5 Stars Out Of 5
Great for coaches and athletes
September 21, 2013
This is a straight forward NIV bible with a "football" cover. This is a thin-line Bible (which means small font) but the spine is loose so that the bible lays flat wherever you open it. The words of Jesus are in red and you get a ribbon bookmark.
Other than that - there are no bells and whistles with this Bible. No commentary, or special kids things - no "notes" that relates to sports or athletes - it's just a standard NIV bible.
This Bible also comes in Basketball and Soccer print - depending on your favorite sport. These would be great gifts for coaches or your young athlete.
Please note that all NIV translations printed after 2011 are slightly different in language and presentation than the NIVs released prior. Zondervan continues to work with pastors and Bible scholars, and include the latest discoveries about biblical languages and the biblical world to ensure that the latest NIV translation of the Bible remains faithful to God's test.
Personally I think that anything you can do to generate an interest in reading the bible in a young person is a great thing! I'm giving this one to a coach I know.
Thank you to Zonervan and ZonderKIDZ for this review copy for a fair and honest review.
