Be inspired by the wisdom of the Scriptures in this special ruby anniversary edition of the NIV Bible.
'For wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her.' (Proverbs 8:11, NIV)
Wisdom is treasure. Better than treasure, as Proverbs suggests, for it can be found by reading and meditating on the Word of God in the Bible. The New International Version is celebrating its fortieth anniversary, and this glittery, ruby-themed Pocket Bible is one of a trio of special editions published to mark the occasion.
Small enough to take with you everywhere you go, this Pocket Bible will ensure you have the Word of God at hand at all times. Its eye-catching cover will undoubtedly draw attention and would serve as a great conversation starter about the Gospel, making it a wonderful gift for anyone who loves to talk about their faith and share the Good News.
The Bible has a removable paper presentation wrapper, over a flexible cover. It includes one ribbon marker and a presentation page.
