How long has it been since you and your family were amazed by God? I mean really, speechlessly, surprised and wowed?
Sometimes the Bible seems full of stories we’ve been hearing forever. We think that we know the Bible stories and what they mean for our lives. And sometimes it’s hard even to get children out of bed for the same old cereal, much less get them up 15 minutes early to hear “the same old story.” And all their favorite books, movies, games, and TV shows—filled with monsters, quests, and ancient secrets—compete with the Bible for our nights and weekends too.
It’s easy to forget that some of the best creatures, secrets, and quests are actually found in the Bible.
In the NIV Incredible Creatures and Creations Bible, our Bible editors wanted to illuminate some of the mysteries of the Bible to help us remember that the Bible is wonderous and even inexplicable at times.
We discovered that God has hidden mysteries in his Word—creatures of myth and legend—from six-fingered men to talking donkeys to the leviathan, and unicorns. Did these creatures really exist? The NIV Incredible Creatures and Creations Bible is a guide, complete with scripture-accurate descriptions and illustrations to help you find the answer.
The NIV Incredible Creatures and Creations Holy Bible reminds us that we don’t live in an ordinary world, but a world where God’s powers are seen and unseen. He creates mysteries and wonders bigger than our understanding and worthy of study and pursuit.
It’s easy to forget that the Bible is not merely a serious guide for sacred living and a book of good, familiar stories. The Bible is also a book of mysteries and marvels written by a God who delights in the curious.
With 50 full-color amazing paintings and theologically-backed articles, The NIV Incredible Creatures and Creations Holy Bible is perfect for the animal lover, history buff, the perpetually curious, or anyone who needs to be wowed by the wonder of God’s imagination and creativity.
