BOOK REVIEW: NIV FAITH & WORK BIBLE published by Zondervan
Are you looking for that perfect Christmas present? Getting ready to read your Bible in a year? Zondervan’s NIV FAITH & WORK BIBLE is one you might consider.
I have read the NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION of the Bible and use it from time to time in my studies, not everyone likes this particular translation. I have no problems with the translation itself.
The NIV FAITH & WORK BIBLE, like many of the newer Bibles released today, provide a particular perspective. It’s title implies that the reader will develop an understanding of how to incorporate his faith in what he does.
Of course there is the standard INTRODUCTION to each book of the Bible. What is unique is the 31 STORYLINES incorporated to help new readers see the relationship between the books of the Bible. There are sections entitled DOCTRINES which apparently presents application of what is read to a persons job/ work. And like most Bibles there are several maps at the end.
The hardcover version of the NIV FAITH & WORK BIBLE is written in standard print and is easy on the eyes. The cross references found in the center column are also easy to read.
I cannot not recommend you read this book because after all, it is a Bible, I am just not certain I would actually purchase one.
