Awesome! Nov 27, 2008
I know there are literally tons of new Bibles coming out daily. I purchased this Bible a little over a year ago, and it is still amazing me day after day! The pictures literally make the Bible come alive! To see a picture of a water pot like the ones that were filled with water, and Jesus turned into wine, causes me to marvel! There are many articles too, all bringing into focus the context from both Old and New Testaments. The footnotes are very good as well.
I suppose if I had to point out a negative, it would be that it appears the contributors to this Bible, seem to adhere to the concept that the various gifts given to believers, were for that day, and not for today. They do not say so explicitly, but some of their wording makes me thing that is true. For me, that does not detract from a very well done Bible! I heartily recommend it to the new believer and the mature believer as well! It will make your faith come alive!
