Great quality. The leather is soft and the size is perfect for me. The lettering is clear and easy to read. The design is clean and beautiful. Excellent bible for devotional use or for a gift. I've been waiting for a Bible like this! I'm so glad that the folks at Group Publishing followed the prompting of God to take on this project!!
I am reminded of this quote when I think of the JCB...
“but do you not know that from every little town and village and tiny hamlet in England there is a road leading to London? Whenever I get hold of a text, I say to myself, ‘There is a road from here to Jesus Christ, and I mean to keep on His track till I get to Him.'” -CH Spurgeon, The Soul Winner.
This is going to be a great resource in my personal time with God. If you are looking for a new Bible and you like the NLT this will be great.
• Blue letters in the OT pointing to Jesus (this is such a great idea, how has this never been done before?)
• Comments and micro commentary (study notes)
• Nice size and feel
• Gilded edges are fantastic
• Page feel A+++
• Not large print but not too small, it is easy to read
• I was going to give the Jesus-Centered Bible one star because of one huge oversight, this Bible only has ONE BUILT IN BOOKMARK!!!! There is so much amazing content here how am I expected to get by with only one bookmark?
• If I seriously had to pick it apart I guess I would like for more options...Sizes, covers (leather, cheaper paperback), NIV or ESV.
Pros (Why You Should Get It)
1) Blue-Letter Text:
This has to be one of the coolest new feature that was added to the bible that I have seen In a while. The Jesus Centered -Bible highlights blue letters to point out reference to Jesus throughout the Old Testament. Overall, they hightlighted 700 letter text blue. On a sidenot, the editors suggested to it's readers when they read to do so using a blue high lighter.
Also, in the New Testament, we do see Red Ink. However, in other bibles, the Red Ink stop after the Gospels and the start of Acts. However, this bible team decided to weave the "red thread" of Jesus through the rest of the New Testament by highlighting in red everytime HIS name is mention.
2. Jesus In Every Book
Think about this for a second. The bible says you must confuse with your heart that Jesus is your personal savior. This bible would let me meet Jesus in a new insightful way. Jesus is our promised Messiah, the one who will save us, and his story is thread that runs through all of Scriptures. His influence doesn't began in Matthew; however, in Genesis we can meet him for the very first time.
3) Re-framing Jesus Insights.
Along with the 700 blue letter text, there is 150 Reforming Jesus Insights. The R.J.I. offer interesting context, great backstories, and penetrating theological insights that highlight the beauty of Jesus threaded through Scripture.
4.The Jesus Questions (TJQ)
One tool that this bible used is to ask over 100 questions... questions about relationship with Him. Every questions were designed to help you slow down and chew on a truth about Jesus and how you relate to him-- and to get you thinking after you moved on. Since I'm a nice guy, I will will give you simple questions:
A)In General, what makes some people open to Jesus, and others closed off to him. The Answer in (1 Corinthian 16:9.)
B)Why hadn't Jesus told us the specific time of his return. (The answer in 1 Thess 5:1-11)
5. Jesus answers life questions....
-What's my purpose?
-Will everything be alright?
-Is God Real?
6. There's an NLT Dictionary/Concordance, and Read The Bible In A Year Plan.
1) Text Front is too small for someone with advance eyes.
2) Only come in a 3 formats (Hardcover, Charcoal and Turquoise Imitation Leather).
3)This bible do not offer any maps.
If I were you, I would get this bible now. My guess is that later they would make a better format of this bible. Maybe I will love for them to make one with size 12 front Genuine Leather Indexed. I believe that would be an great seller.
