It is the best Bilbe I've found that is ALL about Recovery, wheather in a 12 step program or not, anyone can benifit from reading the devotionals. It puts everything into perspective when dealing with "life's" trials.
This is a great tool for the Recovery Ministry. The NLT is an easy to understand and read aloud translation. Many features in this bible are focused on helping with recovery and making your relationship with God more personal than most other bibles. It lacks the words of Christ in Red which is my only draw back. Many features include profiles which helps you realize that you are not alone and God is with you at all times. During the good times and during the bad times walking with you and many times there to carry you. I am a member of the Tyndale Blog Network. Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book or ARC.
This is the second time I have reviewed a Bible and it is just as awkward as the first time. It helps that this time I am not reviewing the text itself. The Life Recovery Bible uses the text of the New Living Translation. This is the translation that I really like and that I have begun to most use. As with any study Bible or devotional Bible, it is the notes that distinguish it from other Bible editions. In The Life Recovery Bible, all the study notes, devotions, articles, and book introductions are written primarily for those individuals in some sort of recovery program. This is especially true for either Alcoholics Anonymous (or similar twelve step programs) or Christian twelve step programs. And there are notes, lots of them. They are well written and, from my perspective, should prove helpful to individuals struggling through recovery. As an evangelical Christian, I believe the Bible and Christian fellowship are keys to recovery. The notes in this Bible only reinforce that. I would recommend this Bible for those that are in its obvious target market.A review copy of The Life Recovery Bible was provided to me free of charge by Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for an unbiased review.
I got a copy of this Bible in my first year of sobriety (I've got just over six years - just for today). While doing my Third Step, I rediscovered my "lost" faith. This Bible has been, like the Lord, my constant companion. More than ANY other Bible I've ever had, this one is my most used, loved, referenced, and cherished. I'd recommend it not *just* to people in Twelve Step/Recovery programs, but to *ANYONE* looking for a deep, insight-filled, well thought out Bible. I'd give it ten stars if I could!
I have many bibles but this one is the answer to my addiction to self doubt and fear of recovery. God is awesome and gives when you are ready to receive! This study bible has the study helps I needed! I recommend it to/ for anyone ready to recover! The size is easy to carry and has very readable text and notes. I am enjoying NLT version as its very easy to understand!
