This book review centers on the New Century Version, but more particularly: the Dad’s Bible. This is the counterpart to the Mom’s Bible. The binding is a reminder of one of those old man’s-man books that had the layers of dust and contained fairy tales for bedtime stories. A clear-type font, traditional thin pages that Bibles sport, and a greenish/brown tint make up the main formatting.
For the ultimate in testing, I chose to give this Bible as a gift to a pastor, and man, that I know well. Overall, he seemed to be rather short of excitement, which could have been due to either slew of Bibles in his bookshelf, or the overall plastic feel to the book. In all, my recommendation goes to finding a good Holman Bible, which carries not only a great accuracy, but also to quality craftmanship. Or for the nerd in your life, perhaps a Kindle version, for a fraction of the cost, if any at all?
