is, of course, the Bible. Rather than offering a straightforward interpretation of the original Greek and Hebrew texts, Tyndale House Publishers has assembled an easy-to-reference volume, making it accessible to newcomers as well as scholars. In the front section, readers will find a selection of excerpts that speak to life's major issues and concerns, such as "Anger," "Discouragement," "Fear," and "Loneliness." The Book
also includes excerpts that speak to relationships, such as love, friends, marriage, and parenthood. An opening section titled "Where Can I Find It?" lists where to locate favorite Bible stories, including "The Prodigal Son" and "The Golden Rule." It even has a reference section devoted to "Great Chapters from the Book," citing chapters such as "A Time for Everything," and "The Holy Spirit Comes." This is one of the most highly recommended and user-friendly bibles available.

Many different translations of the Bible were considered for this volume. The New Living Translation was chosen because it is the easiest-to-understand, accurate translation available. First published in 1996, the New Living Translation is the work of 90 Bible scholars over a seven-year period. It is the fastest growing Bible translation and is expected to become the standard for the Christian church for the next century.
Read what The Book
has to say about itself:
- Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. Psalm 119:105
- All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It straightens us out and teaches us to do what is right. It is God’s way of preparing us in every way, fully equipped for every good thing God wants us to do. 2 Timothy 3:16-17
- For the word of God is full of living power. It is sharper than the sharpest knife, cutting deep into our innermost thoughts and desires. It exposes us for what we really are. Hebrews 4:12
- The rain and snow come down from the heavens and stay on the ground to water the earth. They cause the grain to grow, producing seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry. It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it. Isaiah 55:10-11
