Book Review, “The NIV Ragamuffin Bible,” Zondervan publishers

NIV Ragamuffin Bible coverThe NIV Ragamuffin Bible is an impressive hardcover Bible published by Zondervan. In addition to the full Old and New Testaments, it includes devotions for the “bedraggled, beat-up, and brokenhearted.”  It’s one hundred four devotions, two hundred fifty reflections, and one hundred fifty quotes feature the works of Brennan Manning (1934-2013). They are designed to draw the reader closer to God and His Word, as well as encouraging us to grow stronger in our Christian walk as children of the King of kings.

I was impressed by this Bible. The devotions, reflections, and quotes are well-written and easy to relate to.  I would have like to see this in a red-letter edition.  A concordance and a few maps at the back would have been helpful resources as well.  But overall, I found this Bible to be very well arranged, a true tribute to the works of Brennan Manning.  I would recommend this to anyone in need of the Word of God!


I received this Bible free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
