Review of Dad's Bible

I was given this book to review by booksneeze and I really wasn't sure how I was going to be able to review a bible.  Not that all bibles are the same, but, well, they are at least mostly the same.  The versions differ, the commentary or notes inside differ, the covers differ, but the message is essential the same. I found this bible to be beautiful though. It is one that I am proud to give my husband.  Below is my review of it.

This bible is an incredible bible for fathers! The New Century Version isn't one I'm familiar with, but it is easy to read, and similar to the NIV in many ways. This bible has many notes, some called character notes, some insights, as well as bios on dads in the bible. There is also a set of notes called Walking in Authority. In the beginning of every chapter there is a small section about the chapter, which I find nice for reference. The pages are thin, but not too thin, and they are beautiful, I must say. They have a brownish tint around the edges, as if they are a scroll. It has a beautiful cover and binding. I appreciate that it has a topical index and a small space for taking notes in the back. I just can't wait to give it to my husband for father's day!
