The Bible. Even though it’s the most read book in the world, reading the Bible has often been difficult or confusing for Christians, causing many of us to miss the sweeping story of God’s love and mercy and its personal meaning for each of us. Now you can read the New Testament in a new way – almost like your favorite book. By removing chapter and verse numbers, and placing the books in chronological order, you will find yourself drawn into the amazing story of our salvation. Each of the four Gospels is placed at the beginning of a group of related books including the letters and wisdom books, forming a cross, as it were, that points to Christ. The Books of the Bible New Testament also includes the five basic steps in the practice of Lectio Divina, a variety of maps, a visual chronology of the Bible including world events, and invitations to each of the books that helps give rich context to your reading. Immerse yourself in Scripture like never before. Read the Bible in a way that will connect you not only to the time and place, not only to the people, but also to the Word of God as it speaks to your soul. The Christian Community Bible translation is approved by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines.
