My husband had been hinting that he wanted this Bible, and after all these years, I think I know what he will like. So, I purchased the tabs and hilighters for him, too. I sat down one day while he was gone and put the tabs on and didn't say a word about it. He picked it up that night to read, and was SO pleased! And it was on sale! Thanks, CBD!
I did not even get past Genesis to dismiss this translation as being unsuitable a a gift for a new believer. In my opinion there are too many passages where vital information is left out or gets lost. Look at Genesis 3 Verse 6 for example, and I could go on and on.
The fact that Adam was "with her" (witnessing the whole situation and not stepping in as he should) is so crucial. But this translation leaves it out.
This copy of the Living Bible is very nice, and easy on the eyes to read. The print is dark, and even. The price is great. The indexing print is easy to read, helping to locate the books in this Bible. Another great value from our Christian family at Christianbooks.
May our Wonderful LORD richly bless you in your reading, and study of His Word.
Was a little disappointed with the Bible. Trying to adjust to it. I don't know if I like the way they have taken out Jesus name & replaced it with "He" reference. I miss the red letter scriptures of Jesus talking, and the head lines of titles in reference to the subjects. But unfortunately I can't return it, because I had my name inscribed on it..so I'll either get use to it or get another type that I'm more satisfied with. But the quality is excellent. Do like the large print.
