Snark & Sensibility

NRSV Simple Faith Bible
Monday, August 31, 2020 by LINDA WOOD RONDEAU

Nobel Peace Prize winner, former President Jimmy Carter is the editor of the new NRSV Simple Faith Bible: Following Jesus into a Life of Peace, Compassion, and Wholeness (Zondervan, 2020).

“According to the publisher, Carter’s relentless desire for peace, compassion, and wholeness permeates the notes of this Bible. His decades-long Sunday School teaching ministry, public service, and humanitarian engagement form the basis of each Bible book’s introductions, contemplative essays, reflective quotes, and honest prayers, calling readers to a warmhearted, justice-filled life of faith.”

I received a copy of this book for my honest review as a blogger grid partner: #BibleGatewayPartner.

I was thrilled to receive a review copy since I am an admirer of our former president. I was also pleaseed to gift this to my grandson who has recently joined Bible study groups. He works three jobs so doesn’t have a lot of time. The short but poignant commentary is just what my grandson needs.

I also recommend this version for those who are new in the faith. Easy to understand commentary makes Scripture come alive.
