Recently I started the bible plan for this book on my bible app looking for a devotional to do every morning. So far it has been good, until I came to the story about the college of engineering student David who prayed to God about getting good grades. In the study is claims that God told him to get some rest which consisted of studying the word, praying, relaxing, worshiping, etc. But what surprised me overall is that the author would claim that God would tell someone to get rest from Saturday 6pm-Sunday 6pm now obviously, they are referring to Sabbath rest, receiving rest in a period from sundown to sundown, but clearly the one day is given. According to the scripture, when Jesus died he died a Friday, and as the Sabbath day approached people made way to prepared spices and ointments (Luke 23:54-24:1) , on that day He RESTED then arose from the dead redirection Sunday, in the beginning when God created the heavens and the Earth, on the 7th Day He rested (Genesis 2:2,3)....the seventh day of the week being the Sabbath day, in the scripture it reads that the Sabbath day was sanctified and made holy, being a sign of God's power and love and mercy (Ezekiel 20:12), and in Leviticus 23:32 and Mark 1:32 it is clear the scripture talks about when the Sabbath rest should take place, from evening to evening BUT on the seventh day so this would mean actual Sabbath rest is from Friday sundown to Saturday John 14:15, Jesus says, If ye love me, keep my commandments...Jesus came to fulfill the law, the law in the flesh, Satan's accusation against God is that we are unable to keep his law, that his law is too hard and unjust but Jesus came and lived in this sinful world and kept all the commandments of God including the 4th (Luke 4:16) which states "Remember the Sabbath Day, to keep it holy....The Lord blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it" (Exodus 20:8:11). I just felt this needed a bit of clarification so that we all are on one accord in reading scriptures accurately to gain spiritual truth. God bless (Posted on 4/2/2015)

I can resume with one word, all that it has to be said about the NIV College Bible from Zondervan, and that is : Simplicity. I think that even the devotional notes, are set to be not complicated and, perhaps, designed to push the reader to go straight to the sacred text, not because the notes are not good, but because of its uncomplicated nature, or it seems to me. As usual the presentation is fine, I would prefer the fonts were bigger, but in the great scheme of things conforming this Bible, I can say that everything aims to avoid losing focus. I like this version, I also consider it to be a good gift for that youngster coming out of his/her comfort zone. It does not take much space, I got the hardcover edition, they have a soft cover version which I assume is thinner. Although I really think students will prefer the hardcover.

I received this NIV College Devotional Bible to review through Book Look Bloggers. It is better than I anticipated! As a student at a local community college full of Muslims, Atheists, and having three Anti-God/Atheist clubs, this Bible is invaluable to me. The devotions are very thought provoking and personal. It's hard to put this Bible down once you start reading, it's that good! I challenge any believer to read just one devotion, then put it down...I doubt many can! I carry this Bible with me to school and use it a lot when evangelizing other students on campus. I love that it is NIV, because the NIV gospel of John is so compelling to believers and non-believers alike. The print is a easy-to-read size, so most people should have no problem reading the print. I plan on taking this bible with me when I move on to Seminary in a few months. I can't express how wonderful this devotional Bible is, I highly recommend it to any student! A great gift for anyone to give a student who's going off to college to help keep them in God's Word and spiritually fit in today's world! (Posted on 9/29/2014)
