Gateway Publishing’s Fresh Start Bible is filled with insights from Pastors Robert Morris, Jimmy Evans, Jack Hayford, and other key leaders, designed to help build a strong spiritual foundation. The Bible comes in several different cover choices, but the only translation choice is the NLT.
There are divisions called Fresh Start Journey which answers questions about the foundations of faith. Intersections offers commentary on key Bible characters and events. Road Signs provides practical teachings meant to relate to scripture to inspire spiritual growth.
Worship Way discusses elements of worship. Freedom Path speaks to the spiritual freedom believers enjoy. Bible Reading Breakthrough emphasizes the importance of daily Bible reading.
There is also a Leader Guide for Small Groups, Bible Book Introductions, Cultural and Historical Articles, Topical Scripture Lists, Charts, Tables, and 18 Full-Color Maps at the back.
One of the things I appreciated is the inclusion of background information in the maps section regarding the Divided Kingdoms of Israel and Jesus’ ministry. I found both helpful.
Have you read this Bible? If so, what was your impression of it?
I wish you well.

Gateway Publishing provided me with two complimentary copies of Fresh Start Bible through Blog About Blogger Network. I gave one of the Bibles to a teen in CPS-ordered foster care, praying it will be beneficial in guiding him on the path he should go.
