Resilient Disciples Podcast: The Bible Story Handbook

Podcast by Ross Cochran March 3, 2020

Dr John H Walton Ph.D. and Kim E Walton join the Resilient Disciples podcast to discuss The Bible Story Handbook: A Resource for Teaching 175 Stories from the Bible. They are the authors behind this beneficial resource to any ministry looking to better communicate Biblical narratives, which should be all ministries! Kristin Thompson and Kirsten Hitchcock joined the conversation to provide insight on how KidMin leaders can use this resource, but we believe it would be beneficial to any context.

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. Get the book for you or your team here!
