Sunday Snippet: A Bible GiveAway…

July 6th, 2010 · 10 Comments

I said there would be GiveAways and this is our first!!! Last week on our Sunday Snippet I posted “Se7en Ways to Personalize the Bible for Your Kids” and what better way than with their own copy of the Bible in a great chunky kiddable format. This weeks GiveAway is the New Century Version Youth Bible.

You can read all about this Bible here. And all I can say is that my older kids were drooling over this!!! It isn’t really a Bible for a beginner reader – it isn’t packed with pictures to grasp their interest. It is for the reader who is comfortable or on the brink of being comfortable with reading. But it is packed with blocks of information called Life Files, with real life applications of the Bible to topics that are relevant to kids – linking the Bible to their lives – not just a bunch of old guys marching about in the desert thank-you very much!!! Topics ranging from “When the going gets tough” to “No such thing as a free lunch.” Then there are smaller windows called sidelights which have insights into the Bible passage. The beginning of each book has an annotated map, a timeline, a reason to read that particular book and background information to the book.

This Bible also has a quick lookup contents page with where to find common people and events in the Bible. At the back there is a dictionary and topical concordance. I like it, I like the tips for reading the Bible… for instance: Why bother to read it, read it regularly, ask a lot of questions… They describe the Bible as a library of books and with that in mind you can’t expect to read it overnight… Slow and Steady wins the race. For all the fun bits and bobs that are in this Bible it isn’t talking down to the reader at all – difficult passages are explained in the boxes. This is a fabulous book and would make a great first “real” Bible.

As usual I have to thank Christian Book Discounters who kindly supplied the book for this GiveAway…

The GiveAway works in the usual way, comment before the end of this coming Friday, 9 July 2010, and I will draw and publish the winner next week! – I won’t respond to your comments as I do on our other posts because I don’t want to be included in our own giveaway.

Our GiveAway Books are open to everyone: If you have won a GiveAway before never fear – enter away. If you live on the far side of the world – enter away. Postage takes forever from here but eventually it should get to you!

Good luck and get commenting!

    It will be a few years before my kids are old enough for this, but your description of the “extras” makes me want to get my hands on it for myself! Happy Blog birthday!!

    this does look interesting. If I won it, I would send it to my sister who has some older kids in Florida. They are very active in their church and ibet they would love it.

    My older son would love this Bible – he likes details and the “why” behind things!

    Hi.. This would be fantastic for my 10 year old who is an avid reader. He currently reads my old Good News Bible given to me in 1977!!
