The Frost Bible

Clearly, the publisher is trying to milk the hysteria surrounding the Frozen movie.  It's a Bible, folks.  No witches with super-frosty magical powers here!  I haven't run across Elsa and her little snowman friend, or anything even vaguely wintry in this book.  In fact, I don't think it snowed anywhere in the Bible at all.  Lemme know if you find a passage; that would be useful to look at during Christmas time because why not?

So that aside, it is a beautiful Bible for all the scripturally unrelated hype.  And if you have a little girl who likes snowflakes and wintry stuff and might like a Bible for Christmas?  This is your book, right here.

It's the International Children's Bible, a full 1312 pages and a hardcover book at that.  Hefty.  The suggested age range is from seven to ten, but I find it would be suitable for anyone who can read well, perhaps third grade and up.

I think calling it a "children's Bible" is not really a fair description.  It's true that some passages are explained or simplified, and there is a useful timeline included, but it truly is a Bible worthy of study and contemplation.  I found a little about this translation here if you are interested in reading more about it.

Aside from some glossy inserts instructing children how to pray and so forth, it's just an ordinary medium-sized Bible.  It comes with a cute little tote as well.  If you go to church with your Bible all the time, you know the Bible cover can cost as much as the Bible itself!  This tote is a handy (and free, really, since it comes with the book) solution to that problem. 

It comes wrapped up like this.
Perfect for toting to church!
