About these Books

Exodus PhotoTitle: Journible: The 17:18 Series
Author: Robert Wynalda (a local businessman) and Dr. Joel R. Beeke (President of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary)
Genre: Non-fiction, Bible study tool
Release Date: Series released in 2009
Why the 17:18 series?
In Deuteronomy 17, Moses is leaving final instructions concerning the future of Israel. As a prophet of God, Moses foretells of when Israel will place a king over the nation (v. 14). In verse 18, the king is commanded to not simply acquire a copy of the law (the entire book of Deuteronomy) from the scroll publishing house, but to hand write his own copy of the law. Thirty-four hundred years later, educators are discovering that students that physically write out their notes by hand have a much greater retention rate than simply hearing or visually reading the information. Apparently, God knew this to be true of the kings of Israel also. From such understanding came the conception of this series of books.

How to Use These Books
Each book is organized so that you can write out your very own copy of Scripture. You will be writing the Bible text only on the right hand page of the book. This should make for easier writing and also allows ample space on the left page to write your own notes and comments. From time to time a question or word will be lightly printed on the left page; these questions are to aid in further study, but should not interfere with your own notes and comments.

The 17:18 Series


I have always liked bible studies because it helps me dig deeper in the word. I also have many journals that I write scriptures and thoughts in. When I saw this wonderful book, I knew I was going to enjoy it. Two of my favorite ways to study the Word in one place. I received the Journible of the book of John. I loved how you copy the scriptures down on one side and the other side there are questions to take you deeper in the word. I liked that I could take my time and write as many scriptures as I wanted. I would stop on some of them, and reread the scripture again. When writing out a scripture, it helps me to understand it better. The questions are good that are provided and very useful as you go through the book of John. I like how the journal is very durable and can last for a very long time. The pages are thick enough to write on and erase if you need to. I would love to get the whole collection and be able to journey through the bible one book at a time. 

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.

  1. These look really good. My daughter is using one and loves it!

  2. These journals seem like they'd be a wonderful tool to use studying the Scripture. Thanks for being a part of the blog tour.

  3. There weren't many reviewers in this tour who said they would like to continue using these books. It was good to read that is something you think you could stick with for awhile. I think I would be in the same boat.

    Thanks for sharing your insights.
