Commentary feels legalistic
May 11, 2015
I purchased this for my teenage niece, but won't be giving it to her. The commentary/devotional sections come across as very legalistic in my view. Granted, I don't interact with a ton of teenagers so maybe this is the kind of black/white, no-nonsense, straight up get-right-or-get-left wording that they "need"? I am just not comfortable with it. Then the prayers that are listed throughout this Bible are in a completely different writing style, which no teenager would find as a natural way to talk to God. For her first Bible, I feel like this would scare her off. Unfortunately I ordered it personalized so it's non-returnable. I do wish there was a way to preview a few of the inside pages before ordering.
These are beautiful Bibles with excellent font size and easy to turn pages. The devotionals within are just the right frequency. In other words, they do not overpower the scripture.
We have only had them a month, but at this point we are well pleased. I will say that the personalization on the boy Bible is a little bit harder to read than on the girl Bible, but it is still lovely.
We purchased four of them (two boy and two girl) for our four oldest kids. They were all very touched to see their names on them.
