Experience New Growth and Transformation in Your Spiritual Walk
Are you experiencing a hunger to know God more completely in your life? Do you long for a deeper connection with him? If so, then the NIV Spiritual Renewal Bible—the recipient of the 1999 ECPA Gold Medallion Award—is for you. Using a time-tested process honed over decades of counseling and teaching, Stephen Arterburn employs 7 core principles of spiritual renewal and refreshment, connecting you more closely with God’s Spirit through his Word and helping you to develop the deep, satisfying change you desire in your spiritual life. 
• 66 book introductions focused on the thematic study and spiritual renewal aspects of each Bible book
• Text notes highlight renewal themes as they emerge from the text of the Bible
• Multi-feature character profiles assess how different personalities managed different challenges in their walk with God
• Spiritual keys devotional reading plan: Two cycles (OT and NT) of 49 devotions each lead the reader through 7 keys of spiritual renewal with 7 devotions for each key
• Spiritual disciplines essays that describe the various disciplines of the faith such as prayer, Scripture reading, and others
• Spiritual disciplines profiles: one-page articles that describe how certain characters of the Bible employed the various Spiritual disciplines in their lives

My take on this book:
The Spiritual Renewal Study Bible is perfect for someone needed to recharge their spirit. I really like the size of this Bible, it isn't overly thick or heavy. There isn't a presentation page with this one, which is something I always look for. I like that the font is a nice size which is easy on the eye, while I liked the brown print, on what I would consider a cream colored page  I wish the print had been a bit bolder, my copy looks a bit washed out. A great plus is God's words are written in red, something that I always appreciate. There are several useful features with this Bible such as plenty of study notes, as well as spiritual discipline profiles that are ten page articles that describe how certain Biblical characters employed various spiritual disciplines. The spiritual disciplines devotionals will help with spiritual renewal. Anyone who needs a plan on how to grow in your faith might find the Spiritual Renewal Study Bible useful, in my opinion it's the perfect Bible for starting your spiritual journey. A great gift for a new christian or anyone looking to grow in their spiritual walk with God.
