Tozer Bible: KJV Version, hardcoverBy Hendrickson Publishers “The Word of God well understood and religiously obeyed is the shortest route to spiritual perfection. Nothing less than a whole Bible can make a whole Christian.” —A. W. TozerKey writings of one of the twentieth century’s most profound Christian authors are married with the scriptures that A. W. Tozer loved, studied and wrote about over the course of his forty year ministry. Hendrickson Publishers is proud to introduce the A. W. Tozer Bible, which will introduce a whole generation of readers to his work. Tozer (1897–1963), an pastor, preacher, student and teacher, is perhaps the closest American writer to C. S. Lewis, with the same penetrating insights and straightforward use of language. His bracing words, which accompany related passages throughout this Bible, unlock many of the mysteries of the Scriptures in language that could have been written today.This unique volume features over 500 key selections and teachings, taken from more than 40 of Tozer’s writings, ranging from seminal bestselling books like The Pursuit of God and The Attributes of God to lesser-known works such as The Size of the Soul and The Root...

Family Life Marriage Bible, NKJV

The Family Life Marriage Bible is published by Thomas Nelson Publishers and is written by Dennis and Barbara Rainey, co-founders of FamilyLife. It is a nice devotional Bible for couples with a focus on building stronger families and family relationships. This devotional Bible has lots of content including devotionals for couples, articles, answers to parenting questions, romantic tips, faqs, quotes, notes, and more. It contains many insights on building stronger relationships and it even includes tips on strengthening the romance in your marriage. The amount of advice in the Bible is amazing. The Family Life Marriage Bible is published in the New King James Version. The NKJV lends itself well to devotional Bibles and is the perfect choice for this type of content. One of my favorite features was the romance FAQ. Let’s face it- us guys are clueless. We don’t know that it matters if we take out the garbage or not.  For use, that doesn’t compute into romance. That’s not a cause-and-effect that we understand. We think in terms of ‘push the button’ or ‘pull the lever’. For example, ‘kiss cheek, move on to step 2’. The romance FAQ, along with all of the helps in this Bible, help guys and girls understand each other, and understand each other’s needs. The text is not too small even in personal size hardcover. It is not red-letter. The paper...

Dad’s Bible, The Father’s Plan, NCV

Dad’s Bible, The Father’s Plan, is a New Century Version Study/Devotional Bible that contains notes written to guide fathers in their role of strengthening and leading their families to have a closer walk with God. It shows fathers what it means to be the leader of the home. Some of the features include book introductions, Walking in Authority, Godly Character, Passing It On, Dads in the Bible, Building Your Children, Insights, Questions and Answers, and a Topical Index. The notes help to make this a good devotional Bible for fathers. The hard cover seems sturdy. The fonts are nice and readable. The font-size looks like 8-point. The border of every page has an aged style. There are a handful of pages in the back for notes. I don’t really like how the New Century Version reads. If the goal was to go with a modern version I would have preferred the NKJV. Some verses lose impact. For example, Acts 2:38 says ‘change’ rather than ‘repent’. It is still worth reading. I do recommend this Bible for its notes. The notes make this Bible worth using as a devotional Bible. It’s an excellent Bible for what it is and an excellent companion to the Moms Bible. Used together they would help parents grow and build stronger families. It fills a great need in today’s world. While children are being bombarded...

Moms Bible, God’s Wisdom for Mothers, NCV

Moms Bible, God’s Wisdom for Mothers is a New Century Version Study/Devotional Bible that contains notes written to lead and guide mothers in her walk with God and in strengthening her relationship with her children. The Bible works to firmly establish in the minds of mothers how crucial their unique position of mom really is. Some of the features include book introductions, special sections that include articles, and a topical index. The special sections are interesting. It contains a very well written introductory paragraph on the topics of Creation, evolution, and science. Verses for meditation are highlighted. The notes are by far the best feature of this Bible. Most of the questions and answers are really good- short and sweet, and to the point. The hard cover seems sturdy. The fonts are nice and readable. I’m not sure of this font-size, but it looks like 8-point. I don’t really like how the New Century Version reads. If the goal was to go with a modern version I would have preferred the New King James. Some verses, such as Isaiah 9:6, lose impact. This Bible suggests that you should write notes in the margin of your Bible, but the margins are too small to write notes of any significance. The floral printing in the margin is pretty, but it would have been better to have a slightly larger, clear margin...
