GlipIt Bible – Book Review
Today I’ve been asked to review what easily qualifies as the most unusual Bible I’ve reviewed to date. That Bible is the new glipit Bible NLT from Tyndale House Publishers – a 4 x 6 Bible specifically designed to help 8 to 12 year old children express their faith their way.
“Glipit” stands for God’s Love Is Perfect, Patient and Personal!
What makes this Bible so unique is not its contents, but its cover. The glipit Bible comes in your choice of two silicone cover color palettes – the primary-based blue cover or the pretty pastel-based purple palette – and an additional package of 120 complementary colored pieces that pop into place over the raised bumps on the silicone cover, allowing your child to design a custom cover for their Bible – and to change it at will.
A few of the pieces even glow in the dark!
As colorful as this Bible is on the outside – inside, the glipit Bible is rather austere. There are no illustrations – no color – just a sea of very tiny print. There are no study aids of any type. The only resource material you’ll find is at the beginning of the book, in the Where Can I Find It section and the Historical Journey Through The Bible and You Can Know The Lord Personally articles.
Size-wise, the glipit Bible would make a great travel Bible – if you like the New Living Translation and have good eyesight – as it is highly portable and highly durable.
However, as a Children’s Bible for 8 to 12 year olds, the primary selling point of the glipit Bible is its unique cover. I wish its contents were just as inviting.
At best, I’d give this Bible 3 stars.
