Don't knock it 'til you've read it!
on 27 December 2008
This is a really good way to introduce someone to the bible. The text is modern and accessible, the illustrations are fresh and clear and the additional notes are very helpful. Ignore the bitter atheist who has also pretended to write a review - the errors in his text show that he obviously hasn't read this particular version. Yes, some of the material is difficult, because this is a real story, unexpurgated and gritty. If you want an easy read full of fluffy bunnies and invariably nice people, I suggest you try the children's section! However, if you want a book that will help you to find meaning and direction in your life then here's a great place to start. Oh yes, don't just read it alone - find some christian friends and share your journey of exploration with them. I strongly recommend it.
