The Dad’s Bible (New Century Version) by Thomas Nelson Publishers is good for fathers, and fathers-to-be, as it provides many practical notes and commentaries to be applied in bringing up children to fear the Lord. It even provides a Q & A section at the back, providing answers to common questions like “can scientists prove that creation isn’t true?”. This Bible also provides a topical index, and a series of quotes from the Bible on things like contentment, discouragement…..
The Dad’s Bible is rather easy to use and read. Although, sometimes it can be a little confusing, as the commentaries mingle with the main text, without much contrast in terms of text color or having a border. Maybe it’s because I’m not used to a Bible with commentaries, but I get the impression of this Bible being a little too cramped. The margins are too narrow for my liking.
This Bible is very durable, with a hard cover. It is also well-bound, with thin but tough paper. Though, it’s not advisable to carry this Bible around, as it is heavy.
The study tools provides familiar scenes, whether at home or at work, illustrating the truths found in the Bible, vividly. They are quite helpful if you want to use the truths found in the Word in everyday life. But, the study tools doesn’t explain the customs and the background of the scriptures. So, this Bible shouldn’t be used alone.
I would certainly recommend the Dad’s Bible to other people, especially fathers-to-be.
