This project-focused study introduces basic narrative techniques and their examples in Scripture. Students will develop key writing disciplines by crafting a handful of original stories, each of which can present a unique perspective on God’s majesty.
By emphasizing pre-draft planning and iterative editing, In Their Sandals is an approachable, structured introduction to creative writing. This eight-lesson book can supplement Bible, English, or literature courses. Recommended for students with a seventh-grade reading level or above.
