Review: KJV Homeschool Mom’s Bible

_240_360_Book.921.coverAs you can tell by the picture, the KJV Homeschool Mom’s Bible is a cute idea.  Though it looks 3D,  it is actually a scrapbook type picture on the front of this hardcover KJV Bible (which can also be purchased in the NIV, if that is your preference).  The pages are nice (you know the sort of pages you typically find in a Bible) so that it will lay flat if you open it up (except for the first few pages which you would probably have to crease them a bit first).

 

As with many of these special individualized Bibles, it has a cute cover and some pertinent devotions interspersed throughout the text of the Bible.  Janet Tatman, a homeschool mom who has lots of personal experience, has written 365 devotions specifically targeting issues pertinent to a homeschool mom.  The devotions are quick (only a page long), usually involve an illustration from Janet’s own homeschooling memories, include a verse of Scripture, and conclude with a prayer.  There is a subject listing in the back so that you can find devotions about something in particular or you can just read the devotion for that day.   Since the devotions are evenly dispersed in the Bible, you could very easily read the portion of the Bible up to the devotion for the day, and read the Bible through in a year.

 

As long as you are not expecting too much from this, you will probably find it to be a sweet gift for a homeschool mom in your life. The price listed on the back seemed a bit high considering that it is just the KJV with 365 short devotions added to it.  So that is really my main issue with it.  As with any devotional, you will probably love some entries and totally disagree with others.  If you lack a support structure of other homeschoolers, you may just simply enjoy the encouragement of a fellow homeschooler.

 

4 out of 5 stars

I received a free copy of this Bible from Zondervan in exchange for a fair and honest review.

    I may have enjoyed this when I was homeschooling. During that stage of life there’s little time for devotions/time with God, so it would have been helpful. The cover would have caught my eye . . . . . I’m in to “cutesie” things like that :-) Thanks for sharing!!
