How do Sunday
school teachers lead children through the stories of Cain and Abel or Judas’s
betrayal in a way that reflects the authority of Scripture? Sunday school
curricula often glosses over difficult lessons or focuses too much on
characters in Bible stories, neglecting God’s self-revelation in Scripture.
John and Kim Walton have created this handbook for 175 Bible stories to assist
teachers and parents in knowing what each story teaches and how to present it
in a God-centered way.
As they work
their way through the Bible, the Waltons examine seven elements in each story:
focus, theme, application, place in the Bible, interpretational issues,
historical and cultural background, and age-group appropriateness. The Bible
Story Handbook includes introductory articles on why we teach the Bible,
right and wrong ways to use the Bible, and ends with a two-year teaching plan.
Every parent and Sunday school teacher will find this unique resource to be
invaluable in teaching children to know and love God.
