Why have a study guide for a novel?

 "Shepherd, Potter, Spy—and the Star Namer" is a Bible study disguised as a novel."

Inject adventure and excitement into Bible Study for teens and tweens: family devotions, youth group, school settings. Gain a deeper love for God’s word through a thirteen-unit companion to Shepherd, Potter, Spy—and the Star Namer. Immersed in the events of Joshua 9-10 and events of the Israelites’ last year of desert wanderings (O.T. Numbers-Joshua), read the holy text more closely. Add points of interest to a map of Canaan and visualize the historicity of Bible events. Follow internet links to reinforcement opportunities. Look at archaeological evidence. Compare and contrast reader’s life with the Late Bronze Age. Through YouTube learn two ways to sling a sling stone, cross the flooded Jordan River in a kayak, and explore the ancient border of Moab in the narrow 300-foot deep Arnon River Gorge’s raging waters, etc. Short writing assignments inspire and motivate the student to read more and learn more.
