With the holiday season officially here, you may be finally putting together that shopping list for your loved ones. Perhaps you already have the bulk of your shopping complete, but are looking for a few more ideas. I always say a Bible makes a wonderful gift for just about anyone. I mean what's better than gifting the Word of God to those you care about? Am I right? If you're looking for ideas on which one to get, I've previously shared plenty of great picks right here on my blog. I'm also adding adding the Airship Genesis Kids Study Bible to my list. This one was created especially for children in the six to ten age range, and let me tell you it's a really neat Bible!
ABOUT THE BIBLE:
The Airship Genesis Kids Study Bible is an exciting adventure through God’s Word in the trustworthy New King James Version®. Designed for children ages 7–11, the Airship Genesis Kids Study Bible brings Bible stories to life and helps kids discover vital truths from Scripture, finding real-life applications for children living in today’s world. Study features for the Airship Genesis Kids Study Bible are based on the characteristics of the Airship Genesis: Legendary Bible Adventure brand from Dr. David Jeremiah and the Turning Point for Kids ministry.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
David Jeremiah is the founder of Turning Point, an international ministry committed to providing Christians with sound Bible teaching through radio and television, the Internet, live events, and resource materials and books. He is the author of more than fifty books including Captured by Grace, Angels—Who They Are and How They Help, What in the World Is Going On?, and Agents of the Apocalypse. David serves as the senior pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church in San Diego, California, where he resides with his wife, Donna. They have four grown children and twelve grandchildren.
When I originally came across this Bible, I honestly had no idea what Airship Genesis was. Before receiving it, we decided to give ourselves a sneak peek at what it was all about by visiting their website. We learned all about the Genesis Exploration Squad, which is a fictional set of cartoon characters. The team is comprised of five young explorers, and two additional members who make it their mission to learn all about the Bible and it's history. To do this, they embark on special journeys in the the Airship Genesis, which also serves as a sort of time machine that can take them back into Biblical history. In the Airship Genesis Kids Study Bible, kids can join the Genesis Exploration Squad and become a little adventurer themselves.
In addition to the accurate, easy to read New King James translation, there are tons of extra features included in this Bible that really make it unique. Some of these include:
- A broken down introduction to what the Bible is all about.
- Introductions to each of the seven team members in the Genesis Exploration Squad.
- Sixty-Six Mission Overviews to start off each book of the Bible. These provide an introduction, the main theme and purpose, as well who wrote it and when.
- One Hundred Rupert Reports that offer interesting facts about some of the people, places, and things that are written in the books of the Bible.
- Seventy-five Power Force sections that offer Biblical truths and Christian essentials for children to learn and apply to their own lives.
- Fifty areas that highlight main heroes that made an impact in the Bible.
- One hundred Bible Blasts that highlight important scripture verses throughout that can also be memorized.
- Gorgeous full-color illustrations depicting some of the characters and stories throughout the Bible.
- Thirteen color maps to help learn about the lands during those times.
- An extensive concordance for easy referencing.
- Sixty Logos Discovery articles that bring children on an adventure to discover what they are reading in the Bible, and additional ways to link other stories and scripture throughout.
In addition to the features included in the actual Bible, readers can visit the Airship Genesis website for tons of great extras. While visiting, you'll find special monthly audio episodes of the Genesis Exploration Squad's special Bible missions. On each mission page, children can also take part in all kind of hands-on activities, and even download mission guides. Inside the Bible, is a special password that also allow kids to access additional (top secret mission) audio Bible adventures.
This is such a great Bible–the characters and the overall theme of embarking on special missions to explore the stories throughout Biblical history is really neat. Just make a visit to their website and you'll see exactly what I mean. The extras that can be found online are a fun bonus and will definitely benefit our Bible study sessions. I hope that this isn't the only time we hear about the Genesis Exploration Squad. Perhaps they'll come out with more books based on Bible story missions, and maybe even a show or movies series (fingers crossed).
The Airship Genesis Kids Study Bible is definitely a winner and would make an excellent gift! It not only offers children a fun way to learn about the Bible and God's word, but it also serves as a wonderful guide on character building and values.
