Format: Hardcover
1. <em>The Mosaic Bible</em> is actually two books under one cover. It is a 52 week devotional resource keyed to the Christian year using art, quotations and extended selections from a broad sampling of Christian traditions on every continent, tradition and period of history. The second book is a two column NLT Bible, with center references, an excellent concordance, a Greek/Hebrew dictionary, maps and other helpful materials in most standard Bibles. These two books use different kinds of paper and are easily distinguished for one another. I was particularly glad that these materials are separated, because I do not want a Bible to look like a workbook or anything other than a text of Holy Scripture.

2. <em>Mosaic</em> is heavily graphical, with a generous sampling of Christian symbolism and an excellent selection of Christian art. All the artistic and literary resources are listed in an index. There is an intentional effort to capture an ecumenical, pan-traditional look that some might call "post evangelical" or "emerging." Some may find this trendy. It is well-done and a pleasure to work through.<!--more-->

3. The diversity of resource selections is truly wide ranging, from Athanasius to Brian Maclaren, classic to contemporary, Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox, Anabaptist, etc.

4. The Christian year is the key to the weekly devotions and studies. For those who seriously are at variance with high levels of denominationalism, the <em>Mosaic Bible</em> will be particularly appreciated. For those operating in a particular tradition, there is a need for more resources. Perhaps this can be addressed in future editions. (Tyndale- call me :-)

The Bible comes in 2 bindings, one hardcover and one softcover with a leather like feel. Some time back, when quality reproductions of the Geneva (mid-16th English bible) was being made, they offered it in a similar binding. It was meant to give a historic feel to it, and that feel is felt with the leather-life cover of the Mosaic. The bible is thick (almost two inches), but fits nicely in the hand of a preacher of a lay person - ministers, indeed, all. While the hardback is designed according to the name this edition, the soft cover is dark brown with a Celtic cross on the spin. The added feature of the for the hardback is the Apostle's Creed on the back cover. Either edition is nice one to have.

The bible lays flat when it is open, for the most part, but I imagine that with just a little use, it will be able to stretch.

The Scriptures themselves are, of course, the NLTse from 2007 (which saw the translation become steadily more literal, without sacrificing clarity, than the 1996 translation), and generally left alone. By which, I mean, that unlike other bibles, the devotional materials are placed in the front. In my opinion, this helps to elevate the Scriptures themselves, as something perfect, with no added detail, and is a feature, I believe, could be looked for in future bibles. The Scriptures open with a note to the readers and the standard Introduction to the New Living Translation as well as the bible translation team. From what I can see, this is pretty standard fare for the NLT bibles. This bible, however, has a center column reference system (and note to the readers). It is scientific, pointed, with the cross references, as many other bibles have, pointing to relevant passages.

Format: Hardcover
The title of this Bible comes from the definition of a mosaic itself. As described in the "Mosaic User's Guide:

"Mosaics are curious things. Bits and pieces of stone and glass that on their own may be interesting, but only fleetingly so. Together, however, those pieces form images that move us in unexpected and profound ways. From the simplest forms to the most complex, it is the combined effect of tiles arranged in their diversity that brings about something much greater than the sum of its parts. ... But as Christians, we are part of something much larger than simply the here and now. We are part of a mosaic--a patchwork of people, places, times, and cultures--that depicts one person: Jesus Christ. ... The purpose of this Bible is to provide a way to encounter Christ on every continent and in every century of Christian history. ... [Y]ou will find an extensive block of weekly meditations that draw on the collective wisdom of the global church across two thousand years of history, which will engage your heart and mind and guide you back into God's life-changing word."

And that's what the Mosaic Bible does: it incorporates Christian voices from two thousand years of history and from all over the world. These voices are collected into a series of readings that are organized around the Christian year. Now, I'll admit up front, that growing up in Southern Baptist churches, I've never formally celebrated the Christian year in any meaningful way. When Kathy and I moved to Kentucky, I noticed that many of the Baptist churches recognized Advent, and a small few observed Lent, but most did not. In fact, I only observed Lent--in a very clumsy way, miind you--for the first time this past year.
