THE JOURNEY BIBLE-NIV: Revealing God and How You Fit into His Plan



Journey Bible-NIV by Zondervan Publishing“In short, it’s written for people we might refer to as spiritual explorers --- or seekers.”

Taken from the book –
What is a Spiritual Explorer?  A spiritual explorer is someone on a journey to discover spiritual truth – particularly truth about God.  If you’re serious about discovering spiritual truth, you’re qualified to be called a spiritual explorer. 

The Journey Bible is written in the New International Version and   user friendly for those using a Bible for the first time, or in the early stages of learning about God’s word. It's very possible you'll find answers to troubling questions and find that special relationship and connection to God and His word.



Special Features –

            This Bible is complete with a Dictionary/Concordance to define unfamiliar terms.

            Jesus’ Famous One Liners 

            A one-month reading plan covering five books of the Bible –
                        Genesis, Deuteronomy, John, Acts, and Romans

            Who Is Jesus? – Questions and answers about Jesus

            Explorer Studies:  7 interesting themes

            Subject Index – intended to target your study showing Scripture location

            Each book of the Bible is preceded by:
                        Introduction
                        The Bottom Line
                        Central Ideas
                        Outline (not included in every book)
                        Timeline
         
           Interesting notes highlighted on many Scripture verses

The Journey Bible is an excellent starting point for beginners, but will minister to all, whether you are in the early stages of your Christian growth, or have a wealth of years behind you.  It will set you on a definite course and make your journey through the Scriptures meaningful, and give you a better understanding of God’s word.  I’m planning to use it as a companion to my Life Application Study Bible.  My rating is 4 stars.

I received a complimentary copy of this Bible from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.  

About the Bible:  You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13

The NIV Journey Bible is uniquely designed to help you discover the practical aspects of Christianity and better understand God. Based on the REVEAL study from Willow Creek, this Bible is intended for anyone in the investigative stage of their spiritual journey. The Journey s exploratory approach addresses key questions you may have about the Bible and its relevance today. Notes and insights are woven throughout the complete NIV Bible text, drawing you into the message and pointing the way to a relationship with Jesus. Icons trace six "explorer" themes throughout Scripture: Discovering God, Addressing Questions, Strengthening Relationships, Reasons to Believe, Knowing Yourself, "Why Jesus?,"and Managing Resources. Also included in The Journey are introductory articles that define key concepts involved in being a spiritually open person, book introductions, indexes, a dictionary/concordance, and a Fire Alive reading plan covering Genesis, Deuteronomy, John, Acts, and Romans."
