Girls Slimline Bible NLT, published by Tyndale
Girls Slimline Bible NLT, published by Tyndale is the perfect sized bible to take with you or to read while at home. This slim sized bible features an attractive retro styled hard cover with a bold contrast of silver trim stitch contrasting with a bold, bright fur textured cover print. While this book is marketed for teen-aged or tween girls. Other than the beautifully styled cover, nothing in the interior is specific to young girls. It would be a stretch, but this bible has appeal even for use by a middle aged adult - it is a bit bright and bold for anything other than my own personal use. Even so, I found this quality made, sturdy and retro design appealing. This design has universal appeal for a wide contemporary youthful audience with its modern minimalist design. The text is a standard sized, and the ultra thin pages keep this bible slim and light. This plain text bible does not feature any extra articles or devotionals- which is fine if you are looking for a light weight bible. I do not feel that young readers will be able to absorb the small font and may be overwhelmed by this bible. Therefore I feel it is more appropriate for teens and older. The New Living Translation is a great translation- true and faithful as well as easy to understand. For those who read their bibles a lot- this will be an advantage as it is easy to hold for extended periods of time. As a blogger I received a copy of this bible for the purpose of writing this review.
