The Hands on Bible – and a GIVEAWAY!!!

The Hands on Bible – NLT

Tyndale

Tyndale sent me the Hands on Bible to review.  It is a complete bible with descriptions in the margins that help young readers understand more of the time frame and some customs in Bible times.   Many of the side margins give ideas for sharing Jesus with friends and family, in ways that young people can do. It also has about 8 activities for young people and a friend to do.  Best for 8-13 year olds. 

There are Introductions to each Book with cool facts and info from that book. Hands on Experiences with ideas  of things to do.  Bible Bios with info about people in the bible, written as if it were straight from them.  And Hands-On Bible activities (see the give away at bottom for more information).

This Bible is great when you are looking for extra ways to help explain points to kids, but I think it would be distracting for regular use.  I particularly liked the information in the side bars!

Two possible ways you can get this free!!

1. Leave a comment on this post telling who you would like to share this bible with and I will randomly draw one winner on Friday July 23. The winner will recieve a certificate good for a free bible which they must take to your local christian book store.  (US only, the winner will be responsible for any taxes and please remember to leave a way for me to contact you)  Enter before Noon Friday and I will have winner posted sometime before 5 pm Friday!!      

Using Random.org, the random winner is number 1.  thearcherfamily.   I will contact you to get you your gift certificate!!  Thank you for entering!!

2. Go to http://www.newlivingtranslation.com/05discoverthenlt/hands_on_bible_contest.asp this will also show you a few pages on the inside.  you have until Aug 16, 2010. 

*Note Tyndale sent me a copy of Hands on Bible for my family and a Bible certificate to be given away.  All  reviews on this bible are my own opinion, not those of the publisher or writers of this bible.

    What a fun thing to do-I’d love to review books and get them for free! 🙂 This Bible looks great, and I’d love to share it with my kiddos and use it with my childcare kids, too.

      I have two ideas for this…
      1) Obviously, save it and use it with Ava once she’s a little older. (hey, truth never changes…right?!)
      2) Working with 6th graders @ Church… some of them are still on the younger side and it looks like there would be some helpful tools in it. 🙂

    I would like to give this bible as a gift to my son who is 10 years old and struggling with a lot of challenges in life. He doesn’t have his father in his life and could use a bible as a guide. This bible appears to be fun and exciting enough to make him want to read it as apart of his daily reading.
