The End Times Survival Guide Mark Hitchcock

The End Times Survival Guide

Mark Hitchcock  published by Tyndale publishers is a newly published guide written for everyone, Christian and non Christians alike.  This guidebook is a resource to any reader about what to expect in the end times based on the bible accounts and prophetic words.  In simple to understand language, the author, Mark Hitchcock, applies current events and observations and connects them to biblical prophecy.   This book helps the reader with an explanation as to why things occur as evidenced by world and political events as well as environmental events.  This book provides the key for this generation to understanding the end times in the context of what is actually happening now.  Rather than the events of revelation and the bible appearing to be an abstract, fictitious account, the author shows the relevancy as well as urgency of applying biblical principles and prophecy to one's own individual life.  This book adds credibility to biblical authority for today's apathetic and unbelieving generation as well as the Christians of today.  This book  delivers an important message. For anyone truly interested in learning about how Revelation and prophecy applies to our modern days, this book is essential.   As a blogger I received a copy of this book for the purpose of writing this review.

NKJV, Ancient-Modern Bible

NKJV, Ancient-Modern Bible, Hardcover, Comfort Print One faith. Handed down. For all the saints.

By Thomas Nelson Bibles is a beautifully bound bible encased in a hard bound slipcover.  This bible is smaller sized with a small font, making it more of a personal sized bible that is easy to carry.  This New King James version bible features a new "comfort print" style of font.  

The bible features historical excerpts and passages as  full length articles.  The excepts from well known theologians, philosophers and Christian thinkers are located in the side bars separate from the main text of the bible.  This is a beautiful and useful bible.  The only downside is the extremely tiny font which makes it difficult to read even with the "comfort print".  For this reason I don't see this as a bible I will read frequently.  This bible would be perfect if it was in a larger scale, bigger with a larger font.  In the end, the usefulness of a bible depends on practical details such as font size and readability. Simply put, this bible hurts my eyes to read.  This is not going to be an issue for most readers, but it is something to consider if font size makes a difference.  As a blogger for Booklook I received a copy of this bible published by Thomas Nelson for the purpose of writing this review.

ESV Story of Redemption Bible

ESV Story of Redemption Bible
The ESV version of the Story of Redemption Bible is a beautifully presented bible featuring the trust worthy, accurate ESV translation.  The pages are thick, off white with  an easy to read font size in paragraph format.  Two tone illustrations are featured at the start of each book.  Within the text, are separate passages offering insight into the biblical text.  This useful and accessible bible encourages  daily bible reading in a format reminiscent of a novel.   The off white pages and gold toned accent color gives this bible an authentic antique heirloom appearance.  This sturdy bound bible will last through years of use.  The beautiful presentation pages would make this perfect to give as a treasured gift.  This bible is not the typical study bible format and is a good outreach to those who don't frequently read the bible. The minimalist designs will appear to readers of all ages. As a blogger for Crossway, I received this book for the purpose of writing this review.
