Bible literacy is a growing concern in the Church, even among those who grew up in Christian homes. Sometimes our children know the Sunday School stories, but they don’t know how to read and study the Word for themselves. Join me as I have a discussion with Abby Banks about the case for Bible literacy, why it’s important to find resources that dive deeper than simply learning Bible facts, and how families can start studying whole books of the Bible together – even if you never learned yourself!

Watch Episode 15 below.

Abby Banks is a former classroom teacher, now homeschool mom of five and pastor’s wife. Even though she grew up in a Christian home, she was never taught how to read and understand the Bible. After learning how to deep dive into the Word using the inductive method, Abby has taught it to kids, teens, and women in various church and homeschool contexts for the last 20 years. Her Inductive Bible Study Courses for K-12 give families a step-by-step resource for learning to study the Word together. You can find her at and the Homeschool with Moxie Podcast.
