J. Mark Bertrand, author of the Better Bible Design Blog, posted this review of the Tyndale Select Reference and Schuyler Caxton Editions that we thought NLT Blog Readers would find helpful.

Whom Shall I Fear?

My daughter loves to be afraid. She rides the craziest, twistiest, highest roller coasters; has bungee-jumped headfirst off a 300-foot tower; and skydived out of an airplane last week.

What Keeps Us from Trusting God

This morning while reading Jeremiah 4, I didn’t get very far before having to stop—at verse 1. “If you wanted to return to me, you could” (NLT). We often approach God and faith as a fix-all for what ails us. We look to the Bible and maybe to people who are close to God to […]

Living for God

Lately I’ve been thinking about the early days of my faith formation. When I was a young Christian—in age and in faith—I had the privilege of being part of a community of Christians where grace flowed freely and the Bible came alive. I was enthralled by the experiences of God’s holiness we shared that led […]

Daily Spiritual Nourishment

Most of us like to eat every day. We may not be proud of our diet, but we usually avoid hunger one way or another. In fact, many of us eat three or more meals a day whether we’re hungry or not. Students of nutrition tell us that our appetites are not the best guidelines […]
