Start a collection on your bookshelf!
In Deuteronomy 17:18, future kings of Israel were commanded to not simply get a copy of the law, but to hand-write their own copy, for themselves. Centuries later, educators have discovered that students who write out their own notes by hand have a much greater retention rate than simply hearing or reading. Our God knew this long ago! With this idea in mind, the Journibles series has emerged.
Each book is organized so that you can write out your very own copy of Scripture. Yes, you are the scribe in these volumes! You’ll write the Bible text on the right hand page of the book. On the left side, you are given space to write your own notes and comments.
How to Use These Books
Each book is organized so that you can write out your very own copy of Scripture. You will be writing the Bible text only on the right hand page of the book. This should make for easier writing and also allows ample space on the left page to write your own notes and comments. From time to time a question or word will be lightly printed on the left page; these questions are to aid in further study, but should not interfere with your own notes and comments.
“There is an old proverb that says ‘Thoughts disentangle themselves when passing over the lips and through the finger tips.’ The 17:18 Series which encourages us to actually write out the words of Scripture will be a tremendous tool in putting that proverb into action in our daily lives. I am happy to commend this project.” -Jerry Bridges
“Rob Wynalda’s The 17:18 Series encapsulates the biblical mandate to write Scripture on the tables of our hearts. By writing out Scripture ourselves and buttressing that with answering questions and taking notes about the texts, we will grow immensely in hiding the Word in our hearts and exemplifying it in our lives. This series of books is suitable for children and adults, for lay people and ministers, for Bible study classes and private devotions. Try a volume yourself. By the Spirit’s grace, your soul will prosper, and you will want to write out the whole of Scripture.” – Dr. Joel R. Beeke
