A Bible in the Mail!



My daughter was very excited to find this Bible in today's mail - the Girls Slimline Bible.  It's cute!

The Bible is shipped in a cardboard wrapper with the message "God loves you! You are a very special part of his plan.  In fact, God had you in mind when the Bible was written. He has so much to share with you in the pages of this amazing book. The more you read the Bible, the wise you become!  God wants you to know that you can always come into his presence boldly in faith - and he will lead you and guide you and help you."  I love their welcome introduction to the Bible!

The Bible itself is brightly colored with a super soft fabric that just begs to be snuggled.  Funny words for a Bible, I know, but it's true!  The cover image of "LOVE" is cheerful and very inviting. The inside cover is a bright pink with the words of Ephesians 3:12 written in shadow font:  "Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God's presence."  Not fearfully or with shame, but with confidence and boldness!  That's what I want my daughter to know about her approach to our King!

The Bible text is just straightforward small print text with no notes or anything.  But there's a pretty good concordance and dictionary in the back, that is great for curious minds that want to explore scriptures.  And I love the NLT translation, because it's easy for young readers to understand.

From the publisher:  We are confident you will fall in love with this adorable edition of God’s Word for girls. Girls Slimline Bibles feature the easy-to-understand New Living Translation text with a soft-fur, bright-neon LOVE design and silver glittery lining—hand-picked by pre-teen girls in our cover survey! The BOLD FAITH design on the back cover encourages girls to live out their faith in ways that bring God glory. This deluxe hardcover soft-fur edition of God’s Word for girls also features purple page edges, a neon orange ribbon marker, a special presentation page, and matching endsheets.  The New Living Translation text is excellent for young readers because it is so clear and they can understand what they are reading! When they can read and understand God’s Word, God can work in their hearts. Additional features in this edition include a 53-page dictionary/concordance to help locate passages on various topics, 8 pages of full-color maps, a 365-day reading plan, and more.

I would recommend this Bible to young girls ages 8-15. I can't wait to tell my daughter that she can keep it!  I received this book as a gift from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
