Zondervan NIV Sequin Bible
Zondervan provided me with a free copy of this book for reviewing purposed. All opinions are my own. No other compensation was received.
NIV Sequin Bible
From Zondervan's Website:
What girl doesn’t like a little sparkle and shine? With a trendy design embellished with sequins and sparkle, the Sequin Bible helps you express your style wherever you go---home, church, school, and everywhere in between!
Bestselling New International Version (NIV)
Words of Christ in red
Handy size less than one inch thick
This is a beautiful Bible. All sparkly and shiny. The cover says it is a flex cover and looks like a stiffened fabric with glitter all over it. I know it is hard to see in the pictures, but it does sparkle. I imagine that the glitter will wear off over time, but it is a bling girl's Bible. There is also a sequin flower on the cover that really makes this Bible stand out. It really is beautiful. Both my daughter and I LOVE the look of this Bible.
Inside, this is DEFINITELY a younger person's Bible...smaller print, no notes, no maps...Just the word. There is definitely a time and a place for that, but I really enjoy the little extras, so I may be a little unduly biased there. The words of Jesus are in red, which some people do enjoy...I don't have an opinion on that one way or the other. I am also used to a larger Bible, so it is hard to turn 5 pages and to have passed by 6 books of the Bible...I am exaggerating a bit, but you know what I mean...a smaller Bible is just harder for me to work worth...personal preference.
The gift box the Bible came in makes it the perfect Bible to give as a gift. It says on the box that it lays flat...I was not able to get this Bible to lay flat. I did not like that at all.
The Sequin Bible is not for me, but it would be PERFECT for a young lady...one who loves some bling, maybe between a younger Bible and a study Bible. It would make a beautiful gift.
