By the way...
**I received a copy of this book from Tyndale House Publications for review purposes. I was not compensated or required to write a positive review. The opinions exp
ressed in this review are entirely my own.**
The bible is called the GLIPIT BIBLE! “Glipit” stands for God’s Love Is Perfect, Patient and Personal! It is an awesome new bible for youth (and even adults!). The bible is the NLT (New Living Translation), and It was designed for youth ages 8-12. It reminds me of Leggos because of the little sectional pieces that fit together.
This bible is bright, colorful, and small enough (about 4x6) to fit in a medium to large size pocketbook or book bag. This bible is customizable! It comes with little sectional pieces that fit over square "bumps" that can be used to spell your name, decorate the bible, or make a picture on the covers of the bible. The bible, I received is for girls because it is a purple (and frankly I just don't see a boy carrying this color!), but it is also available in blue for boys!. It comes with 30 pink, 30 purple, and 30 orange pieces that you can use to customize it. It comes with closeable side latches and the front and back covers are soft silicone.
A detriment to this bible is that in an effort to keep it small and appropriate for pre-teens through teens to carry, the print is EXTREMELY small. This makes the bible hard to read. The bible also has NO ILLUSTRATIONS, NO MAPS, and NO HELPFUL GUIDES. People are very visual, so a bible that is 100% tiny words will not work well for youth ages 8-12. Unfortunately this will likely be a draw back for some parents.
If the inside was as entertaining and engaging as the outside it would be an AWESOME bible for youth. I am giving this bible to my grand daughter, but since the print is so small she will probably play with it and not read it.
I give this bible a 3 out of 5 stars. ***
I really wanted to LOVE this bible because it is so FUN (Yes, I played with the pieces!)! Unfortunately, because it is not really functional it is more of a deterrent from reading God's word.
