loreallepaAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Highly Recommended!!July 1, 2014loreallepaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have been in search for a new Bible so when I saw this one up for review I snatched it up. When I saw that the contributors were Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend I was super excited to get it!
I love how sturdy this Bible is! That's one of the reasons I was on the search for a new one, my old one has a paper cover and just isn't holding up over the years. The NIV Life Journey Bible is so sturdy, I'm sure it would hold up perfectly for years and years!
This Bible is also easy to read and holds such great nuggets of advice for your daily life! I would recommend this Bible to everyone, men and women both.
This book was provided to me free of charge by Book Look in return for my honest review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
JanetTemple, TXGender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Full NIV Text with Cloud and Townsend InsightsJune 23, 2014JanetTemple, TXGender: FemaleQuality: 3Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I've read several books by Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend, including "Boundaries" and Cloud's "Changes That Heal," so I was pretty excited to learn about the "NIV Life Journey Bible." First and foremost, this work contains the complete text of the NIV Bible in its most recent edition. Scattered throughout in blue boxes or edge highlighting are features provided by Cloud and Townsend to help readers apply Bible truths to their lives, particularly in regard to spiritual, emotional, and relational growth.
I've read a few other Bibles arranged this way with devotional insights from popular authors' works placed in relevant spots. I expected to find the same here. I was happy to note that the features placed alongside the Bible text by Cloud and Townsend appear to be unique to it or to have been developed specifically for this work based on precepts from their other works (as opposed to being cut and pasted or quoted directly from other works). I appreciate that! The features I am most excited about are the character profiles (30+), essays (20), and insights (300!), though I appreciate the book introductions, too. Other references include reading plans, a subject index, and "where to find it."
The only downside for me was the ink. People with a sensitivity to newsprint may have trouble reading this Bible. I have to read the Bible text from a different Bible, then the insights, just one at a time, in a well-ventilated area. I've never been allergic to a book before! And this one is a Bible?! I guess there's a first time for everything.
I received a complimentary copy of the "NIV Life Journey Bible" from the BookLook Blogger program in exchange for this honest review.
Dr JSKAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5June 11, 2014Dr JSKAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The NIV Life Journey Bible: Explore How Scripture Meets Your Deepest Needs, Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend General editors, published by Zondervan Publishing, is a Bible that desires to enhance the lives of all those who are blessed to turn its pages.
As it states in the title, this Bible comes in the easy to read and understand New International Version, but the positive aspects of it do not end at this point. Colorful maps, detailed study aids, and captivating book introductions bring this Bible to a must have in your arsenal of scriptures.
While the afore mentioned positive aspects of this Bible are wonderful, they are, for the most part, found upon the pages of almost every Bible printed today. So why purchase this particular Bible? I'm glad you asked. This Bible has so much more to offer its readers than the average on the market today.
Its enhancements come from the pens of Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend. They have put together some amazing insights based on their growth principles, insights that help the student of scripture engage more powerfully in the act of study. These insights make it easier to seek spiritual, personal and relational growth.
The choice of a new Bible is important and should not be taken lightly. For those seeking a deeper, more spiritually focused relationship with God, I would highly recommend looking twice at this one.
