Book Review: Kids' Devotional Bible

The Kids' Devotional Bible is a New International Reader's Version (NIrV) of the Bible. It features over 300 devotionals, which are written by Joanne E. DeJonge, Connie W. Neal, Lori VandenBosch, and Tracy Harrast.

In the introductory section called How to Use Your Devotional Bible, it states that this Bible "will teach you about God and his creation and how he wants you to live. There are enough devotions to last for a whole year.... The devotions...can be used as a tool by parents and teachers but also may be used to encourage children to have their own quiet times with God."

Some of the extra features throughout this Bible include Fun Art, Devotions for every weekday and 52 weekend devotionals with a highlighted Bible verse for the day, Introductions before each book of the Bible, Dictionary, Subject Guide regarding the devotionals, and Word of God, which is the Old and New Testaments written in the easy-to-read New International Reader's Version.  

Another introductory section is called A Word About the NIrV, which explains about how the NIrV was formed and what is included, as well as the ideal readers for this version and even more details about the NIrV, which is essentially a "Bible that's easy to read and understand."

The Kids' Devotional Bible is a wonderful resource and ideal for young readers, including elementary and junior high students, yet a wider range of ages would benefit from reading this Bible. I highly recommend this Bible.

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.
