I ordered The Journey Bible/Revealing God and How You Fit into His Plan from the site that I joined so I can review books for free. You can check the site out at www.booklookbloggers.com. This NIV edition of the Bible is very interesting.
The book is published by Zondervan which I know to be a reputable company. The editors chose 5 books of the Bible as those that would give the reader a good grasp on what the Bible is all about. They refer to them as FIVE ALIVE and include Genesis, Deuteronomy, John, Acts and Romans. There is a page and a half of “Jesus’ Famous One-Liners”…those quotes that we often might use even in every day life such as “Do to others what you would have them do to you.” (Matthew 7:12).
There is a FIVE ALIVE 30 day reading plan included as well as Book Summaries and Main Themes, Defining Moments of both the Old and New Testament and many other really neat features. Included in the chapters are side thoughts….Addressing Questions, Discovering God, Knowing Yourself and other topics to inspire thought.
Of course the focus is to draw the reader closer to knowing God and establishing a relationship with His Son Jesus Christ. As it says on page xviii “You can visit the mosque where Muhammad is buried. Buddha was cremated, and his ashes dispersed. But when you go to Jerusalem and visit Jesus’ tomb…it’s empty.”
I would highly recommend this Bible for any seeker…someone who is a “spiritual explorer”. You will not be disappointed.
