'The Children’s Rainbow Edition of the Good News Bible is a wonderful Bible for the 7-11 age group and for schools to share. It is written in way that will attract young readers curiosity to discover more about the Bible and the Biblical characters. The layout makes this Bible so accessible with engaging and clear language that brings the Bible to life, which is enhanced through beautiful illustrations, where the reader is pointed to where to find the story in the Bible. I like the way it tells the ‘Big Story’ of the Bible through a reading trail, with the key words defined and clear explanations, which is enhanced though lots of questions and activities for every book of the Bible. This Bible will bring joy to many who
read it, especially 7-11 year olds, and will help deepen their understanding and help to answer the thought provoking questions that arise from exploring and reading the Bible. I recommend the Children’s Rainbow Edition of the Good News Bible as so much time and thought has been put into developing it and tailoring it for 7-11 year olds. It is a Bible that is much needed.'
