Many families find daily scripture study a challenge at best. Too often, it means the same old thing — quickly going around the room with each person reading a verse or two.
Isn't there more that parents can do to bring the power of the scriptures into the live of their families? Scripture Study for Latter-day Saint Families offers a solid answer: Yes!
From the best-selling series come the latest volume, The Old Testament. This power-packed resource book is full of great ideas for family scripture study. Parents will thrill as they discover activities, object lessons, stories, quotations, and insights that will help them lead their families through the Old Testament.
The authors write, “This book is simple to use, even by children. As you thumb through it, you will notice that it follows the Old Testament sequentially. Creative teaching ideas have been provided for most chapters in the books of the Old Testament.”
I bought this book in hopes of helping me teach the Old Testament, including Isaiah. I keep running into a referral to a different book, Scripture Study for Latter-day Saint Families: The Book of Mormon with NO suggestions otherwise listed. So far this has been happened with Isaiah 2-14 and 29. I'm afraid to find out which other books and/or chapters are not covered in this book.
It doesn't seem fair to me that I should have to buy a different book to teach out of the Old Testament. Why couldn't the suggestions for things found in The Book of Mormon edition be written out in the Old Testament edition?
I feel like I did not receive what I thought I was paying for. I did not find a warning about this anywhere.
I am keeping the book for the other ideas, but felt buyers should be aware of this shortcoming.
This is a great source of activities and insights into the Old Testament. I also appreciate the many quotes from latter-day prophets that bring the OT to life.
