The goal of this Bible narratives reading guide is to provide a resource that focuses on the narratives and poetry of Scripture. Scott Aniol has created a 52-week Bible reading plan that focuses only on the narratives of Scripture, along with all of the psalms and proverbs. Further, the plan schedules readings for five days per week, giving readers the weekend to catch up if they fall behind.
This guide includes notes, summaries, and questions for personal reflection or group discussion for each day’s readings. It also includes a 52-week catechism and a passage of Scripture to memorize and a hymn to sing each week.
This resource could be used in a number of ways. An individual could use this for personal Bible study and meditation. The plan also works perfectly for upper elementary age children, and the study notes will help answer questions they might have. Parents could use this for family worship as well, reading the passages together and using the questions for discussion. The notes will also help the parents be able to answer questions their children (or they themselves!) might have as they read. Or a whole family could read through the plan together, parents and older children reading the passages individually earlier in the day and using the memory passages, hymns, catechisms, and reflection questions during family worship.
The Tune My Heart Worship Guide includes the 5 Day Bible Narratives Reading Plan, 52-Weekly Catechism, bible memory, and weekly hymns that correspond with the larger Devotional Guide. It does not include the study guide notes.
This resource is intended for use by each member of a family during family worship or for personal worship.
This spiral bound volume contains the reading plan, catechism, and Bible memory, along with the three reflection questions for each day’s reading and room to write responses. This is idea for personal devotion, or for children as they prepare answers for later family discussion.
