My Holy Bible for African-American Children, is as the title says, a Bible designed for African-American children. It is a King James Version with many extras.
The many extras include pages with lyrics from popular Negro spirituals, categorized Bible verses such as ones for “I am special to God”, The 10 Commandments for Children, The Lord’s Prayer, the Beatitudes, and other special pages. The book is printed in large print type for easy reading with the words of Christ in red ink.
Each book of the Bible is preceded by an Introduction to give the reader a brief history of the book as well as an outline for it. There is also an Index as well as a Concordance.
There are 32 illustrated pages throughout the book. All the people in the illustrations are African-Americans.
What I Like: Everything. The people depicted in most illustrated Bibles are light-skinned. I don’t know what it’s like to be an African-American, but I believe if I were I would appreciate a Bible of this nature.
What I Dislike: Nothing.
Overall Rating: Excellent.
Age Appeal: 7 and up.
