I love the life lessons on each page explaining about the passage on that page and then bringing it right into your own life and then ways to apply it for yourself. Scattered throughout the Bibe are studies(like daily study guides) with questions to explore which always challenge you,your thoughts etc. Then there is the running theme Christ through the Bible and gives you a reading and then leads you on to the next one.At the back there is a section which is titled "He did this for you verses" and you find all the things Jesus did for you and the verse to back this up for example "He offers Salvation" Luke 19:10 the Son of Man came to find lost people and save them. see also 1John4:14 and Titus3:15-16 HE VALUES YOU
Right at the back there is a 30-day new believers studies and thats just great. I love this Bible wether you have been a Christian for 5 minutes or 50 years its a joy.

I have had this Bible for a few months now. I am a recently re-converted Christian and this time around I wanted to have a real relationship with God. I knew that in order to get that I had to study His Word. Although I love the poetry of the King James Version, it is often very hard to understand. So the New Century Version is perfect. Add to that Max Lucado's additional insight and excerpts from his and others works to guide you on your Christian journey and you have everything you need in one book. It is heavier than your 'normal' Bible (about 5lbs), but it's worth its weight in gold. I would encourage every new believer to get this Bible - your soul's salvation depends on it. God Bless You.
