Book 66 is more than a logo; it is an opportunity that you would want to encourage your child or children to participate in, bringing meaning and purpose to God’s Word. The sheer reward is more than a learning time for your children, but a sharing and spiritual growing time as a family. 2 Timothy 3:15-17 (HCSB) ”and that from childhood you have known the sacred Scriptures, which are able to instruct you for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” Book 66 is based on John 17:17 (HCSB) ”Sanctify (set a part for special use) them by the truth; Your word is truth.” 

Churches and families are looking for ways of educating their children in the Word of God. What better way than Bible Drills. Bible Drills is an easy, proven effective method to teach children and youth Bible memory skills. Children’s Bible Drill, grades 4-6, Youth Bible Drill, grades 7-9, and High School Bible Drill, grades 10-12, provide an opportunity to use the Word of God to “teach a youth about the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it (Prov. 22:6 HCSB). Youth Speakers Tournament, grades 10-12, teaches youth skills in verbalizing their faith and using the Bible in all of life’s situations. 

Bible Drill and Speakers Tournament participants will learn to appreciate, revere and use God’s Word in life by developing personal spiritual disciplines.

A family learning and studying God’s Word together; what a good idea!
