Review: Investigator's Holy Bible, NIV by:Zondervan
About the Book:
Have you ever used a magnifying glass? It makes everything bigger and easier to see, right? Detectives and scientists magnify things to understand them better. Well that’s just what this Bible does—it’s a magnifying glass to help children understand the Word of God better.
The Bible is a gift from God, but many of the things written in the Bible are hard for kids to understand. In fact, sometimes they’re downright mysterious to kids. Using kid-friendly language and a detective theme, the two color NIV Investigator’s Holy Bible explains the Bible text for kids ages 6–10. Two central mystery-solving characters invite children to investigate the Bible using the following features:
Evidence—Bible book introductions answer what kind of book it is, who wrote it, what happens, and the “best part”
Breakthrough—answers questions kids might ask, such as “Who were the Philistines?” and “What is The Spirit of God?”
Scene—includes descriptions highlighting geographical information pertinent to a verse
Witness—explains the meaning and history behind Biblical names
Detective—quizzes students on what they have learned
Case Closed—explores how the events of a particular book of the Bible relate to children as individuals
Bibles were always a part of my childhood. I earned my first one for memorizing John 3:16 when I was a very young child around the age of 5. I was so proud of that little New Testament. Bibles have come a long way since then. You can get them in many different versions, types, colors, coverings, etc. This little ditty is perfect for your child or grandchild that loves a real good mystery or investigation.
He or she will love the adventure this Bible will take them on. It has lots to keep their little hearts and minds busy. I listed above all this sweet Bible has to offer. My favorite features of the Bible are the quizzes given to the children to test what they have learned and the evidence section. I really like that this Bible goes in further depth to explain the how's and why's behind some of the stories listed. In my opinion it is a way to break them in to get a study bible later on.
This Bible is geared for ages 6-10 years and grades 1-5. It retails for $27.99.
