Bible Lessons for Youth is a curriculum that
helps teens apply the Bible to their real-life. Its teacher-friendly
format is built around a step-by-step sequence with thought-provoking
activities designed to help youth understand Scripture and apply it to
their individual experiences.
Each session is broken up into small segments that are designed to make
teaching Bible Lessons for Youth easy. The student book is reproduced as
the center piece of each session in the leader guide and is surrounded
by the minute-by-minute teaching plans printed in the margin. The
instructions are provided for student book activities, discussion
questions, illustrative games and short drama skits. Complete Scripture
texts are printed in all books. (No need to pause while everyone hunts
for the appropriate verse.) At any time during the quarter you can refer
back to the convenient Overview section found at the front of the
guide. Each unit also focuses on a particular spiritual discipline to
deepen the faith journey of your students and further information on
each can be found on the Spiritual Disciplines page in the leader guide.
Each lesson is divided into five activities. ENGAGE invites students
into the lesson, SCRIPTURE focuses on the Bible passage for the week,
FOCUS encourages teens to reflect on the passage, and CONNECT inspires
students to deepen their understanding of the Scripture's meaning.
Finally, each lesson ends with PRACTICE, where students utilize a
spiritual discipline to apply the lesson to their lives.
