Book Summary

Why the 17:18 series?
In Deuteronomy 17, Moses is leaving final instructions concerning the future of Israel. As a prophet of God, Moses foretells of when Israel will place a king over the nation (v. 14). In verse 18, the king is commanded to not simply acquire a copy of the law (the entire book of Deuteronomy) from the scroll publishing house, but to hand write his own copy of the law. Thirty-four hundred years later, educators are discovering that students that physically write out their notes by hand have a much greater retention rate than simply hearing or visually reading the information. Apparently, God knew this to be true of the kings of Israel also. From such understanding came the conception of this series of books.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.

Book Review by Bree Herron

Looking for a way to strength your verse knowledge? Want to find a deeper level to your understanding? These books will help you with that and more. I found that it was the reading, and writing, that would allow me to fully grasp the verse and focus on the words. It is a simple journible, where you won’t find doodles, or drawings to color. Those can be a distraction to me and I appreciated the simple just beautiful look this book held.

I would be curious to do other books in this collection. It helped me to understand John more and to grasp details I didn’t know were there before. It is a must have for Christians.
