I received a sample copy of this Bible in exchange for my honest review. This post contains affiliate links.
My seven-year old son is finally to that point where he is requesting his own Bible. I love that he is ready to expand his knowledge about God, but after reviewing Bibles for the last year, I have standards I want for his Bible. I want his Bible to have that kid-friendly appeal, have study guides, and I want it to be in the easier to read, NIV.
Until recently, I wasn’t able to find a Bible for him that we both really liked. But then I got ahold of the NIV Color Code Bible in leathersoft backing. We both love everything about this Bible and we are so happy we found it!
About the Color Code Bible
The NIV Color Code Bible i is the same Bible you may remember I reviewed a few weeks ago, but in leathersoft backing. With more than 1,600 verses highlighted in colors throughout the text, this Bible will teach your children key biblical truths on important themes throughout God’s word. The NIV Color Code Bible highlights ten important topics including:
- New Life
- Spiritual Growth
The NIV Color Code Bible is one of my favorite Bibles for children that I have reviewed. Unlike some other kid Bibles, this one is straight and to the point. In the front of this Bible, kids are given the necessary information to understand why each highlighted topic is highlighted and why it is highlighted in a certain color. Then, if you read a little further, children are given a very elaborate 365-day reading plan. I found the reading plan perfect for the intended 6-12 age group because it wasn’t anything too hard for you to do with your child or them to do on their own.
After the reading plan, a context of all the highlighted verses (organized by color) is shown so you can look up any Bible verse that you may want to on one of the ten topics. Once you finally get to the Bible, the pages are very clean and a small index is shown at the bottom to remind you what the highlighted verses are for.
Towards the back of this Bible, this Bible has everything you would expect most bibles to have; maps, journaling pages, and even a table of weight and measurements. While the NIV Color Code Bible may not have some of the bells and whistles other kid’s Bibles do, I liked that this one was straight to the point and deigned in full-color.
If you are looking for a Bible for your child, I highly recommend this one. You can check it out on Thomas Nelson’s website.
