I just gave my husband my Bible like this so I could get a leather bound one, so now I'm trying to decide between red or black. I loved the maps, charts and section to write notes. This book is great for both new Christians who are looking to learn more, just as well as it is for a seasoned Disciple of Christ. One of my favorite passages of The Bible is The Beatitudes, and this Bible puts it in an even deeper understanding than I could have imagined. I've recommended this book to everyone I know and will continue to do so. You won't be disappointed. I've tried the Love Languages Bible, Women's Study Bible and a few others, but this one takes the prize.
The New Spirit Filled Life Bible in the New Living Translation is hands down, by far, the most complete study bible on the market today. It provides the NLT which makes the text of the Bible very readable as well as understandable. This Bible draws from the wisdom of some of the greatest Bible scholars and teachers of our time such as Bishop Joseph Garlington Sr. PhD, Marilyn Hickey, G.E. Patterson, James ryle, Charles Simpson, and Reinhard Bonke. This Bible is packed with charts, study notes, original language notes, and a detailed concordance as well. I have read through many versions of the Bible, and this particular Bible has caught my attention and rekindled the fire in me of reading God's Word with a fresh and accurate understanding of it. I would highly recommend this Bible which is produced by Dr. Jack Hayford, one of the great fathers of the faith of our time. This Bible is perfect for both the new Christian as well as the seasoned scholar. You will be glad you made this purchase. I know I am!
when the New Spirit Filled Bible came out, with the NLT and NKJV versions; I eagerly ordered one in the NLT version (which I use and enjoy very much). When I did get it, I noticed how small the print text is, compared with the previous NKJV version, which I have. The footnotes at the bottom of the pages are SO small. A feature of my older Bible has the Truth In Action verses reference numbers in the text, which helps me find them...in the new edition, these reference numbers are no longer there. You have to look at the tiny footnotes on the bottom of the page to find them...I much prefer my 'older' NKJV Spirit Bible...I returned the new one.
