This Bible is given to inmates in the local jail as well as sent to inmates in prison. Even though it is more expensive than other Bibles, it is the one most inmates request. It helps them through the steps of recovery and the devotions are a wonderful aid. If you have a family member in rehab or trying to overcome a sin, this is the Bible for them. One of the easiest Bibles to comprehend.
THIS BIBLE IS THE BAR-NON BEST FOR THOSE WORKING A 12-STEP PROGRAM IN RECOVERY. IT SOURCES EACH OF THE 12 STEPS AND REFERENCES THEM TO RELATED PASSAGES IN THE BIBLE. THIS PARTICULAR ONE WAS A GIFT TO A GIRL IN PRISON WHO IS TRYING TO TURN THINGS AROUND. SHE WAS DELIGHTED AND SAYS SHE NEVER REALIZED HOW THE 12 STEPS ARE SO INTERTWINED WITH THE BIBLE. SPIRITUALITY IS THE BASIS OF THE 12 STEPS, AND THIS NLT LIFE RECOVERY BIBLE SHOWS HOW. CBC HAS IN-STOCK AVAILABILITY AND VERY GOOD PRICING. IT IS MORE THAN WORTH WHATEVER EFFORT IT TAKES TO GET IT.
I got this book when I was starting to attend a Faith based recovery group and found that the version doesn't make me feel ashamed of being in recovery but points out that the mess of a life I lived can be renewed into a message for others and to give others faith that if you but your trust in Jesus, He will guide you, hold your hand and will comfort you. I am so thankful for all the care that was put into the commentary notes and how they relate to life as I know it.
