Bring back the family Bible! In the olden days it was displayed in the living room, reminding all of the centrality of God. And…it used to be a legal document, recording marriages and births. So wouldn’t it be nice to bring back this tradition? And…it would be a wonderful gift for a family after a wedding or the birth of the first child. Need help? Here is a review of the best family Bibles. Consult this top list, and give a gift that will never be forgotten!
My first recommendation is the “Family Faith & Values Bible.” Everyone will love this version. It is beautiful, large, and hearkens back to the tradition of the family Bible of old. Go with the King James Version to add further sense of gravitas to the tradition of the family Bible.
I highly recommend the NIV Heritage Family Bible. With a beautiful goatskin leather binding, this beautiful, high-end Bible will be a generational gift for any family. And, the New International Version (NIV) translation makes it readable for bedtime stories, family devotions, and to read on special occasions like Christmas and Easter.
The Catholic Wedding Bible by Fireside Catholic Publishing is a wonderful gift for new couples who are Catholic. It emphasizes the priority of building your home upon the Word of God. Formulated and approved by the US Catholic Conference of Bishops, this version will celebrate matrimony and be treasured for a lifetime. Bound in white leather with silver gilded edging, this Bible is beautiful. And…it has all the features: scripture readings, family genealogy section, and other helpful devotional helps.
The NIV Leather Bound Family Bible, Keepsake Edition by Zondervan checks all the boxes of an heirloom that will be front and center in family’s heritage for decades. It is huge, with beautiful illustrations, a family record section, highest quality bindings that will make this an heirloom that will last for centuries.
Here is a Bible that will be significant in your home for generations. The “Lighting the Way Home Family Bible” features illustrations by classic artist Thomas Kinkaide. It is large, high quality, hardcover, and features the New King James Version translation, with readabilty, yet capturing the classic style of the Elizabethan era. Great for display in a family room! Great gift!
