Review + Giveaway: NIV Adventure Bible Polar Exploration Edition

When I was in the third or fourth grade, I desperately wanted The Adventure Bible. My parents gave it to me for Christmas that year (I mean, were they really going to deny my wish for a Bible???), and I loved it and used it for years.

I didn't know if The Adventure Bible still existed until I got a review request for the Polar Exploration Edition. I'm so glad this Bible is available!

Ready for a frosty Adventure? Embark on a fun, exciting trek through God’s Word with the NIV Adventure Bible, now in an all-new polar exploration theme! While on this arctic adventure, readers meet all types of people, see all sorts of places, and learn all kinds of facts about the Bible. And most importantly you’ll grow closer in your relationship with God.

Features of the NIV Adventure Bible, Polar Exploration Edition include:

• The same trusted Adventure Bible content in a frosty new theme

• Full-color images of polar animals, arctic outposts, and icy landscapes throughout make learning about the Bible even more engaging

• Life in Bible Times—Articles and illustrations describe what life was like in ancient days

• Words to Treasure—Highlights great verses to memorize

• Did You Know?—Interesting facts help you understand God’s Word and the life of faith

• People in Bible Times—Articles offer close-up looks at amazing people of the Bible

• Live It!—Hands-on activities help you apply biblical truths to your life

• Twenty polar-themed pages focus on topics such as how to know you are a Christian, famous people of the Bible, highlights of the life of Jesus, and how to pray.

• Book introductions feature arctic art and important information about each book of the Bible

• Dictionary/concordance for looking up tricky words

• Color map section to help locate places in the Bible

• Complete text of the New International Version (NIV) of the Bible

• Thrilling new glacial cover on metallic paper

We all know that I'm not exactly the target demographic for this Bible, so I had my 8-year-old cousin use it during church a few weeks ago. She loved it!

This Bible is eye-catching, and it beckons children to engage with God's Word. Colorful sections like "Live It!" and "Did You Know?" are interspersed throughout the text, and there are also some full-color sections made out of thicker paper that are basically engaging reference pages. I'm a map lover, and I remember pouring over the maps in my circa 1990 Bible. The maps in this Polar Exploration Edition are probably very similar to the maps I used in the 90's, but there's also a map index here that points out notable locations and gives a bit of context as to why they're important.

I have had so much fun going through this Bible! My only regret is that I don't have three copies so I could give one to each of my three cousin-nieces. (They're my first cousins once removed or something like that, but really they're the nieces I don't have.) But I do have a copy to give away to one of you! It's a short giveaway, as the sponsor needs the winner's name ASAP in order to have the Bible delivered before Christmas, so be sure to enter right away!

    1. I have one that's gone completely unjournaled in, too :-)

  2. I like my NLT Version I have. Thank you
