Perfect for Families

Family studies are another premier forum.  The first organization God created was the family.  Discipleship is NOT succeeding in Christianity as it ought in large part because fathers are neglecting their role as the teacher in the home.  "[F]athers, provoke not your children to wrath:  but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord" (Eph. 6:4).

Parents feel overworked.  Providing an engaging Bible study is desired, yet many parents didn't experience family Bible studies as part of their childhood and do not believe that they have time to compile good research to make a Bible study interesting with depth.  Balancing the Sword equips Mom and Dad with a format that the whole family can enjoy.  BTS is designed so that the family can read the passage together and answer the questions together.  Cross references put thousands of hours of research at your fingertips.  So, you have an interactive study with depth.

It is recommended that you use Balancing the Sword as a family if possible (even if your children are all capable readers) because the discussions that will ensue are invaluable for deepening relationships.  Each study time gives parents several opportunities to convey faith lessons to their children and to discuss real life issues.  

Under different circumstances, it may be that a couple goes through the BTS program independently to enrich their conversation through the day.  She can go through volume one; he can go through volume two.  It may be that you are a single-parent mom or a loving grandmother who wishes to train up a Timothy (2Ti. 1:5; 3:15). 

Balancing the Sword will provide the structure.  Parents and children alike love the illustrations, charts, maps, and literal depictionsBTS is challenging to adults, but attainable for children.
