2 Stars Out Of 5
Inappropriate content for 8-11 year olds
May 14, 2014
I purchased this Bible for my 9 year old, based on the publisher's recommended age starting at 8. I do see now that in the description it states ages 11 & up, but I missed that when I purchased it. I could name quite a few sections that are inappropriate for my 9 year old, but one in particular is an "I survived" entry on sexual purity. A portion is about a boy's temptation as he spent more & more time with his girlfriend, "struggling with the temptation to have sex", and he invited her over when his parents weren't home & started kissing her, telling her that "couples in the movies...don't wait for marriage to have sex". Ultimately there is a good lesson to be learned in the story, however, it is definitely not appropriate for a girl my daughter's age.
