Julia EWIAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5I highly recommend this bible for young readers and for children's ministry.August 14, 2017Julia EWIAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5This is a well-written, attractive bible for young readers. The translation is simple, but clear. I feel that none of the meaning is lost. It is based on the NIV, but doesn't seem to have any of the negative things from the newer translations. Please note, I must correct an earlier reviewer. The NIV is not considered a literal translation. It is considered a "mediating" translation, (see https://www.christianbook.com/page/bibles/about-bibles/about-translations) The 1984 and before editions are still excellent translations, just not literal. Even though our church prefers a more literal translation of the bible, such as the ESV, I like using this version with younger children, up to age 8. I love to tell the creation story using the NIrV.
Here is Genesis 1: 6-8, day 2: " 6 God said, "Let there be a huge space between the waters. Let it separate water from water." 7 And that's exactly what happened. God made the huge space between the waters. He separated the water under the space from the water above it. 8 God called the huge space "sky."There was evening, and there was morning. It was day two."
What could be plainer? God said (spoke) and it happened. There was evening and morning (24 hours) and it was a day. Exactly the important ideas I want the children to understand.
A few more examples:
23 Everyone has sinned. No one measures up to God's glory.
21" Everyone who calls
on the name of the Lord will be saved."
The translation is accurate enough to lead a young child to salvation; I have done so using the NIrV.
It is a joy to see young 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders reading from God's word without much hesitation and struggling. This is possible with NIrV. I check CBD regularly to find slightly imperfect and other good deals on this bible so that I will have enough to share.
The features are excellent also. I won't go into all of them. I like the Italian Duo-Tone cover. It has a very nice feel to it. It may be better than leather. This version is designed to lay flat when opened, which is very helpful.
Do not hesitate to buy this bible.
gretch5 Stars Out Of 5love it!May 30, 2017gretchQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I love this translation for kids. There is never any confusion as to what the writer is trying to say. My 7 & 10 year old love it. This bible is very colorful & exciting looking for kids. I feel it will be appropriate for my 10 yr old to use as her study bible for the next few years. We purchased the solid color outside so they wouldn't out grow them too fast. The quality of this bible is wonderful. I would recommend it to everyone with a child that can read.
