A Light to Guide You
Q: Which book of the Bible says God's Word is a light for your path?
Imagine this. You and a friend are on a camping trip with your parents. The two of you get permission to walk along a nearby nature trail. You pack snacks and bottles of water in your backpacks, and you start off.
You are having fun and forget to pay attention to the time. The sun is setting quickly, and you realize you'd better head back to the campsite. You know you just have to cut through the woods to get back.
"Which way?" you ask your friend.
"I don't know. What do you think?" Your friend looks around.
"I'm not sure. Everything looks different in the dark."
"Wait a minute. I think I have a flashlight in my backpack." Your friend digs around for a few seconds and pulls out a flashlight. The flashlight gets clicked on, and a bright beam of light cuts through the darkness.
"Point it over there," you say. "I think that's the way back."
Your friend shines the light where you point. Sure enough, your campsite is straight ahead. The flashlight has saved the day.
God says his Word will be a light for your path, just like the flashlight lights the path in the story above. The Bible tells you how to live, and it helps you make decisions. It's important to become familiar with the Bible so you can use it as your guide for life. Read from the Bible each day, and ask yourself how the Scripture applies to you.
When it comes to life's questions, you don't need to feel around in the dark, trying to find your way. You already have a light—the Bible. God's Word can guide you in making the right decisions and knowing what to do when you aren't sure of the way. Take time to read a few verses of Scripture every day.
Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path. Psalm 119:105
Make No Mistake
Q: Which word means "without error"?
Have you ever been at a family gathering where your parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles were telling stories about their past, but no one could agree on the details? Your dad starts telling about the time he borrowed the car to take your mom on their first date. But your grandfather corrects him about what kind of car it was. Then your mother tells your dad they didn't go to the restaurant he named for their date. It takes quite a while to get the details worked out, and it's possible not everyone agrees on the story.
The Bible contains many stories, but all of their details agree because God is the author of the Bible. He used around 40 different men to do the actual writing from their own personalities and experiences. But the message is always the same: humans have a problem—sin. God has the answer—salvation. That's amazing when you consider the Bible was written over a time period of around 1,500 years. And the men who wrote it were from three different continents and had various jobs—shepherd, tax collector, doctor, fisherman, and more.
The Bible doesn't contain mistakes, because God is the true author of the Bible. Although he used humans to record his words, the message is his.
There may be times when you're reading the Bible and it doesn't seem to match up. When that happens, ask a parent or a leader at church to help you find out why. Sometimes we may not understand the Bible, but God's message is always right.
Although the word infallible isn't used in the Bible, the Bible tells us that it's the Word of God and that God never makes mistakes.
All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. 2 Timothy 3:16

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
"The One Year Book of Bible Trivia for Kids" by Katrina Cassel is a great way to get your kids interested in learning more about the actual content of the Bible. This devotional style trivia book offers one question for every day of the year. The questions range from easy to more challenging, and would be appropriate for children ages 7 and up, in my opinion. The devotionals are dated, which was the only downside to this book for me. I prefer when devotionals don't actually have a date on them because unless you start on January 1, and don't miss a day of the readings, I feel like I am missing out! Each devotional poses a multiple choice question about the Bible, then a brief explanation of the answer, explaining the background and context of the Biblical times and the answer. Each devotional also offers a brief piece of advice/wisdom in the "For You" section. The bottom of the page also offers the multiple choice answer to the question posed, as well as Biblical quotes and the exact place where the answer can be found in the Bible. I thought this would be a wonderful way to get children more motivated to learn more Bible trivia. When posed in this way, the questions are interesting, and I really liked the fact that the answers were on the same page, with reference to where you can find more information in the Bible.
The One Year Book of Bible Trivia for Kids opens the door to brush up on Bible knowledge! This book may even possibly teach kids a few new things too. It's friendly format is basic, yet appealing. The meat of the book is straight to the point and readers will begin a yearly journey starting in Genesis and finishing with the book of Revelations. Each of the devotions has a title ( for example: A Willing Learner), a Question ( What Jew really wanted to preach about the Lord but didn't know Jesus was the Messiah), a multiple choice answer (a. Apollos, B. Agabus, C. Timothy), For You (a section that asks a question for the reader to contemplate the devotion at hand and apply it to their life), and the correct answer to the trivia question with the accompanying Bible Verse in which the answer is found ( in the devotion, I mentioned the answer is A and the story can be found in the book of Acts). The 365 Bibical Trivia devotions are written as if speaking to the reader. The age recommendations is 10 -14 year olds but I think even a younger child interested in their faith can grow from using this book daily. This devotion could even work for a family time discussion. Reading through the book, I was even challenged by some of the trivia questions!I recommend checking this book out for yourself. I'm sure it would be a blessing to any kid craving that deeper relationship God.
This is a terrific Bible trivia book for kids. My 8 year old is reading straight through it. She can't just read a page a day like recommended. This is perfect as a devotional for kids. Each day is one short page with a Bible story and a set of questions to keep the reader thinking on the lesson of the story. I think this is a perfect way for kids to learn more about the Bible while learning to apply the lessons to their lives. Cassel has another hit with this one!
