“It sounds simplistic and old fashioned but it has God's stamp of approval. It is a return to the Bible. Our pulpits need to return to the unabashed exposition of Scripture. Our Sunday school classes and Bible studies need to toss the manuals and guides written about the Bible and open the Bible itself. In our local church we have dropped all commercial Sunday school curriculum -which has been watered down to the point of uselessness-and simply teach the Bible. Our 4-5 years old are being taught selected Bible stories. Ages 6 -7 will go through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation in those two years. Ages 8-9 will go through the Bible yet again. Ages 10-11 are being taught hermeneutics and Bible study methods and applying those methods to the study of the epistles. Ages 12-13 are taught Bible- college- level courses on systematic theology. High school students are taught the Bible with emphasis on biblical discernment. At this level many of them begin to teach children as well as their peers. All adult courses are focused on the study of scripture along with classes on church history, theology, and biblical living. All sermons are verse- by- verse expositions of the Word. Certainly our teachers use commentaries and Bible study aids but is it is the Scriptures themselves that are studied.”
(Gary Gilley, This Little Church Went To Market, 113-114)
