College Devotional Bible - A Review

College Devotional Bible
New International Version

A Review

I was hoping for a Bible with some meat worthy of a college student.  I found a devotional Bible that has more devotional than instructional.  Perhaps I had hoped for a College Study Bible - though that is not what is advertised.  

Included are nine months of devotions - each consisting of reading selection, a brief devotional thought or story, and a set of three questions to help the reader apply the lessons.  The three questions included appeared to be more helpful than the devotional itself.  

The College Devotional Bible may be suitable for a Christian student who finds himself or herself isolated from a fellowship of believers - but for a student who has chosen to be active in CRU (Campus Crusades) or IVCF (Intervarsity), this is not the Bible I would choose to purchase for my son or daughter.

This review is based on a free copy of this book provided by the publisher for the purpose of creating this review.  The opinions expressed are mine alone.
