Michael5 Stars Out Of 5One-Of-A-KindJanuary 22, 2018MichaelQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I never write reviews of products. But after seeing the only other review at the time of this writing was a ONE STAR review, I felt compelled to offer another take.
Jacqueline is critical of the Global Impact Bible because it contains quotes and opinions from persons who are not orthodox in their theology and some are not even Christian. I sympathize with her concern for non-Christians. However, in my experience with non-Christians, this Bible is perfect.
This Bible is unique. I would NOT recommend it to anyone first and foremost as their primary study bible. In other words, if you are serious about understanding the Biblical text, this is not the Bible you need. However, if like me you have a great study Bible and/or commentaries, Bible dictionaries, etc. then this Bible is something you do not yet have in your toolkit.
On every single page, there is an interesting quote or fact about how the Bible has impacted our world. Whether it be the Bible's impact on science, government, or the arts, there is something in here that will interest everyone.
Take for example Psalm 23. Psalm 23 is quoted in Titanic & Spiderman, but did you know one of the men on Flight 93 that crashed in Pennsylvania quoted Psalm 23 with an operator on the ground just before they stormed the cockpit? There are hundreds, if not thousands of stories like this included throughout this Bible.
Don't buy this as your first study Bible. But if you are looking to be inspired by the impact the Bible has had on the world, this is a first-class option that hopefully inspires a wave of similar resources.
Jacqueline1 Stars Out Of 5Global Impact BibleNovember 23, 2017JacquelineQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0This is an ESV translation of the Bible and is published by Worthy Publishing and Museum of the Bible Books. The thing that drew me to buy this particular Bible was that it includes more than 1,000 illustrated articles revealing the Bible's influence on:
Science & Medicine
Education & Literacy
Government & Politics
Exploration & Commerce
Arts & Entertainment
I thought it would be a perfect Bible to give to a non-Christian so they could see the Bible in a whole new light. And, it's true.... It was fascinating to read how the Bible has affected these areas. However, before giving it as a gift, I thought I would read the articles. I got less than 200 pages into it and saw so many things that were non-Scriptural, that I could never give this Bible away.
(Albert Einstein) He writes of the Jewish tradition experiencing an intoxicated joy and amazement at the beauty and grandeur of this world, of which man can form just a faint notion. This joy is the feeling from which true scientific research draws its spiritual sustenance, but which also seems to find expression in the song of birds. To tack this feeling to the idea of God seems more childish absurdity.
(Paul Johnson) He writes of how in Genesis, women were portrayed unlike elsewhere in ancient literature. Their (women's) emotions are so tenderly and faithfully conveyed that one instinctively believes that a woman set them down.
In the second sequel of the Star Trek movie, Star Trek ll: The Wrath of Khan, the story revolves around a new invention called Genesis that can transform a dead planet into a habitable approximation of Earth by rearranging the planet's matter. Like, God, it could create life. Then they quote Mc Coy who says: Now we can do both (destroy and create) at the same time. According to myth, the earth was created in six days. Now watch out! Here comes Genesis! We'll do it for you in six minutes!
Page 77 a poem by Yannai is quoted. He used biblical vocabulary and themes. However the poem is not accurate to what the Bible teaches.
It is about Moses and here is what it says in part:
When he reached the mountain of God,
he was eased of his hardship and
relieved of his toil.
At first an angel appeared before him to
change his form into that of an angel
Then the Lord taught him to look at
fire, to be expert in fiery visions.
The worst quote I encountered was one by Will Durant who said: The Old Testament is not only law; it is history, poetry and philosophy of the highest order. After making every deduction for primitive legend and pious fraud, after admitting that the historical books are not quite as accurate or as ancient as our forefathers supposed, we find in them, nevertheless, not merely some of the oldest historical writing known to us but some of the best.
Whyever would the editors include a quote like that?
I saw enough in just 200 pages to show me that I would never recommend this Bible. It's too bad, because the idea is a good one.
