The Family Bible Library

Written by Jonathan on . Posted in Blog, Family Devo Tips, Family Devotions

This is the best resource to get your children to love the Word.  You will use this until your children are grown and then you will use them with your grand-kids!!Children love stories and the Family Bible Library provides even more than passages of scripture in story form!!  The FBL includes interesting insights to scripture such as: timelines, cultural information, geography, diagrams, and great photos in a way that broadens their understanding and experience.

Lead your family to grow in the knowledge and love of the Lord by regularly having family devotions.

REVIEWS:

Pastor Brad Fink
“I love the Family Bible Library!  As a Pastor you would think I would be good at doing family devotions, yet this was always a challenge until we began using the Family Bible Library.  We are able to do devotions now with our 9, 6 and 2 year old boys, and they all are engaged.  The discussion questions make leading a conversation about the bible story natural and meaningful.  I would highly recommend this to any family who would like to pass their faith on to their kids!”

Scott Armistead

“My children love the Family Bible Library. They enjoy having their daddy read to them. They listen well. They love to see the pictures.  The questions are engaging.  We have had some great faith discussions because of our morning devotion time with the Family Bible Library.”    

Erik Natwick

“Family Bible Library makes leading family devotions easy for dad and the kids are enjoying it, too!  Thanks for this great resource.  I’m looking forward to using it for years to come!”  

Richard Perkins

“We love our Family Bible Library! It’s awesome for the whole family.  We are 1/2 way through the second time.  It gives us a reference point as we teach our children about self-control and discipline.  It’s an awesome set of books. Our children love it when we finish a volume, because they get to open the next one.  Thanks, Homes Devoted!!!”

I hear from dads all the time, “What is a good devotional I can use for family devotions?”  Without a doubt, hands down, this is the best resource!  I can say this, because we have used it for over 10 years!  People in church would ask, “How do your children know the Bible so well?”   This was our answer.These Biblical stories stay true to the Biblical account and are suitable for all denominations. 

Each story has questions that are relevant to children at varying ages.  You can ask the provided questions as well as add your own. They also have loads of additional information in the margins with historical, cultural facts, topical subjects, etc.  (The Family Bible Library is like a Biblical encyclopedia!)

Here is a video I quickly put together to share with friends who wanted to know about the FBL:

Sample pages from the books:

HOW CAN THE FBL BE USED FOR DECADES?

There are 6 volumes of story devotions from Genesis-Revelation.  It could take a year to go through the whole FBL.  You can always substitute when the holidays come with appropriate devotions (for instance Lent or Advent), but when those are done, you always have the Family Bible Library to come back to.  As our children have grown, we have gone through them again and again.  Since they are also growing and maturing, they have deeper questions and understanding just like when we reread scripture.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

$199. (Retail $350) How much have you paid for a story Bible? $10-$15?  How long did it last?  1 month? 3 months?   How much money do you spend on leading your family towards knowing God?  Is there anything more important?

OTHER GREAT INFO:

The last book, Volume 8, has chapters entitled “A Guide To Parenting,”  “A Guide to the 36 Building Blocks of Character.” “How to Build These Building Blocks into Your Children.”  and more.  Click to see the table of contents of this volume.  Page 1  Page 2

    In the 80s a couple whose kids were grown passed their 1971 set to my family.
    I have never seen it, assumed it was out of print, and consequently have not recommended it to young families Thank you for featuring this. I have now posted to my parents FB page and will recommend in future seminars.
