Book Review - Pass It On


There are many different kinds of legacies we can leave, but sharing yourself and your faith with the next generation will always stand the test of time. Through showing himself and his wisdom in the book of Proverbs, God has also left his legacy with us and relies on us to share it with our children and grandchildren. But before we can share that wisdom, first we must grow in our own understanding and knowledge and record, reflect, and consider what we have learned.

Pass it On provides readers with an opportunity to create a legacy of wisdom and faith and to share it with their children and grandchildren. As readers are guided through the book of Proverbs, they are asked to create their own personalized, wisdom journal with the aim of giving it to someone they love. Through careful study, answering questions, writing out prayers, and sharing personal stories, readers can create a lasting keepsake for themselves and for their families and friends.

Created by Champ Thornton, best-selling author ofThe Radical Book for Kids, Pass It On is an innovative resource to strengthen families and help them grow in their love for God and each other. This is a perfect gift for an older and wiser friend or relative, so they can share themselves and what they have learned about God with the next generation.

The fresh and careful translation provided comes from Dr. Bruce Waltke, who, now in his eighties, has devoted his life to a humble and Christ-focused study of God s Word, and especially the book of Proverbs. His two-volume work on Proverbs is considered by many as the premier commentary in the English language. As you study the translation of individual chapters, add your own comments in the margins. And feel free to circle, underline, and connect key words or phrases as you see them in the chapter for the day.


Champ Thornton, MDiv, is associate pastor at Ogletown Baptist Church in Delaware. He has pastored in South Carolina and served as director of SOMA, a ministry training school in Columbus, OH. He is also the author of "The Radical Book for Kids: Exploring the Roots and Shoots of Faith," "God's Love: A Bible Storybook," and Bible curriculum for early and upper elementary-aged children. Champ and his wife, Robben, have been married since 1996 and have three children.

This book has so much about it that I love. It goes through the Proverbs and it gives you a journal to really dig deep and record your thoughts.

First of all, this is a beautiful book/journal. The cover is so pretty and soft to the touch. It's an expensive looking journal that is pleasing to the eye and touch. It makes you want to pick it up and use it!

The inside is what is really beautiful as it has Proverbs written out for each day and then in-depth areas for journaling and prayer. What I like, is that there is a guided tour through each chapter and this really helps you to pull out of the Proverb what we need to know. It gives us guidance to really look deeply into those areas.

After you've read the Proverb, you then have the Identifying the Verse, Going Deeper, Connecting the Gospel, Personalizing Prayer, and finally Sharing Your Story. This gives you a way to really connect to the Word of God in a very personal way that helps you to remember.

This would be a great addition to your family devotions or homeschooling. This journal is intended for families to share with youth, however, I could definitely see using this in a youth group setting, as well. I have to say I really loved it for myself!

I highly recommend this book! I would have loved using this when I was homeschooling my children but am using for myself now during my quiet time. I just love it and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
