- Review by Victor
With an effective effort the publishers had really extend a hand for those affected by an emotional crisis, this Bible results to be an easy to read guide to both, be assisted emotionally or be provided with ways to comfort and guide others in need. It is also a good help for anyone that wants to ease someone else's lives.
The fonts are printed in some sort of dark red color, which gives the reader of a new cool experience. It comes with a very compelling collection of recovery stories, rightly placed along the biblical text. Also throughout this Bible are inserted a very valuable lessons. At the end of the book, you can find a 30 days daily devotional. Every book has a concise and theme oriented introduction.
Having all that into account, I can say that I will call all that a brief seminary in understanding pain and suffering either it is of others and or one self's too.
I definitely recommend NIV Celebrate Recovery Bible, to be acquired. If you know someone struggling with pain, this is the perfect gift.
