The CSB Explorer Bible for Kids helps kids place God’s Word in the middle of God’s World.
• Engaging features, easy-to-read 8.5 pt text, and full-color design connect with kids’ natural curiosity and help them experience the wonder and truth of the Bible.
• From the two tables of content — one in order and one sorted alphabetically — to the topical concordance and index of Bible stories, each detail is designed to give kids the tools to find their way around God’s Word.
• The CSB Explorer Bible for Kids invites young readers to investigate both the world and words of Scripture, including the history of real people and their cultures.
Engaging full-color designs and clear language will welcome kids of all ages into exploring and understanding the Bible for themselves. With fun facts, timelines, photography, and more, they’ll see the Bible as real, exciting, and life-changing truth.
Children using this Bible can truly become explorers! As they read this Christian Standard Bible version of God's Word, they're invited to learn about the history and culture of the time and place mentioned. There are color illustrations, timelines, maps, and actual photographs to encourage them to dig deeper. Children of this generation love technology so they will be drawn to the special QR codes that take them to videos, discussion questions, and activity pages. I especially liked that the introduction to each book of the Bible offers children the answers to the important "Who, What, When, and Why” questions and that the words spoken by Jesus are printed in red text.
The title implies that it's for kids but this CSB Explorer Bible for Kids is perfect for the whole family to use. It's a wonderful resource for both personal and church libraries and it would also be a perfect Christmas gift!
