Which Bible translation appears in DiscipleLand resources?

New International Version, English Standard Version, New Living Translation, New American Standard, King James Version, and New King James Version
What is DiscipleLand’s Bible translation policy?
Many good English Bible translations are presently available. The variety of translations magnify the richness of God’s Word and help Christians grow in biblical knowledge, Christlike character, and godly conduct.
Since 1935, Through the Bible Publishers has enjoyed a reputation for producing solid, Bible curriculum. In 1999, a new leadership team introduced DiscipleLand, a children’s discipleship system that offers five Bible curriculum choices: Preschool, Kindergarten, Core Bible, DiscipleTown, and Adventure.

DiscipleLand is a non-denominational Bible curriculum. For more information, please read our Belief Statement.

Named in honor of the late Dr. Harlan Roper, Roper Press was a previous name of this publishing company. We still publish his classic adult Bible studies.
Is DiscipleLand affiliated with Walk Through The Bible or Thru the Bible?
Although we share similar names with these fine companies, we are not linked to either of them in any way.
Occasionally web site visitors experience a problem while attempting to register for sample lessons. This can be caused by any number of factors and we apologize for this inconvenience. We will mail you a DiscipleLand Resource Guide, our full-color catalog, which contains sample lessons.
I had problems downloading your Sample Lessons.
DiscipleLand resources contain rich, full-color graphics. Because of this, downloadable DiscipleLand sample lessons are fairly large files. Depending upon computer configuration, some uses may experience problems opening these files. We recommend that you install the latest free version on Adobe Reader, available here.

DiscipleLand will not sell or make any of your personal information (including email addresses) available to other organizations or people.
What web security does DiscipleLand use?

Since its release in 1999, DiscipleLand has grown into a family of resources that offers five Bible curriculum choices: DiscipleLand Preschool (ages 2-5) launched children to begin walking with God. Kindergarten (ages 5-6) inspires kids to follow amazing Bible heroes. DiscipleLand Core Bible (grades 1-6) challenges children to become victorious disciples. DiscipleTown (grades 1-6) equips kids with essential discipleship skills. DiscipleLand Adventure (grades 1-6) motivates kids to pursue their discipleship journey. For more specific information regarding each curriculum line’s Scope and Sequence, use the tabs above.
What does it mean that DiscipleLand resources are "undated"?
"Undated" resources are available throughout the year. They can be used at any time, not just on a suggested "date" printed on the workbooks. This means you can begin DiscipleLand any time you want, based on your own calendar and needs. Of course, DiscipleLand does harmonize with the traditional Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer quarter system, too.
Are music CDs or DVDs available with DiscipleLand resources?
No recorded music or video is presently available. When music is referenced in the teacher guides, we encourage you to use versions convenient to you.
What do you mean by Quarters and Levels?
A DiscipleLand quarter is 13 lessons. DiscipleLand Core Bible curriculum features six levels that roughly correspond to grades 1-6 in school. A "level" is one year of curriculum.
Where can I get the Hidden People Cards mentioned in the Core Bible Teacher Guides?
In addition to English, what languages are DiscipleLand resources available?
DiscipleLand resources are not currently available in other languages.
I’ve heard that DiscipleLand is a missions-oriented curriculum. How so?
Jesus told His followers to "make disciples of all nations." Each DiscipleLand product line features world missions in a prominent way. Preschool Bible lessons include many stories about God’s work around the world. Core Bible levels offer WorldWatch sections that highlight different missionaries, "unreached" people groups, and missions education topics. Adventure units take kids on special journeys to different places across the globe.
Why are DiscipleLand’s Christmas and Easter lessons sold separately?
Because DiscipleLand curriculum is "undated," Christmas and Easter lessons are not included in the regular teacher guides. Seasonal lessons are sold in packs that supply 12 children and 1 teacher.
Are DiscipleLand resources available for teens and/or adults?
We have no junior high or senior high resources at this time.

How do I know if my DiscipleLand resources are the newest/most current version?
The back of each DiscipleLand book indicates when it was printed.
We are using Core Bible Level [X]. I am looking for the second year of material for that year.
Each DiscipleLand Level is age-specific—only one year of curriculum. If your class combines children of different ages, purchase the next level up or down for the second year. Alternate between these two levels during successive years.
How are puppets used?
DiscipleLand Preschool, Kindergarten, and Core Bible (Levels 1-2) features a puppet script for every lesson. Teacher Guides include contemporary Dee-Cy-Paul stories that are also written as puppet scripts. Use the puppets with these scripts for the DiscipleTime story in each lesson.
Do you have a book of puppet scripts? Where are the puppet scripts?
Each DiscipleLand Preschool Teacher Guide includes 12 puppet scripts—one script for every lesson. More than 200 scripts are available through 20 Teacher Guides! We do not have a collected book of puppet scripts.
Disciple Guides are student workbooks for children.
What does it mean that Disciple Guides come "nested"?
Disciple Guides are bound together as individual 4-page worksheets. Simply remove the center staple and you will have one worksheet per lesson per child. NOTE: Adventure Disciple Guides are NOT nested and are sold as full books.
My class combines kids of various ages. Which DiscipleLand resources should I use?
For classes that have children of more than two different grade levels, we suggest using the DiscipleTown or DiscipleLand Adventure curriculum.
We have readers and non-readers in the same class. How do we use DiscipleLand?
DiscipleLand Preschool and Kindergarten are designed for pre-readers or non-readers. DiscipleLand Core Bible, DiscipleTown, and Adventure curriculum is for readers. Teachers can adapt Kindergarten and Core Bible (Level 1 only) for children with differing reading abilities.
Does DiscipleLand offer a "Wednesday night" curriculum?
Many churches have found that DiscipleTown or DiscipleLand Adventure work well for midweek programs.
Is it possible to use the Teacher Guide without using the Disciple Guides?
This is possible, but not recommended. Student workbooks encourage children to use their Bibles and add an exciting dimension to each lesson. Teachers find that they work much harder when their children do not have workbooks.
Does DiscipleLand offer a Vacation Bible School (VBS) curriculum?
No, we do not offer VBS not at this time. Some churches have adapted our DiscipleTown and DiscipleLand Adventure curriculum into their own VBS programs.
I’d like to make copies of DiscipleLand resources. Can I do that?
DiscipleLand Disciple Guides are not reproducible. Teacher Guides allow users to reproduce some pages as handouts to children (look for "permission to copy" note at the bottom of these pages). Otherwise, it is illegal to photocopy DiscipleLand curriculum.
