Book Review: "Faith Builders Bible"

The "Faith Builders Bible" is a New International Reader's Version meant for children aged 6-10.  This version is a simplified version of the regular NIV Bible. Other than the 12 double sided full color pages that feature Lego-type creations to portray Bible stories, this Bible is rather plain. The Bible itself has no special features other than a dictionary and a list of "Great Bible Stories". The full color pages topics include: Noah Builds an Ark, Animals 2 x 2, Building the Tower of Babel, The Ten Commandments, Building the Tabernacle, Solomon Builds God's Temple, Bringing Down Jericho, Samson's Demolition, David Defeats Goliath, Psalm 23: A Psalm of David, Jesus is Born, Feeding a Crowd, A Change of Heart (Zacchaeus), Jesus Walks on Water, The Last Supper, Jesus and the Cross,  The Lord's Prayer, The ABCs of Salvation, The Fruit of the Building With a Strong Foundation, a presentation page, Building with the Books of the Bible, and Can You Build.... These pages give a brief overview of the story and a "Building Block Verse" to go along with it.

My sons like LEGO bricks so I thought this would be a cute Bible for them. The full color pages are cute, but overall, this Bible is not what I expected and I was disappointed in it.

I was given a free copy of this Bible by the zblogsquad in order for me to give an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own and I was not compensated in any way.
