Are you a book learner? Do you know a book learner? Are your children, spouse, or class members book learners? If so, here are some amazing resources you can use today to reach the book learners in your life.

Book Learners: Characteristics and Attributes

Before sharing all the resources, let’s review a few characteristics and attributes of our Book Learners.

Everyone needs to have some book learning in them–because that is how we acquire information–through reading and/or listening. Traditional school settings are geared specifically to book learners.

Book learners love to read and listen to scriptures. They enjoy staying words and word origins. They like to define words and compare different translations of the New Testament. People who are book learners like to summarize, outline, and retell the stories they read in the scriptures.
There are a few great ways to study and learn from the New Testament as a book learner. You can read the words in the scriptures or you can listen to the scriptures on the Gospel Library App. Book learners can read the words silently or out loud to themselves.  Book learners want to learn more from commentary books that explain and expound upon the scriptures.

New Testament Study Resources for Book Learners

Here are several resource available that will be great for Book Learners. Keep in mind that most resources incorporate more than one learning style. This will be helpful to know since most families and classes include many different types of learners. Each resource will include a section of all the learning styles that are easily present in each resource.
