This fifth volume in The Bible for School and Home series begins with the long-awaited birth of Jesus, then considers the significance of His visit to the Temple, and His Baptism and Temptation. With the calling of the disciples, we move to the primary focus of this volume: His public ministry in Galilee. Some of the highlights include the discussions about the Sermon on the Mount, the Lord's Prayer, and the Parable of the Sower.
All eight volumes in The Bible for School and Home series, used in Charlotte Mason's schools, and intended for parents and teachers to use in preparing Bible lessons for the children in their charge. Each of the volumes contains two dozen or more lessons, preceded by the same lengthy introduction to sound teaching practices, a section which is well worth reading. For each lesson, Smyth specifies the Biblical passages to cover, then provides background information you can incorporate in your telling of the story to gain the interest of your children, carefully framed questions you can use to draw their attention to the main points, and ways you might direct the conversation to stir their affections and their actions.
