Bible Review: NIV FaithGirlz Bible

O

ur eleven year older daughter loves the color pink and wanted a new Bible, so what’s better than this NIV Faithgirlz! Bible?!?!?!  She loves it!  As a parent, it’s rewarding to see her want to read her Bible, and even more so when she comes to me with different things she has read and learned, wanting to share it with me.  One thing she especially likes in this Bible is the little information boxes called “oh, i get it!“, giving special explanations to verses.  Click the picture to the right for an example on who Nehemiah was.  
As a homeschool mom, I appreciate the little “quizzes” throughout the Faithgirlz! Bible  with questions, and allowing lined space to write a “recap” of the story.  There are pretty pink and floral note pages in the back  and each chapter starts with a wonderful introduction, giving easy to understand background information.  Our daughter is excited to have this, use it and take to church!
Though the Faithgirlz! Bible was created especially for girls ages 9-12, my older girls were even interested in it as well!  We always can learn new things from God’s Word, and this Bible definitely encourages that!

A special thank you to Audra Jennings & The B&B Media Group for providing the Faithgirlz! Bible in exchange for an honest review.
Below is information provided to me regarding this Bible
Discover the Beauty of Believing
with the Faithgirlz! Bible
Contributor Nancy Rue guides girls to discover a personal relationship with God.
Every girl wants to know she’s totally unique and special, and contributor Nancy Rue helps them do just that in the revised edition of the NIV Faithgirlz! Bible. As a leading tween expert, Rue teaches girls that the Bible is real and relevant and, best of all, that the story of God and His people is also their story. Girls can now grow closer to God as they discover the journey of a lifetime, in their language, for their world.
The new Faithgirlz! Bible was developed especially for girls ages 9 to 12. Everything in it is written with a tween girl’s experience in mind, and it features the most popular Bible translation in the world, the New International Version. The features explain hard-to-understand things in the Bible and guide girls to put the Scripture to work in their own lives. The Faithgirlz! Bible focuses on sharing faith with friends and gives real ways for girls to do that.
Each book of the Bible has activities that Faithgirlz! make God’s Word more relevant than ever. And, of course, because it was developed for Faithgirlz! readers, they can expect to find it jam-packed with customized content and artwork that really makes the Bible stand out. Girls will love the cool design, the interactive features and the feeling of knowing that God’s Word is there for them whenever they need it. Some of the features included are:
  • Book Introductions—Girls will read the who, when, where and what of each book of the Bible.
  • Dream Girl—Girls will use their imaginations to put themselves in the story.
  • Is There a Little (Eve, Ruth, Isaiah) in You?—Girls will see for themselves what they have in common with women of the Bible.
  • Words to Live By—Girls will discover great Bible verses for memorizing.
  • Oh, I Get It!—Girls will find answers to Bible questions they’ve wondered about.
Nancy Rue says, “I hope the Faithgirlz! will help girls grow a friendship with the Bible, their own relationship. It asks questions, asks them to think and challenges them to apply what they’re learning. That’s how they’ll find a deep, personal relationship with God, rather than just by following rules or saying what they’ve been told without really thinking about it. Rules are important, of course, but they only make sense when they really believe the message of the Scriptures. That’s what this Bible is about.” The Faithgirlz! Bible is the perfect Bible to support girls in their journey into the “beauty of believing.”
The main edition of the Faithgirlz! Bibleis hardcover, but it is also available in two Italian Duo-Tone designs. For better portability, there is also an NIV Faithgirlz! Backpack Bible. This compact edition does not include the in-text features that the full-size edition has, but it does have twelve full-color pages of Faithgirlz! fun, the words of Christ in red and a ribbon marker. An ebook version is also planned for electronic use.
