The NIV Discover God’s Heart Devotional Bible, published by Zondervan is meant to be a journey through the Bible in its entirety. According to the publishers, if the reader faithfully reads each devotional and corresponding portion of Scripture, he will read the entire Bible and encounter the heart of God.
Each of three hundred twelve devotions, six per week if one wishes to complete them in one year, contains three sections. The “God’s Story” section summarizes the portion of Scripture and relates it to the overall story of God. “The King’s Heart,” section shares what God reveals about His heart and elaborates upon the history of the passage. The “Insight,” section shares extra information about the passage.
This Bible is an excellent addition to anyone’s Bible collection. It is especially helpful for someone attempting to follow a reading plan to read through the Bible in one year. The book introductions give information regarding author, date, audience, and theme. There are, however, no color maps or concordance included in the back, as one would find in many Bibles.
I would recommend this Bible to anyone wishing to grow closer to God.
I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
