This book teaches the basic principles of Christian education. Since it includes exercises in the back of the book ("Lesson Plans"), it needs no separate study guide.

We recommend studying the book with a pastor or mentor, and in groups if possible.

We recommend that the mentor evaluate a Bible study lesson (written or taught) in order to measure the student's learning.

See the link to purchase the book.
