ELCLOUD THOUGHTS:

My 11 year old son LOVES the NIV Boys Bible.  He gladly exchanged it for his older Bible, and barely wanted me to borrow it to write this little review. When I asked him what he likes best about it, he said he loves the Makin' It Real application lessons scattered throughout the Bible, and he loves reading the Grossology segments.  I love any Bible that helps my son understand God's Word and apply it to his life.  But I also like that this is a hardcover Bible, rather than softcover.  We've gone through too many softcover Bibles with our kids.  So, we give the NIV Boys Bible two thumbs up.
