JOURNIBLE 17:18 SERIES

I opened this journal and started a new way to discover the Bible. I have never done anything like this before.  But I sat down with a pen, a Bible and this book and off I went.


What did I learn?  I learned that there was so much more to learn.  I learned that by writing the verses out that I really learned the verses.  They became more than just words.

I was thrilled that the Journible we received was written by Luke.  This has always been a favorite of mine.  Luke was an interesting man.  He was a gentle.  He was an educated physician.  

This would be a great gift for anyone.  It also would be a lasting legacy passed on to the next generation to save and treasure.  There is so much information in this book.  I would have a difficult time picking out a favorite passage.  One of mine is the following:

Luke 11:9
"So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you." NIV

I received this free to review.

About these Books

Exodus PhotoTitle: Journible: The 17:18 Series
Author: Robert Wynalda (a local businessman) and Dr. Joel R. Beeke (President of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary)
Genre: Non-fiction, Bible study tool
Release Date: Series released in 2009
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.

  1. Jeanette,

    I've completed a Chronological reading plan of the entire Bible these past 3 years. I'm thinking about slowing down next year and really lingering in the text. These journals seem like the perfect fit for what I'm looking to do.

    Thanks for your review.
