I believe it is 11 weeks.

I was just curious how to know if we are answering the questions correctly?
We are only on week #3 and just had a couple questions we weren't sure about in Job.
Thanks for any help.

I kept up/we discussed Leviticus last week. 36 chapters of Deuteronomy in 5 days is a killer. My dd's mind is numb...she's admitted to the fact that she is finding this portion boring and hard to follow. I have heard that those books are the graveyard for people who have attempted to read through the Bible in a year. I forgot. I believe it now. I have to keep telling her to plug on and how much she'll enjoy Joshua!!! The saving thing is Taking the OT challenge because it makes good connections and has opened our eyes to things we had not seen before. I know this is good, but wow!!!!!
Other than those three books of the Bible, we have really hit our groove with this. I was wondering if we would. It just took a while for things to feel natural and to get a feel for how long it would take. This is good stuff!! The discussions have been good. The Biblical discussions have pertained a lot to things we are going through right now and they are helping dd to see things from God's pov. God is always timely like that.

BHelf wrote:One other thing about reading through the OT is that when you do finally get through those books and read all or most of the OT, the NT really starts to click and you'll finally "get" some things that you may not have understood before. I did an in depth bible study quite a few years ago and the NT made even more sense to me after reading most of the OT. So it can give your child a great perspective on why things were written they way they were and why this or that phrase meant so much to the Jewish people or to the Gentiles or whatever.

I know the books cover more material, but the videos are a great tool for those who don't read much, or are just so busy.

The New AnswersBook 3 has 38 questions, the DVD 3 says it has 18 topics, all based from topics in the Ans.Bk.3: Was their death before Adam sinned, Where was the Garden of Eden located?, Doesn't the Bible support slavery?, What is the best argument for the existence of God? Vestigial organs - evidence for evolution?, What about cloning and stem cells?, Did Bible authors believe in a literal Genesis?, Did life come from outer space?, Does evolution have a chance?, What are some of the best flood evidences?, Unicorns in the Bible?, How can someone start new life in Christ? & 6 more.
I personally have not read the books [yet]. My dh is the book reader My 13 yo has read book 1 & parts of others. They are a good reference too, to go to specific chapters about certain topics ... I have done that a few times.
We just got the 3rd video when were down at the Creation Museum in October. If you haven't been there yet, I cannot recommend a better family vacation than to get to the Creation Museum. It's so AWESOME!! We spent 3 days in a row this time. We first went last Sept (3 days then too), and again in December for the Live Nativity. Well worth the 14 hour drive for us from northern MN.

No big deal, right?
