Sarah CB Posted August 1, 2008 Share Posted August 1, 2008 Over the years I've looked at different Bible programs and bought a few. I haven't liked any of them but didn't really know what I was looking for either. So, we did character studies and devotionals, memorized scripture and read the Bible and that was fine. Then I found the Truth and Grace Memory Books. Voddie Baucham recommends them in his book, Family Driven Faith. The books are very simple but also to the point. The first book covers Bible for age 2 to grade 4, the second book covers grades 5 - 8 (I think) and the last book covers high school. Each grade level contains scripture memory, hymns and catechism questions. So, a first grader would learn a number of different selections from scripture (Luke 2:8-15, John 11:25-26, etc), the Ten Commandments, two hymns, and twenty catechism questions that include things like: Can anyone go to heaven with this sinful nature? (the previous questions dealt with Adam's sin) - No. Our hearts must be changed before we can be fit for heaven. (Jeremiah 31:33, 34 Ezekiel 36:25-27; John 1:12, 13; 3:1-10; 1 John 5:1, 4, 18) What is a change of heart called? - Regeneration (Titus 3:5-6) Other questions are What is meant by atonement?, What is justification?, and Did our Lord Jesus ever sin? 6th graders memorize scripture, the Apostles' Creed, learn two hymns, read three books in the Bible, and learn 29 catechism questions from The Shorter Catechism: A Baptist Version. Grades 9 to 12 memorize scripture, learn hymns, read more of the Bible and learn catechism questions from Hiedelberg Catechism: A Baptist Version. By the end of the three books, students will have read the New Testament twice, the 4 Gospels three times, Proverbs five times and the book of Psalms twice. Memorization includes (but is not limited to) the Ten Commandments, the Beatitudes, the Lord's Prayer, 1 Corinthians 13, various psalms (including 119), plus all the books of the Bible. I bought all three books for $15. I'm really looking forward to using this with my kids - it's so simple and yet so comprehensive all at the same time. I love the questions that I'll be teaching to my 2 year old: Who made you? - God made me. What else did God make? - God made all things. Why did God make you and all things? - For His own glory. How can you glorify God? - By loving him and doing what He commands. :001_smile: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
