Fitzysmom4 Stars Out Of 5Review from Rambles of a SAHMApril 25, 2017FitzysmomQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4If you have a curious kiddo the NIV Investigator's Holy Bible would be a nice gift for them. The entire premise of the book is to take a deeper look at what scripture contains. The investigation is done through the eyes of Mateo and Isabella and their dog Clooney and should appeal to the intended audience.
While most of the takeaways and side notes or features are spot on I have to admit that there were some that didn't set right with my viewpoint of scripture. I think this particular Bible would be wonderful as a jumping off tool. Perhaps in a bible study setting or homeschool or christian school where the readers go through books of the Bible and read and discuss them with an adult leader.
With that said I think it is important to remember and emphasize that the notes are from a human perspective but the actual text is inspired by God. Overall I really like this Bible and would recommend it to most. I would just take a look at the notes beforehand and be prepared to offer a more detailed explanation.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
TimIllinoisAge: 45-54Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5Investigator's Holy BibleFebruary 20, 2017TimIllinoisAge: 45-54Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This bible is a really interesting new bible from Zonderkidz. To begin with the casewrapped cover is bright and has great eye appeal. Full colored cover with metallic appearance allows this bible to be quickly picked out as different from other bibles on the shelf. The features contained within are vast and quite helpful.
There are six types of articles included within. There are "The Evidence" which are introductions to each book of the bible. Also included are "Breakthrough" segment which answer questions which kids ask. "The Scene" helps are location descriptors and clarifying information. Also included are segments called "The Witnesses", "Check the Facts", and "Case Closed!".
The study aids included are thoughtfully written using language which is targeted toward young readers. Each of the study aids are placed in sections of scripture which allow for a continuity in reading. Beyond these study aide there are maps and a substantial concordance.
All in all this is one of the best youth study bibles I have seen in a while. I believe it would be a great gift, or addition to any families library.
I received a free copy of this bible from Booklook Bloggers for review purposes. A positive review was not required, and the thoughts included are all my own.

Treenz4 Stars Out Of 5A great Bible with some interesting information for childrenFebruary 16, 2017TreenzQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Well to review this one - starting at first impressions - this Bible has a really great cover design. It has a metallic element to the whole color tinting which looks really effective. It opens up to a 'presented to' page with 'to' 'by' and 'on' lines to be filled in. From there a few pages over is the Table of Contents and then an introduction showing how to use the Bible and what all the sections included are. Following that is a preface and then a cover page introducing the Old Testament.
The first page of Genesis has an illustration and then is titled 'The Evidence'. It discusses who wrote it? How long ago? What's it about and The Best part. Most pages throughout the Bible have illustrated boxes with further information. The illustrated boxes could be any combination of the follows: (Summaries taken from the Bible back cover)
The Evidence: what kind of book it is, who wrote it, what happens and the best part as mentioned above.
Breakthrough: answers questions like 'who were the Philistines?' and 'what is the spirit of God?'
The Scene: highlights geographical information pertinent to the verse
The Witnesses: explains meaning and history behind biblical names
Check the Facts: Quizzes on what they have learned
Case Closed: relates events of that book to children as individuals.
The two characters leading the investigation are a boy and a girl, so both boys and girls can engage in this. The age range is 6-10 - though I would say it is for closer to 9 and 10 to get the best out of this.
This is a great Bible! I would definitely recommend it. It has a lot of interest factors to help make it relatable for children - which is important. I have included quite a few photos to give you an idea more of it below.
Please note that I was sent a copy of this book for purposes of review, however this review is entirely my own.
Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5NIV Investigator's Holy BibleFebruary 15, 2017Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4First, the disclaimer. "I was provided a free copy of this book. All opinions are my own." That done, The NIV THE INVESTIGATOR'S HOLY BIBLE is a colorful hard cover Bible (this one is not currently available in eBook) for children. The design is sure to appeal to either boys or girls.
My daughter didn't like that it didn't have a ribbon (or two) to mark her place and no maps (things she deems important). She liked that it had a concordance, and the larger print . She did like the breakthrough sections featuring highlighted verses to memorize, answers to questions, and other trivia information, the scene sections, the witness sections, and detective sections. She liked it better than the one above but like the other cover better.
If you are looking for a new Bible for your favorite tween, then the NIV THE INVESTIGATOR'S HOLY BIBLE is one to consider.
