Beware of inappropriate material in this CHILDREN's Bible
October 22, 2014
Genesis 4:1 in the ICB Bible states "Adam had sexual relations with his wife". NKJV... "Adams knew his wife"
WHY must a children's bible go "there"? I do not personally want my 7 year old reading his bible asking what that ^^ means!!! Should have stuck with "knew" or "lay". The only appropriate versions I have found are ESV or KJV or NKJV. The "Hands On" bible says the same as the ICB. Another version says "Adams made love to his wife". Seriously? These are CHILDREN reading the Bibles. NKJV Adventure bible is awesome!
I purchased this bible for my grandson that recently accepted Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as his savior. The bible was nice but is was far smaller than expected. I also purchased a bible cover to place it and it was way to large for the bible. I will continue to shop for items but was not pleased with my last purchase.
The cover of this bible is adorable and fairly well made HOWEVER...I strongly caution anyone with young children to read the language used in sections such as Genesis 19 and Romans 1:26. I was shocked at the word choice for a third grade level bible. I bought one for my 6 year old son and I am returning them due to the overly explicit nature of the phrasing. If you are particular about the way homosexuality, incest and other sexual topics are described to your child this bible may not be for you. We are going with the much milder language of the ESV children's bibles. It is sad to see society's desire to "educate" our kids about sex and desensitize them to sexual verb-age bleed over into children's BIBLEs!
