I frequently recommend this Bible, especially to people like me, whose eyes would glaze over whenever I tried to read a King James version. This Bible is in today's, regular english and I love the concordance section (it's a glossary and index by subject).
For someone who had never read more than a few paragraphs of the Bible, it was amazing that besides being ABLE to read the entire thing, I couldn't put it down once I got into it!! I checked off the table of contents after I completed each "book" that's how I know that I read the whole thing.
This is a great Bible for any age. For beginners, I recommend starting with "Proverbs," it's just little snippets of wisdom. God Bless.

This is to be a graduation gift for my daughter and so far I believe it is an awsome reference for her.

I find this bible handy for reading the "assigned" chapters each day. Having it all arranged in a book is convienient and keeps me going. However, it's a pain to use as a reference. Because it arranges the text in four parallel tracks (OT, psalms, proverbs, NT- there is a little bit of each every day) it's hard to find specific verses.
Excellent way to read through God's Word!

I was blessed to stumble on this little gem in my local used bookstore. I was especially impressed that it uses a New King James Version translation, which is both accurate to the original text and easy to read (the introduction states that the NKJV is on an eighth-grade reading level).
Each day's reading of the Bible is divided into two chapters from the Old Testament, one Psalm, two Proverbs, and one chapter from the New Testament. Then, there is a short devotional reading, which is based on one of the chapters you just read. Lastly, there is a thought-for-the-day, which is my favorite part of this book. Instead of some random, cheesy line, this book's thought-for-the-day is a Bible verse that relates to what you just read. This helps you understand, and hopefully apply, what you have read to your own heart, and it is all based on Scripture. Great!
I really recommend this version of the Daily Bible to anyone who wants to start committing a little part of each day to the Lord and His Word.
