Dad's Bible: The Father's Plan

Wednesday, June 30, 2010


I chose to review the Dad's Bible: The Father's Plan, because Hubby has wanted a new bible, and this one looked like it would meet all his requirements.  It is New Century Version (NCV) and has two main areas of special content: Walking in Authority and Insights.

Insights takes specific verses and breaks them down as to how they relate to fathers and men in general.  Walking in Authority is more topical, but still relates to fathers and how God expects them to raise children.  The extra content extends to Godly Characteristics that God desires from fathers and an excellent section in the back of the Bible called "Questions and Answers".

The "Questions and Answers" takes questions that are common from children and gives fathers a handy place to get those answers.  (Example questions: "What is an 'Idol'?" and "Is it wrong to be rich?")

I found the Bible easy to use, durable with it's hardback cover - though I would have preferred a soft leather cover for looks (my Husband won't care one way or the other)!  My only disappointment was that there is very little room to make your own notes in the margins of the Bible.  I would recommended it as a gift, but a father who likes to write in his Bible, might not enjoy this one.

I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
