As a homeschool mom, I've looked at a lot of children's Bibles, and this is my favorite for our kids and teens. It contains a lot of devotions and they all point to Jesus and the truth of Scripture. So many Bibles on the market today focus much of the devotional content on what publishers think kids are struggling with (popularity, crushes, fashion, etc.) How refreshing to have a Bible that keeps my kids' hearts meditating on God's Word instead of turning them toward issues they don't even have yet!
Just started teaching again and have found almost everything I need on this site. I received 4 bibles that where damaged and thought I would call and just ask what to do. She apologized, explained how to return, no questions asked. Thank You!
i absolutely love this Bible with all of the references to Jesus notated; i write and teach Bible studies and this Bible helps me do both better then ever. i also like the devotions and other features and have recommended this Bible to youngsters who are at the stage of having to defend their faith for the first time.
The cover is very interesting. This is a children's Bible from Zondervan. It maybe a kids Bible but I really liked it to use along with my Bible. (just a kid at Heart). In the front it has the Simplified family tree of Jesus, I just loved reading this part. Very interesting to me and I think that children need to be able to get to this quickly and know Jesus family and to learn it (wish I had this in my bible when I was younger). I never really heard of Jesus family in my Church growing up did you?
You'll discover Jesus in every book of the Bible. There's prayers on the bottom of the pages for example: Jesus Forever and it tells of Jesus from beginning to end--then a Prayer.
Like Jesus to the Rescue--Amen we know he's always with us no matter if we are in our darkest hour or if we are happy, he NEVER leaves us. Let us not leave and forget him when things goes our way and only call on him in the darkest hours of our life.
Psalm 23 I remembered parts of it as a child-- but decided that everyday from now on it will be what I say and learn and keep close at heart. Psalm 23 in this Bible is simplified for a child but since I read it as a child from my Fathers old Bible I think for myself I like the words out of my Father's Bible. Children will probably understand the Jesus Bible words better.
This Bible has eleven great features added in it. There are beautiful maps in the back of this Bible. It really has extra help and I like it for myself to read with my own Bible. This is still a very good Bible for a child.
I recommend it highly for your child.
I received this beautiful Bible from booklook free for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one. The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own and no one else's.
Such a great idea for kids and adults! I thought the description given with the book below would be a great idea for my son:
The Jesus Bible, NIV

Jesus isn't just found in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. His presence can be felt throughout the whole Bible, even in Genesis.

I was very pleasantly surprised by what I found when I got this hard back Bible. It will be a great Bible for years to come with him. I love the way everything is laid out and the way it gives daily stories to relate to things that happened in the Bible and with things that Jesus said. I would highly recommend this Bible if you are looking for a good one for your child. Thank you to the booksneeze blogging program for this copy of The Jesus Bible in return for my honest review.
