The Gaither Homecoming Bible

"The Gaither Homecoming Bible" is a New King James Version bible translation assembled by Bill and Gloria Gaither. The Bible itself is a traditional translation, but the Gaither family added a lot of extras into it - the major theme is tying in songs, poems, and quotes from others into the text. This Bible offers a little more color in the pages than a traditional Bible, which I really liked - Colorful text boxes with quotes or important Bible verses, as well as a splash of color in the top margins of the pages. Articles and personal stories are inserted into appropriate places in the text to help the reader make a more personal connection with the Bible, which is a nice addition. I also really enjoyed the tie ins to music - featured articles such as "The Power of Music to Heal" as well as the stories behind popular hymns were really interesting.

The only thing that this Bible is missing is an index, which I use quite frequently in my other Bibles for looking up specific topics and subjects. Other than that, this Bible has everything you could ask for, and a little more. The Gaithers did a wonderful job in assembling this beautiful Bible.
