More than 3,000 verses are highlighted in colors throughout the text, drawing children’s attention to God’s Word. The NIV Color Code Bible for kids will teach your children key biblical truths on important themes and make learning the God’s Word fascinating and fun. More than 3,000 passages are color-coded on important faith themes. The first NIV version for children that is highlighted in full-color, this Bible will be simple for kids to read and understand.

A vibrant 64 pages in the beginning of the Bible will explain the color system as well as offer expanded study help features especially for growing your child’s solid faith.The readable type, bold in-text subject headings, and color-highlighted verses all make this Bible a fantastic purchase for any child! Full of bright colors, memorization aids, and the never-ending truth of God’s Good News, the Color Code Bible is an exciting new way to study God’s Word.

This was a really interesting NIV edition and the color coding is very helpful. I have previously read Bibles where the words of Jesus are all in red ink and that made reading easier, but this Bible takes the color coding to the next level. As you can see above, there are several different colors that are used and at the bottom of every Bible page is this color code so you won’t get confused. I think this is a great edition for someone new to the Bible, someone doing intense Bible studying or someone who is doing a read the Bible in a year type study. There are also several maps in the back of the Bible as well as Bible journaling pages. Overall, a great edition of the NIV Bible with some great color coding.

Thank you to the publisher, Thomas Nelson, for sending me a review copy of this book.
