2 Stars Out Of 5
I am disappointed in this bible.
October 12, 2012
I have had this Bible less than a week but I have found things that make me unhappy with this bible. It is a Messianic Jewish Bible so I am confused as to why the Torah Readings do not include the Prophets and the New Testament readings. In the back of the bible it has "Welcoming the Sabbath with different prayers." The "Traditional Blessing" is only one sentence long where the prayer I am familiar with is much longer. I would like to know why they only had the first sentence of the prayer rather than the entire prayer? I also did not care for the wording of this prayer verses the one I am familiar with. I am not sure if the other prayers have been shortened as well or not?
I was hoping this being a Messianic Jewish bible they would use the Hebrew names for God (Yahweh), Jesus (Yeshua) and other bible characters but they did not.
I am hoping once I get into actually using the bible I may find more things to like about it.
I love the layout of the bible and the print size is nice. There are also really nice drawings throughout the bible but I have yet to decide if I will use this bible or give it away to someone else.
This would probably make a nice bible for a family with young children.
