    Great Devotional Bible

    I find myself regularly reviewing study Bibles and devotional Bibles. The NIV Journey Bible is one of the most helpful devotional Bibles I have seen in the last few years. It is well-rounded enough that it will become useful to the new believer, the growing Christian, or the lifelong follower of Christ seeking ways to revitalize their lives.

    As has been noted by other reviewers, each book is surveyed using the following the outline:

    + Introduction

    + The Bottom Line

    + Central Ideas

    + Outline (not included in every book)

    + Timeline

    For an example from the book of Genesis demonstrating where the book fits into the history of the world and with God's interaction with His creation see the included image.

    Even more impressive to me are the themes that are used to guide the various notes included in the text of this edition:

    + Knowing Yourself

    + Managing Resources

    + Addressing Questions

    + Strengthening Relationships

    + Discovering God

    + Why Jesus?

    + Reasons to Believe

    These seven themes are appropriate for Christians at any point of their journey - as points to begin or be challenged in their Christian growth.

    The notes are well-indexed by their type, but there does not seem to be general topical index that would allow the reader to draw from the notes as a whole - each index will need to be individually searched. Though this is a common problem with study and devotional Bibles, it could be easily correct with an on-line index made available to those purchasing the book.

    This Bible is full of additional helps: topical studies, brief surveys of major events in Bible history, reading plans, etc.

    The book would make a wonderful gift for a new believer, a pastor who is in the midst of their career. I would also suggest that it would make a worthwhile personal purchase for the Christian wanting to grow from wherever they are in their walk with the Lord.

    The Journey Bible is a seeker sensitive resource for the Willowcreek Community. Willowcreek is Bill Hybel's megachurch out in Illinois. "The Journey" theme is one of the keywords / buzz phrases that Willowcreek uses a lot in their campus verbiage.

    When I first received the Bible for review, I noticed right away how it reminded me of the "Good News for the Modern Man bible. The Good News came out in 1966 and was marketed as a Bible for the every day person and written in a "relevant" format. The Journey Bible is printed on newsprint and is very "tall" in its profile. So right away it feels and looks very substantial. Second, even though it is the familiar NIV translation, it has a very approachable layout.

    The Journey Bible takes an "exploratory approach addressing key questions inquisitive readers may have about the Bible and its relevance for today."

    Of course there are notes and insights woven throughout the complete text, many of which are designed to draw busy readers into the Bible's core message and point the way to a relationship with Jesus. In fact, if you look at the Bible from the edge, you will quickly see that key books are "highlighted" by markings on the paper's edge - pointing "the way" from Genesis to the book of Romans.

    The helpful iconography follow six "seeker themes" through the Journey Bible:

    Discovering God

    Addressing Questions

    Strengthening Relationships

    Reasons to Believe

    Knowing Yourself

    Managing Resources

    I think this would make a great "gift Bible" for any new Believer, or it would also make a great "camp Bible" for a camper or counselor.

    Thank you to Zondervan and Booklook for this preview copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.
