Book Review :: God's Treasure Holy Bible (NIrV)

The God's Treasure Holy Bible (NIrV) has a printed hard cover with foiled accents and an attached ribbon bookmark. (There are other cover options available, but for this review I looked at the hardcover version.)
The God's Treasure Holy Bible (NIrV) is the New International Reader's Version (NIrV) version of the Bible. The NIrV is a simplified version of the NIV, written at approximately a 3rd grade reading level. The NIrV is composed of smaller, easy-to-understand words in shorter sentences than the traditional NIV.

The God's Treasure Holy Bible (NIrV) has all black text (including the words of Christ) and brown headings and chapter numbers. The text is laid out in two columns. The text is standard size - not large, but not extra small. There are basic footnotes in the God's Treasure Holy Bible (NIrV) as well as introductions for each book of the Bible. The introductions include a quick overview of who/what will be encountered in the book, important stories, and a list of "Treasure Verses" (which are highlighted with a light brown background in the Bible text). At the back are a "Treasure Verse Index", three lined pages for notes, and 7 full-color maps like you might find at the back of many Bibles.

There are some full-color page inserts that are placed throughout the God's Treasure Holy Bible (NIrV). (The full-color pages are a bit thicker than the text pages.) There are a total of 6 full-color inserts, with a front and back side to each. Each of the inserts are illustrated and have a summarized story version of popular Bible events.

Here are the titles of each of the inserts:
- This Bible Is Given To: (presentation page)
- How To Use This Bible
- God Creates The World
- The Ten Commandments
- Mapping The Bible (two-sided)
- The Riches of God's Word
- Learn To Pray
- Meet Jesus
- Love
- Fruit Of The Spirit
- ABCs Of Becoming A Christian

The God's Treasure Holy Bible (NIrV) has the basics you need, with some nice extras. 
FTC Declaration: The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book or advanced reading copy through their book review bloggers program. This does not change the fact that I will give my honest opinion in my reviews.
