Book Review: My Holy Bible for Girls, Journal Edition by Zondervan

We have lots of Bibles in our household and the majority of them are read, at least I hope they are! Although my daughter already has a Bible of her own, I was drawn to this one. I am a writer and I have instilled in my children the necessity of writing well. With that in mind, "Journal Edition" jumped out.

This beautiful hardcover NIV edition by Zondervan contains the complete NIV text. What is different about this one, however, is that there are nicely lined margins on each page of Scripture on which girls can journal their thoughts. As they read a passage, those thoughts, and possible sermon notes, get put on the page as they see fit. When they have read and re-read this Bible, hopefully they will notice how their own maturity and wisdom concerning the Scriptures developed over time. I love it.

I gave this Bible to my daughter (15 years old, so not exactly just for tweens) for Christmas. She loves it and I notice that she has begun bringing this edition to church with her. She is a great journal believer so I believe it was the right thing for her.

As for me, I have Bibles in different translations, the NIV being one of them. I am glad that my daughter has a copy that she can understand and that she WANTS to read. As an aside, I love the elastic that keeps this particular edition closed and looking cute.
