Experience God in a whole new way

Discover God Study Bible
Filled with 9,000 study notes, this Bible will help you discover God, know Him more deeply, and experience true hope and purpose in your life.

Respected Bible teacher and evangelist, Bill Bright, said, “We can trace all of our human problems to our view of God.”

The Discover God Study Bible focuses on the central person of the Bible—God.
Who is God? What is He like? How can He transform my life?
Too often, we don’t ask these questions of Scripture. Instead, we use our notes to find out ancient facts and figures and forget the central person of the Bible—God.

The resources in the Discover God Study Bible will help you focus on God:

The TopicGuide™ gives you quick access to key Bible truths. The TopicGuide™ contains every key idea in the Bible and appropriate Bible passages.

TopicLink™ enables readers to find key passages on a topic. The TopicLink™ system connects key passages of the Bible on a particular theme, making it easy to find any major teaching of Scripture.

Thousands of notes help you discover God as described in Scripture. The Bible is first and foremost the story of God. Each note in this study Bible draws you closer to Him.

My Response to God articles help you focus on God. Too often we read Scripture without addressing God himself. These articles will prompt you to form an authentic response to God’s love.

Discovery articles reveal God’s character. Full-page articles present the greatest character traits of God as revealed in Scripture.

And much more. . . .

The Discover God Study Bible is packed with notes, charts, and maps.

Discover the God described in the Bible today.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Several months ago, I was able to acquire a copy of this delightful NLT Bible. This is a fabulous tool and resource to in depth study of the scriptures. I would not recommend this one for short study sessions, but for when you can submit some time to really sit and delve into the scriptures and your own self. With a base of the New Living Translation of the Bible, this book is infused with notes and commentary derived from personal notes and material of Bill Bright, "a man who had a really deep, geniune friendship with God and he meant this Bible as his legacy for discipleship of believers.

Within these pages reading the "My Response to God" sections as well the "Discovery verses" and other tools provided, the student can really get an essence for the nature of who God is in their life. As a tool for learning how to grow and deepen your relationship with God, this Bible is the best I have found so far. The only thing you need to add is prayer.
