Item description for Me I Want To Be: Teen Edition by john ortberg, Dallas Willard & Eugene H. Peterson...
Overview In this major new Bible, the foremost names in Christian spirituality and biblical scholarship, including Richard Foster, Dallas Willard, Eugene Peterson and Walter Brueggemann, come together to provide a unique study Bible that rediscovers Scripture as living and active text of spiritual formation. NRSV translation.
In this five-session small group Bible study DVD, The Me I Want to Be Teen Edition, John Ortberg reveals how there s a real you (the one God intended) hiding under the one you pretend to be.
There is a God (it isn t you). Your life is a project (it isn t yours). The real you is waiting (it isn t hard).
God s best version of you is waiting. But first, John Ortberg has two very important questions:
Are you REALLY LIVING? (Full of joy and peace, in harmony with God, others and self; curious, willing to learn and experience opportunities to grow toward the best version of yourself)
Are you DECAYING? (Lacking mental and emotional energy, feeling uneasy and not very content, too self-focused)
In his usual style, Ortberg has some intriguing answers to those questions in this study and will help you gauge your spiritual health and deal with real issues you face as a teen in today s world.
Underneath the me you pretend to be (the one that acts cool while fearing you re not) and the me you fail to be (the one that doesn t always feel very excited about life) you will discover something remarkable
This DVD is designed for use together with The Me I Want to Be Teen Edition Participant's Guide and book (each sold separately). It features five 10 to 15-minute live teaching sessions from John Ortberg. It is an excellent study for teen small groups and youth groups.
Sessions include: 1. Discovering the Spirit 2. Renewing My Mind 3. Redeeming My Time 4. Deeping My Relationships 5. Transforming My Experience"

review of the Renovare Bible Jan 9, 2007
This Bible is a perfect compliment to my spiritual direction of practicing the deeper Christian walk through the disciplines of the faith. I have read all the authors that contributed to this verson and respect their wisdom and scholarship and Christian personal lives.
Great Gift for Yourself or Others Jan 3, 2007
We used this book for a gift for a high school graduate and will use it again with future graduates. It was also recommended by our pastor. The commentary is excellent for young people seeking to make their way through the world in a way that is pleasing to God.
What a pleaure Sep 4, 2006
Having this provides one with a fine translation and solid opportunity for interpretation and application.
I was leary about the last part, since often that can be sappy. Not so here.
Selecting a Bible is hard. I have decided that for me, a hard bound book is best and worth any extra cost. Get one like this and add tabs. It is one big book.
Shortcoming: No index. But with so much else, an index may have been hard to add.
A great find after much looking.
Spirituality Aug 6, 2006
The Spiritual Formation Bible is enlightening - with tons of insights, prayer suggestions etc. A great Bible for your study or for just reading.
It's ok..but Feb 14, 2006
The notes are good, the material is good, but I don't know, I felt like I was still lacking something.
If I were you, I'd just invest in some Renovare books on spiritual development instead. Sure it's more expensive, but it's worth it.
Start with devotional or spiritual classics. You get alot of content for a low price.
Then get spirit of the disciplines.
For more indepth stuff get renovation of the heart, or the divine conspiracy.
Read those books along with your regular bible. You'll get more depth than what's in here.
