ESV Family Devotional Bible Review + Giveaway
I’m a huge fan of the ESV Bible, so I jumped at the chance to review the ESV Family Devotional Bible with my children. And I’m giving one away to my readers, so make sure to enter at the bottom of this post!
The ESV Family Devotional Bible helps families read and learn about God’s Word together. It contains the entire Bible, with full color illustrations plus 130 family devotions spread throughout the pages. These devotions guide your family through the entire Bible in a year.
Each devotion has an illustration, the scripture reference (so you can read the story as written in the Bible) plus a retelling of the story even young kids can understand. At the end of the story each devotion has several questions to discuss and a key verse from the passage. I really like how some of the questions in the Old Testament point to Jesus fulfilling promises in the New Testament. For example, the devotion about Jeremiah asks, “What is the great promise that God made to his people, and how does Jesus fulfill this promise?”Each devotion has the page number of the next devotion at the bottom. While a simple detail, it happens to be one of my favorite highlights as it makes using this devotion so user friendly! Since the devotions are placed in the Bible near the corresponding scripture passage, that simple detail helps find the next devotion without accidentally skipping any. Plus the included ribbon page marker ensures that your family never loses its place. You’ll find maps such as The Exodus from Egypt, The Places Paul Visited, and more in the section of full-color kid friendly maps at the back of the Bible.
This Bible provides such a great way to get in the habit of reading the Bible together as a family. Just find a convenient time of day and start reading together!

Looks like a great bible to sit down, read, and learn during some quality family time together. I love the illustrations.
Looks like a great Bible to have family devos with. I would like to do this when my kids get older
Beautiful! We love out family scriptures and the habit of reading together. Thanks for sharing yours!
We had a similar family Bible when I was growing up and I loved looking at the pictures while mom read the stories to me. I think it helped so much in my understanding and love for the passages. – Katy
We have a devotional that we use for dinner time but this would be perfect to use for bed time with the kids. Quiet time is so important and this would be an excellent way to get ourselves absorbed in the word.
I think I’d like to use this as a compliment to our existing bible study. And depending on how my boys feel about it, maybe using it as the primary focus.
I would to add this to our family tradition
My family would use the ESV Family Devotional Bible to read stories out of it before bedtime.
I would love to sit down in the evening with the family and read and discuss with this bible! Thanks for the chance 🙂
I have been looking for something like this–I think it will be an interesting way to get others interested in reading the Bible.
