The Jesus Bible, NIV is a children’s Bible that focuses on how Jesus is interwoven throughout scripture. Helpful features include:
- A timeline of Jesus’ life
- A simplified Family Tree of Jesus
- Devotions for every day of the year
- Biblical book introductions that answer the question of, “Where is Jesus in this book?”
The Jesus Bible, NIV is presented in an easy to use format. As my son grows older, I can see myself working through this Bible with him. Parents should keep in mind that The Jesus Bible, NIV is geared towards kids ages 9-12.
I also like how the daily devotionals are short and simple to read. They include an opening theme verse, thought for the day, and a closing prayer. The devotionals serve as a great introductory tool to get children into a daily habit of reading scripture.
I have two complaints against The Jesus Bible, NIV: 1) The hardbound version that I was given to review is heavy. I realize that this does increase the life span of the Bible due to durability. But yet I wonder if a child would indeed carry a Bible that is so heavy. 2) I dislike the pink font that is used throughout the Bible. I think a more gender neutral color could have been chosen.
If you are looking for a children’s Bible that points towards Christ, look no further than The Jesus Bible, NIV.
I was given a copy of this book by BookLook Bloggers. All opinions are my own. I was not required to write a positive review.
