The LIFE Plan is a six-volume disciple-making curriculum. It is designed with the purpose of preparing followers of Jesus for a life lived according to His purpose and glory. The volumes contain a total of 216 lessons. Each lesson contains a sermonette, lesson outline, scriptures to broaden understanding, ideas for theological connection, and questions pertaining to the lesson. An answer key is included at the back of each book.
- Volume 1 The Bible’s Story (Genesis 1-11)
- Volume 2 Abraham and Israel
- Volume 3 The Structure of the Bible
- Volume 4 The Life of Jesus on Earth
- Volume 5 The Church
- Volume 6 Your Personal Ministry
When initially signing up for the review my intention was to use the books as a bible study with my kids. I did read aloud to them the first lesson of volume one. Although there was scripture within the sermonette, my upper elementary student questioned the lack of scripture to introduce the teaching. I decided to take a few days to review other volumes independently to determine how to better present the study.
Following each sermonette, the lesson outline provides an explanation of the lesson aim, and topics the teaching covers. There is ample scripture to broaden a student’s understanding. I found several lessons that did reference a scripture passage prior to the sermonette. Reading through a variety of lessons within several volumes, I felt my high school son would be a better selection for the writing style of this curriculum.
My son is beginning with volume five. After reading a sermonette, and corresponding scripture listed within it, he is assigned to read the additional scriptures for broadening understanding.
Although all of my kids understand the biblical truths the lessons present, the sermonette style is not their preferred reading. From my own study of the lessons, and study of scripture, I will be able to adapt how the materials are presented.
The LIFE Plan curriculum could be used as a group study, or within a church ministry. Its aim is to equip the reader to live intentionally and strategically for God. Visit the Review Crew to read how others are using The LIFE Plan.
