May the Faith Be with You - NIrV

An obvious play on Star Wars, of course, but this version of the Bible, aimed at young children (ages 6-10) works.

Dispersed throughout are 'stand alone' pages entitled 'Use the Force', 'Ways of Wisdom' and 'Master Moment'. These pages highlight the areas of the Bible that the reader may find useful. For example, on one of these pages, it asks "what does the bible say about": and lists a number of feelings and issues that someone may be experiencing such as anger, happiness, death, love, revenge and where to find the guiding passage, be it from Psalm's, Matthew or Deuteronomy.

This a well thought out Bible. It guides the reader to not only look at the main text of the Word, but aides a young person in finding spiritual guidance. I really liked that it asked questions such as 'Who is God' and offered passages to read and consider if you're feeling lonely, jealous or struggling to be honest. Whilst its geared at young readers, it would work for anyone of any age (especially Star Wars fans!). A recommended read.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Handlebar Publishing in exchange for a review. The opinions expressed are my own and I am not required to give a positive critique.
