Book Review

I was delighted to receive this new Bible for review.  In addition to the Bible, there was an additional prayer journal.  A great prize for your young Bible scholar. It is softbound with wide lines for young writers.

My favorite part about this Bible is that it includes questions and answers for children.  It asks the kind of questions that a young believer would ask, questions I have been asked in the past.  For example, may I pray for my pets?

My only complaint is that the Bible comes with features suitable for a younger person studying the Bible, with accents in color and details that would appeal to the elementary age group, but it is written in a way that would be difficult for a struggling reader.  The font is small, and the translation, while suitable for many readers is not suited for our youngest church members.  I would not present this Bible to a student under middle school in age, therefore, the term child on the cover would be inappropriate.
