There is a great need for stimulating Bible teaching for early teenagers. They have grown out of coloring and stories, but are not sufficiently mature to read the type of Bible books written for adults. In 1991 when Michael Penny went to be pastor of Grace Church, he found their youth group enthusiastically using a text produced by Lynn Mrotek called 'A first Look at God's Word'. This text had been supplemented with background notes written by Carol Brown. Over the next eight years this short work books was expanded by Michael Penny, edited by Lynn Mrotek and Carol Brown, and tested by the early teens in their Sunday School. The result has been an attractively produced workbook written simply but not childishly. As such it will appeal to anyone of any age who has little or no knowledge of the Bible. The pages are well typeset with many maps, illustrations and cartoons. It uses puzzles, crosswords, word searches, puzzles and projects, to reinforce the teaching of the Bible. This book can be used by individuals or by groups. Not only would Sunday Schools and Vacation Bible Schools find this books of value, so too would familes, to work through together. Home schoolers will find a wealth of valubale lesson material in "Introducing God's Work".About the Author:
