Why I Read this Book: I received this Bible as a gift from my fiance.
My favorite part about this Bible are the quotes and songs throughout. Song lyrics are presented from popular hymns and gospel songs along side the scripture that inspired them. Quotes from famous Christians are presented next to verses that mean a lot to them. This Bible makes me appreciate the hymns and gospel songs that are sung as I realize they come straight from scripture. It is wonderful to discover how scripture has affected others and to see what God is telling other Christians. I also love the NKJV translation.
The cover and images throughout the Bible are gorgeous. The hardback cover preserves these wonderfully beautiful pages. I would recommend this Bible to anyone who is looking for a beuatiful twist of a traditional version of the Bible.
