NIV FAST FACTS BIBLE: Fascinating Trivia from the Most Read Book in History

Fast Facts Bible-NIV by Zondervan Publishing
Wanda's Thoughts:  Disappointing – The Fast Facts Bible is plain and simple and there was absolutely nothing to draw me in.  Perhaps it would be good for YA Sunday school class or small group that is studying  certain books of the Bible, and then to be given the trivia questions to see how much they have retained.  But I must say, I didn’t find the trivia questions to be that interesting and useful.

It was advertised as being designed to help you get to know God’s word.  It is a basic Bible with no concordance or any extras normally found in a good Bible.  In my opinion, so much more could be learned with a Life Application Bible that has annotations for hard to understand verses. 

I sat on this review for a few weeks hoping to come up with some good reasons for buying this book, but, unfortunately, I just can’t recommend it.  It has no depth and I don’t feel it’s a great way to enhance your scripture reading or learning God’s word.  2 Stars. 

I received a complimentary copy of this Bible from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for and honest review.
