If you are a Christian parent, you know that you cannot rely on your church’s children’s ministry to install knowledge of Scripture into the minds and hearts of your children. The Everything Kids Bible Trivia Book: Stump Your Friends and Family With Your Bible Knowledge bridges the gap between book learning and actual application of biblical knowledge.
The questions in the book are straightforward. They cover the highlights of well-known Bible stories but then take it just a little deeper. For example, one question dealing with the creation story will ask whom a person leaves when she or he marries. The answer is “the parents.” Children between the ages of nine and 12 may have never really thought through this process, which opens up wonderful avenues for deep discussions on God’s design for Christian living.
Other questions get into the nitty gritty details of the Bible stories. When the servant approached Rebekah in an effort to take her home as a wife for Isaac, what did he give her? There are a number of answers but only one names the collection of jewels he handed her. Teaching children to read the Bible in detail and not just reading headings and few verses here and there is best done when they are still young.
There is a practical answer key at the end of each section, which makes it great for kids to quiz one another or for parents who might be stumped by some of the questions as well. At the end of the book, there are several resources for parents who want to find online resources for furthering their children’s understanding of Scriptures.
The Everything Kids Bible Trivia Book: Stump Your Friends and Family With Your Bible Knowledge is a great activity book for the Christian parent who is looking for something different to do during quiet times. It is a good idea to stay within the age range suggested since some of the questions are so detailed that they may cause a younger child to feel a bit lost. I highly recommend this book for parents and their children as well as homeschoolers.
