Let me start by saying that I do not typically use the KJV in my daily life. However, I absolutely love having this on hand for all of my historical writing. And, let’s just get one thing straight – any version that says Charity is the greatest…I’m on board!
So, what do I love about this particular Bible? Well, I’m always a fan of study notes at the bottom of each page. It also includes a concordance and some beautiful, fully-color maps. You’ll find lots of great extras in between the texts too.
The one that I have is a hardcover, but it also comes in multiple cover types – or even the ebook version.
Be sure to pick up a copy for yourself or a loved one this holiday season! It’s a great gift with lots of extras. Link is in the pic above.
Thanks so much for this awesome book in exchange for my review! As always, this is my honest opinion. Here’s to many more!!
The Common English Bible is the newest in a line of “easy to understand” Bibles. It seems like the language is pretty straight forward and there are a decent amount of study notes. However, I did find the layout quite confusing.
This is a quote from the introduction:
“The CEB Study Bible was specifically designed to help the reader gain new insight, benefit from the wisdom of others, and embrace a new season of transformation. It sets the stage for new discoveries and causes the reader to experience the power of scripture in fresh ways. In short, The CEB Study Bible is a readable, reliable, and relevant invitation to grow in God.”
I would guess that it may lead to a bit of confusion as there won’t be many pastors preaching from this version. It would probably suit someone at home with their personal devotions. Again, the layout was a bit tricky for me. (It is very possible that it was the kindle, pre-release version that wasn’t clearly laid out).
Thanks, http://www.netgalley.com for providing me a copy to review! Here’s to many more!!
