Book Review: NLT Inspire Bible for Girls

About the Book:

The #1–selling Inspire Bible is a beautiful single-column, wide-margin New Living Translation Bible for coloring and creative journaling that has become a treasured legacy Bible for many. Young girls have enjoyed coloring and creative art-journaling in the Inspire Bible, and now there is an edition just for them!

The new Inspire Bible for Girls is designed to draw girls ages 8 and up deeper into God’s Word and to inspire creativity and connection with God! In addition to the much-loved features of Inspire, the Inspire Bible for Girls includes over 300 devotionals written by bestselling author Carolyn Larsen plus book introductions, journaling prompts, and interesting Bible facts to enhance girls’ coloring and creative journaling journey through the Bible.

Over 500 beautiful full and partial-page Scripture line-art illustrations to color are attractively displayed throughout the Bible. There are lots of pages with open space for creativity in the lightly-ruled, two-inch-wide margins. Girls can leave traces of their faith throughout their Bible for a unique treasure that will truly inspire!

The 8.65-point font is larger and more readable than other coloring Bibles, and the high-quality white Bible paper makes it a great choice for creatively responding to God’s Word right on the pages of the Bible. Instill the joy and value of reading the Bible in young girls’ hearts so they can learn to connect with God and discover valuable truths from Scripture—and ultimately live it out in their lives!

My Thoughts:

When they are a bit older, I think my daughters will love the NLT Inspire Bible for Girls from Carolyn Larsen and Tyndale Publishers. The beautiful cover shimmers and is so girly. I would not consider this a hardcover Bible as it’s cover is more like a sturdy cardstock. However, the provided sleeve adds protection and I expect it to hold it up nicely as long as the sleeve is used.

The Inspire Bible for Girls boasts over 500 illustrations. Many of those are phrases or complete verses taken directly from the Scripture passages on that page. Some of the phrases are accompanied by an additional object (flowers, frame, animals, etc.) to color. I especially liked the divider pages between the books of the Bible. These divider pages offered lots of coloring opportunity while introducing some of the key verses in the upcoming book. Very pretty.

In addition to illustrations for coloring, the Inspire Bible for Girls includes lined pages for taking notes, journaling prompts, and short devotional thoughts. I did not read all of the devotionals, but what I did read seemed appropriate for an older child or teen. It’s written with a traditional, evangelical perspective and often asks questions to prompt self-examination before offering a prepared prayer.
