Journey Through The Bible - Pre-Order

Scott Brown
Pre-Order


  • This is a book about reading the whole Bible to your family. I’ve spent many years urging families to read the entire Bible together annually. I believe there are few things as urgent and as important as the need to bring the whole counsel of God into your home.  This is best accomplished by reading the Bible to your children every day.

    This book is for parents who need a concise guide to explain the books of the Bible to their children. It did not come out of a theoretical or academic environment.  Rather, is a product of our family worship times as we read the Bible together as a family.

    As our children were growing up, our family made a practice of reading the Bible from cover to cover. We did this for many years. We read around four chapters per day, usually in the morning.

    As each year passed, I kept adding to a document which contained introductory information about the book. I used this document as we were reading together to explain the meaning of each book to them. This book is a compilation of many of those notes.

    Use this as a guide as you read through the Bible as a family.

    This book is a product of our family worship times as we read the Bible together as a family.

    As our children were growing up, our family made it our practice to read the Bible from cover to cover. We did this for many years. Some of our children learned to read by reading progressively more words as we read the Bible together.

    We took turns reading going around the circle. The little ones would repeat one or two words that we coached them to pronounce. Those who could read would read one to five verses and the best readers would read five verses each. We would read around four chapters per day, usually in the morning.

    As each year passed, I kept adding to a document which contained introductory information about each book. I used this document to give my family background information for each book and to record the things I felt were important about it. By the time our children were adults, I had over 400 pages of notes. These notes documented the following kinds of information:

    • The historical context of each book of the Bible.
    • The questions I asked them. 
    • An explanation of the meaning of each book.
    • A list of the important matters of each book.
    • A list of key memory verses. 
    • A basic outline of each book

    This book is a compilation of these notes as well as notes I collected as I studied these books on my own and as I preached through them over the years.

  • “Great biblical helps for families was and their devotional times together are always necessary. Certainly, Scott Brown deserves to have us listen when we come to this subject.  This is a help for the family reading the Bible together.  If it encourages families to do more of that, it will serve our generation well.

    “A closed Bible is convicting no one, instructing no one, transforming no one. Yet Satan himself must retreat before the weapon of God’s Word when it is wielded with faith and skill. Because the Word of God gives life (1 Peter 1:23), and the Word of God brings growth (1 Peter 2:2), there is nothing more important than to familiarize ourselves and our families with its divine message. Scott Brown’s Journey Through the Bible is a helpful tool toward this end. This work is well organized, well studied, and well written. It’s subject matter is nothing less than glorious.”

    Here Scott Brown has provided an excellent introduction to the whole Bible for families. God has given the whole Word of God to equip our children for every good work, and the should not leave home without a familiarity with all 66 books.

    Scott Brown has carefully compiled pertinent information about each book of the Bible in an extremely accessible fashion. From overall themes, to key verses, to review questions, Journey Through the Bible is designed to aid the individual, the family, or the christian classroom in the study of God’s Word. It is a worthy resource that will benefit the Kingdom of Christ.

    Journey Through the Bible is not only excellent for the Christian who wants to be more familiar with the books of the Bible, but is an outstanding resource for parents who desire to instruct their children in this way. Originally written for this purpose, this volume should be in the home of every believer as a tool to equip us better to know, understand, and apply God’s blessed Word to our lives. I recommend it enthusiastically!

    As a parent who regularly leads my family in reading the Bible, I have been long searching for a resource that could help my children with comprehension and meditation. Scott Brown’s Journey Through the Bible is gold mine of valuable tools to aid families in studying Scripture together. It is everything I’ve been seeking: helpful background information, practical application, hymns, memory verses, study questions, and more for each book of the Bible. There is nothing more powerful for my family’s spiritual life than understanding and meditating upon Scripture, and Journey Through the Bible helps us do just that. I will be using this book with my own family and recommending it to others!

    “Disciple-makers are more concerned with giving people all that Jesus taught, than teaching just parts of the Bible. Scott has given the church a necessary tool, exploring major themes and formulating the necessary questions, with a clear focus on Christ. This book can be used as a framework for those who desire to study the whole Bible systematically. Every pastor should have it on his desk and recommend it to his new converts and families in the church.”

    “Whether you have just started leading family worship or have done so for years, you will find much in Scott Brown’s remarkable Journey through the Bible to equip you to open the Word with your family. It offers many helps for each book of the Bible, including a memory verse, overview, top five facts, theme, author, audience, key verses, lessons, and outline. Two especially helpful features are suggestions for how to see Christ in each book of the Old Testament and a list of study questions and answers for discussion with your family.”

    Don't forget your guide map...

    Journey through the Bible, written by Scott Brown, an experienced guide, who has trod the path with his wife and family through the pages of Scripture many times before. Along the way, he has recorded some of the soaring peaks to ascend and dangerous crevasses to avoid, helping both novice and experienced explorers alike. The impact of taking this Journey through the Bible during your family devotions will be incalculable in the life of your children.  

    Craig D. Houston

    PASTOR, WESTSIDE BAPTIST CHURCH


    Journey Through the Bible is a trustworthy and straightforward study tool to place into the hands of any family. It has been forged out of years of family instruction and personal study. Scott Brown has provided an instructor and catechiser for every book and chapter of the Bible. The content is thoroughly researched and yet is most accessible, that even older children should be able to follow. The hymns, memory verses, facts to remember, and study questions will be a helpful tool to guide the Christian in their systematic reading of the Scriptures. It is made to be used and not merely for reference! I commend this as a valuable guide to any father or mother, and Christians of any age seeking a more applied approach to the study of the Word of God. I wish I had this as a new Christian!
