Content

This resource aims to introduce, explain and explore the Christian faith, providing familiarity with the Bible story and context for widely used references in popular culture such as David and Goliath, the great flood or the good Samaritan.

It covers 36 key Bible passages in a year, each accompanied by a readable, ready-prepared thought for the day, including interactive questions, a prayer and a song suggestion. Each assembly offers a choice of traditional and contemporary versions of the Bible and of classic and modern Christian prayers to suit the school's preference.

Helen Lings is a theologian by education and a teacher by profession, most recently as head of Religious Studies and lay chaplain at an independent preparatory school. She has also written for Scripture Union's teaching resources.
