A Bible To Hold Your Interest Mar 18, 2007
I love how there are articles to provide additional knowledge to the time periods depicted and paintings featured illustrating Biblical history. The CEV translation is very readable and I feel most comfortable with this version. The only thing I don't like is that this Bible is bulky, a drawback if you are running out the door to church or Bible study. I wish it came in paperback. I have one for my son and one for me.
This is the most beautiful bible I have ever seen Mar 16, 2007
Wow ... the ancient biblical times come alive with color photographs, illustrations, encyclopedia-like references, and simple to read English for anyone interested in Christianity. Even an atheist or an agnostic who wants an academic and anthropological view of Judeo-Christian theology would find this an excellent learning guide.
The Bible has been translated and edited and politics has influenced it. I won't deny that nor will I refute that when the Christians aligned with the Roman empire there wasn't another influence in theology. But if you can get past all that ... and all the revisions in the Council of Nicea ... what we do have is a portal into a world whose wisdom remains valid in modern times.
Besides ... this is akin to an adult picture book bible story group and the stories come alive.
CEV Learning Bible is great! Feb 13, 2007
I teach 12 and 13 year-olds and have found I have less explaining of words to do with the CEV than with my previous favorite, the NIV. The side notes are useful for them and the reference to certain maps and other mini-articles is a good learning tool. The pictures are of good quality and their captions enhance the theme. However, I miss an extensive cross-reference and concordance of the NIV study Bible when I prepare for leading an adult's Bible Study. The adult participants are very impressed with the CEV and don't notice the lack of references. And, there is no need for weight-lifting after taking this Bible out.
The Best! Jan 15, 2007
I have acquired many Bibles over the years, but this one is the best by far. The CEV translation is the first that has brought the Word to life for me. The words are words that I use everyday and absolutely nothing is lost in the translation. The "reader helps" that are in the Learning Bible are basic enough for the new christian yet informative enough for an "old pro". This is a gem waiting to be discovered and I am grateful every day that I did.
Great Learning Bible Jan 11, 2007
Easy to read and understand. Lots of interesting facts. Great Bible for a new Christian to read and learn by.
