Item description for The Life with God Bible by Richard F. Foster, Dallas Willard & Walter Brueggemann...

Overview
Many people are looking for a fresh way to read the Bible, not as a text to be mastered, but as a story to enter into and a lifestyle to pursue. In this unique Bible, the foremost names in Christian spirituality and biblical scholarship come together to provide a Bible that rediscovers Scripture as living text, rich with insights into how to live our lives more intimately with God.

Spearheaded by bestselling authors Richard J. Foster (Celebration of Discipline) and Dallas Willard (The Divine Conspiracy), The Life With God Bible introduces the concept of the ?with-God life,? a model for seeing the whole of Scripture as the unfolding story of God?s plan for our loving relationship with the Creator. This central theme weaves throughout the essays, introductions, notes, and exercises, powerfully revealing how God is present to his people today and throughout history.

Yet our relationship with God should not be passive. Concrete practices?Spiritual Disciplines?have been used throughout church history to guide disciples of Jesus. This Bible integrates the Spiritual Disciplines into the Christian life by showing how they are central to the Bible?s teachings and stories. Abraham and Ruth, Moses and Deborah, Jesus and the disciples all provide amazing examples of the life-changing power of prayer, worship, fasting, celebration, and many other Spiritual Disciplines. Scripture thus becomes a primary means for the discovery, instruction, and practice of these disciplines as well as a tool for spiritual formation.

Combining the highest possible biblical scholarship with the deepest possible heart devotion, this new Bible project seeks to nourish inner transformation by unlocking and revealing the profound resources within Scripture for changing our hearts and characters and bringing them in line with what God wants for our lives. Previously released as The Renovare Spiritual Formation Bible, The Life With God Bible will redefine what the Bible means for Christian discipleship.

Available in a Hardcover edition and in specialty Compact editions.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Life with God Bible?

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.
