God's word. The Holy Bible. My favorite book to read. No matter what you call it, it is the most wonderful book ever written. I love that there are so many different versions so that it is easily accessible to anyone no matter their background. The New International Version (aka NIV) is one of my favorite to read because it is very easy to read and understand. It is also a more literal translation of the bible.
I received a copy of the NIV Proclamation Bible for review. This version of the bible comes with cross-references and concordances. I chose this particular bible to review because I am looking for a new bible to study from. I found this bible very easy to use and understand.
The NIV Proclamation Bible comes with the following features:
- An overview of the bible and the historical reliability of it
- A "how-to" for applying it to your life
- Maps in the back of the bible
- A brief description and history of each book in the bible as well as who authored each one
- Reference guide down the middle of each page
I loved the brief description at the beginning of each book. It gave me a better handle on what I was about to read and who wrote it. I felt that it was well put together. As I read through the NIV Proclamation Bible I felt well informed about each verse and chapter.
Here is a description about the book:
