Baker Books God's Word Thinline Bible, Imitation leather, purple shimmer, vine design

GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) accurately translates the meaning of the original biblical texts into clear, everyday language. Readable and reliable, GW is living, active, and life-changing. The combination of accuracy and readability makes GW ideally suited for devotional reading and in-depth study; preaching, teaching, and worship; memorization; and discipleship.

The thinline edition features a special format. Books that are primarily prose are presented in two columns to create shorter, easier-to-read lines, while books that are primarily poetry are single-column to preserve parallelism, a key element of Hebrew poetry.

But it's not truly easy to read if it's not easy to carry everywhere you go. So GW is now available in a Thinline edition in four striking binding choices. Each Thinline Bible includes terrific features, such as
  • An index to the teachings of Jesus
  • An application index
  • A dictionary and concordance
  • Full color maps
  • A presentation page
  • Black-letter text
  • A ribbon marker
  • Translation and textual notes

This translation is wonderful. It's very readable, understandable, and still very piercing with the choice of wording used to translate.
The front cover is much more pretty in person than the picture online shows. Also, the size is perfect for toting around or for study purposes. I would have no problems recommending this bible to anyone.

I am not ready to give up my KJV but I enjoy reading this bible. I also like that it is a translation and strives to stay close to the orginal language.

I found this Bible easier than the NIV version because it just breaks it down in such simple words. It's still the Word of God, but easier to understand.
