A Review

This Bible is okay, but not exciting. The cover suggests that this NIrV Bible might be of interest to a child who was enthralled with a Disney movie featuring fish. It is not quite so tightly connected to a Disney movie as the similarly formatted Frost Bible; but having now seen the Bible; but I no longer think this Bible would be exciting to a child.

With few exceptions, the Under the Sea Bible is more a pew Bible than a devotional Bible or a Study Bible for any audience, even less so for the apparent intended audience. The extremely small print will be difficult for a young reader to follow - making it less than ideal for a young audience. The only thing that distinguishes it from a pew bible are the 8-12 sheets of colored images containing devotional thoughts scattered throughout the book. Those images do include additional pictures of fish, but the images convey no devotional content except for the words printed there.  Also, the covers and binding do have a “fishy” appearance that might seem exciting if it added anything. An extremely small five page dictionary, much like you would expect to find in a pew Bible, is also included. Surprisingly, there are no maps.
I had hoped this Bible would be a suitable gift for a grandchild. I will not be giving it this year. There are other and better choices for the granddaughter or grandson - The Under the Sea Bible will not do.

This review is based on a free copy provided by the publisher for the purpose of creating this review.  The opinions expressed are my own.
