NIV Worship Together Bible

Worshiping God is one of the believer’s highest callings. Music and song have been a timeless way to glorify God throughout history. Scripture itself is full of musical and poetic praises dedicated to the Lord. Using a unique combination of songs and reflections, the NIV Worship Together Bible blends modern-day worship and culture with the beloved Word of God. This Bible helps you embrace God as your loving Father and shows you how to exalt him through song and reflection. The musical inspiration in this Bible will remind you of the importance of constantly striving to be Christlike. As Pastor Jack Hayford, the author of the song “Majesty,” once put it: “Worship changes the worshiper into the image of the One worshiped.”

The NIV Worship Together Bible is a wonderful resource and study tool that I plan to use for many years to come. The Bible is a great size, is hardback, and included the entire Bible text in the New International Standard Version. Some of its features include the lyrics to the top 50 worship songs, the chords for the top 20 songs, and notes, history, and reflections of classic songs and hymns and their writers from the past several centuries. This Bible also has an essay exploring the purpose and history of worship music as well as a foreword by Matt Maher and song index according to scriptural reference.

I loved the way the NIV Worship Bible includes music, songs, and the songs' history in an integral way with the Scripture. It is a great way to learn more about the worship songs we sing and grasp how they have been founded on Biblical truth. I enjoyed using the chord sheets to play and sing many worship songs, and the resource of the lyrics from 50 worship songs was great to have available all in one location. Overall, I have loved this Bible so far, and I look forward to using it often in the future.

I received this book for free from Zondervan publisher and in exchange for an honest review.
