Book Review: Dad's Bible

Dad's Bible: The Father's PlanI signed up to receive this Bible over a year ago when my wife and I were still expecting our first child. I was excited to review a "Dad's Bible" because I was soon to be a Dad for the first time. Unfortunately it didn't live up to my expectations.

I really wanted to like this Bible. However, its taken over a year for me to review this Bible for a reason. Frankly it was just not a Devotional Bible that I could use on a regular basis.

This Bible uses the New Century Version (NCV). I had never used the NCV much prior to obtaining this Bible and frankly I'm not impressed. The NCV is a revision of the International Children's Bible and the language seems simplistic and choppy to me. The devotionals and notes added throughout the Dad's Bible were decent but weren't something I found all that helpful. I did like the overall design of the pages, but I'm not fond of hardback Bible's

Here's the bottom line: the Dad's Bible is a novelty/gift Bible that will be given as gifts to thousands of dad's on Father's Day but frankly it's probably not a Bible that will get used by many of those father's on a regular basis. So, if you're looking for something other than a tie to give go ahead and buy it. If you want one yourself you'll soon find numbers of these showing up at your local thrift store.
