 The Rainbow Study Bible

Anyone familiar with this study Bible? My wife and I are considering getting our two older sons (ages 9 and 10) each one of these for Easter. (KJV of course!) I kinda like the idea of a color schemed Bible for that age to help them understand and read the Bible better on their own. Since we homeschool, the Bible is part of everyday school work for them anyway...

Does anyone have one, and if so... what do you think of it? Or does anyone have any other suggestions for a study Bible for that age?

Please dont suggest "Refuel" (the Bible "magazine")... That will set me off... LOL!

I priced some Bibles yesterday... yeow! I told the girl working at the store "Gee... Bibles are big business, huh?" ... she said "Yea, it's wonderful to have so many different versions to choose from!" .... I left it alone. :-?

There are other threads dealing with this issue... we'll leave it alone on this thread.

It's the Bible formatted as a young men's magazine... kinda like a cross between Rolling Stone and GQ. I'll start a tread about it shortly... it's worldy compromise at it's worst.

I'm not looking for my kids to be entertained, but I think I understand what you mean. I'm looking for a format that will help them learn... and yes, enjoy the Bible.

 Re:

Never heard of it, but make sure you keep me posted if you get it. I've a profound respect for your opinion, as you know, and while I'm not in the market for my daughter to study the Bible like that anytime soon...

and pretty firmly believe we'll all be flying out of here before she reaches that age...

if you use it and it rings your bells, I'll want to know so I can pick up a copy. :-)

 Re: The Rainbow Study Bible

I'm a little hesitant with anything called "the rainbow" study Bible. Oh well.

 Re:

Heck, why not call it enjoyment? I love the stories through Samuel and Kings, and there was a good reason for the Gospel to be tagged "the greatest story ever told."

"Your testimonies also are my delight; They are my counselors." Ps. 119:24

Aside from that, the rainbow study bible kinda drove me bonkers - distracted me a bit from what I was trying to work with. But thats just one short-lived experience.

 Re: the girl behind the counter has the right heartspace

I noticed the quote about bibles being big business, I actually posted something on one the KJV only thread that is going right now. The Rainbow bible has been around for years, it has recently got an shot in the arm through the Tv. All in all it is o.k, but i;ll have to agree that it ispretty confusing at times. insted of reading a scripture and asking the Holy Spirit to show you the meaning, you pull out your little card to check what categorey it falls under. I actually had a rainbow bible stolen from our store.. . .hope they look for the gray boxes and how to fix it. . .at any rate I think its ok
