NIV Investigator's Holy Bible Review
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
I received a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's Review- If you have a child who asks a lot of questions, this is going to be a really good book for them. Of course it is a Bible and so it is faith based and for some that might not be what they need. I think that for my family they can immerse themselves in every aspect of learning and take what they want from it without any pressure. The book is also going to be easier for slower readers to get.
