I have been in search for a new Bible so when I saw this one up for review I snatched it up. When I saw that the contributors were Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend I was super excited to get it!
I love how sturdy this Bible is! That's one of the reasons I was on the search for a new one, my old one has a paper cover and just isn't holding up over the years. The NIV Life Journey Bible is so sturdy, I'm sure it would hold up perfectly for years and years!
This Bible is also easy to read and holds such great nuggets of advice for your daily life! I would recommend this Bible to everyone, men and women both.
This book was provided to me free of charge by Book Look in return for my honest review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

I’ve read several books by Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend, including "Boundaries" and Cloud’s "Changes That Heal," so I was pretty excited to learn about the "NIV Life Journey Bible." First and foremost, this work contains the complete text of the NIV Bible in its most recent edition. Scattered throughout in blue boxes or edge highlighting are features provided by Cloud and Townsend to help readers apply Bible truths to their lives, particularly in regard to spiritual, emotional, and relational growth.
I’ve read a few other Bibles arranged this way with devotional insights from popular authors’ works placed in relevant spots. I expected to find the same here. I was happy to note that the features placed alongside the Bible text by Cloud and Townsend appear to be unique to it or to have been developed specifically for this work based on precepts from their other works (as opposed to being cut and pasted or quoted directly from other works). I appreciate that! The features I am most excited about are the character profiles (30+), essays (20), and insights (300!), though I appreciate the book introductions, too. Other references include reading plans, a subject index, and “where to find it.”
The only downside for me was the ink. People with a sensitivity to newsprint may have trouble reading this Bible. I have to read the Bible text from a different Bible, then the insights, just one at a time, in a well-ventilated area. I’ve never been allergic to a book before! And this one is a Bible?! I guess there’s a first time for everything.
I received a complimentary copy of the "NIV Life Journey Bible" from the BookLook Blogger program in exchange for this honest review.
