The Under the Sea Holy Bible, NIrV is a perfect gift for children ages 6 to 10. Following the popular underwater theme, sparkling fish images will delight children as they learn of God’s love for us and all of creation.
Regardless of how it's formatted or fashioned, I believe the Bible in and of itself is a collection of published documents that everyone young and old should read. Having said that, I support having a Bible that has a good hook to get readers interested. The Under the Sea Holy Bible is engaging with its prismatic pages of ocean creatures.
This particular version is an NIrv version, which means it's similar to the NIV version but some sentences and words are shorter, making it easy for new believers and young children.
It is the Bible as we know it, dotted with hued pages of sea fish and animals. On each of those pages is a lesson or example to help children better understand what's taught in the Bible. For example, one of the pages shows a fish and explains what prayer is by using your hands. Another page explains The Ten Commandments simplistically. For example, commandment eight is explained "Don't take anything that does not belong to you" and commandment four says "One day of your week should be set aside for resting and worshipping God".
The back of the book has a list of 92 Great Bible Stories that kids can refer to. It covers everything from The Ten Plagues and David and Goliath to Solomon's Wise Ruling and The Birth of Jesus.
A dictionary is also in the back to explain words that might be easy for us to understand but harder for kids to comprehend. It goes through words such as crucify, baptize, manna, and synagogue. The cover of the Bible is covered in foil and sparkle for a pretty shine.
One person will win an Under The Sea Holy Bible.
