The Picture-Smart Bible is an innovative approach to "seeing" Scripture as a total entity. This Genesis-to-Revelation course is designed to help participants learn, remember and teach the themes and concepts in each book of the Bible...and have fun in the process!
In this innovative Bible study program, an overview of an entire book is illustrated on a single page. When your children are finished drawing through a book of the Bible, they will have both an illustration to save and an imprint on their minds to remember. Check out our samples to see how it works.
Some of the great features:
Simple drawings to trace (No need to be an artist)
Straightforward script (No need to be a biblical scholar)
Stand alone curriculum or use as supplemental lesson
The Picture-Smart Bible is both an evangelistic tool and a discipling manual.
1. The MASTER DRAWINGS, which provide a visual guide for the teacher, illustrate key concepts of each book of the Bible, Genesis to Revelation.
What I like best about the master sheets is that you can use it as a
coloring page for younger children who are not ready to "draw" their own
copy! It also helps you and your child see what the end product will look
2. A "SCRIPT" or synopsis of each Bible book includes easy-to-follow instructions regarding when and what to draw and read. No commentaries needed; the "prep" is done for you. The small drawings on the left are progressive.
This is so flexible! You can read it as scripted with no prep time!
It even tells you when to pause to add to your drawing! You draw as
you read. Make sure you have your Bible handy, because it directs
you to look up some scriptures along the way. This is great for training
kids to look up scripture references.
3. STUDENT SHEETS (located in the resource section) are copied and handed out to all students. As the teacher reads through the script, student (and teacher) complete the dotted line drawing, then add color.
Okay, I admit, I am not that great of an artist, sigh! That's OK though,
because the student sheets are super light outlines that you trace to make
the "big picture". By adding in your own details and color, you really make
it your own. When you are done with this study, you will have the entire
Bible in picture format! What a keepsake!
