The year 2016 incline with steadfastness to an end, for me a wonderful year at good reads, but also a year with lots of challenges at my workplace and greater as also minor trials within my life journey.
But before this year ends, I want to share with all my good friends and all the great and beautiful people at good reads, three books which have followed me during the whole year:
1) The Charles Stanley Life Principles Bible
2) A year with Aslan, daily reflections from the Chronicles of Narnia by C

I highly recommend this Bible, it makes it really easy to read the Bible through in a year. Each day is lined out what you need to read.
I also enjoyed Charles Stanley's insight on verses and his life principles lessons.

EVERY day you get a slice of (1) the Old Testament, (2) Psalms/Proverbs, and (3) the New Testament. Additionally, you get all the Life Principles, notes and explanations, highlighted promises, etc. It has added a whole new perspective to my morning quiet time. Instead of reading someone else's commentary on the Word, I am reading THE WORD.

This book makes you WANT to be faithful to your morning quiet time, devotional, and evening "last thoughts before bed" time. I absolutely love it. It is just

I've had devotional Bibles before, but this is my favorite. I've had daily reading Bibles before, hoping to keep with the daily readings every day (that's the point, right? lol), but I didn't stay with the program more than a couple of weeks. This daily Bible has kept me engaged for a year now. Yes, I miss days, even weeks sometimes, but I do go back. Charles Stanley's devotional thoughts and comments touch me on every page, and keep me reading. I love this Bible, and highly recommend it to anyo ...more

It will remain on my Currently Reading list. May we all read God's Word on a consistent basis. When you get to the end of The Book of the Revelation... start over!

I enjoyed studying this Bible. The life principles are very helpful for getting a better understanding of scripture. It has a very handy life principles reference guide to look things up quickly which I found helpful. It also has maps to show significant events and where they took place to really get a clearer understanding of events. It has a concordance which I found helpful and a section in the back to take notes. I found it to be a really good study Bible.

Will continue to study along with my KJV Liberty Study Bible as I always love the Language of the King James Version most. This is one I read daily as there is no way to ever finish until one day I stand before Him, my savior. Like the sweet loveletters that must be reread continually.

Charles Stanley helps those with no faith understand the simplicity of taking a leap of faith to trust in God. For those that don't understand the standard King James version of the Bible or the International version, this Life Principles bible is for you!!!

I'm not a christian anymore, but this edition provides a very convenient way to read the bible through all the way without being daunting, like it would be if you were to simply read the bible from cover to cover.
I cannot say enough good about this DAILY study Bible. EXCELLENT EXCELLENT EXCELLENT. Older and wiser now, I want to know whose works I am studying, their influence and personal relationship with the Sovereign Creator. Dr. Charles Stanley is one of five finger preachers I will lend my time in listening to. Soft spoken and humble, in his lectures and books the relationship he shares with God is deeply personal and righteous. He avoids his influence and teaches the Word of God.

A Daily Bible is a jewel for anyone hoping to read and re-read the Bible each year. As for this particular version, you'll enjoy an Old Testament reading, a passage from the Psalms and Proverbs, and finally a New Testament reading. The readings average about three pages which often include a "Life Principles" section from the beloved Charles Stanley. His insights add color and perspective as you read. I find the daily readings doable in one sitting each morning. This year (2012) is my third time ...more

This was hard slog and very challenging at times. I completed in 13 1/2 months and I would do it again because of the growth I've gained. Life changing. I will do the NIV next time. I found Charles Stanley religious at times. However, I read this using David Guzik's commentary (www.enduring on some parts and it was amazing.

Excellent! I'm reading it on my iPad each day. I love the comments, the ability to highlight, make notes, look up info instantly, the way it's written. But most of all I like how he has tied in his Life Principles throughout.

This bible helped me read through the Bible in a year, and provided me with numerous insights about a hundred different things about life and relationship with God. I will definitely recommend this Daily Bible to anyone who wants to have a more closer relationship with our maker.

This is an excellent Bible. Dr. Charles Stanley gives a lot of good Biblical advice each day. He also gives the reader 30 Life Principles. These principles help anyone to have a more successful Christian life. I encourage other readers of the Holy Bible to read through this Bible in 2018.

This Bible helped me read through in less than a year, because it made me want to read more than one day's entry at a time. I wanted to keep going to find out what happened next.

God spoke to me every day as I read. Truly a blessing.

I read this book inspired by God over and over as God reveals His truth, and as I grow to understand. The best book one will ever read, choose one that is easy to understand, Charles has life changing commentary to help me learn,and to keep in my heart daily!!!

The side/foot notes, stories, and Principles help connect you to Jesus, the disciples, and the other characters. Through Dr. Stanley's amazing translation & interpretation I was given so much insight and knowledge of the Word.
