How many parents and youth ministers are eager to strive toward this goal for your students?

We need an education that puts the highest premium under God on knowing the meaning of God’s Book, and growing in the abilities that will unlock its riches for a lifetime.

John Piper, “A Compelling Reason for Rigorous Training of the Mind,” © 2015 Desiring God Foundation, www.desiringgod.org
Our newly released curriculum, Open My Eyes: A Study for Youth on Studying the Bible, was specifically designed to help your students grow in their ability to unlock the riches of God’s Book by teaching them Bible study skills. Here is a description:
Treasures are not for the fainthearted, and Bible study is hard work. But prayer, careful reading, and meditation, combined with good Bible study skills, produce a bountiful harvest of truth and understanding. Open My Eyes is a curriculum for senior high youth on how to study the Bible. It focuses on the different genres of biblical literature and the process of inductive Bible study, and provides opportunities to practice the skills of observation, interpretation, and application. The end goal is that students might understand God’s Word as the biblical authors intended, and begin a life-long journey of learning to know and treasure God through studying and applying His Word to their everyday lives.
We would love to share the blessing of this resource with a church, home school, Christian school, or missionary family by giving away an Open My Eyes Classroom Kit, including:
  • a Teacher’s Guide
  • a Resources DVD
  • one Student In-Class Notebook
  • one Student At-Home Journal
  • and one Inductive Bible Study Handbook

This is a combined value of up to $140.00. Contest open to readers over 18 years of age, except where prohibited by law. If the winner is located in the United States, he or she may choose from an Open My Eyes Print Classroom Kit (3-Ring or Spiral Bound) or Electronic Classroom Kit. International entrants are eligible to win an Electronic Open My Eyes Classroom Kit. The winner will be chosen at random and announced by Monday, August 31.

    Just finished studying Romans! What a wonderfully beautiful and challenging book!

    Leviticus or Revelation. Looks like a great resource. Would love to have this for our homeschool and for our church. Thanks!

    As for me to study on my own Bible Study was Romans, It is a very challenging book to study on my own. As for Bible Study with a group, Exodus which is another one that is very challenging. (I didn’t teach it but was a student in that Bible Study class.)

    Yes, I do pray for our youth to be hungry and eating His Word (Jer 15:16).

    I would love to win this for our church youth. (I am not a youth leader but a church librarian.)

    Thank you for this contest to allow us to enter to win this.

    Numbers. Collosal roll call. Getting through the names has always be a feat and then to read about the Israelites complete lack of faith over and again! … Prompted by The Spirit, He reminds me that MY insignificant name is written in His Book. Grace.

    For me the most challenging book to study has been Ecclesiastes from the OT and Romans from the NT. Solomon had great wisdom and experiences, can be a difficult book to think through and emotionally deal with at times. Romans has such great and rich theology and I taught it with the college group at the Church I pastor and it was such a blessing for me to study and the students to learn from as well.

    I would love to win this new curriculum as we plan to teach it Fall 2016 to our high school youth Sunday school class. We are about to begin Rejoicing in God’s Good Design this coming fall.

    The Minor Prophets are the most challenging for me, specifically, Obadiah. We just got 2 new youth pastors so this would be a great resource for them!

  7. Tess August 19, 2015 at 9:07 am #

    There are some tough things in every book but what comes to mind today is Ezekiel and what the sacrifices of the new temple will mean in the new heavens and earth. Thankful for this opportunity to win this curriculum as a home school mom of 4 teens right now!

    Hosea

    Great giveaway!

    For me, one of the most challenging books of the Bible I keep coming back to is Philippians. The theme of joy in the context of prison for Paul is truly amazing to think about and challenges me to have the right attitude no matter what the circumstances. I can do that when God is my supreme joy. When I find satisfaction in Christ, I can find joy in the tough circumstances of life. “To live is Christ and to die is gain”, Philippians 1:21, is a truth to seek to live by as a Christ-follower.

    Love this idea! As a youth pastor, this resource would prove to be so beneficial and fruitful!

    My favorite book in the bible to study is Ephesians- so much good stuff! Really hits me that God chooses us and that we do NOTHING to earn salvation. That is a lesson I need to learn over and over and over because it is so counter cultural!

  11. Hope Wiseman August 20, 2015 at 11:12 am #

    Romans!

  12. Anne August 20, 2015 at 11:15 am #

    Psalms has so much to understand,apply and challenge!

  13. Chelsea August 20, 2015 at 12:55 pm #

    I just did an intensive study on The Psalms of ascent. I always need help to really understand background of the author and what is going on to fully get the picture of what is written and love it when I come to a better understanding of the Bible.

  14. Tim August 21, 2015 at 10:03 am #

    The Lord has used the book of Psalms many times to encourage me through difficult and challenging circumstances. He’s also used the book of Romans throughout my life to remind me who I was apart from him and who I am now by His grace covered in the blood of His Son.

    Thank you Children Desiring God for making resources like these available to everyone.

    I find the most challenging book to be Esther. Full, rich, story. Abundant in it’s depiction of God’s grace and redemption, but challenging because of it’s familiarity and straight forward narrative. It becomes much easier to focus on the characters rather than the God who wrote their story.

  16. Taryn August 23, 2015 at 5:42 am #

    A few years back, I did a study of Romans with my Ladies’ Bible Study. As I prepared, I would listen to John Piper’s sermons about those passages. It was the most challenging and rewarding study I’ve done yet.

  17. Jane Meacham August 23, 2015 at 5:23 pm #

    For me the book of Revelation has always been challenging!

  18. Jessica Williams August 25, 2015 at 12:46 am #

    One of the most interesting books I have studied is the book of Esther. Though the book does not mention God’s name, He can be clearly seen throughout the book!

  19. Dana August 25, 2015 at 2:53 pm #

    Our church just completed studying Titus. This book shows the importance of sound doctrine and warns against false teachers. That is why this new curriculum series is so exciting. Can’t wait to instruct the youth in studying the bible so they aren’t led away by false doctrine, leaders or our cultural worldview.

    How humbling it is to read how Stephen forgave those that were persecuting him in the book of Acts. What a great message for us to see others through the eyes of Christ with love and forgiveness.

  21. Malissa Beamer August 25, 2015 at 8:12 pm #

    Many years ago as a new bride, just learning more scripture. I was amazed by a study of the book Song of Solomon.

  22. Maria Samoylovich August 26, 2015 at 12:00 am #

    Acts, recently been reading it slowly and seeing the work of the Holy Spirit in the apostles and church, the presence of Christ in a way they never knew.

    Revelation

  24. scott August 26, 2015 at 12:38 pm #

    Going through Proverbs is always a good challenging read as it addresses so many issues we face.

  25. Robyn August 26, 2015 at 1:42 pm #

    Job is very challenging!

  26. Kim August 26, 2015 at 6:03 pm #

    romans!

  27. Beth August 26, 2015 at 11:22 pm #

    Our family studied Romans last spring; this was by far the most eye-opening, gospel-revealing, yet intriguing book I have ever studied — and I feel we just scratched the surface! I think I could study Romans every day for the rest of my life and God would continue revealing Himself and His goodness more and more each day!

  28. Lyn August 27, 2015 at 11:46 am #

    Hope its not too late to enter. Looking for something deeper to train up the next generation.
    Romans was eye opening.

    I just finished an inductive study on the book of Hebrews and my heart rejoices. This book changed my entire viewpoint of saving faith, enduring to the end as a necessity and the reason for suffering (discipline). This has become one of the most transformative books of the Bible for me and has increased my desire to seek more and more.
