Raising Children: Final part of How to Live as a Christian course

The final part of the course looks at how we should raise children. Passing the faith on to the next generation is key – how do we do it?

In this session we cover:

  • What the Bible says about children and families;
  • Some practical ways that parents can pass their faith on to children;
  • Some practical ways that the church can help;
  • Resources to help you.

This brings to a close the How to Live as a Christian course, which is now available to complete on the website or the app.

The How to Live as a Christian series is designed to help new (and not-so-new) Christians get up to speed about living in the way God wants us to. It’s designed to be practical, so that it’s not just all about the theory. You can now do the course on the website here.

How to read the Bible for beginners

As a beginner, how do you start to read the Bible? And where should you start? And what version of the Bible should you use? All these questions, and more, covered here! This is the third part of the How to Live as a Christian video course. This is a course aimed at beginners or those new to faith about the basics of living a Christian life.

If you’re interested in Christianity and reading the Bible but you don’t know where to start, this would be good for you.

I mention this in the video, but if you’d like some help I have just started a Learn to read the Bible series. This is aimed at helping beginners to start reading the Bible for themselves. The idea is to help you learn to read the Bible for yourself. It’s not about giving you all the answers, but how to think so you can read the Bible on your own.

All the resources to help you get started reading the Bible are listed on this page.

Through the Bible Through the Year by John Stott

The particular book I mentioned is Through the Bible Through the Year by John Stott.

This is a very helpful book which takes you through the whole Bible in a year. He gives you a short verse to read every day with a couple of paragraphs about it. I think it’s a brilliant resource for people new to the Bible. The late John Stott was a wonderful Bible teacher with a gift for communication.

How to live as a Christian series complete

I have finished the “How to Live as a Christian” series! All nine parts of the course have now been completed. The final five are about Communion, Service, Money, Marriage and Parenting.

All of these things are important aspects of the Christian life which it’s important to get a handle on to live life as a Christian. This series has been written particularly with people new to faith in mind. You can see the whole thing on the series page.

Once you’ve done that, why not try signing up for the teaching programme, where you can do a course like the Heidelberg Catechism – a comprehensive overview of the Christian faith?
