The Sword Study of II Timothy by Tammy McMahan is ten weeks of Bible study suitable for the whole family! The workbooks are available for purchase separately so you can customize your family's experience based on the ages of the children involved. But each week, each family member studies (and memorizes) the same Scripture at their own age-appropriate level.
Level One is designed for 4-7 year-olds. The lessons have three basic parts: "Pray", a hands-on component called "Color and Do" and an application portion entitled "Read and Learn". The level one workbook contains engaging illustrations, various age-appropriate exercises, challenges and fun puzzles.
The Level Two workbook is designed for children aged 7-10 years. This book also contains prayer and application components. Investigative study is introduced with this age group where the topics are examined from an "aerial view", a "street view" and an "under the rug" view. The activities are meatier. The questions are more thought-provoking and biographies of Christians are presented.
Level Three is geared toward 11-14 year-olds. The format is similar to Level Two, but there are fewer drawings, more advanced questions, tools like Strong's Concordance are introduced, and there are fun activities like ciphering, charting and word puzzles.
Level Four is intended for ages 14 and up. This workbook contains investigative study is the "aerial view", "street view" and "under the rug" format. There is a prayer component and an application component like the other workbooks as well. The questions at this level are basically the same as Level Three in content. They are just worded in a more mature fashion.
The Level Five workbook is the same study guide as Level Four, but it also contains additional helps like background information, in-depth devotional and investigative study, guided prayer using the A.C.T.S. model, memorization, family gatherings and answers to key activities.
This is a wonderfully flexible Bible study that can be customized to engage all age groups. What a wonderful way to spend time as a family.
Since it is just me at home to go through this study, I used the Level 5 workbook, and compared each of the other levels. This is an amazing study for a family. Or it would be a wonderful study for a church to use for small groups or Sunday School classes. The Bible study on II Timothy is for 10 weeks, and is very in depth, very well structured, giving parents or leaders everything you need to successfully lead this study. It is so much in these studies you could easily spread it out over more than 10 weeks, or I would suggest keeping it, and going through it again later on.
The special thing I like about this study is that there is a workbook for each age level. Everyone is learning the same things from the same scripture, but at their own level. Even a four year-old can do a simple worksheet starting off with praying, and then coloring a picture about the study for that day. I really like that each day encourages everyone to pray, actually write down scripture verses and read their Bibles. I love workbooks when I study because I learn so much more when I have to dig for answers to questions, and then write those answers down. Each day also gives a place to Apply the lesson, causing each person to think about what they have studied for that day. And it ends with A.C.T.S. Prayer Time, which is Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving and Supplication.
This study is definitely worth check into. I have been through many Bible studies with workbooks like this, and I can truly say this is one of the best I have found. I will be keeping each of these books for further studies with different age levels.
