Finally there is a children's bible that actually targets its intended readers with age appropriate text as well as with colorful graphics and articles. The Jesus Bible, NIV edition: Discover Jesus in Every Book of the Bible is produced for elementary kids ages 9-12. Unlike many kids' bibles, this bible is actually one that kids will be able to read. The inviting brown font of the faithful yet easy to understand NIV text will encourage young bible readers to actually read this bible. I can not say how frequently I have seen children's bibles with tiny 6-7 point font in a hard to read NKJV or KJV! While some readers may argue that the NIV is not as easy to read as the NLT or other more modern or paraphrased versions- of all the literal translations on the market, the NIV is probably the most accessible to younger readers. This bible is not one that kids will quickly outgrow. Even beyond the pre-teen years, I feel that even teens will appreciate this easy to read, inviting bible.
The bold two-tone red and brown graphics make this bible inviting to pick up and read. Highlighted verses and a magazine styled interior will draw the readers attention to the bible text as well as highlighted side bars of useful information to apply. Full color glossy insert pages add additional bible resources. There is a concordance and maps- resources often overlooked in many kids bibles. This is a good choice for first time bible readers and it is a good bible that young readers will not quickly outgrow.
This bible is a beautifully bound hardcover. This high quality bible will easily stand up to years of use.
