As a blogger, I may be compensated in some way (either pay, product, or experience) for sharing the post below All opinions are my own. ~Heidi
We have this philosophy in our house – YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MANY BIBLES! Sometimes I feel almost guilty that we have so many Bibles when I know that there are many people in the world who don’t have access to a Bible. But, then I remind myself that we DO have access to them, and we might as well enjoy them, appreciate them, and learn from them as much as possible. So, when I was given the recent opportunity to select some books to review from Zondervan as part of the Z Blog Squad, I picked some new Bibles for my kids. I’m going to share about one today, and another one tomorrow (so be sure to check back).

Heidi Says . . .
I have an 8-year old son who is VERY INTO Super Heroes. I chose this Bible because I thought it would have appeal for him; however, I have to confess that my expectations for this Bible were not very high. I expected it to be cheesy.
Boy, was I wrong!
This Bible is awesome!
When it arrived at our house, Ian immediately grabbed it up and took off with it. I waited until he was sidetracked with something else and took my turn. I was pleasantly surprised and am so glad that I made this choice!
Right in the beginning, in the “How To Use This Bible” section, I love the first few words:
Ordinary people in the Bible were zapped by God and became SUPER HEROES!!
Are you ready? Do you want to be a super hero for God?
You can, you know.
Here are some of the features of this Bible that I just love:
Book Introductions – at the beginning of each book of the Bible, there is a brief introduction to the book and what’s it about. It also lists all the heroes (and the “not!” heroes) that are found in the book, along with the page #.
Hero Profiles – there are over 200 of these throughout the Bible. Here’s a sample of one of them:
See the symbols listed along the left side, near the top? You simply turn to your decoder chart on the back of the Bible to find out what they mean. In the case of Joseph, you see that they mean Forgiving, Self-Controlled, and Trusted. For the NOT super heroes, there is a code of DIShonor!
Power Surges – in addition to the hero profiles, you will also see some examples of the power surges in the above picture. Each of these highlights one of the codes of honor and includes an accompanying Bible verse to back it up.
Full Page Character Traits – there is a full page focusing on each of the hero traits also.
In addition to these great features, there are also 40 full-color 3D images that are best viewed with the included 3D glasses, an index, a dictionary, and a Super Heroes Bible Quiz.
I am very impressed with this Bible and can see my son getting many years of use out of it. It would make a great gift for any young Super Hero fan in your life!
