I am taking a Bible Study course (Jeff Levins The Great Adventure). Lectio Divina has been added to our study schedule by the instructor and my new Bible is perfect for this. I have read other books on Lectio Divina and having this included as a side bar in the Bible is wonderful and is so convenient. It really simplifies praying with the scriptures and provides helpful explanations of each passage. I have already shown my copy to the rest of our Bible Study group and our Pastor was the first one to order a copy for himself. This Bible will be a life long daily companion for me. Gratefully Yours.
I have only begun to use it, but so far am happy with it. Easy to read font. The short commentary on almost every page provides a helpful summary of that chapter or section. Anyone considering this Bible should look at the preview pages on the web site, which provide a accurate representation. The product description says it includes "all manner of helpful aids, connections..". That is an overstatement.
Nice Lectio Divina version Bible. However, some illustrations within text seemed to suggest modern oppression upon certain minority groups cmimitted by Anglo or White members (I myself am Hispanic and see no need to view this illustrated oppression, namely minorities as always viewed as victims). Why alienate "any" ethnic or racial group in a bible? Or portrayed in a certain manner as stereotypical? No need for it. There's righteous and not-so-righteous in each and every racial/ethnic group. Thank you.
