More free books! I love Booksneeze!

Holy Bible, originally by God, now an Internal Children's Bible published by Tommy Nelson

I was given this Bible to read and review from Thomas Nelson through an amazing bookreview program called Booksneeze. Check it out!

The International Children's Bible is a beautiful, fun Bible for children. I have a 10 year old nephew who would love the pictures in this Bible and proficiently read and understand it.

In addition to containing the Old and New Testament, there are many 3D pictures portraying Biblical scenes. These detailed pictures are very helpful for picturing what exactly happened, but they are not physically located next to the story they are depicting. For instance, the picture for creation is located in Joshua, not Genesis. Jonah and the Big Fish are shown in Jeremiah and the Conversion of Saul is found in John, not acts.

At the end of the Bible is a dictionary, a section titled “Where do I find it?” to help children find popular stories, a section titled “What God promises about”, and Memory verses for my life. There are also a few maps showing Abraham's Journey, The Desert Wanderings, Jesus' Last Week in Jerusalem, and Palestine in Jesus' Life. I am not a Biblical expert and these maps would really help even me to visualize the ancients' journeys.

I am not a fan of soft cover Bibles because they get beat up so easily, which is my only complaint about this book. It is beautiful, easy to read, has great pictures, and many helpful appendices. Thanks Thomas Nelson!!
