BEAUTIFUL WORD BIBLE (NIV) BY ZONDERVAN PUBLISHING

Rating: 5 of 5 stars

About this time last year, Pastor Robert White of Freedom Church (@myfreedomdfw on SoMe) in Bedford, Texas challenged our congregation with reading the Bible in a Year. He provided us with the Tyndale House Publishers reading plan, which can also be found (for free) at Bible.com. And you might have guessed, there's an app for that!

All my life I have wanted to read the Bible in its entirety, but I always fell short of my goal and gave up. Taking on the task with my church family made me accountable. Staying focused and making a habit to read every day was challenging at times. The whole experience was life changing. Just because I've completed the task given to me by God through Freedom doesn't mean I'm done reading it. The Bible is God's love letter to us, and there's always something new in it. As with most reads, it's your personal experience that enhances the content of the book. As you grow and develop, the text is amplified accordingly.

I don't really have a formal review for this book. It is, after all, the greatest story ever told. There's nothing I can add to it to make it any more than it already is. Reading and meditating each day has given me a great gift ... new perspective and answers to life's struggles. I encourage all to read this book, believers and non-believers. It's beautifully written. It includes all kinds of stories - dramas, mysteries, romance, and even a comedy, to name a few. The best thing about the Bible is that every time I sit down and dig deep, I am rewarded.

Recommendation: If you're a believer, you should already be reading this. If you're a reader, read this. If you're breathing, read this!

Until next time ... Read on!
