Impressive! That's the word that came to my mind the first time I saw the Printable Books of the Bible Summary Sheets from Teach Sunday School. What a great way to teach our children the Books of the Bible at home or in Sunday School at church.
Okay, there is so much information at your fingertips with these Bible at a Glance printables. They are packed with information.
I love these sheets because they are a great resource for Bible teachers of any kind--Sunday school teachers, homeshcool moms, Bible study leaders, or pastors.
I printed mine and have them in a notebook for reference. So, here is the way I will use them in my Bible teaching. When I start a new book of the Bible, I will pass out a copy of these sheets to my children and we will go over the basic facts together that are on the sheet.
For the review, we each grabbed a sheet based on what we are studying in our Quiet Times and read it over. We all agreed that it made a significant difference in understanding the book we were studying.
I want to take you step by step through the Books of the Bible At-A-Glance Sheets. Here is Joshua with the title in bold letters at the top.
The second line tells us some key things about the Book of Joshua from The Holy Bible.
1. It is the 6th Book in the Bible
2. Joshua is the Author
3. It was written in 1375
Right there we have a brief overview of the author, location, and time it was written.
The next line shows the time period it covers. This is a huge help when you are teaching a Bible class or history class. Below this it gives a one sentence summary. We learn that this book follows the Exodus and begins when Israel is in the Promised Land.
The next section tells us what famous stories are included in Joshua. They mention three popular stories: the battle of Jericho, the day the sun stood still, and Rahab proteting the spies. They also mention two significant verses about being strong and courageous and one about waiting for the Lord to give a shout. I would have included "As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."
The final section gives a quick overview of the book.
Bottom line: this is a Bible handbook lesson on one page. Very impressive!
I am excited as a Bible teacher and homeschool mom to have this resource at my fingertips. I guarantee I will be using these printables often.
