    Great Study Bible

    In His Image Devotional Bible NLT is very well organized. You can take one of God's images and read about it through the whole bible or just start from the beginning and read. There are over 300 references to God's image so you can do one a day reading or go at your own pace. One of the big things I like is now I know where to find these different images of God in scriptures. This will help someone to memorize verses with the same topic. The one thing I had to get use to is the placing of the page numbers. They are not on the outside of the pages but in the middle of the pages. Once you realize where the placing of the page numbers are it really is not a big deal. Overall this a great study bible.

    All about God, the Author!

    How refreshing it is to find a devotional Bible that flees the popular angles of the reader's self-esteem but instead places all focus and emphasis on the Author, our Lord God! In this devotional Bible, each book of the Bible begins with an introduction of the book, a description of how God reveals Himself in the book, as well as the purpose of and some key verses from the book. Throughout In His Image, the designers have also strategically placed short insets discussing God's names and titles, His character and His attributes. They have further supplied what they call "Response to God" articles as well as "Prayerful Reading" guides. This devotional Bible is thick with guiding supplements to knowing God more, and I would suggest it specifically for those new believers who lack a Sunday School Background. I have used the NLT for several years, specifically with individuals either with no biblical background or for whom English is a second language. The translation is crisp and clear, based off the Masoretic Text (OT) and The Greek New Testament (NT), and was most recently updated in 2007. The only additives this devotional Bible lacks are a simplified concordance and topical index, both of which could be used for biblical studies beyond those concerning the character or names of God.

    In His Image

    I received this Bible to review from Tyndale a few weeks ago. It took me awhile to post a review because I am not sure how to write a review for a Bible, but I will try. This Bible would be great for a new believer or someone who needs a basic understanding of the names of God, and who enjoys a translation that is easy to read. It is the New Living Translation, which I find is a good resource if you need a verse explained in "current" language. I still prefer the NIV.
    This Bible has small sections that give definitions of the different names of God used in the Old and New Testaments. They are on (almost) every other page. Sometimes it is quite repetitive. It also has prayerful readings on the sides of the pages, which explains a bit about God's character and gives simple meditations and prayers; I thought that was a nice touch, until I noticed that many of those are repeated also.
    In the beginning of each chapter is an introduction to the book. It explains what the book is about, how to find God in that book and some key areas of the book. I thought that was great, especially for someone new to reading the Word, until I saw that in the book of Joshua it calls Joshua a "character". I understand that to us, the men and women in the Bible are "characters", however, I think that term is misleading and will cause some to view what they read as fiction. That was my main disappointment.
    Overall, I feel that this Bible would be a good resource for a new believer or a teen that is just starting to dig in.

    Very good and easy to understand

    read through a few of the pages in the features and really liked the features. Any Bible can come with many features, but it won't be useful unless you use them in correspondence with your daily devotions or studies.God can minister to anyone through His word and the extra features help us gain more understanding of the scriptures.It will lead to a deeper and richer relationship with God and that's what this Devotional Bible is about - "Be changed from the inside out as you encounter God through directed, prayerful Scripture readings focused on His attributes" If you know a friend who is beginning to know about the Lord, you can recommend or gift this Bible to them, knowing that the features of this Bible will be of great help and interest.

    I was provided a review copy from the Tyndale Blog Network.

    In His Image Devotional Bible NLT

    As always, whenever I get a Bible in the mail, my soul leaps and does a little jig. This case was no different. When I actually started reading this Bible after skimming past the jargon on how this translation is different from other ones and oh-so great (what almost EVERY other translation boasts), I started digging in. At the beginning of each book, there is a page on the central theme and aspects of God's character in the chapters. On the bottom of some pages, there are paragraphs on seeking to be more godly. On some pages, specific verses are emphasized in color; the main colors in the book are black and blue. On the right of some pages, there are reflections and a specific array prayers made by the editors that are repeated. This hardcover book does not include the extra Catholic books of the Bible.

    Devotional Bible

    As a blogger for the the Tyndale blogger program, I had the opportunity to review a modern, yet well known and reliable translation of the bible, The New Living Translation NLT. In particular, this copy of the NLT is the Devotional Bible, In His Image. Believing in the importance of the Good News of the bible, and having faith that the bible is the word of God to the human race, I feel it is essential that the bible is translated into easy to read language that can be understood by all. It is a grave diservice to prohibit or condemn easy to understand translations of the bible as some cults and religions do. There is no reason whatsoever to maintain the antiquated opinion that only the King James version (or other proprietary or antique versions for that matter) have a monopoly on the word of God. After all the KJV is in of itself a translation. Regrettably, the antique English style of the KJV and many other older translations, although poetic, make it prohibitive for many to read and understand the bible's message. So what's the point of having a bible if one can not understand or appreciate it.
    The NLT is among one of many respected modern English translations. What makes this bible stand out from other NLTs is that this is a devotional bible. Introductory background material and information is also provided before each book as well as within the text. The two tone pages, and the formating make this translation easy to read. This supplimentary material is clearly "set aside" so as to not be confused with the actual bible text. There are basically enough one reflection for each day of the year. The only downside to this casual translation is the fact that it may not be as literal as the original texts. I highly reccomend this translation. It is important to keep in mind that the text is somewhat of a paraphrase- a meaning for meaning, rather than a word for word translation. This bible is perfect for reading and for drawing close to the truths of God, but not exactly the best for an indepth theological study.Supplemetal study articles add indepth information for those readers who wish to have more knowledge. As a blogger I recieved a copy of this bible for the purpose of writing this review and the opiniosn expressed are my own.
