My son will be 11 next month and he literally rushes home to read his Bible everyday now. We've had it for about a week. He has bought this Bible to school with him and even told me, "Mommy! I told my friends about Jesus! During lunch we were reading different sections of the Bible and I would pause and say, 'Do you know what this means?' And then I'd explain it to them! They even said they're going to tell their parents about it!" I'm so excited about my son's newfound interest in not only reading the Bible but reading PERIOD. Thank you for publishing this Bible. He still has a NKJV for studying but this is purely for pleasure! :)
I am surprised by the many positive reviews! I wonder how many actually read the book. I wasn't able to give the book its deserved rating of zero. While it vaguely follows the bible it very frequently embellishes the story being told. It gets things out of order and makes up facts. I am very happy that I read this book so that we did not erroneously buy it for our children's Sunday school class. It was so highly praised that I bought two copies, one for me and one for my niece. Now I have to try to explain to a three year old why we are taking this work of fiction away from her.
I was excited to see this kind of bible was even available. Then after giving it to my 6year old son I was even more excited. We have a routine of reading a book, a bible story and then devotions before bed. He just wants to read the bible and not a book. I love it!
