Marty Machowski has done it again! This book, along with the earlier Old Testament devotional book, Long Story Short, is another masterful devotional book for families. It is simple without being shallow. It is theologically robust without being pedantic. It is comprehensive without being overwhelming. Best of all, it is doable for busy parents with children. --Dr. Tedd Tripp, Pastor; conference speaker; best-selling author of Shepherding a Child's Heart
Marty Machowski gets families. Even more importantly, he knows how to connect them to the Bible with simple, relatable New Testament studies that make much of Jesus in every lesson. If you want your kids to see the Savior through his Word, spend some time in this exciting new devotional. --Dave Harvey, Church Planting and Church Care, Sovereign Grace Ministries; author of When Sinners Say I Do: Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage
Finding time for family devotions is a high hurdle. But finding something enjoyable to do as a family that also illuminates God's Word can be an even higher impediment. In this wonderfully helpful book, you've found the answer to the second challenge. And Marty's clear writing and creativity will help you make the time (even if you don't think you have it) to clear the first hurdle. It's my pleasure to recommend this book and the devotional experience it provides to you and your family. --Dr. Robert Wolgemuth, Author of The Most Important Place on Earth: What a Christian Home Looks Like and How to Build One

These two devotionals will give your family an incredible tool to introduce your children to the fullness of Scriptures. Each volume contains 78 weeks of devotionals and so your family could go through both testaments of the Bible in three years. Because the work has been already done to present the lesson, the dad only has to skim over the lesson and make sure he has any ingredients for the object lesson that some chapters include. For example, in “Story 84” on page 33 about The Temptation of Jesus, “you will need a shine new quarter and a penny for this exercise.” Not a whole lot of preparation but helpful directions to make the lesson come alive.
It is also helpful to realize that these devotionals can be geared to any family member from prereaders on up to high school. If you have kids and ten minutes you can set aside each day, then get these devotional books and start making the Bible come alive in your family.
