I gave one to my 9 year old grandson, and it is the perfect Bible for him. He loves the colorful pages and easy to read format; but it is also mature enough to grow into his teen age years. And the extra comments, pictures, etc. will help him grown in his faith and knowledge. I purchased three more for our other grandchildren when they get just a little bit older.
I use this bible in my daily worship. I love it. I'm a glasses-wearer so the font for me is nice and I love the diagrams. Some of the diagrams help summarize difficult passages nicely. Also, there are explanations of why we pray and what the church is in the back of the bible. I'm a college student so -- to me-- this bible reminds me of a textbook and I reaallly love it!
I am a visual learner so hoped for something to help me understand the Bible better to make it a little easier. This version seems to have a good start on that but had hoped for more. A normal standard Bible like say a NIV Study Bible has just as much if not more visuals. Wish I had bought the parallel Bible instead. Will make a good gift to someone.
