Dive into God’s Word as you enjoy heartfelt devotional time with the ICB Jesus Calling Bible for Children. This is the first full-text ICB Bible for children with 160 full-page devotions from the Jesus Calling children’s devotional. The two-color Bible text and devotional content are complemented by an additional 96 vibrantly colored Bible story inserts that tell key stories from the Bible, along with a takeaway application. Also included are 365 highlighted key memory verses for young readers, prayers, and kid-friendly applications. The ICB Jesus Calling Bible for Children will help your children grow in knowledge and in relationship with the Lord.
I have reviewed several children’s Bible’s in the last few months and they have all been pretty great. I really like this edition, with the Jesus Calling children’s devotionals throughout the Bible, along with a great deal of really vibrant, colorful illustrations. There is also an index in the beginning where you can look up verses by different topics.
The devotionals themselves are also excellent and worded in a way that is easy for children to understand, which I think plays a big part when teaching young children both Bible verses and stories. This particular Bible is marketed for children between the ages of 8-12 and I think that is the perfect range. You can of course use this Bible for simply reading verses and stories to younger children and I think it would still hold their attention because of the illustrations throughout. Overall, it’s a really great children’s Bible with great devotionals, explanations and illustrations throughout. Thank you to the publisher for sending me a review copy.
