Bible ReviewerFloridaAge: Over 65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Loving lettersJanuary 6, 2017Bible ReviewerFloridaAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5More than a Bible storybook, the New International Readers Version (NIrV) makes an ideal beginners Bible for children. With the addition of loving, child-friendly notes written by Glenys Nellist, the NIrV Love Letters from God: Holy Bible from Zondervan shows young readers that Gods Word is very personal and very much meant for them.
Having previously read and appreciated Glenys work, I requested a complimentary copy of the Holy Bible: Love Letters from God from BookLook Bloggers, who kindly sent me a free copy to review.
Treenz5 Stars Out Of 5Really nice bibleDecember 2, 2016TreenzQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I am a fan of Glenys's Love Letter books and have reviewed them in previous posts, so was excited to see she has put out a Love Letter Bible for children too. With the same illustrative style, what they have done with this Bible is throughout you will find pages which are titled 'Your Love Letter From God' and it starts with 'Dear' and they write their name in to personalize it. Then it has a short life application message there. Then there is a section titled 'Write Back' with some prompts according to what the thought is and lines for the child to write on. It also has 'God's wonderful Words to You' with a scripture that could easily be a memory verse.
In James it has the ABC's of Christianity which lead in the steps of salvation (Admit, Believe, Confess) along with an invitation from Jesus to join His team. The Bible ends with a Dictionary, shortcuts to the great Bible stories, Notes pages and a few maps. The font is clear and easy to read - not too small - not too big and enough white space. It has a ribbon
book mark that is attached also.
I think this is a gorgeous Bible and would definitely recommend it.
Please note that I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my review, however all opinions expressed are my own.
beanderson5 Stars Out Of 5Love Letters from GodDecember 1, 2016beandersonQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Who likes getting a letter in the mail? I know for one thing I do if it's a card....not the bills! I also know that as a child and my children now love to receive something in the mail. It's a fun thing to even think about. This Bible is a Bible written for children. These stories come alive as your child reads them or has them read to them. In this Bible, there are personal love letters written from God. There are prompts to help children write their own love letters to God. I love this idea....gets them writing and also learning about a personal relationship with Christ. That's the part of the Bible I like...teaching them how to fall in love with Christ.
My children liked looking through this Bible. One is old enough to read through it. He loved reading the letters. I will tell others about this Bible. It is a great Bible for Children.
I received this Bible for free from booklookbloggers in exchange for an honest review.
Fitzysmom5 Stars Out Of 5Review from Rambles of a SAHMOctober 17, 2016FitzysmomQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5What's better than getting a sweet letter from a beloved family member? Not much if you ask me. It is such a gift that you can savor over and over again. That's exactly what the Bible should be to us, a sweet letter from our Father. Each time you open its covers words of wisdom just pour out begging you to take them to heart and live your life accordingly.
The NIrV Love Letters from God has 80 love letters from God that are designed to point to important attributes of God and get the reader to respond back. We've enjoyed Glenys Nellist's books that have taken this same theme and are thrilled with this brilliant way to get children to not only learn more about what the Bible contains but also to interact with it.
This Bible just begs to be given as a gift to that special child in your life. I know who I have in mind and I intend to systematically go through and write that child's name into each of the 80 blanks so that she will feel that the letters were meant especially for her.
The holidays are fast approaching and I think this would make a wonderful gift for the developing reader on your list. Remember that the NIrV is written at a third grade reading level so it is easily understood and gives confidence to the young reader. By the way if you're looking for something just a little nicer than the hardcover edition there is a darling imitation leather version in the color of magenta!
I received a copy of this Bible to facilitate my review.
Frosty5 Stars Out Of 5Lovely versionSeptember 28, 2016FrostyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The first thing I noticed when I opened the box and pulled out this Bible was the inviting cover. Just seeing the lovely illustrations on the front made me want to open it. Inside I found an explanations of the NIrV version and why the publisher chose to use this edition. There is also a page of contents, a presentation page, and colorful maps. But the real beauty is in the "Your Love Letter from God" pages and the colorful inserts that give the reader explanations of Biblical principles. The letters from God are written by Glenys Nellist, who has written several beautiful books for children. There is also a place for the reader to write a letter back to God and a place in the back for notes. This would be an excellent Bible for a child who has given their life to Jesus or one who wants to learn more. I'd go so far as to say, an adult would enjoy the book as well.
I received this book in exchange for a fair review.
