With Christmas shopping it can be hard to know what to get your friends and family, especially if you’re looking for something that gives significant, lasting value.
If you think about it, a Bible is one of the most personal and valuable gifts you can give. Several of us at Crossway are still using Bibles that we were given years ago!
Consider giving the gift of God’s Word for Christmas. Here are 5 specialty Bibles that might bless someone in your family:
This Bible for 5-9 year-olds features the full ESV text along with 120 illustrations of major Bible stories. Accompanying each illustration is a retelling of the Bible story in simpler language, reflection questions, memory verses, and other features. It’s a colorful Bible that helps kids work through the entire Bible in a way they can understand. The Seek and Find Bible is available in three editions and is priced at either $28 (hardcover) or $35 (TruTones).
The ESV Grow! Bible is for kids ages 8–12. It also includes the full Bible text alongside numerous features like “W Questions”, “Cross Connections”, and “4U” applications. This colorful and engaging Bible is available in three editions, priced at $28 for the hardcover and $35 for the TruTones.
Adapted from the original ESV Study Bible, the Student Study Bible includes condensed study notes, character profiles, special facts, articles, and more. It was designed for students, but features a depth of content and simple design applicable to all ages. Each copy of the Student Study Bible comes with free access to an online version hosted at ESVBible.org. It’s available in three print editions – $38 for the hardcover and $55 for the two TruTone editions.
The ESV Study Bible is one of the most comprehensive single-volume Bible resources out there. It’s a high-quality, lasting resource that you can “grow into” for many years. Like the ESV Student Study Bible, each print edition includes access to the online version at ESVBible.org. With twenty-seven editions and three sizes to choose from, there’s an ESV Study Bible for every walk of life. Prices range from $45 for the personal size hardcover to $240 for the premium calfskin leather editions.
This Bible invites participation from the reader in a different way. Each page features ruled lines in the 2″-wide margins, perfect for those who like to make notes in their Bible. Five editions are priced between $35 (moleskine cover) and $130 (cowhide leather).
