I received a complimentary copy of the NASB Adventure Bible as a member of the Bible Gateway Blogger Grid in exchange for an honest review of this Bible. [#BibleGatewayPartner]
The NASB Adventure Bible is a fantastic Bible for helping answer the many questions kids have about the Bible and for inspiring a genuine interest to learn about scripture.
I am impressed with all this kid’s Bible has to offer. It begins with a wonderful explanation [in color] for the children on how to use it, then it explains to them where to find key items and what they are, such as book name, chapter, section headers, verse numbers, and footnotes; which is incredibly helpful for any new Bible reader!
The very next page is one that I love and it’s a question about “How to know you are a Christian?” This is such a wonderful explanation that is written at a level children and will be able to easily grasp. It tells them to follow the ABC’S – A – Admit, B – Believe, C- Confess, and with the ABC’s they include scriptures for them to read. Considering who this Bible is for it is perfectly simple yet concise.
Moving on, there are so many incredible resources within the pages of this Bible while still maintaining the focus on the Word itself and helping guide kids through the Bible. I am truly pleased with the balance they present with the helpful explanations that are not overly worded risking losing kid’s attention, and the brief articles scattered throughout.
Some of the special features are, “Words to Treasure,” which highlights key verses throughout the scripture. “Did you know?” which offers interesting facts. While, “Life in Bible Times,” gives information about what it was like to live during the times of scripture. Many other perks are included that will be sure to grab kid’s attention. All of these things are colorfully illustrated and are done in the jungle theme that runs throughout the Bible.
Overall I am incredibly impressed with this Bible. I can’t say that enough, to be honest. It feels like a Bible geared for older readers but designed with kids in mind to help encourage, inspire and motivate them to read scripture, understand it, and apply it early in their lives. I am impressed that this children’s Bible has the words of Jesus in red. The only negative is the small print. It could have been just a little larger.
Do I recommend the NASB Adventure Bible? Yes. There is no doubt that your child will love this Bible.
