NIV Pink Bible
An Invitation to Hope
Zondervan, who supports the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF), has released a hot pink duo-tone covered red-letter NIV Bible with silver gilding that is geared towards women facing breast cancer. It has dark pink stitching that matches the darker portion of the cover and contrasts with the light pink. It is a thin line Bible in standard print, so it's not bulky. It also lays flat.
The Bible includes a brief forward by the founder of the NBCF, in which she tells a little about her journey with breast cancer and starting the NBCF. It also includes a few inserts, some of which have a prayer addressing breast cancer, or a poem following by some verses to look up and read. She also includes some advice to women facing this journey, which is think is essential.
The Bible also includes a one-year reading plan, an index of comforting verses, and simple book overviews.
If you or a loved one are facing this journey into cancer, this would be a nice gift to give them. God's Word is a powerful gift, able to draw people to the truth of salvation. Even if it weren't pink, I think God's word is the best gift a person can give. The extras in this printing, I hope, will give encouragement to women, and the convenient size of the Bible makes it easy to carry along in a purse.
I received this Bible from the publisher in return for review. I was not required to give it a positive review.
