I have experience with Bibles---I completed seminary in May of 2013 and graduated with honors with a Masters of Divinity. This doesn't make me "all that" but you should know to whom you are speaking and whether they might actually know what they are talking about !!
All the verses, all the notations, all the pericopes, all the chopping up of the books and paragraphs and all the extraneous stuff and artificial divisions have been completely removed from this Bible leaving the Word of God to shine forth for you to see as God gave it to His servants. It is AMAZING !!! It reads like the most fascinating story you have (n)ever read !! Forget flogging yourself to "read my Bible verse today", get it done and go back to life as usual.
This Bible has put the First Testament back into the way Jews would have heard it orally. And the arrangement of the First Testament is so logical and flows so beautifully that it is impossible to put it down. The prophets who were contemporaries of each other are actually grouped together so you can clearly see what what happening historically. AND they are grouped roughly in chronological order.
The New Testament starts off with Luke-Acts as one book, as it always should have been. It puts all the writings of Paul roughly into the order in which Paul wrote them! You can SEE clearly how Paul grew in his understanding of the things of God!! For example, Paul had already been through trials with his flock from Thessalonica, Corinth and Galatia BEFORE he wrote Romans.
When you see the Word in this way, revelation just flows.
The introductions to the books are simply , concise and profound beyond any I have seen.
I would NEVER give a new Christian any other Bible than this one to start with.
God bless you all !!
Why I did not give it 5 stars: This is an NIV translation. While the NIV is certainly more reliable that any paraphrased version of the Bible, I personally prefer the English Standard Version. I am hopeful that Crossways (the publisher of the ESV) will someday realize that there is a market for a Bible without verses and section headings/breaks.
Secondly, I was hoping for a reorganization of the New Testament into chronological order by when the books were written. I understand it would be rather easy to just read them in chronological order, but it would be nice to have them bound in that order for a linear-fluidity. Don't get me wrong though, the way this book has reorganized the New Testament is very purposeful, reverent to the text and ultimately better than the traditional order.
