Bible Curriculum: My Volcano Adventure

From: Dorthea L and Through The Bible Publishers

Children ages 6 to 12 will love My Volcano Adventure as they travel with Dee, Cy, Paul, and their dog Chip to the Philippines where they meet Bible translators. In this adventure, your kids will discover how we got the Bible and why. They will learn about the Bible’s authority, its message, and its purpose. The adventure reaches a peak when someone gets trapped in a flow of molten lava and learns first-hand about the amazing power of God’s Word!

My Volcano Adventure is a brand new cooperative publishing effort from Through the Bible Publishers and Wycliffe. It teaches elementary students about:
– Authority
– Revelation and inspiration
– Canonization
– Inerrancy
– The redemption message
– A synopsis of the Old and New Testament
– How to navigate through the Bible
– The Bible’s transforming power
– Why the Bible has different translations
– Interpreting God’s Word and proclaiming it to the world

Each lesson devotes an entire page to the process of modern day translation projects around the world. Great artists and fun activities bring the lessons to life.
