Exploring the Bible: A Bible Reading Plan for Kids
When our children were young, Bible devotionals for their age group were nearly non-existent. Those that were available were either too overwhelming or too watered down, so we were forced to cobble together a program that satisfied our desire that our kids would develop the habit of daily Bible reading. If only we’d had access to Exploring the Bible: A Bible Reading Plan in those days!

Exploring the Bible: A Bible Reading Plan for Kids has made it easy for today’s involved parent. The author, David Murray’s experience with his own children helped him write a book that could be used daily, incorporating the optimum amount of verses each day. Substantive but not overwhelming, Exploring the Bible: A Bible Reading Plan for Kids picks out the central portions throughout the Bible that give children an overall view of the whole Bible and the plan of redemption. This 365-day plan will guide your children through key passages from Genesis to Revelation.

Each week starts with a short overview, a place to note any prayer requests, and a space to write out that week’s memory verse. Each day your child will read a kid-sized portion of Scripture and then either answer a question or write out a verse. Sundays are set aside for reinforcing the big picture, and to jot down the sermon text, title, and a few notes. Your child won’t read every verse in the Bible, but he will hit all the highlights and gain an all-round exposure to the big picture, how the different books relate to one another and to our lives. Exploring the Bible: A Bible Reading Plan for Kids is an unmatched tool for leading your children into that holy habit of being in God's Word each day.

Awards and Endorsements:
“There is so much I could say to commend Exploring the Bible, but any praise would pale in comparison to this, the ultimate parental endorsement: I gave all three of my children Exploring the Bible as their very first experience of personal devotions. All three used it, all three enjoyed it, and all three benefited tremendously from using it. I wholeheartedly recommend it for your children, too.”
— Tim Challies, blogger, Challies.com

“This Bible reading plan has it all—engaging graphics, kid-sized reading assignments, space for reflection, and helpful commentary. What an exciting endeavor—to help children read (for themselves!) an overview of the Bible in a year! I can’t wait to give away copies of Exploring the Bible to the kids in my life.”
— Gloria Furman, author, Missional Motherhood and Treasuring Christ When Your Hands Are Full

“Too many times children are told about the Bible without ever being encouraged to read the text themselves. In his book Exploring the Bible, David Murray has given a gift to disciple-making parents everywhere. This resource will help children and families dig into the riches of the Bible while subtly teaching the necessity of daily reading and learning with God’s people. I can see individual children using it or whole families sharing their discoveries around the dinner table. As you seek to raise disciples who are hungry for and knowledgeable of the Word, this resource will be invaluable.”
— Chap Bettis, author, The Disciple-Making Parent

Exploring the Bible has been carefully crafted. The passages selected, the layout and design, and the opportunities given for children to reflect and respond will work in concert to guide them into an understanding of what the Bible is all about. I hope it is widely used”
— Kenneth Berding, Director, Bible Fluency; Professor of New Testament, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University; author, Bible Revival: Recommitting Ourselves to One Book

“Encouragingly brief, carefully chosen passages lead explorers through the main ideas of the entire Bible in 365 days, with captions and questions to sharpen their focus. Wonderful weekly peaks connect the Old and New Testaments, pointing to Jesus, reinforcing the big picture, and urging personal application. This treasure is at the top of my gift list for new Bible explorers!”
— Gail Schoonmaker, illustrator, The Big Picture Story Bible; author, Big Picture Bible Crafts

“Without guidance and a plan, children will flounder when trying to read and understand the Bible on their own. That’s why resources like David Murray’s book are so important. I don’t even want to imagine what my Christian life and my ministry would have been without the encouragement and structure for daily Bible reading I received as a child. But if I’d had something like Exploring the Bible, I think my scriptural foundations would have been even stronger.”
— Donald S. Whitney, Associate Dean and Professor of Biblical Spirituality, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; author, Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life and Praying the Bible

“An important, but often neglected, part of the education we provide for our children is instruction in the actual contents of the Bible. We give our children math flashcards and grammar workbooks, we enroll them in music lessons and put them on sports teams, but we often don’t know where to begin to teach them what’s in the Bible. Exploring the Bible will get elementary-school-aged children started reading Scripture on their own, giving them a grasp of its overall big picture as they read.”
— Starr Meade, author, Training Hearts, Teaching Minds; The Most Important Thing You’ll Ever Study; and Give Them Truth

LOVE this!

Our little guy is 5. We wanted him to have open devotional, that was nice and would grow with him. He loves it! It has helped us have time to do a devotional tougher, we write down what he says, and one day he will write. I love how nice the book it. It makes me smile each time I see it, I even want one as a mom. Haha. We will get one for our youngest when he turns 5, hopefully,
