Review: The Way (NLT Bible)
Author: Mark Oestreicher (Editor)
Short Book Description:
The Way connects a restless generation, a generation looking for direction, to Jesus – the Way, the Truth, and the Life. It uses first-person stories, reflections, and questions which bring the Bible to the real world.
Today’s 16–30 year olds are looking for connection to something bigger than themselves. They want something that works and is honest, authentic. Something that they can actually experience. Something that gives them hope.
The Way offers a way that works. A way that matters. A way that asks them to step up to something important enough—big enough—to live for. It’s a visual, textual, and interactive experience for a generation that has blurred the boundaries of media. It’s an interactive experience for those ready for collaboration, change, and a challenge.
The set-up is good. I hadn’t read this translation before; I prefer to stick with the KJV. The publishers have put stories by other people in by some of the chapters of what those verses mean to them. All in all it is a good Bible to have.
I have used this bible quite a bit since I received it and have fallen in love with it. The only thing I don’t really care for is the thinness of the pages. But other than that, I really like it. I received an advanced reader’s edition so I have no idea how the covers on the published ones are, but I love the one mine came with.
The book falls open and stays on the page where you open it up to, which I really like since lots of bibles don’t do that.
I would recommend this bible to anyone that is looking for a new version to try out or is looking for a new bible in this version.
