Cultural Backgrounds Bible NKJV

Book Description

CONTEXT CHANGES EVERYTHING

You’ve heard many Bible stories hundreds of times, but how many behind-the-scenes details are you missing? Sometimes a little context is all you need to discover the rich meaning behind the stories of Scripture.

That’s what the NKJV Cultural Backgrounds Study Bible provides. Every page is packed with expert insight into the customs, culture, and literature of Bible times. These fascinating explanations will serve to clarify your study of the Scriptures, reinforcing your confidence and bringing difficult passages of Scripture into sharp focus.

Discover new dimensions of insight to even the most familiar Bible passages as you take a behind-the-scenes tour into the ancient world.

The Bible was originally written to an ancient people removed from us by thousands of years and thousands of miles. The Scriptures include subtle culturally based nuances, undertones, and references to ancient events, literature and customs that were intuitively understood by those who first heard the Scriptures read. For us to hear the Scriptures as they did, we need a window into their world.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK 

This is the neatest Bible. All throughout the Bible you find insight into the customs, culture, and literature of Bible times. The pictures help make this Bible as well. I love the muted colors and the beige and brown theme throughout.

The Bible is hardcover with s beautiful dust jacket. If you enjoy studying the scriptures, this Cultural Backgrowns Bible will be a wonderful addition to your study tools. And if you have ever wondered about when something was written, or wondered what life was like in Bible times, this Bible may just been what you need. This book was given to me by BookLook Bloggers Review Program.

NIV Womens study bible

Bible Description

What is on your heart today? Struggles at home or with a friend? The miracle and joy of a new birth? A misunderstanding with a boyfriend or spouse? Are you grieving a loss? Are you celebrating a new job? Or anticipating a move? Whatever you face, good or bad, the Bible is relevant to your joys and sorrows, worries, fears, pain and happiness. God loves you and gave you his Word, the Bible, so you could know him more. The NIV Bible for Women contains an inspiring foreword by Shauna Niequist and writings by women who want to share their experiences—their joys and their struggles—with you. Authors such as Naomi Zacharias, Alyssa Joy Bethke, Caryn Rivadeneria, Rachel Held Evans, Katie Davis, Enuma Okoro, Kathy Khang, Laura Ortberg Turner, Kristen Howerton (Rage Against the Minivan), Margaret Feinberg, Tsh Oxenreider (TheArtofSimple), and Annie Downs share their thoughts on topics ranging from cultural issues like social justice, economic inequality, and social media addiction to personal needs like prayer, decision-making, relationships, infertility, career, and calling. These thought-provoking topics are easy to share on social networks to strengthen and inspire your circle of friends while creating meaningful conversation.

The NIV Bible for Women will help your time spent with God grow deeper and richer as you dig into his Word, bask in his love, learn his ways and then in turn share your journey with others in all the situations you face.

In every NIV Bible for Women:

  • Enter into the presence of God through the devotions each weekday and the Myths for each weekend for a full year of readings for your quiet time

  • Evaluate the culturally accepted myths that are presented in articles that challenge your previous notions with truth from God’s Word.
  • Utilize the topical index to enhance your personal study
  • Easily understand Scripture through the readability of the New International Version Bible (NIV)

Each of these devotions deal with situations and struggles that women face every day, helping you to apply these principles to your life through prayer and the Reflect questions.

NIV Real-Life Devotional Bible for Women Insights for Everyday Life, By Edited by Lysa TerKeurst

NIV Real-Life Devotional Bible for Women   

Insights for Everyday Life, By Edited by Lysa TerKeurst

NIV Real Life BIble for Women

Book Description

You spilled coffee on your shirt before walking out the door. Ran late to your appointment. Snapped at your children, then regretted it all day. And spent an hour at the grocery store with no dinner on the table to show for your efforts. A typical day has come and gone. Life is full of obligations, emotions, and relationships. Some are life-giving, yet sometimes the weight and responsibility of everyday life is heavy to bear. As wives, mothers, friends, and daughters, we need to know we’re not alone. We long for someone who understands—someone to help us find perspective. When our days are long, and our nights are restless, it’s easy to think we should be able to handle things on our own. Or that no one struggles like we do. And that’s when we need a friend … to encourage us, to understand us, and help us become the woman God wants us to be. You’ll find that friend on the pages of the NIV Real-Life Devotional Bible for Women. Filled with insightful daily devotions written by Lysa TerKeurst and the women at Proverbs 31 Ministries, the devotions in this Bible will meet you right where you are, in the good days and in the hard days, in the car pool line or the doctor’s office. With God’s truth as the foundation, this Bible will help you maintain a peace-filled place of balance in spite of your life’s hectic pace. Features: The beauty and clarity of the New International Version (NIV) Bible, 366 daily devotions from the women at Proverbs 31 Ministries inspire you to live authentically as a woman of God, Author biographies, and a helpful subject Index.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BIBLE

This is the most beautiful Bible inside and out! I love the color, the cover, the inside, and all of the study tools and study notes that are added for us ladies! Lysa TerKeurst has always been a favorite teacher of mine, well at least she has for a number of years. And having a Bible edited by her is an honor! This is just the Bible for busy women today! Ms. TerKeurst  and the women at Proverbs 31 Ministries have given us 366 daily devotions with Scripture verses that go along with the devotions. There is one for each day of the year, and I am glad they are not numbered because you can really start any you want and go straight through the book.

I highly recommend this really awesome Bible in its beautiful color. You will be blessed each day by the talented writings of these Godly ladies. I was given this Bible by BookLook Bloggers to read and review. I was not expected or required to write a positive review. The review here is  my own opinion.

This is yet another Bible that BookLook Bloggers have been showing for the past month or so. This one is the Maxwell Leadership Bible. I know a lot of people who really enjoy the teachings of John Maxwell, so this Bible will be one that they will sure enjoy. This copy is hardcover, it is green and white and very attractive to look at. It is the NIV, which I enjoy reading.

The one difference in this Bible is that John Maxwell provides an in-depth look at God’s laws for leaders and leadership, and all of the study tools in this Bible deal with leadership.

NIV Once-A-Day Bible for Women, Published by Zondervan

NIV Once-A-Day Bible for Women

Once a Day Bible for Women

Book Description

With this NIV Once-A-Day Bible for Women, you can read through the Bible in a year… or at your own pace. Now you can practice the spiritual discipline of daily Bible reading at your own pace. Want a reading plan that will take you through the Bible in a year? You got it—and check boxes too. Don’t want the guilt of falling behind in your daily reading? You won’t—each daily reading is numbered, not dated, allowing the flexibility you need as you strive to engage God’s Word every day. Looking for a Bible with insights about what you as a woman most need to hear? These are included as well in the intuitive, hopeful devotional thoughts located at the end of each daily reading. The NIV Once-A-Day Bible for Women organizes the clear, accessible New International Version Bible into 365 daily readings. Each day’s reading includes a portion of Scripture from the Old Testament, the New Testament, and a Psalm or a Proverb, followed by an encouraging devotional thought specifically written for women.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BIBLE

This is a really neat Bible! It has a daily Bible reading plan already mapped out for you. If you have been wanting to read through the Bible in a year, this would be an awesome way to do it. Each day it has verses/chapters already and each day’s reading includes a portion of Scripture from the Old Testament, the New Testament, and a Psalm or a Proverb. I like this because sometimes when we are reading parts of the Old Testament, we can loose sight of what we are reading, and with the Scriptures from the others parts of the Bible, this helps to stay focused on reading and what we are reading. This Pink Bible is especially for Women, and I enjoy having a pretty pink Bible to read and enjoy. Not that the color makes any difference, but its just nice. I encourage you to pick up a copy of this neat read-through-the-Bible to see what it is like for yourself!

NIV First-Century Study Bible Explore Scripture in Its Jewish and Early Christian Context

NIV First-Century Study Bible

Explore Scripture in Its Jewish and Early Christian Context

NIV First Centry Bible

 

The NIV First-Century Study Bible has a beautiful cover and is very attractive sitting on the shelves of stores everywhere! I thought this would be a really neat study Bible since it focuses exploring Scripture in its Jewish and early Christian context, but some of the notes, I’m just not sure about. There are a lot of interesting study tools in this Bible, the maps would be very helpful in studying the Early First-Centry, and I really enjoyed the pictures and drawings throughout. But I am just not sure this would be a Bible that I would use in my studies. But each person really needs to make the decision for themselves, so pick up a copy for yourself and see what you think!

 

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK!

I like the cover of this NIV Bible, but there are some notes that I don’t really feel they are accurate, or at least those involved in the note here doesn’t explain some of the Scripture very thorough. And apparently this is a newer NIV that the original NIV that came out years ago, and I am not sure I like this newer one. But I do like the pictures throughout the Bible and the nice maps are a good study aid.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BIBLE

Zondervan is really coming out with a Bible for everything, so if you haven’t found the right one for you yet, hang on, it will be here soon! I say this because I have having a good time being able to review some of their selections, and I am loving it! This Bible, The NIV Pink Bible is for those who have suffered or may be suffering at this time with breast cancer. This one is special for me because I have two aunts who lost their lives to breast cancer, and my mom and sister had it as well, but their treatments took care of it. I really like this Bible for so many reasons, But I love that it has so many verses for comfort and hope. Yes, you can find these verses in any Bible, but in this one they are set apart so that they can easily be found. If breast cancer has affected you, or someone you love, this would be an awesome gift for them! I highly encourage you to pick up a copy and give it as a gift. You will surely be blessed and you bless someone else with God’s Word!

Gardners Bible

 

ABOUT THIS BOOK

God will meet you personally in your garden… and in his. Throughout the Scriptures God has revealed spiritual truth in the language of growing things. This Bible will take you into a deeper relationship with God through the contemplation of soil and soul. The NIV God’s Word for Gardeners Bible will inspire you to seek God in a personal way through informative essays, devotional readings and prayers that explore the nature of the gardener’s work, the rewards of gardening, the influence of seasons and weather, and the joy of the harvest. In this Bible you will also find botanical-themed pages containing horticultural information for the prominent plants noted in Scripture and landscape-themed pages highlighting the main gardens and regions in which the events in the Bible took place. Draw near to the One whose garden is planted with delight—in you!

Features: * 260 daily devotions and 52 weekend readings arranged in weekly themes and placed near relevant passages in the text to explore the biblical metaphors of gardens and gardening * Beautiful, durable hardcover * Topical Index (for 52 weeks) * Special sections on the Garden of Eden, the garden of Gethsemane and Jesus the Vine

 

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

If you are a gardener, You will enjoy this new Bible from Zondervan. It is designed to help you follow your Bible reading and do your gardening together. One thing I found interesting is that there are 260 daily readings and 52 weekly readings and the passages in the Bible and the devotions go along with gardening. There is a special section about The Garden of Eden, as well as sections on Jesus’ Last Supper teaching on the vine, and The Book or Revelations and the urban Gardens. This was interesting to me because I haven’t thought about Gardens in the Bible, and even though I’ve read these verses, I really didn’t apply them to gardens. And the 52 week topical index focuses on garden interest.

I highly recommend this Bible to those who enjoy gardening. The front cover is beautiful and you will enjoy the green color used as captions throughout this Bible.

I hope you will give this Bible a try, and I hope you like it as much as I do. I received this Bible from BookLook Bloggers to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review.

NIV The Journey Bible

Revealing God and How You Fit into His Plan

 

The Journey Bible

ABOUT THIS BIBLE

“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”—Jeremiah 29:13

The NIV Journey Bible is uniquely designed to help readers discover the practical aspects of Christianity and better understand God. Patterned after the Willow Creek model of ministry and intended for those in the investigative stage of their spiritual journey, The Journey’s exploratory approach addresses key questions inquisitive readers may have about the Bible and its relevance today. Notes and insights are woven throughout the complete NIV Bible text, drawing readers into the message and pointing the way to a relationship with Jesus. Icons trace six seeker themes throughout Scripture: “Discovering God,” “Addressing Questions,” “Strengthening Relationships,” “Reasons to Believe,” “Knowing Yourself,” and “Managing Resources.” Also included in The Journey are introductory articles that define key concepts involved in being a spiritually open person, book introductions, indexes, a dictionary/concordance, and a “Fire Alive” reading plan covering Genesis, Deuteronomy, John, Acts, and Romans.

The Journey can be used as an evangelism tool and makes a perfect gift for new believers and those looking for answers to life’s deepest questions. It is also a helpful guide for veteran Christians who want a refreshing perspective on the basics of their belief.

 

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BIBLE

When I first saw this Bible, I wasn’t sure if it was a good one or not, but the more I read through it, the more I like it. There are many study tools in this Bible that can be used to better you knowledge of the Bible. I want to list a few things that caught my eye when I opened this book. One is the unique introduction to each chapter, at the end of each chapter there is a real life, up to date in todays world story that can be applied to the Book of the Bible that you have read. The Five Alive reading plan is for 30 days. At first I wondered why a years reading plan wasn’t offered, but then I thought, a thirty day plan will be easier to stick too, and if those people who don’t read their Bibles can stay with the plan for 30 days, then they might try another 30 days. Of course I don’t really know if this is the reason for Five Alive and its meaning, but its my ideal anyway! The front of the Bible is a picture of a walk, giving a feeling of walking with Jesus through this Bible. I love the Apicture on the front, and the same picture is on the introduction page of the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. And I like the notes throughout this Bible that seven ‘explore’ themes. There are so many more things I can say about this Bible that I like, but you get the picture from what I have said already.

I hope you will give this Bible a try, and I hope you like it as much as I do. I received this Bible from BookLookBloggers to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review.
