Hey everyone! I hope everyone is off to a great start this New Year! To begin the new year Harper Collins Christian Publishing has provided me with a sample copy of a great new Bible – The TEXT Bible. The TEXT Bible is a wonderful tool for students, young adults, and new believers as they dig into studying the Bible on their own. The TEXT Bible uses the following “TEXT the Text” Bible engagement technique:
T – Talk to God
E – Encounter God & humanity
eXamine your heart
T- Talk to others
Some of the features included in The Text are:
- TEXT the Text: use the four-step TEXT study method to engage with Scripture
- Big Q of the Text: big life questions with short answers
- “Who is God?”: nearly 100 short devotions on the person and character of God
- Praying the Text: Learn how to start praying God’s Word right back to him!
- Get to Know the Text: brief explanations of people and events found in Scripture
- Follow the Thread: navigate the Bible across topics
- Anatomy of the Text: concise descriptions of literary devices and categories of Scripture found within the Bible, such as parables and apocalyptic books
- Terms of the Text: brief definitions of important words to help us better understand and discuss Scripture
- Clear and readable 9-point NET Comfort Print® typeface
THINGS I LOVE ABOUT THIS BIBLE: Praying the Text is one of my favorite features! I feel like praying scripture back to God is something all Christians fail to utilize. Praying scripture back to God is powerful, and beneficial as we deal with the daily struggles of life in a fallen world. I also love how the “TEXT theText” Talk to others encourages Christians to simply talk to others about their faith and what they are learning!
The layout/format of THE TEXT Bible is perfect for taking notes and journaling. Book intros are included for each Book of the Bible. The TEXT Bible uses the very understandable NET Translation.
I believe The TEXT Bible will help ANYONE with tools that connect Scripture to all of life.

DISCLOSURE: Many thanks to Harper Collins Christian Publishing for providing a sample of the product for this review. Opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation.
This looks like an excellent Bible for anyone! I love the format and agree Praying the Text is one of the best features. I also love the “Who is God” insights — it’s so important to see what Scripture is saying about God rather than just looking for what it’s saying about us.
I think the breakdown would be awesome and really useful in communicating with others daily about Gods word!
