Unlike any other Bible available, Faith in Action Study Bible introduces a new and innovative 'commentary style' notes system that's divided into paired notes: 'There and Then' and 'Here and Now.' 'There and Then' notes provide background information and/or explain or amplify the meaning of the text. 'Here and Now' notes explore a variety of contexts, both personal and social/cultural, in which the passage may be applied today. The goal is to invite, coach, encourage, and inspire while using open-ended questions and invitations for reflection.
