I have about 15 Bibles laying around, an Probably my most read Bible in the house. Not that I'm complaining, after the ridiculously long nature of book like Proverbs or Isaiah I say it with love, long-dead Jewish icons. I feel like I am handling an old book - I love this bible. At first I didn't want to read it because I instinctively balk at bandwagony things, and because I wanted to be too cool to do what everyone else was doing. His people are fallable, not heroes. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.
Many parts of it left me confused and dismayed. This letter can feel a little restricting sometimes, but that's probably an indication that it's doing its job. In my personal opinion, for this edition, if they could use two color printing will be better. I haven't taken very good care of it -- you can see a few dings in the leather from my carelessness. I bought three of them. Some awesome stuff in here, with lots of crazy people, establishing everything that it takes to get the Jews to Egypt wishing for an Exodus: Four stars.
It only has some women-hating chauvinists. This is trippy shit, man. The Bible text is laid out in an easy-to-follow, single-column format. It's pretty obvious to me that these books were written at different times by different people, not inspired by one God unless he's got many, many personalities , who have at least one thing in common, namely controlling other people using fear, although maybe for different reasons. Many parts of it left me confused and dismayed. Ultimately people are adhering to rules of the culture in which they live.
Some gems buried within, though, like Joash in 2 Chronicles 22-ish; you just have to dig for them. He's very interesed in the universal themes of Jesus's time on Earth, and not so much with what was going on day-to-day. That's just the way it is! But honestly, some of the sheer fun wears off by then end, and I push forward more because I believe in the vision for a quick read than because I'm having fun in the process. Where will the personalization be imprinted? It's along the lines of the synopsis of Moby Dick I read somewhere: Boy meets whale; boy loses whale; boy gets whale back again So for the Bible it's God meets people; God loses people; God gets people back again In theological terms that's covenant; apostasy; incarnation and atonement I admit my summary misses out the part where the incarnated God is deliberately killed by people and then resurrects himself I thought of a very short summary for those who don't have the time to read the whole thing. I think this is the shortest book in the Bible being only half a page long and I have no real idea why it's in there, because it's mainly about how cool Philemon is and how he should take care of this Onesimus guy that Paul has picked up along the way. Created for Bible readers looking for as much space as possible for sermon notes, personal reflections, prayers, or artwork, the edition features cream-colored paper and durable binding to ensure that the edition lasts a lifetime. Not cool to switch all the time, guys.

The rest of it is a chronicle of genocide, rape, war, destruction, and hatred, interspersed with a really boring catalog of everyone born to a single patriarch. I don't really understand this book; it starts out like Jeremiah, with the gloom and doom on Israel for being arrogant fools. Read through the whole Bible this year. It's nice to read where all of that comes from and how it actually was intended to work.
Pages and pages of lists of unusual names - many very cool ones! You need e milk, not solid food, 13for everyone who lives on milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, since he is f a child. Only six chapters, and it's another Paul-as-a-person letter. Still, I wanted a Bible that looked like a Moleskine.

But to read it through in a year was a privilege and a joy. If I have what your trouble is right, you may want to get a hard or paperback Bible or go on separate devices if that's possible Since this is actually 66 books in one, perhaps I should review them as I go. That culture may be picking and choosing from among the laws of the Bible, but the culture is not the culture of the Jews from 3000 years ago, fortunately. Does that mean that one day, out of nowhere, God suddenly changed his mind and decided it was time to redeem humanity and stop all that stoning to death shit? The problem of differentiating a false prophet from a true prophet is never examined - how can the listener be expected to tell the difference? Most of it the 'Lord's' wishes.

I was actually reluctant to reading the bible when I was younger as I was actually worried I would be beliver. I have about 15 Bibles laying around, and the English Standard Version is my favorite to read. But on the much more positive side, the rest of the translation is absolutely wonderful.
