"The Life" is a small Bible type book. Bible type as in it is excerpts/passages from the Gospels, Acts, James and 1 John. It is to help a person get acquainted with God's story through the life of Jesus.
If you have a teen or a friend who is just getting to know Jesus or has an interest, this is the "Bible" for them. It is not overwhelming and is small enough to give and not feel like you are overpowering them with a 1000 page book.
"The Life" is presented in magazine form. It has great illustrations, not cheesy ones, that will capture the attention of anyone. It is like reading articles and not chapter after chapter. For those of us who have a hard time when there is no references, this is not the case. "The Life" has chapters and verses, so if you want to have them look at a certain passage, it is easy for you to reference and for them to find it.
Some of the passages have challenging statements like, "Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have God's Son does not have life. The choice is yours." "The Life" is a great addition to your resources when encountering people who need Jesus.
All the excerpts are from the New Living Translation. So it is very reader and new believer friendly. I highly recommend it.
