This softcover Bible is an ideal, real-life spiritual guide for anyone looking for hope in the face of difficult circumstances and the negative habits they are trying to control.

My Review:
I am not in recovery for anything so it might seem strange that I ordered this Bible to review.  I thought that there would definitely be someone who I could give it to and so I thought it would be a great resource to have.  I was right.  The Bible is amazing on its own, but this one is full of little extras that make it that much more enriching and easy to understand.  I love all of the features this Bible has.  I highly recommend this Bible for anyone, but the reflection aspects are more geared toward those in some kind of recovery.


I received this book for free in exchange for my honest opinion.
