Book Review: The Color Code Bible

I still remember the first time I saw a Rainbow Study Bible.  

I was still in elementaty school. I’m guessing I was about 7 or 8 years old. The Bible was my mom’s, of course, and I was obsessed with the color coded notes and highlights throughout the text. It was like an encrypted mystery and I wanted to decode every page!   

I love reviewing Bibles and was so excited to review this one.  I’ll share more of the details below, but I’ll start with a general review.  Due to the level and amount of text, I would see this being most appropriate for a 7 or 8 year old (or older) or for parents to use to study with their children. 

As described by the publisher, The Color Code Bible from Thomas Nelson Publishing is packed with bright colors, memorization aids, and the never-ending truth of God’s Good News.

64 vibrant pages in the beginning of the text provide a thorough explanation of the color system and offer expanded study features catered to a child’s creative and imaginative mind! 

With topics arranged by color, any reader can learn about salvation and how to put God’s word into his/her daily faith walk.  

The topics and colors are:

Gold: God 

Navy: Sin, evil 

Red: Jesus 

Orange: Washed clean from sin, new life 

Green: Growth in your new life as a Christian and Faith Walk

Blue: Prayer, Praise and Thanksgiving 

Purple : Heaven

The large, readable typeface, bold in-text subject headings, and color-highlighted verses all make this Bible a fantastic purchase for any child (or adult)!

I love adding bibles to my library and this one did not dissapoint. I can see this being a valuable tool to use with my church’s children’s ministry and as a wonderful gift for a new baby or christening event.
