My Review:

This is a great Bible that is geared more towards spiritual growth in more of a self-help manner with wonderful well written notes by the authors of a well-known books call Boundaries. This is an easy to read bible and I love NIV Bible so that was fantastic! This bible have a great selection of devotionals to choose from also. I would definitely recommend this Bible to anyone who is interested.



I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Happy Reading!
