- Was this teaching them anything meaningful about the life of Jesus? Perhaps. It majored on the details of his story.
- Was this teaching them anything about the value of studying the Bible regularly? Well, it was teaching them that doing it daily meant daily discomfort.
- Was it, at the very least, a good method of improving their penmanship? No. After a couple weeks, they were DONE answering those questions.
- Was this doing anything to help transform them into fully devoted followers of Christ? Nada. They hated this book, hated the time we spent it in, moaned and groaned and I'm sorry for putting them through the experience.
And I'm pretty sure, the point is not to make them hate studying the Bible.
