What I ThinkYou might say, How is this Bible different from any other, and can't I get the same things from reading just any Bible? The answer is Yes! All NIV Bibles are the same, but the difference is, some have devotions, verses pulled out together or highlighted, and other unique things that will help each person with a particular need. The main thing that stuck out to me in this Bible is 'Spiritual keys devotional reading plan: Two cycles (OT and NT) of 49 devotions each lead the reader through 7 keys of spiritual renewal with 7 devotions for each key.' With this special Bible, you can focus on these 7 spiritual keys and the devotions that go with them. Everything you need about each of these keys is right at your fingertips, and ready for you to read and study them. And to answer my questions more clearly, even though all NIV Bibles are the same, in this particular one, you have a different Bible study unique to only this Bible.
To me, everyone and anyone can benefit from this study. Some of the things may be what you have studied before, but you might just learn something new when you go through this study, just as I did. Check this bible out and consider picking up one for yourself, and maybe a friends. This would be a good Group Study Bible. I was given a copy of this Bible in exchange for my personal opinion and review. I wasn't required to write a positive review, just my own opinion.
