Gatekeeper5 Stars Out Of 5The 3rd Grade at HCA will enjoy their new biblesDecember 17, 2018GatekeeperQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5We are class parents for a 3rd Grade class at Hebron Christian Academy in Dacula, GA. We struggled to find a meaningful Christmas Present for the children in our class. Our new Lead Pastor introduced us to the ERV bible and told us it is used in many mission settings where people either don't speak English very well or when working with young children. This bible is a great fit for our students because it is written at the 3rd grade level. Our students will be able to pick it up and read a passage and understand what is being said without having to have it explained to them. It will make teaching the scripture easier for the staff and will encourage the students to read more on their own, expanding their knowledge of Christianity. I highly recommend this bible for the youth in your family and community. The price for a case of 20 bibles is very reasonable and the children were excited to receive them.
Justin M.Age: 35-445 Stars Out Of 5Highly RecommendedDecember 19, 2016Justin M.Age: 35-44Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5the ERV Large Print Bible is a clear, simple, straightforward, basic text Bible for a very good price. the ERV is not a well known or popular translation and that's too bad, because this is a real jewel; a hidden treasure. it is not a literal word for word translation and doesn't read like your NIV, ESV, NKJV , etc., but that's where the strength of the ERV shines through. it uses shorter sentence length than some other translations do that takes a little time to get used to. but the verses flow smoothly, and reading the ERV is a pure joy. you can just simply relax when you are reading. it truly is easy to read and easy to understand. it can be read and understood by most children over 12, but this is not a kids' Bible only. far from it! this is just as much an adults' Bible that can studied, appreciated, and enjoyed every day.
it has bright white paper and with the large print it can be read for hours without any effort or eyestrain. the ink used for the large print is a dark black. the footnotes in the ERV are the very best that I have ever found in any translation. they are fantastic. it has a helpful introduction and a very useful word list/dictionary that will be referred to often. a thoughtful addition is a lot of blank pages in the back for notes. a few simple and basic maps are okay. the construction is pretty good for the price and the overall quality is outstanding. this is not a red letter edition if that is important to you-- for me it's not.
the one negative remark that I can make about this Bible is that the paper used for the pages is very thin. you can see the print show through a bit from the other side. as the paper is so thin it can wrinkle and fold easily if you are not careful.
I am very impressed with mine, it's a great value, and I highly recommend it. if you are looking for a clear and simple text Bible that is easy to read and easy to understand, this is it! if you are considering buying one, don't hesitate. you'll be glad you did--I was.
