The Big picture Interactive Bible is touted on the cover as a Bible that will “Bring the Bible to Life for Kids.” Indeed it is a beautiful, bright, vibrant looking Bible.
The Big Picture Interactive Bible comes with access to a free app to download to use along with the Bible to see the illustrations in the Bible come alive. The app was simple for me to find and download on my Ipad. It was also fairly easy to use with no previous experience. Along with the learning portions of the Bible app, there is also a game portion to make learning a little more fun and challenging.
This Big Picture Interactive Bible also includes a lot of special features. First of all, I would also add that this Bible has very nice dark print although it is not real large. I also like that it is a red letter Bible. I couldn’t find out the type size but I am guessing it is 8 point. Also, this Bible uses the Christian Standard Bible translation. This history of this Bible translation is also explained on a full page in this Bible. The Big Picture Interactive Bible’s special features include the beautiful pictures that come to life through the app. The narrator is Jenna Lucado, daughter of Max Lucado. There are introductions for each book of the Bible, verses to remember, a dictionary that defines some of the more challenging words, a question and answer section because we know kids often ask Why?, and a Christ Connection section which helps kids see how Christ connects the new and old testaments. The back of this Bible contains an index to many Bible stories, a topical concordance for kids, and a nice full, color map section.
I thought the Big Picture Interactive Bible was especially nice for the intended age group of 6 to 10 year-olds. When kids are asking questions, this Bible offers more than text but also answers to their questions. I especially like the dark text, red letters for Christ’s words, and the many features of this Bible. Adding in the Bible app is also a nice feature. I highly recommend this Bible for young people.
I received this Big Picture Interactive Bible from Broadman and Holman Publishers at no charge. I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for the book.
