About "One Year Bible For Children"
This devotional for families with children aged 5-8 combines beautiful illustrations with skilled writing from best-selling author Gil Beers. Every day's reading features a three-part discussion section: "Remember" (to recall factual information); "Discover" (to learn a lesson that relates to today); and "Apply" (to apply to the child's own situation). This is a format that Gil Beers established in the full-text edition, "The Bible for Children." Classic Bible art from that project is reused in this edition.

Customer Reviews For "One Year Bible For Children"Write Your Own Review
We have used this daily devotional Bible for a few months now and have found it thought-provoking, faith-building and inspiring, adults and child alike. It is giving a good overview of the Bible to our 9 year old with whom we have enjoyed wrestling with the questions and ideas raised. He is developing a good grounding in what is in the Bible and what it means, alongside a grasp of the importance of studying and questioning what's there. January begins with Genesis, through to Revelation in December, with pairs of days focussing on the Psalms sprinkled through at regular intervals. I would be hesitant to put it in the 5 - 8 yr bracket as the questions and ideas for discussion need some maturity in order to gain the best from them. I would say this is really aimed at the 7 - 12 age range. It's definitely one to do as a family group. My only criticism is that it assumes a very conservative evangelical viewpoint, which our family doesn't share. This means it is hot on the importance of the Bible, which is good, but does seem to view direct experience of the Holy Spirit as being limited to the first Pentecost in Acts 2. This skews one or two of the questions, but is easily dealt with. We found it provoked a good discussion around what different Christians believe and what is an essential core to orthodox faith.
