i absolutely love this Bible with all of the references to Jesus notated; i write and teach Bible studies and this Bible helps me do both better then ever. i also like the devotions and other features and have recommended this Bible to youngsters who are at the stage of having to defend their faith for the first time.
The cover is very interesting. This is a children's Bible from Zondervan. It maybe a kids Bible but I really liked it to use along with my Bible. (just a kid at Heart). In the front it has the Simplified family tree of Jesus, I just loved reading this part. Very interesting to me and I think that children need to be able to get to this quickly and know Jesus family and to learn it (wish I had this in my bible when I was younger). I never really heard of Jesus family in my Church growing up did you?
You'll discover Jesus in every book of the Bible. There's prayers on the bottom of the pages for example: Jesus Forever and it tells of Jesus from beginning to end--then a Prayer.
Like Jesus to the Rescue--Amen we know he's always with us no matter if we are in our darkest hour or if we are happy, he NEVER leaves us. Let us not leave and forget him when things goes our way and only call on him in the darkest hours of our life.
Psalm 23 I remembered parts of it as a child-- but decided that everyday from now on it will be what I say and learn and keep close at heart. Psalm 23 in this Bible is simplified for a child but since I read it as a child from my Fathers old Bible I think for myself I like the words out of my Father's Bible. Children will probably understand the Jesus Bible words better.
This Bible has eleven great features added in it. There are beautiful maps in the back of this Bible. It really has extra help and I like it for myself to read with my own Bible. This is still a very good Bible for a child.
I recommend it highly for your child.
I received this beautiful Bible from booklook free for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one. The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own and no one else's.
Such a great idea for kids and adults! I thought the description given with the book below would be a great idea for my son:
The Jesus Bible, NIV
Discover Jesus In Every Book of the Bible by Zondervan
Jesus isn't just found in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. His presence can be felt throughout the whole Bible, even in Genesis. The Jesus Bible contains the complete New International Version (NIV) with daily study helps that point to Jesus and show how he fulfilled the prophecies for the Messiah found in the Old Testament. A perfect way to see the overarching narrative of the Bible, The Jesus Bible includes these features:
â€¢ Presentation page for personalization and gift giving
â€¢ Book introductions explain where Jesus appears in each book of the Bible
â€¢ 365 devotions revolve around the "sightings" of Jesus in the Old Testament and his life and teachings in the New Testament
â€¢ Application notes to help apply Jesus' teachings to real life today
â€¢ Hundreds of clues highlight the promises/prophesies made about Jesus in the Old Testament and the fulfillments in the New Testament
â€¢ Index of the Old Testament prophecies fulfilled in Christ
â€¢ List of Jesus' miracles and parables
â€¢ Timeline of Jesus' life
â€¢ Lineage of Jesus
â€¢ Concordance to help find key topics, people, and events in the Bible
â€¢ Words of Christ in red
I was very pleasantly surprised by what I found when I got this hard back Bible. It will be a great Bible for years to come with him. I love the way everything is laid out and the way it gives daily stories to relate to things that happened in the Bible and with things that Jesus said. I would highly recommend this Bible if you are looking for a good one for your child. Thank you to the booksneeze blogging program for this copy of The Jesus Bible in return for my honest review.
The Jesus Bible, published by Zonderkidz, is written to help children discover Jesus in every book of the Bible. It is presented in the New International Version, making it easy to understand. In each book, the introduction page includes "Where is Jesus in this book?" as well as the author, key people, when, where, and some of the stories found in the book.
This Bible also includes several study aids, such as a year's supply of daily devotions written to be used in any order and checked off in the index at the back of the book and a "Live Like Jesus" section to help one apply the lesson to his own life. The "Hints of the Savior" highlight promises and prophecies made about Jesus in the Old Testament, while "Jesus Revealed" highlights their fulfillment in the New Testament. In addition to all of this, the concordance and full color maps in the back provide a wonderful resource to enhance one's study.
I was impressed by this Bible. While it is published for children, I felt that it would be a great resource for any adult as well. It would be especially helpful for new Christians, as it highlights some basic stories and information. I would definitely recommend this Bible.
I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
I was so excited to order this book because I am going into teaching hopefully in a Christian school. This Bible has some incredible features such as character profiles, stories, and devotions for kids. I think this is a must have for children who are at the age that they can read and are starting to make their faith their own.
This would be a great resource to have in Christian schools as well as in Churches so that children would see that churches and schools cater to them and don't just have the standard Black cover Bibles available. I find that if the Bibles are geared towards children they are more likely to read them and become way more interested in them instead of the plain old text. This Bible has so many features that would get students and children involved and excited about reading the Bible. Definitely a must have!
