The majority of the members of our Jail Ministry Bible STudy Class was using another Bible until one of our inmates was given a Life Recovery Bible. Now all of our members have requested a copy. Most of our students have been involved in some form of addition and they tell us this Bible is arranged to speak directly to their needs. We will continue to use this Bible as an aid in our class.

There were a lot of things going against this book review from the outset. First, I am not a big fan of the Americanization of the Bible that has taken place as a result of the NLT translation. Second, I am not a fan of bible's that take the bible's complex and multi-faceted message and make it into "one thing." With that said, The Life Recovery Bible was interesting as I looked through it. The bible includes twelve-step devotionals, serenity prayer devotionals and recovery principle devotionals. As I am not an addict or in recovering from drugs/alcohol, I cannot say with any authority that this bible will help its target audience.

If I were going to recommend any Bible, it would be the New Oxford Annotated Bible, as this is the only one that I have read that tries to provide the reader with a diversity of information and scholarship. This book may be good though if you are looking for a way to read the bible devotionally and are a recovering addict.
