Holy Bible: The tale of two gods.
I have always been a fan of Old Testament god. He is the kind of fellow you can believe in. . . or else. Philistine's move into your neighborhood? Don't worry, the big guy has your back. He'll send his favorite son David to cut off two hundred of their foreskins and present them to the then king in exchange for stealing his wife. If that doesn't motivate you to convert to the bible's deity of choice, I don't know what will.
The methods of retribution are creativ ...more
And, this is the one I was presented with when I was confirmed Catholic.
Yes, I've actually read all three. And studied them through various theological courses.
I hate that the author is "Anonymous"; I call him God.
THIS particular Bible, I'm reviewing both the translation (NASB) and the publisher (Cambridge). I love the Old English of other translations (Douay Rheims, KJV, ESV), but the New American Stand ...more
NASB is my favorite translation because (1) it's the most literal, and I am an extremely literal person, (2) it's so poetic, especially through Psalms and Proverbs and the major prophets, (3) it's the easiest version to memorize.
If you aren't head over heels in love with the Lord, start reading your bibl ...more
The Bible IS amazing. It is full of 'impossible' prophesies like the city of Tyre being destroyed and (if I remember correctly) it had recorded in it, information on the Assyrian Empire long before we even discovered ruins from Assyria.
I find the prophesy on Tyre the most fascinating one (Ezekiel 26:3-21) where it says:
"...therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against you, Tyre, and I will bring many nations against you, like the sea casting up its waves. They will
The cover of this Compact Bible is made from Leathertex, an artificial leather which is soft to the touch. This Leathertex edition has a very nice smooth feel, which my husband really likes the feel of. Artificial leather should prove to be close in durability to bonded leather, although they haven't been on the market long enough to know for sure.

What the NASB lacks in readability (and I would characterize that liability as slight), it makes up for in accuracy. While no translation is truly "word-for-word", any word deliberately inserted for clarity that ...more
The Holy Bible is the love letter from God to us. He used several people to write the Bible in order to show His love for all His creation. And it is with honour that I finished reading this love letter for the third time and I would also like to encourage you to do the same.
"In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth"
This is Genesis 1:1.
God has started His creation. He created everything that your eyes can and cannot see. He also created the man and the woman, Adam and Eve. And He ...more
No matter what your background or worldview, this book is a must read. It is easily the most studied/challenged book ever written, not to mention the one that has had the biggest impact on world history. It tells the story of God's relationship to humankind, how the first humans chose to turn their backs on God so He designed a way to restore the relationship back to what it was meant to be. As a section in John explains, "For God so loved the world that He sent His only Son (Jesus), that whoev ...more

It doesn't seem to matter how many times I read the Bible, it doesn't matter how often I read those last words in Revelation "The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen." The next morning I open it again, usually a different translation, but once again I read the words "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth" I'm pulled in all over again. And now it's time to s ...more
All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.
For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
I don't mind the formal-equivalent/literal style of it. Inevitably it leads to a little awkwardness at times, but I consider this a price worth paying. The reasoning behind it is to cleave as closely as possible to the original languages and texts, and interpose as little hermeneutical distance between the reader and writer as possible. Unfortunately, this purpose is completely betrayed by some editoria ...more

The Bible was created by God. Genesis shows the creation of the Earth and how what we are came to be. The book starts with God creating the universe and creating the first two humans. He created a garden for them and told them not to eat from the forbidden tree inside. The snake tempted them and they ate, soon realizing their mistake. They hid from God and he punished them.
This book falls into historical nonfiction because the creation ...more
Reading the Bible is really difficult to do, especially with all those "begots," so this version makes it doable! Each day includes 2 readings, between old & new testaments with psalms scattered in there.
I would recommend you have another, preferably physical, copy of the Bible for those times when you get caught up in the one story & don't want to jump back to the other. This version ...more
