*I received a complimentary copy of this Bible from Zondervan in exchange for my honest review.
I am a big fan of Drs. Cloud and Townsend. I have heard both speak and am presently listening to Boundaries on audiobook.
When I saw this Bible, I was very intrigued. I wanted to see how they would incorporate their teachings into study notes within a Bible. They did an excellent job.
Their “insights” notes were very practical and easy to understand. Plus they would link their notes with a particular passage of Scripture. Not only did this add a application element but it also shows how Scripture is still relevant in the area of personal relationships and growth.
The next thing I noticed was that the Bible was not that heavy. This makes it an excellent option for devotionals and meditation.
The one thing I did notice was that the introduction to each book was brief. I was hoping for more of “look here for personal applications sections” but none was to be found. To be fair the index was very helpful but it would still be nice to have some direction at the introduction for each book.
That all said, this Bible is an excellent resource that the graduating class of 2014 would do well to have. Practical and resourceful, this Bible would aid many in life’s journey.
