Title: NIrV May the Faith Be with You Holy Bible
“The NIrV May the Faith Be with You Holy Bible includes 24 full-color pages exploring the marvel of God’s creation and the meaning of faith, including outer space images and an intergalactic design,” the back jacket cover states.
~ What ~
This eleven-hundred-and-fifty-two-page hardbound targets children ages six to ten years old who want a Bible that mimics the Star War theme with its iconic font and focus on space. Including two dozen full-color inserts that cover Master Moments, Ways of Wisdom, and Use the Force, it is the New International Reader’s Version of the Bible. The beginning has an ownership page, Bible facts, and who is God discussion before the Scripture, ending with a dictionary and list of ninety-two great Bible stories.
~ Why ~
Since the Bible is the most important book in history, this is a good way for a young child to be in the Word. Having a standard version of the Bible with the added colorful inserts uniformly added enhances its contents. I liked the pages devoted to what sin is, famous people and children in the Bible, what Jesus says about thirteen topics, miracles of Christ, what is prayer, explanation of the Trinity, and the ABCs of Christianity to name a few.
~ Why Not ~
For those who want nothing to do with learning about the God of the Bible, this would not be a good choice. Some may not like the thin paper used. Like me, a few may not prefer the Bible version.
~ Wish ~
Although I am on the fence about commercializing a book by making it entertaining and eye-catching based on an iconic movie, I understand why this one is targeted toward young ones. I wish the paper were a little thicker.
~ Want ~
If your young child is at the spiritual level where they want their own Bible to read daily, this is a good choice, but note it is in the NIrV version.
Thanks to Zonderkidz for furnishing this complimentary book that I am under no obligation to review.
