Lawrence O. Richards wrote over 200 Christian books, including commentaries on every book of the Bible, features for the bestselling Adventure Bible(R), and features for the Teen Study Bible, which he wrote with his wife, Sue.
The Adventure Bible NIV and Adventure Bible for Early Readers NIrV are complete Bibles from Zonderkidz, with numerous educational features and illustrations for children. Both books offer the full text of the Bible (New International Version) along with teaching sidebars such as: "Words to Treasure", "Did You Know?", "Life in Bible Times", "People in Bible Times", and "Live It!". A Subject Index, Dictionary/Concordance, and Maps offer added useful tools. The Adventure Bible NIV is suggested for 9-12 year olds. Indented thumb tabs and a "How to Use This Bible" introduction will help young readers get started on their exploration of God's word. The Adventure Bible for Early Readers NIrV is the New International Reader's Version with slight modifications in the reading level to accommodate the intended audience of 6-10 year olds. These handsome hardcover books are brightly illustrated with eye-catching drawings and graphics, and there are so many features to keep children engaged that either book is likely to be thoroughly perused and revisited. However, the pages are quite thin and will require careful handling by eager fingers. As with any full Bible, in the context of Scripture there is frank mention of drunkenness, nudity, and sex that parents may not expect to see in a children's edition, particularly the NIrV.--Christian Library Journal
