Finding a good family devotional Bible can be challenging. In our busy lives, it's hard to find something that we can all enjoy together, yet doesn't take too much time. Our family includes our devotionals in our morning time together.
When I was growing up in the church, there were foundational Bible stories that everyone knew. They were the backbone of our spiritual education. It seems that as churches have become more transient, and curriculum is becoming more relational, these Bible stories are not as known by the youth being raised in our modern churches. And that is okay.
Why is that okay? I believe that the job of transmitting the truths of the Bible has and always will be in the job description of the parent. The church supports us in the task of raising Godly young men and women, but we shouldn't be outsourcing our God given assignment. That is why I always have my eyes out for resources to build and strengthen my family's faith. The ESV Family Devotional Bible is a beautiful tool designed specifically to equip parents to fulfill their mission.
I was given a copy of the ESV Family Devotional Bible for free in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
Family Devotional Bible Features
There are many family devotional Bibles that our family has used and enjoyed over the years. The unique feature of this edition is that it weaves the family devotion segments throughout the complete ESV text. I love that as you are reading the beautifully illustrated stories, you have the full story to turn to once curiosity is peaked.
Each devotional contains a full color illustration, gospel-centered readings, discussion questions, and a key verse. The questions are designed to cultivate discussion that leads to application of the truths you're discussing.
There are 130 stories highlighted, and at the bottom of each, there is direction to the next text to read.
The back includes full-color, kid-friendly maps that the whole family will enjoy.
