I received a copy of the NIV Pink Bible for purposes of evaluation. Thoughts are my own.
“An Invitation To Hope”
That’s the tagline of this pretty and oh-so-feminine pink Italian Duo-Tone™ Bible. The NIV Pink Bible is designed to help women whose lives have been directly or indirectly affected by breast cancer. So whether you are a breast cancer survivor or a co-survivor, the NIV Pink Bible brings you timeless words of comfort, hope and encouragement.
If you have ever been affected by breast cancer, you will appreciate the 10 inspiring and uplifting reflections, prayers and encouraging stories from people in the same boat as you.
The NIV Pink Bible also includes a complete text of the NIV (the most popular modern-English Bible), and an index to hundreds of verses of hope and encouragement. I must say that I really like that index because it allows me to easily find Bible verses that are a good fit for my needs at any time.
It also has a ribbon marker which is so helpful now that I have a daily goal to read at least 2 chapters in the New Testament, a chapter in Psalms and a chapter in Proverbs. But since I need 3 markers for that, I just use some of our family photos (from photo booths) as bookmarks.
One of the best things I love about this Bible (aside from the fact that the cover is pink and it has silver edge lining) is that its not as bulky as other Bibles out there. I think that’s mainly because the paper used is thin which is good because it’s light, but not too good because I sometimes feel like I might rip the pages.
Now I want to make it clear that though this is a Bible that targets breast cancer survivors and co-survivors, there aren’t a lot of reflections inside — there are only 10 of those. So please don’t expect it to be like other devotional Bibles.
But perhaps people will want to buy it more because it doesn’t only pertain to breast cancer survivors.
The NIV Pink Bible is just the right gift of hope for mothers, daughters, coworkers, friends — or even for yourself if you love pink. You don’t have to be a breast cancer survivor or co-survivor to appreciate its beauty.
And with the presentation page at the first page of the NIV Pink Bible, it will be easy to gift and put a dedication for a friend who you think might need this Bible!
