Grow in faith together!

Instead of being tucked away on a bookshelf, this Bible will find a place throughout the house—at the dinner table as part of family prayer, on the living room coffee table as part of family discussion, on your bedside table as a source of inspiration and solace, and in your teen’s room for learning and guidance.
