Wow! I love the ESV translation, and that is what we use at home. I personally think that video is creepy! The music is weird. Perhaps something a little happier? I love Jesus, I love this website… I just think the movie was creepy.

I found that video to be entirely unhelpful. I would have liked to have seen images of the product. I have been very happy with the seek and find bible, but I am not happy with the ESV children’s bible (red cover) at all. My children found the poor quality illustrations scary.
Ann, thank you for your comments. We’re well aware the video didn’t contain product shots, etc. It was intended to be a trailer for the Grow! Bible. You can check out a sampler of the Bible containing the entire book of Genesis on its product page – http://www.crossway.org/grow – Regarding your comments on the Children’s Bible: it’s an older edition and as you can see we’re working on providing other age-appropriate editions parents can choose from.

I found it to be cool considering the movies and books kids are reading these days…Narnia, Tolkien, Potter, Golden Compass etc…
I took love the seek and find and I am hoping this new bible will be a great addition to our home library.
I found the illustrations in the red cover version to be quite good, but was very disappointed that it contained images of Christ. What about the Grow Bible? Are there images of Christ? Since we consider that to be a violation of the second commandment, I would like to know before I purchase this edition for my daughter.
