My Take on the Bible
This was a great Bible for young people. Not only is it colorful  and user-friendly, it also has some great asides that will make children understand more about the Bible and the passages throughout the Bible. I was impressed with how easy this Bible was to understand and how well the Bible was set up to help all kids take the most out of the passages themselves. I always remember that the Bible that I had as a young adult was really more of an adult Bible and was not easy to comprehend and there really was no guidance in it to hep me comprehend what I was reading which did not encourage me to read on my own, this was different and I believe will encourage and motivate any young adult to delve deeper into the text to gain a broader understanding of what the book is sharing with them individually.
