My Review

I really enjoy this Bible. I love how it is laid out, while the words don't change, it's still a Bible folks, but it makes reading it more interactive. There are little blurbs about fun history facts that I never knew and different routes you can take. There is the Flyover Route, Direct Route, and Scenic Route. Flyover consists of 54 readings, while the scenic has 386 readings. I thought it was easy to follow, and they tie in different verses that connect from the Old and New Testament. I also LOVE the maps in the back and the listed "itinerary" so if you get off track on your route you can flip to the back and find where you were at. There is also a bunch of "side trips" that are compiled in the back so if you want to read multiple verses on one topic they are put together so easy to find. I know a lot of times I want to read about certain things but I have no idea where to look, while a concordance is wonderful, this added feature in the Bible itself is nice. 
I really like this Bible and the version is NLT (New Living Translation). I think this would be a great Bible for a new believer or someone who has read the Bible for years. If you are in search of something new or trying to read more of the Bible- I highly recommend!!
