What is more important than reading the Bible? Reading the Bible as a family! Having a family devotional time each day is the perfect way to engage in God’s Word with your loved ones.
Our Bible time happens in the mornings right after breakfast and morning chores. We usually sing a few hymns, pray, read a Bible story, and work on scripture memorization. Recently, I had the opportunity to review Crossway’s ESV Family Devotional Bible. (Scroll down to the bottom of the post for the giveaway!)
ESV Family Devotional Bible
First, let me tell you what the ESV Family Devotional Bible is and what you’ll find in it:
The ESV Family Devotional Bible is a Bible AND devotional all-in-one. There are 130 devotionals interspersed among the text that feature key stories from the Bible. With each devotional, you will find (1) the Biblical text from which the devotional is taken, (2) a lovely Gospel-centered, narrative-style devotional, (3) discussion questions, (4) key verses, and (5) additional references.
- 130 full-page, full-color illustrations
- Full-color, kid-friendly maps
- Reflection questions for the whole family to discuss
- Ribbon marker
The goal of the ESV Family Devotional Bible is to help families read and apply God’s Word together — as a family — so that reading the Bible becomes a habit.
This is one example of the beautiful illustrations included with each devotional in the ESV Family Devotional Bible. Each devotional also includes discussion questions, a key verse, and additional references for further reading.
