Book Review: Color Code Bible

The Color Code Bible is a New King James Version (NKJV) of the Bible, and the color coded theme is a positive way to enhance reading the Bible for younger ages.

On page xix, it states, "There are more than 800,000 words in the Bible.... Trying to make sense of it all can seem like a difficult task. This is why we created the Color Code Bible. It is designed to help you find things more easily and understand the themes of the Bible."

There are seven different color coded themes, which are gold for God, red for Jesus, purple for Heaven, navy for Sin and Evil, orange for Cleansed of Sin and New Life, green for Spiritual Growth and Living Your Faith, and blue for Prayer and Praise. The section titled Your Color Code Bible explains in detail about each color coded theme.

In addition to the biblical books of the Old and New Testaments, there are additional helpful guides. These sections are titled as What is the Bible, Who Wrote the Bible, Why Should You Read the Bible, Your Color Code Bible, Why Did God Send Us the Bible, About the New King James Version, and The Color Code Bible Highlighted Scripture Index, as well as My Bible Journal and several full-color maps. Plus, there are four Daily Bible Reading Plans, which include the following: Read Through the Bible in 365 Days, Read Through the Gospels in 90 Days, Read Through Psalms and Proverbs in 30 Days, and 365 Daily Topical Scripture Readings.

According to the back cover, "As the first Bible of its kind just for kids, the Color Code Bible uses a simple method that relates to how children learn. Seven topics are arranged by color to teach kids foundational Scripture concepts and encourage them to apply God's Word to their daily faith walk." 

The Color Code Bible is designed to (hopefully) encourage children to read their Bible more often and have a deeper understanding of what they are reading. It's geared towards young readers, from elementary school ages to junior high students, yet high school students would benefit from this Bible as well.

"Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness." Psalm 29:2  

Note: I received this book from Book Look Bloggers, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
