I once asked a child from a Christian household “what is the Bible?” I will never forget her response – she said Jesus’s best friend. She went to church every week, yet somehow she missed the basics. She knew she should “Love Jesus” and “Be kind” as Sunday School taught her, yet she didn’t know the Biblical way to live her life. Sure she could rattle off some out of context Bible verses, but did not understand them in a life transforming way. What has happened to American Biblical education? Where did the days go where obedience hard work, and courage were praised on the basis of Scripture. Only a few generations ago children were taught large portions of Scripture and what it means – values and concepts from scripture that shape their worldview and how they think and act. Kids from today’s culture are no longer taught Biblical theology, and we are seeing the effects in today’s youth. God has called us to be a mission to America’s children and spread his true word through memorizing in-context scripture. In Jesus’ day 5-year-olds were memorizing Leviticus, we memorize hundreds of useless song lyrics – Why not use God’s gift of music to memorize His Word?
Imagine a world where you can walk into any Sunday school and ask who has memorized the Gospel of John? A third of the kids raise their hands… This is the world By the Book the Bible wants to create. Our Mission: To create a Biblically literate generation by giving families a fun way to memorize books and chapters of the Bible.
We value the Bible as God’s inspired word. We believe that the the Sword of the Spirit will use His Word to fight for the hearts and minds of the next generation. We value children and believe that they are capable of memorizing and understanding the Bible in a deep theological way that affects their daily lives. We value excellence in art, business, and programming, in order to create content that will effectively enable children to have fun memorizing.
