Book Description

“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 readers discover the practical aspects of Christianity and better understand God. Patterned after the Willow Creek model of ministry and intended for those in the investigative stage of their spiritual journey, The Journey’s exploratory approach addresses key questions inquisitive readers may have about the Bible and its relevance today. Notes and insights are woven throughout the complete NIV Bible text, drawing readers into the message and pointing the way to a relationship with Jesus. Icons trace six seeker themes throughout Scripture: "Discovering God," "Addressing Questions,” “Strengthening Relationships," "Reasons to Believe," "Knowing Yourself," 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.

The Journey can be used as an evangelism tool and makes a perfect gift for new believers and those looking for answers to life’s deepest questions. It is also a helpful guide for veteran Christians who want a refreshing perspective on the basics of their belief.

My Review

This is a fabulous bible to give to new believers. Or just to people who are looking for the Truth and for answers in an easy to follow format.

There is great introductory material in this bible:

o   What Is A Spiritual Explorer?
o   How To Seek God
o   A Summary of the Bible
o   Who is Jesus?
o   Jesus’ Famous One-Liners
o   Crossing the Line: How to Follow Jesus
o   Defining Moments of the Old Testament
o   Defining Moments of the New Testament
o   Five Alive

Five Alive is a sensible reading plan for reading key parts of the bible over 30 days. Great introduction for new believers. I love the introductions to each book of the bible with the Bottom Line, Central Ideas and Outline. This bible is relaxed and non-threatening. You will not fill overwhelmed with this version.

Great addition to my bible collection!
