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 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.
