Guest Post, Blog Tour & Giveaway: Holy Bible Mosaic

*Coming to you straight from the Arlington Public Library Wi-Fi... *

One day late, but none the less I'm here with a very interesting blog tour for Tyndale's new Holy Bible: Mosaic. Here today, I have a great guest post from editor and neat guy Keith Williams. And he was so nice to provide a video for us as well. *grin*

Holy Bible: Mosaic NLT (Meditations)

Using Holy Bible: Mosaic

If you haven’t had a chance to see a print copy of Holy Bible: Mosaic yet, I’d encourage you to take a look at either this interactive online sample or this pdf sample to help give you an idea of what I’m talking about in the video above.

Many people have asked me how I think they should use the weekly meditations in Holy Bible: Mosaic. I wrote a little bit about this in the User’s Guide on pages m11-12 in the Bible, but I didn’t have enough space to give a full explanation there. Besides, I think this Bible can be used in any number of different ways and still be profitable. After all, we are a Mosaic of believers in Christ, each contributing a unique piece to the picture. So the way I talk about using Mosaic in the video is one excellent way to do it, but I know you will probably think of your own excellent ways was well.

So what are your ideas? If you already have a copy, how have you been using Mosaic? If not, take a little bit of time to look through the samples I linked to above and throw out some ideas.

Thanks to the great publicists and blog tour opportunity from Tyndale House. I received a copy of the Holy Bible: Mosaic to read and review myself. Of course being a Bible, I have only barely started to scratch the surface of what is the awesome-ness of this new tool for study. My father, who is a big fan of Biblical History, Liturgy, and Bible Study looked it over and stated that he thought it would be a very interesting experience to use and a different idea for study, but that he was not sure if it was his type of study Bible, yet is curious to check it out. For myself, in the short time that I have been able to delve into the pages of this unique tool I have found it to be a different experience in study than I have ever had before and must tell you that I like it.

I cannot wait to have more time to tell you what I really think!

And of course, because I'm absolutely crazy right now, and because Tyndale is awesome to provide. I have one to GIVEAWAY!! After reading Keith's post and watching his video, in depth discuss with me through comments or feel free to email me just why you want your very own copy of this Holy Bible: Mosaic. Is it the liturgy? The International feel or what draws you? The winner (date TBD - let me get internet first!!) will get a certificate for a free Holy Bible: Mosaic. And of course, for more opportunities to win. Do some of those "other" things (see previous giveaway posts to know what I mean...)

What an awesome giveaway! This Bible sounds wonderful. I like to use several different translations, styles, etc. of Bibles when I do studies so that I can gain different perspectives that don't always pop up in just your NLT studying. ---- I hope that makes sense :)
I also enjoy the Archaeological Study Bible.

The Bible's art make it look like a beautiful book that I'd be interested in taking a look at. NLT is one of my favorite versions and this looks like it's got an interesting organization that would be helpful for daily study. :)

I'm the first so hope this makes me extra lucky! Thank you for this contest and for making it open for overseas readers. Much appreciated.

Please count me in.

I would love a copy of this book, from the beautiful artwork and meditations to blank spaces for me to make notes, I am sure I would learn so much from this bible. I have never a NLT bible either! BTW the links from Keith's article don't work, but I did find the online Mosaic site here, in case your readers are interested:

I’d like a copy of the Bible because I have always loved illuminated manuscripts, and this includes that kind of thing. I also love the meditation-like element, which is something I’m looking for in a Bible. I particularly appreciate that it includes elements from multiple traditions, perspectives, and times. It seems like the Mosaic Bible would do an excellent job creating dialogue, which is so necessary for spirituality and delving deeper into the Bible.
