I got this bible to give to a good friend who just got saved. and after looking at it I got a copy for my self. I enjoy the "hope notes" and the bible passages listed in the back " where to find it" you have it all in one book and that is nice.
This Bible is fabulous! Not only a wonderful translaction, the Hope Notes on almost every page give added encouragement. We have not only bought one for ourselves, we have bought 4 more as gifts so far.
This bible has many features, e.g., hope for today and hopenotes, that are useful for everyday living applications. In the beginning of each book, there is a brief description and key verses of the book to let readers have more understandings from them. If anyone needs up-lifting and encouragements in their lives it is good to have one copy of this bible.
I bought this Bible as a gift for a friend who enjoys Joel Osteen and had mentioned she had lost hers. So when her birthday came around, this was the perfect gift. I had it personalized which was a nice finishing touch. I like the NLT because it makes the Bible easier to undertand and reads well. All around wonderful Bible.
