My 10 year old loves this Bible. She has the Children's Zondervan Bible which she uses in the Christian School she attends, but has to leave that one at school, so I bought her this one for home and Church. She wanted to take it to school to use, but the school requires the Zondervan one.
I purchased several of these for Christmas presents for children. They are nicely laid out. A full text Bible, but also there are pages where there is an illustrated Bible story from the passage that a younger child can relate to. The general layout of the Bible pages worked very well with applying tabs to the pages.
Although this book was intended for youth, I bought it for an adult co-worker who found traditional bibles to be "boring". He told me he wish bibles had illustrations with a "memo" section and was easy to read. I suprised him with this and the presentation of the cover alone made him happy. Watching him skim through the pages in exitement touches my heart. Another co-worker noticed his exitement and asked me to order one for her as well! Now they both reading the word.
I guess I would like a bible that is not full of white people. My ministry has been blessed with a very mixed set f people, many Sudanese. The pictures given as samples show a bunch of white faces. I do not want to be hipper critical but God made many skin tones and eve Jesus us a pasty white guy as I am since I live in Alaska. The over all bible looks great but this ruins it for me. Hope those who have it love it.
