All Access The Greatest Book Ever Written

The Bible is more than just an old religious book. It is direct communication from God on how we are to live, a history of our world, and a guide to how we can live the life our Creator intended for us to live. Every story in the Bible, no matter how short, seemingly insignificant, or even boring – is there for a reason and we can learn something valuable from it. The purpose of this lesson is to stir up a fresh curiosity in children as to how the Bible can help them in their daily lives. They should go home more eager to read the Bible for themselves.
