I got the new ESV Seek and Find Bible in the mail today and was so immediately impressed that I had to relay the good news as soon as I could. It is literally like a mini study bible for kids (with the exception that there are not notes for every passage of Scripture).

It is packed with resources that I will mention in a moment, but the thing that immediately stood out to me was the content of the Bible stories that are included. The way it works is the full text of the ESV is contained in the Bible. As selected passages occur in the Bible there are full page illustrations of a scene of that story and a 2 page story or summary of the Biblical passage. These stories are basically re-tellings of the passage in a way that may be easier for children to grasp. This is certainly nice, but you may be saying that there is nothing new as far as that is concerned. Well, there's more. And this is the most important part. The stories that I have read so far are faithful to the text, helpful in explaining the text, and amazing in connecting the story to 1. the gospel of Jesus and 2. how it affects us. After the stories are 3 key questions that really are helpful and thoughtful questions that point us to the meaning of the text and it's application to us. The back of the dust jacket says it is for children ages 5 to 9, but there is no age group that won't benefit from the concise, clear, and theologically compelling Bible stories contained in this book.

On Crossway's website they include a sample PDF of the entire book of Ruth that includes one of their illustrations and Bible stories.

As a Children's Pastor, I will carry a kid's Bible to church occasionally so I can give parents my opinion on a particular version. I used the older version of the children's ESV for a while but was so excited when I saw this Seek and Find version. I instantly fell in love with the illustrations because they are kid friendly but realistic. The character profiles are a great idea because so many times a child will hear someone's name mentioned but forget which story that person belongs to and the character profiles have pictures and a brief reminder of who they are. There is also an overview before each book of the Bible that gives all the basic info for that book. Another favorite feature is the "seek & find" at the end of Bible stories, where they ask 3 key questions to encourage kids to think about the personal application of the verses. I know parents & kids will both love this Bible!

I was really excited to see this new Bible come out from Crossway called ESV Seek and Find Bible. According to Crossway, the Bible is geared towards the 5-9 year-old age bracket. I will be teaching the 5-6 year-olds at our church so this resource immediately caught my attention, especially given my love for the ESV. I spent a few weeks taking it to our worship gatherings, reading it with my son (age 3) and looking it over. Here's what I found:

Formatting: The formatting is a touch difficult to navigate. There are a lot of different features packed into each and every page, so don't think you are going to win a "Sword Drill" any time soon. However, on the flip side, that's not the point of this Bible. It is meant to provide some highlights in the stories while also picking popular stories and re-telling them so that a child will be able to process the story easier. I think it is brilliant. It provides the main ESV text while also `breaking it down' for children. The color pages are beautifully crafted and the text very accessible/readable. The craftsmanship is something Crossway always does well and this Bible is no different.

Highlights: It's not a smaller Bible so it certainly `feels' like a `real' Bible for children. Inside is the ESV text with more than 130 paintings; abridged Bible stories; "Seek and Find" sections (clues where to find the text, key Bible verses, three questions that are age appropriate, related passages, and icons that help navigate the text); Book introductions that are concise yet very informative; Character profiles; Places, Structures and Objects (color illustrations); Maps; and an easy-to-use Dictionary/Concordance. These features are what makes this Bible unique.

When is a child ready for a "real" Bible instead of a Bible storybook? I think each family needs to make this decision individually, and keep in mind each child's unique needs.

We have decided that in a few weeks when our daughter turns six, she will have her very own, "real" Bible. She can read fluently enough, which means that it won't just be for show, and we'll be teaching her to navigate through the Bible, too. She already understands what a Bible reference is (such as John 3:16).

Our church has recently adapted to using the English Standard Version (ESV) of the Bible which led us to look into ESV children's Bibles; we chose the ESV Seek and Find Bible for our daughter. It is a more difficult reading level than the NIV or NIrV, but it still seems the best choice for our family, at this time, due to concerns with the 2011 version of the NIV.

My favorite feature of the ESV Seek and Find Bible is the 130 Bible stories that are spread throughout the Bible. This allows a child to read in the story form and then to read the actual text as well. Each story begins with a realistically illustrated, full-page painting and is followed by a Seek and Find section. Using icons and words, it helps the child to explore the real text further. This informs the child where to find the story in the actual Bible text. It gives a key Bible verse (often found in a different book of the Bible). Three key questions are asked to help the child understand the key points and application. Last, suggested related Bible readings are provided.

Some other features to consider are book introductions, which includes a timeline.
Icons throughout to help a child "seek and find" key verses, related verses, and stories with page numbers.
