New Spirit-Filled Life Bible NIV – Book Review
If you are looking for a study Bible that will help you to grow in your faith while leading a spirit-filled life, then the New Spirit-Filled Life Bible is for you!
Now available in the NIV translation, the New Spirit-Filled Life Bible is an update to the original Spirit-Filled Life Bible that was released in 1991. That Bible was significant because it represented the first study Bible that was written from a Pentecostal-Charismatic perspective. This new, updated edition builds upon that original foundation and expands upon it by including new articles and expanded Kingdom Dynamics.
Dr. Jack Hayford – a well respected pastor and church leader with the ability to minister to believers across denominational lines – served as the Executive Editor of this Bible. The goal of this study Bible is to address “important issues of Spirit-filled living in the context of solid biblical scholarship”.
One of the things that I love about this Bible is the wealth of invaluable study tools you’ll find inside. First, you will find all of the standard features you would expect to find in a traditional study Bible:
- A Full Color Presentation Page
- Overviews and Outlines of Each Book of the Bible
- Verse-By-Verse Notes at the Bottom of Each Page
- Articles On Relevant Bible Topics
- In-Text Maps and Charts
- Full Color Maps
- Harmony of the Gospels
- Words of Jesus in Red Lettering
- Blank Pages for Personal Note-Taking
In addition, you will find some key features that are unique to the New Spirit-Filled Life Bible:
- Kingdom Dynamics: This in-text feature enables you to study 41 important Bible themes throughout the Bible by highlighting bible passages related to that theme so that you can study them in a “chain” fashion.
- Word Wealth: This feature provides in-text study of over 550 key Bible words by expanding on their meaning from the original language and tying it in with its Strong’s Concordance Number.
- Truth In Action: This feature is located at the end of each book of the Bible. Each Truth In Action chart highlights the key themes and passages in each book and helps you to apply the Bible truths to your life!
These tools – highlighted in pink and gray boxes – make it easy and enjoyable to explore and study God’s word!
The New Spirit-Filled Life Bible is a wonderful study Bible rich in resources that will help you to grow in your faith!
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
