David H. Kim is the Pastor of Faith and Work at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City. He is also Executive Director of the Center for Faith and Work.

My take on this Bible:
If you're someone who works, and lets face it most of us are, is there a way to integrate your faith into your work? Well that's what this Bible is geared toward. It combines doctrine, and scripture application and real life experiences together to help you understand how faith can relate to your work no matter what your job might be. The features of Core doctrine, deeper truth, connection and deeper at work are the real features that help you connect your faith with your daily work. I have enjoyed incorporating these readings into my daily Bible studies. A bit about this Bible is the first thing that I noticed was the jump out at you font. Probably the best font I have seen in a Bible in quite a while, it's very easy to read because of it's size. I like that there is a center reference column, and the hardcover actually matches the dust jacket. There isn't a presentation page which is something that I always look for. Overall this Bible has some of the standard features that you find in many Bibles such as a table of weight and measures, a few color maps in the back. Overall a nice little Bible that is presented in the NIV translation that will help the user connect their faith with their daily jobs.
A complimentary copy of this Bible was provided for review.
