Compass Bible

"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.
