Holy Bible

The month of May is a busy time for First Communion's, the ceremony celebrated in many Christian traditions during which time a young child first receives the Eucharist. It typically occurs around the age of eight, often acting as a rite of passage. The following two new NIV (New International Version) Holy Bibles would make an ideal gift for your special someone making their Communion this year. Please see below for more information.

Investigators Holy Bible

NIV Investigator's Holy Bible:

With a fun detective theme, the NIV Investigator's Holy Bible explains Biblical text in easy to understand language for children ages 8 and up.

More about the book from

"Have you ever used a magnifying glass? It makes everything bigger and easier to see, right? Detectives and scientists magnify things to understand them better. Well that’s just what this Bible does—it’s a magnifying glass to help children understand the Word of God better.

The Bible is a gift from God, but many of the things written in the Bible are hard for kids to understand. In fact, sometimes they’re downright mysterious to kids. Using kid-friendly language and a detective theme, the two color NIV Investigator’s Holy Bible explains the Bible text for kids ages 6–10. Two central mystery-solving characters invite children to investigate the Bible using the following features:

Evidence: Bible book introductions answer what kind of book it is, who wrote it, what happens, and the “best part”
Breakthrough: answers questions kids might ask, such as “Who were the Philistines?” and “What is The Spirit of God?”
Scene: includes descriptions highlighting geographical information pertinent to a verse
Witness: explains the meaning and history behind Biblical names
Detective: quizzes students on what they have learned
Case Closed: explores how the events of a particular book of the Bible relate to children as individuals"
