Hey, Kids! Here’s a Bible Designed to Help You Entirely Miss the Point of the Bible!
I have reviewed, literally, hundreds of “children’s Bibles” over the years, and no matter how many times I do, I am still stunned, and shocked, to see how so-called Christian Bibles and so-called Christian authors so horribly neglect the Gospel when they prepare these resources. Well, here is the latest monstrosity, from Zondervan Publishing Company, which, of course, is now owned by the Ruppert Murdoch media empire, which is concerned only about the bottom line. It’s no surprise that Zondervan is also responsible for releasing NIV 2011, the new NIV translation that misses the mark horribly. As mentioned in this post.

Join the Berenstain Bears as they explore the most amazing book of all time—the Bible. Filled with 18 full-color pages of delightful illustrations of the beloved Berenstain Bear characters, the Berenstain Bears Holy Bible, NIrV highlights verses that feature virtues supported by God’s Word. This Bible will teach children ages 4 to 7 more about God and how he wants them to live.
What’s the Bible all about? Virtues! But, kind reader, consider that you do not need a Bible to learn about “virtues” … you can get great lessons in virtues and how God wants us to live by reading fairy tales and legends, and Aesop’s fables or Mother Goose stories. You see, the Law is not unique to the Bible. It’s embedded in the very fiber of God’s creation. But the Gospel, alone, is unique to the Holy Scriptures and that is what the Bible is really all about: Christ and His work for you and His gifts and blessings for you. Thankfully, you do not have to buy junk like this. You have a much better choice. Ahem….click here.
