NIV Life Journey Bible – Book Review

Ever since I became a Christian, I have been a fan of the work of Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend – two best-selling authors who provide readers with a biblically-based approach to addressing their spiritual, emotional and relational health issues.

So – when I learned that Doctors Cloud and Townsend were teaming up with the folks at Zondervan to create the NIV Life Journey Bible – a specialty Bible that promises to help you “Find The Answers For Your Whole Life” – I was intrigued.

I could not wait to review this book.

I’m pleased to say that this Bible did not disappoint.

I reviewed the hard-cover edition of the NIV Life Journey Bible, which is designed with an attractive yellow and navy jacket which matches the cover underneath. The pages are white with the attractive navy blue color scheme carrying through without. The font is standard size – fine for young eyes – small for aging eyes.

What differentiates the NIV Life Journey Bible from others on the market is that the features focus on supporting your personal growth and journey towards wholeness through the application of God’s Word. In addition to the complete NIV text, you’ll find the following highlights:

  • 66 Book Introductions that call out key growth concepts in each book of the Bible.

NIV Life Journey Bible - Growth Lessons

  • Over 30 profiles of biblical figures that reveal the growth principles that are found in God’s Word.

NIV Life Journey Bible - Profiles

  • 20 Essays that develop important principles of spiritual growth, covering topics such as growth, grief, relationships, and more.

NIV Life Journey Bible - Feature Article

  • 300 Insights that give you an inside track on tips for emotional and relational health.

NIV Life Journey Bible - Insights

You’ll also find several study helps including reading plans, a subject index, a “where to find it” index, and a place for note-taking at the end of this Bible!

No matter where we are in life, there is always something that we are working on in our personal lives – some issue that we are struggling with – something that is waiting to trip us up.

For those moments when we need some extra wisdom in dealing with difficult issues – the NIV Life Journey Bible is the perfect resource to turn to for insight and practical advice!

I rate this Bible 5 out of 5 stars.

    I grew up on the old King James version and came to know Jesus Christ as my saviour then. Perhaps all the new translations are helpful to many people because their time to understand and accept Christ is at that moment. I do have different versions also and from many do receive blessings. My thought is I already have trouble enough doing what I have learned I should do. The more I learn I am told the more I will be accountable for. That’s heavy in modern day language.
