Bible Quest is a classical Bible curriculum complete with memory work, CD, review activities, maps, and a timeline.
There are 40 weeks of learning in either the Old Testament or New Testament curricula. We have the Old Testament Bible Quest Deluxe Set, but it is the same format in the NT set. You can buy the curriculum in either KJV or CEV (both versions are in the public domain), but it would be very easy to use another translation if your family preferred (the memory verse songs wouldn’t be helpful anymore though).
Each week includes who, what, where, when, and why for a particular Bible story or person. Included per week: a Bible memory verse, key sentences about a particular person or event to memorize, information about where the events are located (with maps to find the location), and even further activities if time allows. On Bible Quest’s site, you can see what a sample week looks like here.
What features I like:
- The simple 2-page layout
- The Bible timeline with simple icons representing the different time periods
- The small cards with the key facts to memorize each week on them
- There are further activities in case we would have time for more learning.
- The multi-age format (where you can just use 1-2 sentences a week and the Bible verse to memorize with a younger child)
- That you can learn key facts about a particular event or person that you don’t already know (for instance, weeks include: Hezekiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel – people I am less familiar with)
- There are songs for the Bible verses and the timeline
- The timeline poster (one of our favorite parts of the curriculum although we don’t have a place to hang it right now and have to roll it out each time)
- Having Bible maps to reference while studying God’s Word
- Being able to use the small cards for review games and other activities to keep the memory work fresh
- The support and extra help available through their site (a forum for asking questions and getting review ideas)
Even though there are tons of things we like about this curriculum, it hasn’t been a good fit for our family in the stage we are in. We are facing our 2nd move this year while homeschooling as well as living around boxes and living in a temporary place. I think my brain can’t handle anything “new” right now.
At first, I thought I would just pack the curriculum away after I wrote this review and save it for a time when our life isn’t so crazy, but then I thought that maybe there is a family that the curriculum could be a blessing for right now.
With that in mind, I decided to give away our copy of Bible Quest instead.
