For some reason or other, usually the first bible that people are introduced to is the King James Bible. While a beatuiful translation, it is very difficult to understand since the language does not reflect the current times. With that being said, even modern translations can sometimes be confusing unless you are a bible scholar and know how to study and read the bible. You can sometimes get caught up in the story and not understand the deeper meaning.
This bible is perfect for those who are new to the bible, and who thirst to understand the real meaning of the principles and wisdom that overflows from every word.
As many times as I have read the bible I have often struggled to understand the true meaning, thus losing the opportunity to apply what I have read to my personal walk. However, the notes and learning tools in this bible has brought on a fresh conversation in mind. I can understand better, and make my own discoveries. My relationship with God is moving to a higher dimension because I can hear what He is saying to me. It all makes so much sense. After understanding and really grasping, you can really apreciate God's sovereignty and the perfect wisdom of His word.
If you have ever wished to pull the same application and meaning from the bible as your pastor does when teaching, then this bible will help you on your way. Do not be discouraged by others who may say that this translation is not authentic, or if some of the descriptions are not theologically correct. Just allow the Holy Spirit to speak to you, and you will get you what you need. Remember, its about your personal relationship with your Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, that is important. Any way that you grow closer to Him should be exploited at all costs. This bible will definitely help.
