I was given the cool opportunity to review Bible Quest, a classical education style Bible curriculum. It fits perfectly with any type of at-home Bible study for children (homeschool or otherwise), but would compliment a Sunday School curriculum nicely as well! It would also work for a small group children’s Bible study. Bible Quest offers two 40-week versions of their curriculum – one for Old Testament, the other for New Testament. We chose to review the Old Testament version. The teacher’s lessons came 3-hole-punched and ready to be put into a binder. The curriculum also included laminated maps, an Old Testament timeline, a review card game, and a CD with memory songs.
I love the classical education style that this curriculum offers because it fits with the way we school perfectly. Each week’s Bible story includes a scripture memory verse, which is put to song to help students memorize it. This means there are 40 scripture memory references for each Testament, I love that! The curriculum also includes a concise Bible timeline, put to a catchy tune. The review songs are convenient to add into our other memory review work, which gives the children a solid Biblical foundation to build on.The lessons are easy to use with multi-aged groups, and can be flexibly spread throughout the week. Virtually no prep time is required (big plus!). They include supporting scripture references that older children can look up and read aloud, as well as key facts to help everyone easily learn the material. Lessons also include thought-provoking discussion questions, which can be utilized more or less based on the ages/stages of the children. My little loves also like that the lessons include an enrichment activity – the sensory input from “doing” offers another way for them to remember the stories. The lessons could be easily customized to fit time restraints or the needs of children.I think this is a terrific Bible study that would compliment any family’s homeschool studies. I found it when researching for a Community Bible Study curriculum replacement – our move to the country made our campus too far away. I’ve always had a difficult time incorporating a formal Bible study curriculum into our school days at home, but this one is definitely an easier study to use. The minor prep time combined with the classical style makes this a perfect addition. It is also affordable at $50 for each Testament version!
