This book has great content. My group of thirteen 5th graders is enjoying the book a great deal. However, the teacher needs to be smart about how to take concepts that are WAY above the heads of this age group and make them understandable. I wasn't too impressed with the books explanations. Using only the book I still got blank stares back from my group. An example of this would be the importance of historical, geographical, and cultural context. The book gave abstract examples that were not helpful to the kids. It took some time and some more age relevant examples for the kids to get those concepts. With that said, I still think this book is worthy of consideration.

I love Kay. She always seeks to make real-world applications. She does this so well for adults, I was curious to see how she would do with kids. In summary--not quite as well.

This book could be better described as "How to teach your kids the Bible". It has wonderful precepts and concepts, but these will be better used by adults FOR young children than BY those children.

Teens will be OK with these concepts, but I doubt a teenager would pick up a book with this cover.

If you have teenagers who are really into specific books of the bible, I would suggest (for Revelation at least) "Dragons, Grasshoppers & Frogs!".

For general bible study for teens, I think "What the Bible is all About" by H. Mears would be a better choice.

Again--Kay's precepts and concepts here are great. They are just a bit above the level of the audience for which they are directed.

Format: Paperback
Some people said that this book was a little too hard for kids. I am 10 years old and I LOVED this book! I've also done "Jesus: Awesome Power, Awesome Love." These Bible studies aren't too hard, but they're still challenging for me. They are just the right level.

I learned so much about studying the Bible. They taught about observation, interpretation, and application, the 5 W's and an H, marking key words with colored pencils, using a concordance, examining historical and cultural context, learning Scripture verses, and more.

These studies aren't like a chore for me - they're fun! I learned so much about studying the Bible. I highly recommend this book, especially for homeschoolers.

My wife and children (ages 12 and 10) have been using the book and they just love it. I have used the inductive Bible study method through Intensive Care Ministries (Dan Finfrock) as well as Hendricks' Bible study Living by the Book and this book is better than the latter and almost as good as the former. Kay Aurther and Janna Arndt have created a wonderful resource to help children understand the Inductive Bible Study Method. Although the different colors and pictures can be intimidating the basic method and message of the book is very good.

My 8 year old and I LOVE How To Study Your Bible For Kids! The puzzles and cool activities are so fun and quite challenging.

Challenging might be a key word to describe this book and the process it teaches. Another reviewer says this book is not for persons with no Bible background or beginners...I will admit my son would probably not learn as much if I were not sitting with him while he goes through the book, but I enjoy being there with him to give those explanations another reviewer said were needed. For example, right off the bat, we learn the Bible does not contradict itself. An 8 year old can easily understand that statement, but I added a real-life situation to help: If some angels walked into our kitchen and I later told Daddy, "I saw an angel with red hair!" but you told Daddy, "Three angels came into our kitchen!" did we contradict each other?

We made just two changes to the process:

1) We use his New International Reader's Version (NIrV) Bible instead of the NASB because he can easily understand everything he reads in it. We often compare verses in several different translations, but he does his main study and marking in his NIrV.

2) We take more than one day to complete each "day" in the book. Maybe we're slower than the average folks, but I don't ever want studying the Bible to become a chore for him, so we take it slow and easy and have a great time. He later teaches Daddy and Grammy what he's learned each day, so I know he's "getting" it.

I also want to say that learning to be an "Inductive Detective" is beneficial for more than just Bible study - the skills he's learning will also pay off big in general reading comprehension, research and other academic skills.

In summary, buy and use this book! Then pass it along to another kid. Then to another & another...

I've looked all over for material for my 8 year old to learn how to read and study her Bible. There seemed to be only two classes of material - kids Bible stories and studies for teenagers (which always include things that do not pertain and are not appropriate for her age group. Kudos to Kay Arthur for writing challenging material for kids!

The technique is the same that is taught to adults in bible study. I wish I would have had this when I was learning the study technique myself.
