NIV Bible for Men Fresh Insights for Thriving in Today’s World

NIV Bible for Men 

Fresh Insights for Thriving in Today’s World

NIV bible for men

Book Description

A much-needed devotional Bible designed for a new generation of young adult men.

Combining the current writings of key young authors and pastors with a clean, accessible design, the NIV Devotional Bible for Men fills a critical gap in the Bible marketplace: a highly approachable yet spiritualty challenging Bible targeted specifically at young adult men.

This compelling new Bible speaks to the topics, challenges, and expectations that will instantly connect with men ages 18-34. It covers such critical issues as career, sexuality, leadership, pornography, relationships, financial stability, spiritual growth, substance addiction, culture, character, education, self-image and more. Each of the 260 devotions is carefully designed to ensure extensive, sustainable immersion into God’s Word, leading to meaningful life impact.

Sensitive to the technologically connected, time-starved lifestyles of today, the NIV Devotional Bible for Men offers the quick impact and deep spiritual engagement that young men can’t get with any other Bible.

NIV Devotional Bible for Men features include:

  • 260 devotions of 600-800 words apiece
  • 2 methods to engage: reading through the Bible canonically from Genesis to Revelation or topically, using the topical index
  • “Leveled” Scripture engagement that allows readers to choose between 1-minute, quick topic summaries or deeper, 10-minute devotional experiences
  • Devotions from young pastors and leaders such as Matt Chandler, Shane Claiborne, Craig Gross, Gabe Lyons and Jud Wilhite
  • 52 “Myth Articles” state commonly accepted myths in our culture today, then refute those myths with answers from God’s Word.

 

My Review

There are many Bibles on the market today, and I really like being able to review different ones. This one is a nice NIV Devotional Bible with the devotions written with men involved. There are 260 unique devotions that cover issues men struggle with in their everyday life. Another thing I found unique is the 52 myths that are listed in this book. Myths like “My anger is justified”, and this list the myth, as well as insights into what you can do to help you realize what it wrong with these myths.

I really like this new NIV Bible for me, and I highly recommend it for all men wanting to strengthen their Bible study and devotions. There are many insights in the Bible to help you grow in the Word!

Amish Christmas at North Star by Four Great Authors

Amish Christmas at North Star

amish christmas north star

On a snowy night in late November, 1990, Rebekah Schlaback’s home was bursting with excitement and tension because four very pregnant young women were there for Rebekah to deliver their precious little one. These four stories generated from that night; Guiding Star, by Katie Ganshert, Morning Star, by Amanda Flower, In the Stars, by Cindy Woodsmall and Star of Grace by Mindy Starns Clark  and Emily Clark.

Each story was written about one of those four babies born 25 years earlier. I am glad I had time to read each story without putting the book down, because they had me guessing until the end. I highly recommend this wonderful book of four stories written around the Christmas Season. Stories that will warm your heart and find a place there.

NIrV Beginner’s Bible Devotional Pack Published by Zondervan

 NIrV Beginner’s Bible Devotional Pack

Published by Zondervan

devotional pack

Book Description

Bestselling The Beginner’s Bible brand pack for young readers that includes the complete New International Reader’s Version Holy Bible, and 365-day devotional.

This pack contains a hardcover full-text Bible and a softcover 365-day devotional.

Based on The Beginner’s Bible brand, the NIrV Beginner’s Bible, Holy Bible is a perfect first Bible for a child. With easy-to-read print and full-page illustrations, children will better understand stories in Scripture. Using the complete text of the New International Reader’s Version (NIrV), this Bible pairs beautifully with The Beginner’s Bible: Kid-Sized Devotions to encourage lifelong Bible reading habits. Simple connections to Scripture make the content relevant and understandable for young readers. Each of the 365 devotions has a theme to which the Bible passage, story and art relate. The NIrV Beginner’s Bible Devotional Pack is a perfect starting point for children as they develop a stronger relationship with God, to cuddle-up with parents or enjoy at church or daycare.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BIBLE/DEVOTIONAL

This is an awesome Bible/Devotional set for children. I was very surprised and pleased when I rec’d this. It is much nicer than I expected.  The Bible is a full text Bible, written in a little larger font to make it easier to read. And the NIrV has not notes, which makes it great for reading only. The Devotional is adorable. It has a verse for each 365 day of the year, and the devotion is a small paragraph. When my 6 year old niece saw this she immediately started reading the devotions. I love that it is simple enough that she could read it at six years old, yet it is the same Bible promises and truths that we read every day.

If you are looking for a new Bible and Devotional for your child, this is the one to check out. You will not be disappointed in this one!  I received this book from BookLook BLoggers to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

This is a great Bible that any young girl would love to carry. The cover is beautiful, love the colors and graphics. And the best part I think is the magnetic flap to keep the Bible closed.
