Faith Builders Bible: A Children's Bible for Brick-Building Fans (a Schoolhouse Crew Review)

Although my children are not as wildly crazy about building with Legos as some of their friends have been, they do enjoy putting together a set or coming up with a unique building creation. So when I saw the Faith Builders Bible from Zonderkidz, I was pretty sure that this was a Bible that would be very popular with them.

We received for review a hardback copy of the Faith Builders Bible from Zonderkidz. This is a NIrV translation (New International Readers Version).

The Faith Builders Bible is unique because it has colored illustration pages that use the popular plastic building bricks recreating scenes from the Bible. The bright colors, building bricks, readable font, and other special features make this a great Bible for kids. Rachel, my 10 year old youngest, was thrilled when I told her that this could be her own personal Bible. Although we have quite a few Bibles floating around, she didn’t really have one she considered hers. She’s been using this one since it came in the mail.

Special Features of the Faith Builders Bible

  • The New International Readers Version is an especially good version for young readers or older children and adults who aren’t strong readers. The words are taken primarily from the NIV Bible, but sometimes words are shortened or a more simple word is chosen to make things easy to read and understand.
  • The font is a good size for kids. (Sometimes I thought it could have been a little bit bigger, but I’m old with old eyes.) Rachel seemed to be able to read it easily, and it is a little bigger than the font in some of our Bibles, making it less intimidating when a young reader picks it up and looks at all of the words on a page.

  • In the beginning of the Bible there is a great chart of all of the books of the Bible in their divisions drawn on building bricks. This is the only drawn picture that I found. All of the other illustrations are actually built and photographed. But I thought the chart was a great overview to help kids understand how the books of the Bible fit together.
  • Also in the beginning is a page with a few simple structures and some key Bible verses. Kids are challenged “Can you build…?”
  • Throughout the Bible are the great colorful illustrations of Bible scenes built out of plastic bricks. Each of these illustrations has a “Building Block Verse” that explains the scene.

  • At the end of the Bible, there is a dictionary to go along with the NIrV as well as a listing of well-known Bible stories with their location in the Bible.

Our Response

Rachel loves it. It’s bright and colorful and appealing, and – the best part for her- she has her own Bible. The illustrations are interesting to her, and we’ve been searching out our Lego pieces to copy them. We have a motley collection of pieces that are real Legos as well as some that are no name brand plastic bricks.

To be able to demonstrate one of the cool illustrations, Rachel chose to recreate the Tower of Babel scene. As you can tell, she adapted the illustrations to fit the Legos that we had.

I also love the Faith Builders Bible. It is a perfect personal Bible for a child to want to keep and to read.
