Book Review: Shiny Sequin Bible



Holy Bible: Shiny Sequin Bible, International Children’s Bible translation
I am excited to present to you my review of this adorable, “girly girl” Bible! Tommy Nelson Publishers have released a copy of God’s Holy Word wrapped in sparkles and sequins that will make any girl proud to carry and read her Bible! The colors of the Bible are pink, green, purple, fuschia, and blue.

This Bible is easy to use and easy to read. The translation is meant for younger readers, but still keeps to the truth of the inerrant Word of God. The cover has a nice fabric-like layer on top of the paperback covering that makes it more durable than most paperbacks. There is a small Bible Dictionary towards the back that is perfect for the young ladies that are learning new concepts in God’s Word. The dictionary will aid in correcting any confusion and misunderstanding related to some biblical terms. Also, I find that the font size is perfect in this Bible - neither too large nor too small. Also, four color maps are in the back of the Bible. I particularly like the Memory Verse section towards the back that has listed many life application verses. I perceive the selected verses to be presented on a middle school level.

One issue I do not like about this Bible is that there are not individual chapter headings, but instead there are headings at the top of each page. I particularly noticed this on pages that have multiple chapters, such as the Psalms. Other standard versions usually give chapter headings, which highlights that chapter’s particular subject or theme. This can be quite helpful for the serious student of the Word. Other than that one issue, this is a really great Bible!

I highly recommend this Bible for any middle school age young lady. She will learn to treasure God’s Word in her heart while carrying possibly the most fashionable Bible in the whole church!

I noticed that www.christianbook.com has this Bible on sale!

Great job Jill! :) This is so cute and I like the way you presented it. I was wondering how you would "review" a Bible but this was great!
