We constantly tell students to read their Bibles, but we rarely take the time to teach them how. Bible reading is a skill to be learned and practiced. This series is aimed at practicality. Each week is designed to coach students into effective Bible reading.

This product has a TON of content! It’s not light, but it’s very detailed and strong. The DYM Team would definitely use this content for a deeper, more detailed Bible study or Sunday School class. Do you others on your team who want to teach? If so, give them this content and turn them into a pro.

Week 1: How’d You Get Here? This week looks at how we got the Bible by investigating two “I”s: Inspiration and Infallibility. Lastly, we talk about Bible translations and encourage the students to find and use a translation that they understand.

Week 2: There’s a Map in the Glove Box This week’s goal is to map out the Bible. We give the students an overview of the Bible’s structure and talk about the main themes as well as the different genres of the books. We conclude this lesson by going over several keys for reading the different books of the Bible.

Week 3: When the Light Bulb Turns On This week we examine two natural impulses that Bible readers have. Then we try to offer alternatives to those impulses. The two main themes covered are illumination of the Holy Spirit and overview reading.

Week 4: OIA? This week introduces the students to a simple method of Bible study – the OIA method. OIA is an acronym of Observation, Interpretation, Application. We walk the students through all three steps in the process. After each step, the lesson is paused so students can practice the step in groups.

Week 5: Let Me Check the Tool Box The point of this week is to introduce students to various tools for Bible study. We cover various Bible apps, an online topical Bible, and we teach students how to use study Bibles. After a tool is introduced, the students are given time to explore the tool for themselves

There are plenty of people who are grateful that you do what you do. Your students are, their families are, and your church is, even though they may not say it often enough. I want to say thanks on behalf of them, and model the way we need to be saying thanks to the leaders that serve alongside us—in ten different ways—through this ebook.

Thank YOU!
