Format: Hardcover
My greatest wish for my children is that they have a close, intimate relationship with God - and I am firmly convinced that the NIV Boys Bible can help my son achieve that goal! The name really says it all - this Bible is designed, from front to back, to capture the interest of pre-teen boys - and it absolutely succeeds! Not only does it have a cool cover that will have it's owner showing off this Bible to friends, but it is filled with fantastic features that will make him devour the book front to back. Even as a grown man, I have to admit I enjoyed the "grossology" sections, such as the one in Ezekiel 4:12 where it explains that God had told Ezekiel to burn human excrement to cook his food. Eeeeew! Other great features include things like the "Makin' it real sections", which help the reader apply the passage to a modern type situation and provides greater insight to the passage. I also liked the "Words to Live by" inserts that highlight key verses that make great memorization aids! Finally, the NIV translation that is paired with all of these great features makes for an easy-to-read and understandable version of the Bible that will have the readers devouring the words with delight!

I highly recommend this Bible and grant it 5 out of 5 stars. son better be careful that this Bible doesn't mysteriously end up at his father's bedside!

Format: Hardcover
Many publishers are coming out with new Bibles every year. Zondervan is well known for the Bibles that it publishes. It is no surprise to see a new NIV Bible specially created for boys ages 9 to 12. This hardcover Bible is designed to encourage your boy to dig into the Word of God so that he can discover who He is and how He can impact his life.

Each book of the Bible is introduced with background information which will help your son to understand the characters and stories. Then there are also little boxes of information throughout the Bible like the following ones:
What's the Big Deal? will help your son to discover who is involved in the chapter, what happened and how everything connects with God.
Makin' It Real is a small devotional within the Bible which will help your child to discover what he can learn from the Bible even though he lives in the 21st century. Yes the Bible still makes sense today and these boxes will help your son to discover how what he read can apply in his daily life.
The Check It Out boxes will provide facts and trivia about the Old and New Testaments. It's a great way to develop his knowledge on fascinating information found in the Bible.
The Grossology will concentrate on the messy parts every one has to go through in life - especially the ones of the characters found in the Bible. God is always present no matter what happen in your life. This is a great way to see God in action in the lives of the people involved in the Bible.
Finally but not the least, the Words to Live By will highlight verses to help your son to keep God's Word in his heart. I found that memorization is a great way to learn the Scriptures and these highlights will identify which verses are perfect to learn by heart.

NIV Boys Bible April 10 2012
By Renee K - Published on
Format: Hardcover
NIV Boys Bible (Hardcover) This is a Bible designed specifically for boys ages nine through twelve. My little boy is much younger but that didn't stop him from claiming it as his own.

He was excited to have a Bible in it without pictures in it. "Just like Daddy's Bible", he proudly proclaimed. All he needed was a new notebook and a sharp pencil to take notes with Daddy while reading. He was also excited that it was the complete Bible not one that just has a few of the most popular Bible Stories in it.

This hardback bible makes it durable for boys who sometimes forget that they are handling God's word.
The cover is very eye catching with it plated metal look on the cover. The pages are highlighted in orange and a steel blue. Very boyish look to the pages with the each in-cased in a tool box like design.

Fun in-text features help boys dig deep into the Word and learn about amazing people, facts and stories of the Bible. It will appeal to boys features such as:

Introductions to each book of the Bible
Hundreds of highlighted verses worth memorizing
What's the Big Deal?--Need-to-know biblical stories and people
Check It Out--Interesting and fun facts about Bible times and characters
Grossology--Gross and gory stuff they never knew was in the Bible
Makin' It Real--Help for applying Bible stories to their everyday lives

I love the fact that the Bible is designed with their audience in mind yet doesn't take away from the fact that this is the Word of God. I think my little boy will love this particular Bible for many years to come.

This book has been provided to me my by B&B Media Group, Inc Publisher free of charge and in no way was I asked to give a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

A Tween Bible for Boys April 20 2012
By One Desert Rose - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This masculine, tire-tread cover in black and gray makes this Bible appealing to young boys. The inside pages are written in navy blue with rusty orange highlights to catch their attention and make the Bible more exciting to read.

The content features are relevant to how boys think (grossology) and yet get to the heart of Biblical issues for their own lives. Headings introduce the topics discussed in each chapter, which helps them recall what they just read. I would like to have seen a section that helps boys learn how to tell the Bible story in their own words, preparing them to be effective leaders and teachers.

I especially love all the different features listed below, as they prompt a more active role on the part of the boys to grow stronger in the Lord and be a doer of His Word!

The features included are:

* Book Introductions-Who, What, When, Where. and Why?

* Words to Live By-Hundreds of highlighted verses worth memorizing

* What's the Big Deal?-Need-to-know biblical stories and people

* Check It Out-Interesting and fun facts about Bible times and characters

* Grossology-Gross and gory stuff they never knew was in the Bible

* Makin' It Real-Help for applying Bible stories to their everyday lives

At the end of the Bible are the following features:

Table of weights and measures
The ABCs of becoming a Christian
Through the Bible in a year Bible plan
Promises from the Bible
Perspectives from the Bible
Several pages for personal notes

The NIV Boys Bible has been written for tween boys between the ages of 9-12. As a parent, I would love a Bible like this to challenge my son(s) to grow stronger in the Lord and be a doer of His Word!

A great gift just in time for Easter!

Special thanks to Diane Morrow of The B&B Media Group for sending me a review copy. No monetary compensation was exchanged.

This translation is lacking. July 28 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm sorry to report that this Bible is NOT a newer version of the NIV translation many of us know, rather it has been modified from the more-recent translation (the TNIV I think) that was pulled off shelves due to controversy several years ago.

A number of gender-specific verses were modified to be gender generic in this version, including the well-known Matthew 4:19 where Jesus calls the first disciples to become "fishers of men": this Bible says "fishers of people". Even if it does not dramatically alter the meaning, a well-known reference point is altered in this version and that's a problem for me.

While my son enjoys the features in this Bible, I am disappointed that the publisher has not been forthright in explaining to the consumer how they came about this version. I am now looking for NIV Bibles with 1984 copyright date or will go back to NKJV and ESV for my children.

Great features for preteen boys April 14 2012
By Val C - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The NIV Boys Bible has some "boy-centric" offerings like "Grossology" and "Makin' It Real," both giving a current day perspective to the events of the Bible. And the "What's the Big Deal?" sections are great for providing personal application even at this preteen, gotta-wonder-what-they're-thinking stage. "Words to Live By" provide eye-catching highlights scattered throughout. Great introductory material for each book of the Bible and interesting facts spread throughout too.

Two final observations:

1. The text in this Bibles is not black - it's blue with gold accents. This will probably not be an issue for 99.9% of readers but for a small minority it is something so be aware of if you consider purchasing it.

2. The sound of the binding makes me wonder just how durable this Bible will be over the course of time. Hardcover, of course, should hold up well to use but again, it's something to be aware of when investing in a Bible that will (hopefully) take a lot of use. Of course, only time will tell if that's a real issue or not.

Otherwise, nicely geared to the age group and I also think would work for a shared family devotional time, or even for adults that want a little extra information in their daily study. There's some fun stuff behind that cool cover!

Read Luke 4:4 in NIV then in New King James...over 200 omissions in NIV Sept. 26 2012
By A. Brackman - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Buyer be very cautious and informed. I called the NIV translation department to ask why the obvious omission below, using only one example of over 200:

NIV Luke 4:4
Jesus Answered, 'It is written: 'Man does not live on bread alone.'

NKJV Luke 4:4
But Jesus answered him, saying, 'It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.' ('...but by every word of God' is from Deut 8:3 which Jesus was quoting')

Major difference IMO.

Why the difference (remember, over 200 differences) I curiously asked the man who was one of the translators of the NIV translation. He replied 'Well the manuscripts were more ancient and it is likely that the availability of papyrus was sparse so they left out some of Jesus' sayings since much of the Bible was common knowledge.'

More ancient was the key for them, no concern over the ommissions. I said if you find a manuscript and it is more ancient but less complete wouldn't publishing it only cause confusion, and we know who is the author of confusion. He said we just felt it should be published because we found it, the people can choose. Well, most do not know the major ommissions and will be reading a less complete translation is perfect as it is a very difficult task to have exact meanings from one language to the other (idioms, changes in definitions over time, culture, etc)the KJV and NKJV (which was only updated to reflect our modern English language, no omissions from original KJV)...but when the omissions are so 'obvious' it makes one think $ (man) was at the root of this project, not God's Word (Holy Spirit).

Please check out the differences. Find out how arduous and time consuming the many scholars undertook to translate the King James bible (which the recent Dead Sea Scrolls authenticate the manuscripts they used, perhaps God's way of refuting anything less accurate(?)). Then compare the NIV team and time frame...most importantly, the fruit is not healthy if it lacks proper nutrition of God's Holy Word. Would you want a more complete translation or one that had several ommissions due to lack of materials. Sounds like the work of men alone. The Holy Spirit would never have been a part of such a project that would water down His Holy Truth.

God said 'My people perish for lack of knowledge...' Pray, trust, investigate and put Christ, The Word at the forefront of all of your life choices, loving Him above all else, and love others as yourself...and you will be blessed. Eternity with Jesus begins right now, what an amazing, patient, loving God we serve!

I purchased the NKJV Early Readers Bible and read it daily with my grandchildren (6 and 7) and bought each of them a book cover that reflected their personalities/gender. They love reading God's Word...children are so precious to Jesus, we have a choice to share the whole Truth and nothing but the Truth, or a less complete Truth...I pray you let the Holy Spirit guide your choice while investigating and choosing what is best to help teach your children.

Inspired by His love for you all.
