Finding the best homeschool Bible curriculum for your children can be overwhelming. The Bible itself is an obvious choice, and we have a couple free printable reading plans here, but often parents want something more tailored to their children's ages.
There are so many choices out there, and really, without a solid recommendation from a friend or past experience, you're blindly choosing.
So, grab a cup of your favorite coffee and let's have a chat about some of the best homeschool Bible curriculum choices we've discovered over the years for children, teens, girls and guys.

For Younger Children
The colorful illustrations included with each story are sure to be loved and provide a solid image for your children's minds to establish the reality of the stories.
The timeless and absolutely true stories are written in a lovely manner, and after each story, you'll find helpful questions to spur discussion and to help children commit them to memory.
Meet thirty important people from the Old and New Testaments! Some of them are famous Bible figures like Abraham and Paul, and others are unsung heroes like Amos and Priscilla. The stories will capture kids' hearts and minds, and the “Growing Time” sections will help them apply the lessons of each story.
Discussion points help readers discover the importance of following the positive role models and not following the negative ones.
The Bible gives us many names for God and tells us what they all mean. And when we learn a new name for God, we learn something new about him, too!
This book is for parents and children to read together. Every chapter includes questions for family discussion and an activity.
We have been using these books for years. Each day’s lesson focuses on a key theme from a Bible story. Along with the story are application questions, a memory verse, and an action phrase.
The study only takes a few minutes each day and is a great way to help kids connect with God daily!
Whether you're helping the kids develop content hearts, master obedience, or root out sibling rivalry, Not Consumed has a family Bible study for you.
We've used several studies in the past and are currently working through Fruit of the Tongue. As a large family, we especially appreciate that all of the studies are available in youth and junior versions.
For Pre-teens and Teens
This is a 52-week study focusing on the names and titles of God and of Jesus, and is designed to help readers experience the Lord in fresh and deeper ways.
By studying such rich and varied names as Adonay, El Shadday, Abba, Yeshua, Lamb of God, and Prince of Peace, your children will encounter a God who is holy, powerful, surprising, merciful, and loving.
Each week’s study includes:
- Background information to help readers understand the name
- A key Scripture passage in which the name was first or most significantly revealed
- A series of questions for individual or group study
- A list of Bible passages for further reflection
This character teaching Bible study series is written in a conversational tone, and uses examples that both old and young will identify with. My teenage daughter and I went through this study together. It's absolutely wonderful.
Volume one covers knowing our Omni-God, truthfulness, faithfulness, forgiveness, and patience; and also incorporates these themes with examples from history, hymnology, literature and science.
Each section includes detailed Bible study, personal reflection and has internet links throughout making it great for use either as a 9-week homeschool curriculum, or personal or group Bible study.

Positive Action For Christ makes excellent pre-teen and teen Bible studies. Their Milk, Meat, Bread, Fish series is perfect for middle school Bible.
The four part series covers:
- becoming a Christian, prayer, baptism, and the church
- the inspiration of the Bible, the Trinity, man, Satan, and the Second Coming
- Christ’s virgin birth, death, resurrection, and exaltation
- sin and its penalty, Christ’s death for man’s sin, and trusting Christ as Saviour
Those pre-teen/teen years can be rough. Not just for us as parents, but also for our kids. The hormones start kicking in, impure images bombard their eyes, which lead to impure thoughts . . . if we as their parents and grandparents aren't there to help and guide them, our children will accept the world's standards instead of the Word's standards.
Lest You Fall is all about maintaining a pure heart and thought life by establishing concrete morals.
