Book Description

The Dig for KIds is a simple and easy way for parents to study through books of the Bible with their children. The Dig takes the guesswork out of teaching for parents. Each lesson is just one page that contains four main parts:

The Map - The Map is the overview of each lesson. It will tell you as a parent and your child what you will be studying.

The Dig - The Dig is the main passage of the Bible you will be reading. There are typically three or four review questions that will help with discussion and review.

The Treasure - The Treasure is the big idea of the passage you have just studied. Simply put, it is what you want your child to remember in one sentence.

The Display - Archaeologists go on a dig, find a treasure, and then put it on display for all to see. This is the basic idea behind the Display. It helps your child live out what he or she has just learned.

Early on in The Dig you will meet a character named Doc. He will be your expert and experienced tour guide. Through each Dig, Doc will help guide a child systematically through books of the Bible. The Dig for Kids is a great resource for parents because it makes teaching children the Bible simple, fun, and interactive!

About the Author

Patrick Schwenk grew up going to church wearing clip-on ties, uncomfortable shirts, pants that were too short, and shoes that were too tight (at least that is how he remembers feeling). He was born, raised, and then born again within a conservative evangelical home (and church) in the Midwest. Today, he still loves the church and is thankful to both serve and lead others toward Jesus. He is a father, husband, and pastor. Patrick and his wife Ruth met while attending the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, IL. They have been married for fourteen years and currently have four children ages three to ten. They love serving in ministry, spending time together as a family, reading, drinking lots of coffee, and resting in God's grace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laying a Firm Foundation... August 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow! This book is designed to lay a firm foundation for my children in their Christian life!

I heard about this book a week ago, when it came out, looked over the 1st free lesson. Today, I bought "The Dig" and decided that I would bait my children (age 6,8, and 10)about meeting a new man named Doc, who will take us on a wonderful Bible adventure seeking treasure - treasure in God's Word! I homeschool my children - and oh, they couldn't wait to know more about Doc. So I said his full name was Doctor Luke, and my 2 older ones grabbed their Bibles to read about Luke in the Bible! We will start in 1 1/2 weeks "The Dig" and daily walk with Doc through the book of Luke.

Thank you! I am looking forward to your other materials, and thanks for allowing my dear friend to translate this in Spanish! God bless!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Creative Way to Dig Into Scripture! August 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I spent an afternoon digging through this resource before passing it on to my kids and I'm definitely impressed! The author walks children through the book of Luke in a fun, creative, and modern way. But you know what I really like about it? Every chapter is bite-sized so that kids can complete the entire lesson before their attention is lost.

It's easy to follow and offers life application at a level they can absorb. Great book!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Dig - Luke Volome 1 September 21, 2012
By ksands
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I started this study of the bible book of Luke with my daughter in place of going to our church group AWANA. As we are on a tight budget and gas prices are skyrocketing our church is a bit of a drive from our home. However, I wanted to continue a bible related study and fun time. So, we started The Dig, I like it for its format which is easy to follow and holds her interests. We enjoy reading the scriptures which corresponds to the study. We also like the scripture memorization. I have incorporated the movie The Nativity Story as a part of the study. When we cover certain information, we watch the movie up to the topic discussed to give her an even better visual concept of the information we just covered. This has helped her enhance her relationship with the Lord and draws out personal application to how the information fits her life circumstances today. We have recommended this book to several of our friends. Overall, we absolutely love this study aid and hope you will too!

"The Dig for Kids" is a great resource for families to jump into the Scriptures together. One of the things I appreciate most about this resource is that you are not just reading someone else's thoughts about the Bible, you are actually reading the Bible together as a family. The Dig is a guidebook, helping to point us in the right direction and keep us on the right path as we discuss Biblical truth together. I definitely recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent September 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Three of my sons age 12, 10, and 8 are "digging" through the Book of Luke with me. The questions are relevant and thought provoking. The "treasure" is applicable for all of us! A fun way to study Luke.
