Children’s Corner — NIV Investigator’s Holy Bible

8 Mar

Have you ever used a magnifying glass? It makes everything bigger and easier to see, right? Detectives and scientists magnify things to understand them better. Well that’s just what this Bible does—it’s a magnifying glass to help children understand the Word of God better.

The Bible is a gift from God, but many of the things written in the Bible are hard for kids to understand. In fact, sometimes they’re downright mysterious to kids. Using kid-friendly language and a detective theme, the two color NIV Investigator’s Holy Bible explains the Bible text for kids ages 6–10. Two central mystery-solving characters invite children to investigate the Bible using the following features:

Evidence—Bible book introductions answer what kind of book it is, who wrote it, what happens, and the “best part”
Breakthrough—answers questions kids might ask, such as “Who were the Philistines?” and “What is The Spirit of God?”
Scene—includes descriptions highlighting geographical information pertinent to a verse
Witness—explains the meaning and history behind Biblical names
Detective—quizzes students on what they have learned
Case Closed—explores how the events of a particular book of the Bible relate to children as individuals


My Impressions:

Wow! What a great Bible for kids! The NIV Investigator’s Holy Bible is a study Bible that will appeal to elementary aged children as they discover all that God’s Word holds for them. Using the easily readable NIV translation, this Bible adds a number of features that will make the Bible real — information on setting and author, meanings of names, and explanations of concepts. There’s even a quick quiz to help kids retain what they have just read. This Bible is just the thing to engage young minds and encourage them to explore what God has for them.


Audience: children ages 6-10.
