The third in a six-volume set, this volume of Bible Study Notes covers I Samuel, II Samuel, I Kings, II Kings and Psalms, providing a uniquely Swedenborgian view of their meaning, from the birth of Samuel to Psalm 119.
Originally written for Sunday school teachers, the book is divided into five age groups: beginner (ages 6-8), junior (ages 9-11), intermediate (ages 12-14), senior (ages 15-17) and adult. Each lesson focuses on imparting knowledge of the literal sense of the Bible, its spiritual sense, New Church Doctrines, and worship.
The lessons are geared toward the life experience and level of understanding of that particular age group, and Dole gives practical advice in each lesson for helping children and adults relate to the Bible. Each lesson contains an overview of the points to be discussed, notes for parents and teachers, text with discussion questions for each age group, related readings from Swedenborg, and questions that review and test students’ understanding.
This classic study tool is perfect for study groups and Sunday school as well as for individuals who want to develop a deeper understanding of the meaning of the Bible.
