Review of the Faith Builders Bible from Zonderkidz12:38 PM
My kids love building with brick toys. They would do it all day long, if we didn't have other goals for our family and homeschool. We were able to review the Faith Builders Bible this month, and it has changed the enthusiasm level my kids have had for reading the Word. It's now available from Zonderkidz, a leading publisher of Bible-based materials for young people and families.
First, these Bibles are the New International Reader's Version, a version that is (in my opinion) accurate to the intent of the Word, as well as is easy for kids to read. If you've had reluctant Bible readers, but are ready for them to move past collection of Bible "stories", this may be the book you've been waiting for to make that transition without tears or fighting.
In addition to full-color photos of re-enacted scenes throughout (with brick figures, of course), there are little challenges scattered between the pages that ask kids to try to re-build the scenes with their own brick toys. Instructions aren't provided, but most seasoned builders can figure it out. There are Scripture passages to coincide with each, and a Building Block verse at the bottom, which is usually one "core" Scripture that all Christians should hold near and dear. After all, God asks us to hide the Word in our heart so that we won't sin against Him. What better way to get kids starting this practice than with this Bible?
