My Review

I choose this Bible to review because I know so many people that have gone through the Celebrate Recovery class, and I know how much my friends have been helped because of Rick Warren and his ministry. This is a beautiful Bible inside and out. The cover has a beautiful picture on it, and the fonts and colors make it all very nice. Inside, the words are in a brown color. This is truly a different kind of study Bible. It was put together with those who have taken this class in mind. Among the special things in this NIV Bible as lessons that unpack the eight recovery principles in practical terms, devotional readings, Bible character studies tied to stories from real-life people who have found heal and peace in their own life. And the most important and the one I found most special is the Recovery Stories of people who have found help while attending Rick Warren's Celebrate Recovery classes.

There is so much in this special Bible, and it holds a special place in my heart because of the lives changed by this study. Everyone who has taken this Celebrate Recovery class needs a copy of The Celebrate Recovery Bible. I received this book from Blogging for Books to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.
