Clear, Easy to Follow, Interesting

Children will love learning the instruments of the Bible from this book. Clearly laid out. Teachers and parents will enjoy reading and learning with their children.

Kimberley Payne’s latest work, “Musical Instruments in the Bible — Learn About Musical Instruments While Exploring God’s Word,” is a charming and informative read for older children. Great care is taken to include many musical instruments mentioned in the Bible, with backgrounds on their biblical, cultural, and aesthetic relevance. There is an engaging “question period,” so to speak, in each section, which invites young readers both to consider events from the biblical texts, and to apply biblical principles to everyday life. I highly recommend Payne’s volume to children and parents alike. 5 out of 5 stars.
A Good Book for Teaching Children

Along with suggestions for activities, this book would make a delightful addition to any children’s library, Sunday School and homeschooling curriculum. It’s a lovely book for helping children understand the musical instruments mentioned in the Bible and the different reasons for their use. Kimberley gives comprehensive descriptions and scriptural references for each instrument and shows how they were used to express faith.

This is a great resource for Sunday Schools, homeschoolers – children and adults alike. I can tell the author put a lot of work into it the research and you’ll learn things you didn’t know before about the role of music in the Bible.
The book is very informative, and I appreciate the glossaries as well as the pictures and descriptions throughout. My Bible reading will be enhanced with my knowledge of what these instruments are as I will have a more accurate image in my mind!
by Linda Klager
I enjoyed the book tremendously. You did a lot of research for this book. Each instrument was explained by category and with shapes and use of the instruments. It also helped to have illustrations of the instruments included. I liked that you added Bible verses and proper names of those in the Bible who worshiped the Lord.

It is obvious that Kimberley Payne has done extensive research into the topic of music in the Bible. Musical Instruments in the Bible would be a great resource for elementary and middle school music teachers as well as for a homeschool curriculum. Payne describes the different musical instruments found in the Bible and how they were used. She also includes a glossary at the end of the book that gives Scripture references for where the instruments can be found in the Bible. She does include a small illustration of each instrument but the book would be more appealing to children with more illustrations – maybe of people using the instruments.
I appreciated all the “extra” information at the end of the book – glossary of terms, people of the Bible, Scripture references, and projects. This information makes the book even more useful as a reference book.
Musical Instruments in the Bible: Learning About Musical Instruments While Exploring God’s Word could find a place in the reference (nonfiction) section of a K-12 Christian school library. It is appropriate for older elementary and middle school students.
I received a complimentary copy of Musical Instruments in the Bible. This is my honest review.
