I know that this is a kid's Bible, but seriously, I think I'm keeping it for me. I have reviewed several children's Bibles over the years and most of them have been some form of a current fad or really geared towards younger readers with a very small age group that it will work for. Meaning that kids will easily outgrow them. This particular Bible I think can last a bit longer than the average kid's Bible because the thing that makes it different is the thing that also bridges the gap.
It's the standard NIV version of the Bible with various study notes throughout. The colors and images are visually appealing, but beyond that the images also make some of the things happening in scripture much easier to understand. For instance, this passage from Second Kings does a great job of explaining the difference between how the divided kingdoms played out for the people.
If you have a young person or if you yourself are a visual learner, this Bible is worth picking up and adding to your personal study time. I guess that's what I really like about it is that at its heart, it is a study Bible to help give kids and adults a greater understanding of scripture. But it doesn't over explain what's happening, just enough to give clarity and then allow you to come to the lessons conclusion on your own. Visually appealing, theologically sound, and perfect for the kids in your life.
A copy of this Bible was given to me through Handlebar Publishing for the purpose of review. I'm never required to give positive reviews but I'm always happy when I can.
