I prayed about the right Bible for me and felt led to purchase this one. For the first time in my Christian walk I look forward to reading His word. I also now read my Bible regularly although I am busy, I find the time. Today my sister who does work for church said something that was not quite what Jesus said, I told her to read John 15! See how important it is to read your Bible. The life principle foot notes are a God send too. It helps with applying the scripture to your life. If you want your life to change by applying God's word this Bible will help you.
