passages in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, providing a big-picture overview of the whole Bible over the course of a year. Fifty-two weekly "expeditions" are each divided into 6 days, with a small passage of Scripture (an average of 5 verses), two questions (one for older kids and one for younger kids), a brief application lesson, and a short prayer prompt. Artwork by illustrator Scotty Reifsnyder accompanies each page. In just a few minutes a day, families can explore the whole story of the Bible together.
Dr. David Murray is Professor of Old Testament and Practical Theology at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, and Pastor of the Free Reformed Church in Grand Rapids. He was ordained to the ministry in 1995 and pastored two churches in Scotland for 12 years. He is the author of Christians Get Depressed Too, How Sermons Work, and Jesus on Every Page, and regularly speaks at conferences in North America and beyond.
