Return to the Bible as it was before chapters and verses. The Bible isn't a single book. It's a collection of many books that were written, preserved and gathered together so that they could be shared with new generations of readers. The Bible is an invitation to you to first view the world in a new way, and then to become an agent of the world's renewal. The Books of the Bible, NIV helps you have a more meaningful encounter with the sacred writings and to read with more understanding, so that you can take your place more readily within this story of new creation. This is a revolutionary new presentation of the NIV Scripture that strips away centuries of artificial formatting, leaving behind nothing but pure Bible text. The result is a Bible unlike any other available today --- and more like the original Scriptures: specially designed to be read from start to finish.'There is no Bible more suited to reading from beginning to end.' --- Scot McKnight, author of Jesus CreedFeatures:Specifically, this edition of the Bible differs from the most common current format in several significant ways:* Chapter and verse numbers have been removed from the text* The books are presented instead according to the internal divisions that we believe their authors have indicated* A single-column setting is used to present the text more clearly and naturally, and to avoid disrupting the intended line breaks in poetry* Footnotes, section headings and any other additional materials have been removed from the pages of the sacred text* Individual books that later tradition divided into two or more parts are put back together again* The books are arranged in an order that helps you understand the Bible more completely
