This is the only book I've read through cover to cover more than twice. It is the only book I read every day. There isn't enough room to tell what I've learned from it.

Here is a list of my favorites from The Bible:
Favorite Psalms - Psalms 32
Favorite Judge - Deborah
Favorite Proverb - Chapter 30
Favorite Pentateuch - Deuteronomy
Favorite Military Leader - Joshua
Favorite Priest - Samuel
Favorite Major Prophet (in terms of documents written) - Daniel
Favorite Minor Prophet - Zechariah
Favorite King -

This is probably still my favorite translation of the Bible it was the first one I read through, cover to cover from front to back that is. Most of the mistranslations of the original KJV have been corrected while the flavor and poetry of the 1611 language are still there. (though sadly there are a couple of places where the "Authorized King James" got it right and the NKJ mistranslated) This is an attempted word for word translation much like the RSV and ASV (also New Revised Standard and New A ...more

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

It took me about a year but this was by far the best book I have read and will ever read it has every kind of story in it you could look for, true stories, figurative stories fantacies very very good. I recomend all to read at least LEAST once in there life time there is a reason it is called the best story ever told.

INTRODUCTION

In a season of inspiration, I read the Bible (“New International Version”) cover-to-cover, just a little bit each day, over the course of almost two years when I was 19-20. I don’t recommend reading any book this way, especially one with as many characters and story lines as the Bible. In truth, I’m still not sure how much I got out of it, but like the very last straggler crossing the finish line in a marathon, I’ll claim my “read” status, even if it should bear some sort of asterisk

Yes, I know, I'm surely going to hell for giving the Bible only 4 stars. But some of it is really hard to get through.

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.
Nickwill2001
I learned about my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Also, the source of life, the result of the fall, the redemptive love of God, how to live, how to love, how to die, what happens afterward, and the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit.

I can really say that it's the only "must read" out there. If you don't have one, get one!
Rachel Anne
Did you know most (if not all) serial killers come from religious families?
Also, that this book consists of incest, bestiality, sexism, racism, and polygamy?
Then goes and says "love one another"?
This book repeatedly contradicts itself to the point of it being comical and repeatedly insults the intelligence of the reader. The characters were shoddy, I couldn't follow the plot, and the man character was so far-fetched I couldn't believe a word of it.
Considering this was written over 100 years aft

Seriously, the Bible is my favorite book. It's got a little of everything in it that I love (history, science, mystery, Mystery, love, romance, explosions and fire, wisdom, prophecy, darkness, poetry, unanswered questions, self-help, tragedy, beauty...)

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

most literal and accurate. this is my bible of choice. stitched and genuine not bonded leather. i use it daily and it needs to be tough. ESV and NKJV are also very good. I read the King James in its original translation and it was not nearly as hard to read as most people protest from my view but i see no value over the NKJV as it is a lot more readable and just as accurate unless your dealing with the "king james only" club. whats the best bible to read? the one you actually will. if that’s the ...more

About the binding & cover
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.

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

I received the Jesus Calling devotional bible with general editor Sarah Young a while ago. This was an excellent devotional bible, in appearance and in the readings. The cover is beautifully designed with a photo of a hand that seems to beckon the reader to come closer to our Lord. I must say that this is a bible that I will cherish and continue to use in my walk with the Lord. I was drawn in to the readings and prayers almost instantly. I like that Sarah Young’s devotional readings are more lik ...more

Read the bible in a year, some stretches were hard, Leviticus and some prophets, the disadvantage of reading it in a year is the lacking of depth in a passage for there is only so much time the advantage is that you read the whole book and it is awesome to see all 66 books connect. It is powerful, the word of God
Matthew


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

I don't understand much of what's written in this book...particularly the first half. In spite of that...this has been an interesting and even life changing read. It's a great deal like Tolstoy's War & Peace in that there are large sections of it that I'm tempted to skip over...but I keep getting rewarded as I plow through it. I find Jesus to be a most remarkable man and have come to believe in him as God. He surprised me with his kindness and willingness to sacrifice in the face a people wh ...more

2 Timothy 3:16-17
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.

Hebrews 4:12
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 wasn't going to review the Bible. I wasn't ever going to review the Bible. For one thing, it's a very politically charged move to make. For another, I've probably only technically read maybe less than 10% of the whole thing. A few verses here and there and the entire book of Esther does not a comprehensive reading make.

But today, someone approached me to tell me the message of God the Mother, whose evidence of existence is in the fact that God refers to "us" in Genesis, creating God in "our" i

This is my favorite version of the Bible (NASB) for in-depth study, and this is my favorite study Bible as well. I've read through it many, many times and am reading through it again in 2015. God's word never gets old.
SusanwithaGoodBook
This is my favorite Bible because it has wide margins for notes and lots of blanks to fill in as you study. It also doesn't have a lot of man's commentary, so the Word can speak for Himself. I love it!

This review is for the style of the Holy Bible: Classic Reference Bible-NASB. Rather than review the contents of the Bible (I give it a 5), I'm going to focus on the usability, layout, and style of the specific Bible in question (978-0-310-93127-0). I think most Bible reviewers have strong opinions as to the contents, so I'm writing this style-review just in case someone out there is using goodreads to help figure out which Bible would suit their needs the best.

Overall, I really like the layout

I started reading the Bible when I was 5 years old - random readings. I was a 'born again' Christian by the age of 15 years old. Then as a young adult, I started studying the Bible via church leaders and scholars. I participated fully in church and church related activities. Took many courses from seminaries and bible schools. Then in my thirties, I found the need to read the Bible without outside influence. So, I read it cover to cover -- Gen. 1:1 to Rev. 22:21 -- six times from 1980 to 1986. I ...more
