Learning the books of the Bible is very important for Bible study. I highly recommend it.
Short story: I remember when I was about 8 years old when our children’s church teachers challenged us to memorize all 66 books of the Bible and those that did, they would win a Bible as a prize. Oh my goodness!
I practiced and practiced, but on the day of the challenge, I was too nervous to stand in front of about a couple of hundred children and recite them, so I didn’t. Plus, I already had a Bible. I regret that because I could’ve given that extra Bible to someone who needed it.
Books of the Bible Memorization Activities
Kids will easily learn with these “Memorize the books of the Bible worksheet sets!” They include games and other hands-on activities, too!
My son, who is five years old, can do now what I was doing at age eight, without even trying or pushing it. How did he memorize the books of the Bible? Simple! We listened to this CD over and over, as well as reading my free printable poster.
I printed it in color and, instead of laminating it, I framed it in an 8x10in frame and hung it right next to his table in our homeschool room.

It is also one of the books used in an excellent Bible study curriculum by Danika Cooley. She is also the author of When Lightning Struck! about the life of Martin Luther. You can see my review post on that excellent book here.
Scripture Memorization Activities
We memorize a full chapter every few months and we memorize one scripture verse per week. I have gotten several free printable card sets from around the net, but these resources below are super cool and worth a look. 🙂

Books of the Bible: Free Printable
Let’s talk about this free printable books of the Bible poster. It looks just like the main picture in this post. It is a shelf with books and on every book, there is a name of a book of the Bible.
They are in order as you would find them in any Bible and I have also placed black and white labels for the categories they fall under (law, history, poetry, prophets, epistles, gospels, etc).
The shelf looks clean and organized. It is easy to read and follow. You can frame it like I did or laminate it. Another option is to print it in color and put it in a sheet protector to go into your child’s Bible studies binder.
Either way, you and your children will enjoy having it at home or at Sunday School. It is just so beautiful that I love displaying it on our wall. I have divided it into the Old and New Testament books.
Then I also divided them into the sections within each Testament. I am excited for you to soon hear your kids go “Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers…” and the rest by heart! All 66 books!
