This new Bible is the best I have seen. I love the Hope Notes they are just the perfect thing to give me a lift when I need one. And help to get my perspective back in line. Highly recommended! It is made simple.

Joel Osteen and his team have made a difference in my life and how I nourish my spiritual needs. He has made me stronger and far better equipped to deal with the challenges in my life.

I appreciate his work and am grateful for his energies! He makes it fun and I always come away stronger. God Bless their messages!

Thank you for reading this review and you too should receive a blessing - on that note go out and have a good day.

This Bible is what it says it is. A New Living translation Bible, with notes and encouragement by Joel and Victoria Osteen. It's probably designed for people that attend Lakewood Church, or have a sympathy in that direction. But anyone could buy it and enjoy it.

I watch Joel Osteen and I like his messages. He's not theologically perfect, but nobody is. If you're looking for that, just buy a plain Bible without any extras, and good luck. Personally I like the extras in this Bible. And I wouldn't have a problem giving it or recommending it to any Christian of any denomination. I don't think it would offend anyone and the encouragements are such that, a lot of people now would likely be very blessed by them. People need encouragement.

The print type is 12pt and easy to read, with ample space to annotate. The intros and insets are well done. There are lots of helps, reading plans, prayer sections, etc. but for all of that, it's not a huge, heavy Bible. The people at Free Press did an excellent job with design and I enjoy reading it.

I will say that I'm not a huge fan of New Living Translation, but I've at least 25 bibles that I can cross-compare if I wanted to. And, despite that, I've found that many of the NLT passages spoke to me anew because I was open to hearing them expressed in a new way. After reading it for a month or so, this bible has won me over. I rarely use or refer to the others.

It would be an excellent purchase for long-time Christians, or brand new Christians. Probably not good for anyone that's hyper-sure their theology is perfect and the only way to heaven, or has a problem with non-KJV bibles.

I was introduced to the works of Norman Vincent Peale many years ago. NVP offered many of the same prescriptions back in the WWII era. That was a difficult time for America. And God raised up a man for a time like that. Today, America is again in a difficult period. And God has given us another inspiring preacher who has tapped into our current problems, and given us hope and the power to overcome them. Joel Osteen and wife Victoria have created an amazing resource that addresses every conceivable topic and problem in a way that is fresh and grounded in God's Word. The layout of this Bible is impressive. There are so many helps and annotations that you can't help but be inspired. The choice of the NLT was smart as well. It makes Bible reading easier without dumbing down the language. It also makes studying these concepts much more enjoyable. Osteen's critics like to rail against his preaching style, or the lack of Biblical teaching. I have found no evidence that this is true. Osteen grounds his teaching in the Scriptures. He's the most popular preacher in America, so he's a target. Well, he's the wrong target. God is using Lakewood Church and the Osteens to bless and help many people.

I really enjoy and appreciate a bible that is written in more contemporary language to be easier to understand God's word. In addition to being exactly that and also having Jesus' words in red ink (another personal preference for myself) - this bible provides amazing Bible reading plans, a considerable section of topics and relevant verses. It also included introductions before each book with some great insights about the book following and highlights to connect verse(s) with today's life and world. Joel and Victoria created an awesome Bible that I enthusiastically enjoy reading!

When I was young I always considered the Bible a history book. I now know it is a "How to live my life manual. The Hope for Today Bible is a wonderful resource that I am using daily. The New Living Translation is easy for everyone to understand. It provides reading plans that are not overwhelming. The notes and encouragements from Joel and Victoria are like listening to them speak. Their HOPE commentary is inspiring, filled with love and brings meaning to the chapters of the Bible. This is not a Bible that will end up on the shelf! I recommend this Hope for Today Bible to all as a part of your daily faith journey. Enjoy!!!

I am a huge fan of the Osteens and I was happy to hear about thus Bible. I love the way it is broken down into ways the average person can understand. Everything is straightforward and the added notes from Joel and Victoria help to give you something extra to think about and to learn from. This is a great addition for any positive thinking person who is also trying to grow closer to God and the understanding of his word. My husband and I love this Bible
