With relentless dedication to sharing the gospel and expanding Christ's kingdom, the Robertson family has become a driving evangelical force of the twenty-first century. "The Duck Commander Faith and Family Bible" unleashes the power of their practical insight into critical faith issues, founded on God's holy Word.

My Review:   Happy, happy, happy is what I feel as I read The Duck Commander Faith and Family Bible.   The New King James Version translates Bible verses into easily understandable scripture.  For an example, "Have mercy upon me, O God, According to Your lovingkindness; According to the multitude of Your tender mercies, Blot out my transgressions."  Psalm 51: 1 Phil and Al Robertson each write 52 devotionals on Faith, Family, Fellowship, Forgiveness, and Freedom.   What impressed me as I read Phil and Al's personal thoughts was their honesty and the way they truly shared from the heart.   They wrote in plain, everyday language that all readers could understand and relate to.  There are also 30 Days of Lifechangers' stories. 
I thought the print was fairly easy to read.  I would have liked if the print were a bit larger for my own personal needs, but I could read it.  The hardcover edition has a lovely cover and would make a sturdy Bible to carry along for Bible studies and church worship.   There is a "Set Your Sights" Index breaking down the devotional topics even further for readers.   There are devotions based on:   Affluence, Anger, Anxiety, Apprehension, Assurance, Belief, Brokenness, Calling, Cares, Cheer, Children, Comfort, Commitment, Compassion, Concerns, Confidence, Consolation, Conversation, Conviction, Dedication, Distress, Endurance, Expectation, Fairness, Faith, Family, Favor, Fellowship, Fear, Fellowship, Forgiveness, Freedom, Gossip, Grace, Grief, Happiness, Healing, Heart, Heaven, Hell, Hope, Insight, Joy, Judgment, Justice, Kindness, Knowledge, Love, Marriage, Mind, Mission, Money, Parenting, Patience, Peace, Perseverance, Prayer, Purpose, Reassurance, Repentance, Resentment, Restoration, Righteousness, Serenity, Sin, Solace, Sorrow, Speech, Stewardship, Stillness, Stress, Suffering, Temptation, Tolerance, Tongue, Troubles, Trust, Understanding, Wealth, Wisdom, Worry, and Wrath.  This book will make a wonderful gift for men or families.   I plan to give my copy to someone special as a Christmas gift.  I rate this Bible 5 stars.  
I received a free copy of this Bible from booklookbloggers in exchange for my honest review.
