The Jesus Bible is a unique Bible. It is not what I would call a typical Study Bible that has notes based on a majority of the verses throughout the Bible. Instead, The Jesus Bible fills a unique category that shows how the Bible points to Jesus throughout Scripture. This Bible is set up to look at the Bible as a single story that is done in six different "acts" if you will. These acts include Beginnings, Revolt, People, Savior, Church and Forever. Each of these "acts" have a written introduction by renowned authors such as Louie Giglio, Ravi Zacharias, John Piper, Max Lucado and Randy Alcorn. Each book of the Bible has a nicely written introduction and over 300 articles and almost 700 sidebars throughout this Bible show how Jesus is seen throughout Scripture. The Scripture text is only a 7 point font, so that's a little smaller than what some people will be comfortable with. If you like the NIV version and aren't looking for a full commentary study Bible but want to see how you can see Jesus throughout Scripture, then this Study Bible will be an amazing resource for you. If you are a new believer, then this could be a good resource for you to learn about how the Bible ties together as one story across multiple books and how they all point in one way or another to Jesus as the Son of God and our Savior. I received a copy of this Bible from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
I had always been taught the Old Testament was God leading all people to redemption. i knew some of the psalms and passages that are clear references to Jesus' coming to save all people. This Bible makes very clear God's love for us and His leading us, ever since the fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden, toward Jesus' life, death and resurrection.
This is So good! What a blessing! It was for gifts for some very special friends and they are loving it. It explains further, in brief writings, a simple understanding for multiple passages. The writing contributors are all amazing Jesus followers who point to Him through out! I recommend it!
