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...Read More

Review by Jonathan Ammon of Bible Reading Project The KJV TakeNote Bible (also available in a chocolate brown NKJV), a new wide-margin journaling Bible from Thomas Nelson, takes the grand old King James version and places it into a widely accessible journaling format for note taker’s and Bible lover’s. Though Crossway’s 2006 journaling Bible wasn’t the first on the scene (see Tyndale’s out of print Notemaker’s Bible) it made a splash in the Bible publishing world that took wide-margins further into the mainstream and introduced a format that appealed to avid note maker’s but didn’t intimidate the occasional scribbler. Thomas Nelson applied the philosophy behind the user friendly wide margin format and added a few improvements to make their TakeNote editions, which maximize current trends and advancements in Bible publishing. The most immediately noticeable feature of the Bible is its incredibly soft and flexible imitation leather cover. This is by far the best imitation leather cover I’ve handled. It’s both softer and more flexible than Crossway’s TruTone and features a handsome pebble grain finish. I was surprised by the suppleness, which easily performs the yoga position and allows the Bible to bend easily. It’s actually more supple than some of the goatskin Bibles I’ve handled, and while this may not be a must for every reader it’s a great benefit when you have an edition that’s 7.5 inches wide...Read More
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...Read More
Review by Randy A Brown of Studies In Scripture The Life Recovery Bible is a Bible with notes and features that are written specifically for people that are in need of recovery, or going through a recovery process. The notes are very applicable no matter what you are recovering from, including alcohol, drugs, or just about anything. It contains many articles and notes that are based on a 12-step recovery plan. The notes point out key elements from scripture that apply to the recovery process. It includes many helps and devotionals to build faith and confidence, and to help you understand your situation and how God can help you through it. The free review Bible I received from Tyndale is (roughly) 6.5 x 9.25 in hardcover. It is made well and is money well spent. The New Living Translation is very readable. I would recommend the NLT more for reading than study because it is a ‘thought for thought’ translation rather than a ‘literal’ translation, but as a reading Bible the NLT is great and it serves the purpose of this Bible well. The text is very easy to read, though it is not red-letter. I’m not sure, but it looks like maybe an 8 or 8.5 point font. It contains bold headings within the text, which are really nice. The features are what make this Bible really shine....Read More
BibleWorks 8 contains a vast wealth of study tools that allows you to study the Scriptures more deeply in much less time than the old fashioned way. This goes for preparing sermons and classes too. I highly recommend BibleWorks 8 for Pastors, teachers, writers, etc, but even more than that BibleWorks 8 can help anyone dig deeper into God’s Word. Deep Bible study requires quality study tools. When I study the Bible I like to have all of my books (lexicons, dictionaries, commentaries, other study Bibles, concordances, etc) on the table with me, I have one Bible in front of me, another Bible next to me (to give me the references so I don’t have to keep going back and forth for my next reference), all of my pens and pencils handy, and my notebook next to my Bible. BibleWorks 8 gives you all of these things on one screen. BibleWorks 8 also makes each tool easier and faster to use than the old fashioned way, and when I’m done I can print my work or publish to the web. How does BibleWorks 8 deepen your Bible study? The short answer is the sheer number of tools and the speed of using them. BibleWorks 8 contains dictionaries, commentaries, topical lists, lexicons, and more, that are linked to the verse, passage, or word you select. When you select a word,...Read More
