NIV Adventure Bible Book of Devotions Review

NIV Adventure Bible Book of Devotions: 365 Days of Adventure   -     By: Robin Schmitt
I was contacted by DJC Communications to review a Zondervan NIV Adventure Bible Book of Devotions by Robin Schmitt.  This came with the Rock Solid Faith Study Bible and I did like this albeit it was not a Catholic bible.  I also appreciated this book of devotions.  Each day, there is scripture verse and a plausible scenario where one can choose either to listen to the Word of God, or choose to follow modern culture.  At the bottom of each page, there is either a section stating "Words to Treasure" or "People in Bible Times" or "Life in Bible Times" or "Live It".  Each section draws the reader into a better understanding of how to live out the scripture verse.  As a typical devotional works, there is one devotion per day for the entire year.  

What I like about it is that it is faith in action.  Teens and especially boys, as we all know, are bombarded with commercialization and the secular belief system.  Which goes against the Word of God and this creates confusion for our young teens.  As parents we need to help them grow in their faith and have a solid foundation so when they encounter peer pressure, God's word has been instilled in their hearts. And when they fall, they know we have a forgiving God and try not to do that again.  

A daily devotional geared towards this age group is ideal for preparing our young to face the world.  This book is geared towards boys and I think that's important because even though they share common struggles with their counterpart, they also have unique challenges all unto their own.  That does not mean that every scenario in the book involves boys, but the overall appearance will appeal to boys. This devotional book belongs to my son now and he will reap the rewards from studying scripture in this format.

I received a complimentary copy of NIV Adventure Bible Book of Devotions for my honest review. No monetary compensation was given for my honest review.

Advent Blessings,
