Review: "More Middle School Talksheets: Epic OT Stories"

The king of the “talksheets”, David Lynn is back and better than ever with his newest addition to his talksheet series of books with More Middle School Talksheets: Epic Old Testament Stories. It is the companion to his book released this spring, Middle School Talksheets: Epic Old Testament Stories.  As usual it provides 52 grab-and-go reproducible student handouts with teaching helps and lesson plans on the back of each.   It picks up where the first book left off midway through the book of Judges with the story of Barak and Deborah and closes out in II Kings with the story of King Josiah.  Each talksheet is well done and thought provoking.  Each sheet cuts to core of the story with discussion questions, age appropriate case studies and life application challenges.

Do not dismiss this book as a quick addition to the talksheet series.  Lynn comes back around with a fresh resource what is much needed for Middle school and Jr. High ministry.  If you are looking for a resource to help you go through the Old Testament with your students, look no further.  The combined resources of the two books give any youth worker two solid years of study.  If you are looking to complete the three year of your middle school ministry consider Lynn’s other book, Jr. High/Middle School Talksheets: Psalms & Proverbs: Updated , to round out your teaching schedule.
