Pass It On: A Proverbs Journal for the Next Generation by Champ Thornton is a book that combines the styles of a commentary and Bible study to create a journal that is unique and purposeful. When I first received the book, I figured it was just another journaling type product amongst the many that are popular right now. I was pleasantly surprised, however, to learn that the heart behind this journal is to do what the title says, and pass it on to someone younger spiritually as a means for imparting the wisdom you gain while filling its pages. The old adage, “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover” is hard for me to follow as I truly appreciate aesthetics. Pass It On is as aesthetically pleasing as it is rich in content.
The first few pages of the book are dedicated to providing readers with a brief overview of Proverbs. After the overview, there are 31 entries that begin with a chapter of Proverbs. At the conclusion of each chapter, there are questions with space for readers to write in answers. The questions truly get to the heart, drawing on the text of each proverb as well as the reader’s personal experience. One of the most important components of this book is a section at the conclusion of each chapter titled, Connecting the Gospel. This section is so important and helpful in creating an understanding of the role Proverbs has within the whole of Scripture and how it points to Jesus. I’m truly grateful for the faithfulness of Champ Thornton and the legacy he is leaving through Pass It On and I’m excited to see the impact it has for those who complete it.
I give Pass It On my highest recommendation and look forward to reading more from Champ in the future.
Pass It On is available now at all major booksellers.
