The concept in the Compass Study Bible (Thomas Nelson, September 2013), is one that originated from readers. Through a series of focus groups and research, a need was discovered and reiterated by consumers for a new type of Bible that helped them find answers but didn’t tell them what to do or how to live their lives. Written in The Voice translation, Compass Study Bible aims to provide a non-threatening package of God’s Word that becomes a companion to the work-a-day person. Compass is meant to help readers become more in step with a biblical worldview by providing points of connection between issues of everyday living and the biblical narrative. There are shaded boxes throughout the Bible. These boxes are packed with historical and helpful information that will bring more depth and understanding to your studying of the Bible. There are also introductions at the beginning of every book to give you insight to the book you're about to read. There are also dark, bold paragraphs that give vital information as you read along. I found this especially helpful as it guided me through what I was reading. This Bible is hard-bound and a compass is embossed into the cover and the quality of the cover feels high quality. It almost feels soft. It's really nice for a hard-bound Bible. There is also a reading plan in the Bible as well as a Topical Guide to the Scriptures in the back. Nice maps are also in the back to give you a reference to where the people are you're reading about. "The Voice" translation of this Bible just makes is so easy to read. You'll find yourself reading on and on because you have a full understanding of what's happening. I really enjoyed that the most about this Bible. I highly recommend this Bible! *This Bible was provided to me for my honest review by Shelton Interactive

"Compass: The Study Bible for Navigating Your Life" is a new Bible from the creators of "The Voice" Bible. "Compass" sticks with the same presentation style as "The Voice", in which the text is written in more of a conversation style. Bold print indicates who is speaking, and is followed by their words, making it easy to know who is saying what.  The text of this Bible is standard size, and for me, easy to read. However, for an elderly person it may be difficult to see. This Bible also offers a modern translation of the Biblical text, which makes it simple to read and understand. This would be a really great Bible for young adults, in my opinion, as the translation and the format almost make you feel like you are reading a play, and it draws you in.  This Bible offers some study tools, such as notes within the text that offer insight into culture, history, and traditions. This Bible also has book introductions, maps, and reading plans to help you get the most out of your Bible.  I would give this Bible a 5/5. I thought it was unique in its style and formatting and really offers a fresh perspective on a traditional text.

I am new to Christianity and had been given a KJV bible, which was immensely appreciated. I would refer to "In time of Sorrow" passages ETC. I had decided I wanted to read the entire bible, though, and knew I needed a version I could thoroughly grasp. I am pretty good with vocabulary and am an avid reader, generally speaking, but I knew I could understand the teachings of the bible more clearly with a different version. After going to a site that gives you an excerpt of passages from different bible versions, I had settled on ordering a NIV version, which has been great. I understand what I'm reading so much more clearly. If you are in the same predicament, I do highly recommend the NIV Skinii bible (I believe it is called) very much. After purchasing my NIV, I was doing pretty well with it but I stumbled upon a link of top rated bibles for beginners. That's when I came across Compass. To be honest, though I loved my new NIV bible, I wish I had gotten this instead. I very much loved that musicians, artists, translators and scholars collaborated to translate the word of God in a way that was clear. I figured I'd forget about Compass, after some time but after a year, I kept searching for it and finally decided I had to have it. It can't hurt to have more than one copy. A lot of people do not like the screen play format. Personally, I adore that about this version. I read the screenplay format even more easily than I do my NIV bible. I find myself going back and forth between my two beloved versions, but the Compass Study Bible has almost everything. This one includes script references of love, peace, temptation, loneliness, ETC as my NIV does not. It's the only "complaint" I have with my NIV skinii and really, it's hardly a complaint, but I would always refer back to my KJV for times of Sorrow, Temptation, ETC. To be honest, it was the only reason I was even still using the King James. Now I have the best of both and then some with this bible. It also inclues "40 Day Retreat with Jesus" which asks that you listen to Jesus and to ask him to make dramatic changes in your life; to find a quiet place and time each day. It gives you a list of the books with the chapters to refer to, to help complete this task. There's a guide to help you complete the bible, in it's entirety in 365 days. I am definitely aiming for this and since it is only the beginning of February in an hour, I am going to do a little extra each day to accomplish reading the bible in a year. There's something similar to a glossary, for extra help. There's maps showing you where certain events took place, which I think it awesome. There's only a few but it's definitely a pretty interesting feature. Now, my one "complaint" would be that it isn't so much a study bible. It's much more helpful than my other 2, as far as assisting my understanding of the Good Book, but I will be buying a little study guide called "Know Your Bible" (I believe) which is only a few dollars. If you aren't new to Christianity, you probably do not need a study guide anyway. You can read from the beginning or use the feature that directs you to passages in time of love/peace/etc and begin there. This bible is an interesting, helpful and unique version of God's Word. I am very satisfied with the purchase. If you can handle screen play format, you will love it too!

Yep. And it's a shame Cyrus had to leave. I could have made some money off him.
