Book Review: Jesus Calling Devotional Bible, NKJV

Jesus Calling Devotional Bible, NKJV
By
Sarah Young, General Editor

What can I really say to describe a Bible?  It’s been the same for a LONG time. 🙂  What makes this particular one unique are the devotions throughout the text. Here’s what thomasnelson.com has to say about this Bible:

The Jesus Calling Devotional Bible puts readers in touch with God and His answers for their life situations. Missionary Sarah Young had been journaling her prayers for years when she began “listening” for what Jesus was saying to her within the words of Scripture. In this Bible, 260 scenarios pose life struggles to which Sarah Young gives answers from her Savior—words that Jesus has lovingly laid on her heart—words that have comforted and inspired Sarah and many others around the world.

Features include:

–260 scenarios with devotions by Sarah Young

–Hundreds of inspiring scriptures highlighted throughout the text

–New King James Version® (NKJV) in paragraph format

–Index to devotions

–Two-color text

–Presentation page

–Ribbon marker

 I received an electronic version of this book therefore I can’t speak to all of the features it’s supposed contain; this version didn’t have two-color text, a ribbon marker or a presentation page.  What I can tell you about are the devotionals you’ll find as you read through this version of the Bible. Each devotion is presented as a letter from someone to God, these touch on many topics including adversity, prayer, transformation and emptiness. After each letter to God you’ll find an answer to the letter, if I understand it correctly these answers contain text from Sarah Young’s book, Jesus Calling.  The words in these “answers from God” speak straight to the reader and really make it a personal experience with God. This topical index makes it easy to find just the answers you’re looking for.
There was only one issue I had and that might be due to the fact that it’s an e-book and not an app of some sort; the devotions often take up big chunks of space and make it difficult if you’re just trying to read the text.

Buy the Book:

If you’re interested in checking out this book you can find it on Amazon and Barnes and Noble, as well as many other retailers.
