Growing Up In Grace: Bible Characters - Book 2

The printed book is temporarily unavailable. Reformatted and revised edition available soon!

Teacher’s Manual for the Junior Level (Ages: 9-11)

Topics: Moses – Esther

Bible Characters Book 2 explains God’s dealing with mankind, from Jacob to Esther. Two dispensations identify this period of time: Promise and Law. A continuation of the timeline of people and dispensations is included, which concludes in Bible Characters Book 3. The teaching emphasizes God’s two-fold purpose and applying principles from the Word of God, as it is rightly divided.

Every lesson devotes time for Bible reading and memorization for students, object lessons, review games, and practical application of Biblical truth. Every lesson ends with a presentation of the Gospel and encouragement for students to study and apply the instruction they’ve received from God’s Word.

Each of the thirteen lessons contains:

  • Teacher’s outline
  • Memory verses (KJV)
  • Review questions and games
  • Object lessons
  • Reproducible student page
  • Color visuals
  • Encouragement
  • Application
  • Gospel presentation

Available in one format currently:

  • CD-ROM with lessons in PDF format*

* Teachers can print the lessons from the CD for classroom use. This may be a way to save money for some, but it should be noted that the graphics are not meant to be efficiently printed from a home printer, and printing at a local copy center may be expensive.
