ICB, Princess Bible (A BookLook Review)

princess bibleOriginally, I requested this particular Bible for my niece. I knew she would love it. I wasn’t expecting to love it as much as I do. I love the helpful tips. I love the translation. I absolutely love the highlights, that help me to grasp the Scriptures – for myself!

The design for this Princess Bible is just – beautiful! The crown really sets the stage, for what the Bible is all about.

As God’s daughters, we truly are princesses who have a King that loves them dearly. This is the message we want to send to our daughters, nieces, and friends. We want to see them touched by the heart of the King.

As with other Bible reviews, I have done. I will highlight certain features in the Princess Bible that I think – help enhance this time spent with the Word of God.

Top Three

So, let’s get started. Here is what my top three features of the Princess Bible include –

The Highlights:

Perhaps the quality I most appreciate as a seasoned Bible reader is the highlights. Throughout the contents of the Bible, there are Scriptures highlighted for our young readers. For example: In Psalm 121, the editors have added a highlight for verses 7-8. This is important for me , because I can have the added help. This is particularly helpful if I were to study the book of Proverbs with my niece, where there are many truths in one small passage. I don’t have to wonder “where do I start?!?”. Because, I have been given help.

The Translation:

It uses the International Children’s Bible.

I love the ease of the translation. It gets directly to the point. If I have trouble understanding what I am reading in my own personal Bible, I know I can have clarity added through the Princess Bible. God has gifted us with a Bible just for kids – and – it will help them understand His Word at their own level (and even help us adults, grow in our understanding of God’s Word).

The Inserts:

There are a variety of colorful inserts in this Bible. These are Bible Study helps that can be utilized by young readers or new believers of any age.

The Questions:

Throughout the Bible, there is a feature where others have answered questions regarding the Bible to help our young readers understand the importance of the Bible for their lives. For example: How Do I Know Jesus Loves Me?

Miracles of Jesus

The one I have to mention, aside from the questions segment, is the “Miracles of Jesus” – which is found at the end of the Bible. This is again very important, because it shows us how the power of God has taken place in the lives of others. As we see how He has changed others’ circumstances (and lives), we can learn that there is hope in the Resurrection Power of Christ.

In Conclusion –

I would recommend this particular Bible to my readers. Truthfully, you cannot beat the price for this Bible. Bibles are expensive, and they shouldn’t be. But, this one is a good Bible filled with God’s beautiful truth, provides some helpful tips, and is very reasonable in price. While the list price is $19.99, Amazon has it for $16.25 at the moment.

Just a reminder, I was given a free copy by the publisher, Thomas Nelson, through BookLook Bloggers Program, in exchange for a honest review.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through BookLook’sblogger review program, in exchange for a honest review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
