Little Man loves his bible Jan 19, 2007
I bought this bible for my 5 year old. After much research and many trips to various book and Christian book stores, I finally settled on this bible. It's language and manner are such that a young child can read and understand the concept of God's love without "dumbing it down". It's not the children's bible of old, which usually is a regular bible with pictures in it. This bible actually contains sections about life in bible times and a synopsis of the books of the bible with a short summary about main theme of each book. There are also question and answer sections scattered thoughout that have a scripture reading assignment and then it suggests brief activities that your child can do to help realize that God is working in their lives all the time. My son especially loves the "Did you know" pieces. It's a very interactive bible, but the activities only help to strengthen the integrity of the Bible and it's teachings. This bible is exactly what I was searching for
Adventure Bible Keeps the Young Readers Attention Jan 15, 2007
Much easier for the young reader than the traditional NIV. The Young Reader translation helps to keep the child's attention and works best for family Bible reading time.
Great for kids... and their parents! Feb 18, 2006
My son enjoys us reading this version of the Bible to him and also him reading it to us. He really wants to read it so thats a huge plus and its easy to understand but will be appropriate for him for a long time, I think.
Full-Color Illustrations? Where? Jan 26, 2003
One of the main reasons we bought this Bible for our son, besides the fact that he needed a version he could read on his own, was because the jacket advertized "full-color illustrations". But this is not true. The illustrations are two-color ink, and the text is typed in a mint green---not easy on the eyes! We ended up returning this Bible to the store for a more kid-friendly Bible.
Disappointed Oct 26, 2001
I was very disappointed with the Adventure Bible for Young Readers. I purchased them for use in Sunday school, and I had to return them. Although the translation is acceptable, the "helps,""blurbs," and editorial comments were filled with misinformation and theological interpretations inconsistent with our church's theology. This Bible could probably be used in a church that is extremely conservative, but in my opinion mainstream churches will not find it palatable.
