Bible Study Notes
Six volume set
Author : Anita S. Dole
Format : Paperback
Release date : 2012
The series surveys books of the Bible from a Swedenborgian perspective. Perfect for group, family, or individual study, this six-volume study aid offers penetrating and comprehensive insights into the spiritual meaning to be found within the literal text of Biblical stories.
Originally written for Sunday school teachers, the book is divided into five age groups: beginner (ages 6-8), junior (ages 9-11), intermediate (ages 12-14), senior (ages 15-17) and adult. Each lesson focuses on imparting knowledge of the literal sense of the Bible and its spiritual sense.
The lessons are geared toward the life experience and level of understanding of that particular age group, and Dole gives practical advice in each lesson for helping children and adults relate to the Bible. Each lesson contains an overview of the points to be discussed, notes for parents and teachers, text with discussion questions for each age group, related readings from Swedenborg, and questions that review and test students' understanding.
The Series covers the following books of the Bible.
Vol. 1: Genesis
Vol. 2: Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, oshua, Judges
Vol. 3: 1 Samuel, 2 Samuel, 1 Kings, 2 Kings, Psalms
Vol. 4: Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Jowl, Amos, Jonah, Micah, Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi, Matthew

This classic study tool is perfect for study groups and Sunday school as well as for individuals who want to develop a deeper understanding of the meaning of the Bible.
Anita S. Dole (1889-1973) graduated from the University of Chicago. She was first exposed to Swedenborg while teaching at Urbana College in Urbana, Ohio, and joined the church in 1917. In 1919 she married the Reverend Louis A. Dole, and moved with him to Fryeburg, Maine, where he served as pastor to a New Church congregation. Among a wealth of volunteer positions, she taught Sunday school at the church, developing the course that would be published as Bible Study Notes.
