Book Review: ESV Family Devotional Bible (Includes Giveaway)

Posted by Julie on May 7, 2016 in Book Review, encouragement, God's Word, Julie Arduini, Life Lessons |
The ESV Family Devotional Bible

The ESV Family Devotional Bible

The ESV Family Devotional Bible is designed to help families read and apply God’s Word together. This full-color edition features the complete ESV text interspersed with engaging illustrations and gospel-centered devotions related to key Bible stories—guiding families through the entirety of God’s Word over the course of a year. Each devotion also includes discussion questions and suggestions for additional reading, helping families develop a habit of reading the Bible together and applying its truth to all of life.

This easy to use Bible has a lot to like. For kids, the cover is visually appearing and highlights the illustrations included in the Bible. There are a lot of devotions included that would be appropriate for an upper elementary age child to read and ask the questions that are also included. The questions prompt good discussion for family members, although some questions were worded a little hard for younger ones. I think between the reading, devotions, and questions, families have the opportunity to use the Bible as a catalyst for a daily time together where they can grow in faith.

For adults, there are maps to discover and talk about, and a convenient ribbon bookmark. It’s not a big Bible, so it’s easy to transport or have kids bring it to the dinner table. It’s well laid out. The font is a bit on the small side, but it’s a good price to pay for the smaller size.

I believe the ESV Family Devotional Bible would be a welcome addition to any family, so much so, I have ONE copy to give away. Leave me a comment here or on social media (I’m on FB, Twitter, Instagram, G+. Pinterest and Snapchat as @JulieArduini) on why you want this Bible and I’ll pick one US or Canadian winner May 10th.
