My Review

The New Spirit-Filled Life Bible is a different bible than those that I usually utilize for bible study. It is a great addition to my collection. Each book begins with a summary that includes the author, date, content, personal application, Christ revealed and the Holy Spirit at work. There are boxes that contain word wealth which defines words as well as putting them into context. Other boxes contain Kingdom Dynamics which explains biblical themes. Also there are Truth-In -Action at the end of each book which helps you apply biblical truths.

The New Spirit-Filled Life Bible is written in simple English which is helpful for both new and mature believers. Give this bible a chance. I know you'll find it very helpful and insightful.
