30 Days to Understanding the Bible

Published by Lydia Richmond on

My Sunday School class made it our mission to walk through the Bible to understand it in a way that we had never understood it. Yes, most of us have spent our entire lives inside a church and in regular Sunday morning classes. We’ve learned the “basic” stories of Noah and Jonah and Job and Moses and Jesus. But there’s history within the Bible that we were certain we just never touched. This collaborative need to learn more and understand more has fueled my personal curiosity, and 30 Days to Understanding the Bible by Max Anders fits the bill!

Easy to Understand Guide

The guide starts with an overview of the organization of the world’s most popular text. For each bit of information offered to the reader, there are review opportunities, small quizzes, and then even more reinforcement by way of explanation, quizzes, and restatement.

From a teacher’s perspective, the setup of this text is awesome. The idea that we could only take 15 minutes a day to work through the book appeals to me, and the use of scaffolding and prior knowledge makes my curriculum based brain feel giddy.

Starting with a discussion of the books of the Bible and how they’re organized then moving to a discussion of each of the major eras of the Bible, Anders writes in a conversational tone that makes the book both approachable and easy to read.

Teaching Plan

Even better, the last pages of the book include a teaching plan. This 13-week plan provides not only the overview of each lesson but also tools to teach the Bible in 30 days. This would make for a perfect Sunday School material.
