ESV Family Devotional Bible - #flyby Review and Giveaway

Many thanks to Propeller Consulting, LLC for providing this prize for the giveaway. Choice of winners and opinions are 100% my own and not influenced by monetary compensation. I did receive a sample of the product in exchange for this review and post.


Overview:

The ESV Family Devotional Bible is designed to help families read and apply God’s Word together. This full-color edition features the complete ESV text interspersed with engaging illustrations and gospel-centered devotions related to key Bible stories—guiding families through the entirety of God’s Word over the course of a year. Each devotion also includes discussion questions and suggestions for additional reading, helping families develop a habit of reading the Bible together and applying its truth to all of life.

My Review:

My husband and I are very upfront and relational when we speak about God.  We often discuss the Bible and scripture within to our teen kids.  I feel like openly conversing about it allows us quality time with our teens, and gives us the opportunity to explain how we want them to lead their lives.

The ESV Family Devotional Bible is, well, a Bible.  You'll find the same verses and passages in it as you would other common Bibles.  What sets this one apart from others is that there are several devotional pages with illustrations.  These pages tell a total of 130 stories in understandable format.  Right after each story is a section of 'Questions for the Family'.  The questions are designed to get readers thinking about what they just read, and how they can apply that story to their walk with Christ.  There's also a Key Verse. 

I've been getting together with my family to go over the devotionals.  I read the story aloud, then ask the questions.  Each person has an opportunity to give their answers.  We then dissect the Key Verse and go over it in depth. 

At the end of each devotional is a guide that directs you to what page the next devotional is on.  This Bible has a hardbound cover and includes a brown ribbon bookmark.
 
Win It!

One person will win an ESV Family Devotional Bible.

Psalm 23 King James Version (KJV). 23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

My favorite section of the Bible is James, Chapter 2. It talks about how faith without works is dead. "Show me your faith without works, and I'll show you my faith BY my works." In other words, don't just talk the talk, walk the walk!

5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5. I am believing for healing :)
