I received a copy of NIV KIDS’ VISUAL STUDY BIBLE from Zondervan in exchange for an honest review. I knew this would be an interesting Bible, and I love exploring new Bibles. My mom and I share and discuss them. I hadn’t expected this, though. This Bible is incredible! At first sight, it can be intimidating. It is thick and heavy. Once you immerse yourself in the pages, however, you will be totally engrossed.
This Bible explains tidbits about what you’re reading to better understand and critically think about the passage. For example, on page 375, the sidebar explains that Jephthah’s daughter retreated to the mountains as her way of mourning the fact she would never marry or have children. Other than the tidbits, the book also contains illustrations and photographs.
This has easily become one of my new favorite Bibles. Although it is “for kids,” it can also be for adults. This would make a great gift for anyone knew to Christianity or a First Communion.
