I purchased several of these bibles as gifts for new believers. I love the stories and reflections, they are just enough to make a new believe want to know more without the in depth info of a study bible. I like to go through and mark with a post it several stories that are especially relevant to want the person/family I am gifting to is going through at the time.
I selected the Bible based on its pretty exterior color and design, but I got a very pleasant surprise when I received it. The inside was full of gospel songs and personal stories of the Homecoming artists as they reflected on the truth of various scriptures. This bonus material has really comforted my heart. So I am very satisfied. that this was an excellent purchase.
