    Bible Selections

    There are a variety of Bible translations that exist out there on the publishing market. I have listed a few recommendations for different reader needs.

        The HarperCollins Study Bible: New Revised Standard Version, with the Apocryphal/Deuterocanonical Books By Wayne A. Meeks, Jouette M. Bassler (ISBN 0060655267, 9780060655266)
        This Bible is great for adults who want to read the Biblical text with an excellent historical commentary. Over 60 historical Biblical scholars contributed to this work. This is a good purchase for anyone who is studying the Bible on a regular basis.
        The Renouvare Spiritual Formation Bible, Editor, Richard J. Foster (ISBN 0-06-067108-4)
        This Bible is great for young adults on up who want to read the Bible and reflect on how it impacts their daily lives. There are devotional sections that introduce the different books and stories. There is a spiritual discipline section that offers a way of living out the scripture in meaningful and life-giving ways. Excellent resource for Sojourner’s groups or personal devotion.
        Practical living Christianity: Get A Life!By Reggie McNeal (ISBN: 978-0-8054-4299-1)
        Our congregation read this book during our October 2008 worship series. It’s a practical application book to help aid the reader in finding purpose for their life, ordering their time around their passion and gifts, and making space for what really matters to them on a daily basis. Reggie writes as a person of deep Christian conviction with a loving, encouraging heart.
