Reading the Bible with your children

Written by Alan Witchalls. Posted in Musings.

I recently posted a picture on Facebook of Joshua and I (with Leoni joining in) reading the Bible together one Friday afternoon after work. A few days later, I was speaking with a friend who commented to me how they loved the idea of reading the Bible with their children but wouldn't know how to do it or where on earth to begin.

I am convinced that reading the Bible with our children is not only the main way of bringing our children up to know and follow Jesus, but is also really easy and straightforward (certainly once you have done it a couple of times and overcome the initial uncertainty of what you are doing). And so I've written down some brief thoughts on why we should read the Bible with our children and how to go about actually doing it.
