Find the answers for your whole life. It can be difficult to translate God’s Word into an effective plan to stay spiritually healthy, especially as you enter new phases of life. The Bible always holds relevant lessons, but sometimes it takes an experienced guide to help you grow as you face different life experiences. Doctors Henry Cloud and John Townsend---bestselling authors of How People Grow and the Boundaries series---bring you the NIV Life Journey Bible, which includes the full text of the NIV, the world’s most accessible Bible translation, paired with their own acclaimed teachings. This Bible provides invaluable support for personal growth and wholeness. Features: * The complete text of the NIV Bible, the world’s most popular modern-English translation * 300 “Insights” – giving you an inside track on tips for emotional and relational health * Over 30 profiles of biblical figures reveal the growth principles that are found in God’s Word * 66 book introductions call out key growth concepts in each book of the Bible * 20 essays develop important principles of spiritual growth, covering topics such as growth, grief, relationships, and more * Reading plans, subject index and “where to find it” index are extra resources located in the back of this Bible.

My take on this Bible:
Whether you are looking for spiritual, personal, relational, or life growth the Life Journey Bible is geared for you. It features notes based on the growth principles developed by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend, Some of the features include:Insights which provide tips for emotional and relationship health. There are illustrative profiles of Biblical characters that show the principles of growth that are found in God's word. There are also book introductions that give information on each book such as author, audience, date and theme. There are also twenty essays which touch on topics such as growth, grief, and relationships just to name a few. Along with all the features mentioned there are also reading plans, and a subject index, along with a where to find it index. Along with this there are several blank pages for personal notes. I always enjoy using an NIV Bible, but this one was just ok in my book. I missed that there wasn't a presentation page, and honestly some of the more recent Bibles have become more colorful which is a bonus for me. The cover didn't really appeal to me either, it just wasn't that eye catching.  Overall, if you're looking for a new Bible in the NIV translation then you should certainly check this one out. 

A complimentary copy of this Bible was provided for review.
