NIV Worship Together Bible – Review

Are you a worship leader who wants to know how the songs we sing in church correlate with Scripture? Do you enjoy learning the history behind popular worship songs? Are you looking for a resource that will help you to integrate worship music into your devotional time?

If worship is a priority in your life, then the NIV Worship Together Bible is written for you!

The NIV Worship Together Bible – Discover Scripture Through Classic & Contemporary Music is designed to help you integrate Scripture and worship in your daily life.

Features of this Special Edition Bible include:

  • The complete NIV Bible text (updated from the original NIV and TNIV texts)
  • Lyrics to the Top 50 Worship Songs
  • Song Notes And Reflections from the Songwriters
  • Simple Chord Charts for 20 Popular Worship Songs
  • An Essay That Explores the Purpose and History of Worship Music
  • An Index of Songs by Scriptural Reference

There are several things that I like about this Bible:

  • I found the “Behind The Song” stories and the personal reflection questions interesting.
  • I enjoyed the mix of worship songs.
  • I appreciated the convenience of having the chord charts to 20 popular worship songs in the back of the Bible. This can be especially helpful for impromptu worship periods during a Bible study or small group gathering!
  • I liked associating worship songs with specific scriptures.

As much as I like the convenience of having these worship resources integrated into one Bible, however, I was disappointed that the NIV Worship Together Bible lacks any additional study tools.

Therefore, my overall assessment is that the NIV Worship Together Bible is best used as a resource Bible by worship and ministry leaders. Most others – particularly people picking a primary Bible – would be better served by a more comprehensive study Bible.

  1. I was expecting this to be a Bible about family studies or couples studies that could be done together. I didn’t expect it to be about song Worship. Glad I read your review.

      I’m glad you did too, Crystal! Isn’t it funny how the word “worship” means different things to different people?
      Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to share your thoughts with us today at Create With Joy! 🙂

    By the tittle I would have not imagine that it was mostly about worshiping via songs, this is a great review. Thank you

      You’re the second person to say that, Jay!
      Fascinating! Worship songs was exactly what came to my mind when I saw the title!
      Would love to hear everyone else’s feedback on this! 🙂

    I have the old NIV Worship Bible and this sounds quite similar. Being familiar with the website which is all music, I expected it to be about worship through music but I can totally see where others came up with their initial thoughts! Thanks for sharing about this and for linking it up at Booknificent Thursday!
