We at TruthBook feel that there is nothing more important than lifting Jesus higher, and so we are delighted to see this review of a new Bible titled: Jesus-Centered Bible Receives Christian Retailing Best Award on The Christian News Wire.
If you are unfamiliar with this new approach to Bible publishing, here's a snippet from the article:
The 'Jesus-Centered Bible' released in September 2015 and highlights all of the ways Jesus shows up in the Bible, including more than 600 passages in the Old Testament. Featuring distinctive blue letters, each passage is designed to point readers to Jesus, from Genesis through Revelation. The Bible also carries the classic red letters in the New Testament.
In addition, the Bible magnifies the ways Jesus answers life's essential questions, including "What's my purpose in life?" and "Why do bad things happen?"

Again, at TruthBook, we are Jesus-centered and Jesus-pointed - always. And we rejoice when we see such an enlightened approach to enliven these age-old Bible books to show how Jesus has always been the glue; when we seek Jesus, we seek everything.
If you are a Christian believer, we welcome you to our pages, and invite you to add The Urantia Book to your study of the Jesus-centered Bible. You'll find Jesus as you may never have known him before, and reading his life and teachings as presented in The Urantia Book will add to your enjoyment and appreciation of the Bible as never before.
The Urantia Book is not now, nor has it ever been, designed as a replacement for Scripture; The Urantia Book stands alone in its revelations about the Heavenly Father, details about the hosts of heaven, and important knowledge that fills in all the missing gaps in our knowledge of ourselves and our world and the history that has brought us to where we stand today.
But the most thrilling and detailed part of the book is Part IV, The Life and Teachings of Jesus. It too, stands alone, and yet it has a comforting, familiar ring to it, as many of the stories of the Master's life - and many of his teachings - are included. Anyone who knows Jesus from the Bible must be aware that there was far more to his life than the three or four years that are covered within its pages. The Urantia Book fills in all of those gaps, too, adding additional stories, context, color, depth, richness, and consistency to his life-narrative. And these are not just figments of someone's imagination; these are the actual records of Jesus' momentous incarnation preserved by celestial eyewitnesses of these events. Only since the publication of The Urantia Book in 1955 have these records been made increasingly available to the whole world.
Like the new Jesus-centered Bible, The Urantia Book contains references to Jesus from the first paper to the last. In The Urantia Book, Jesus is the one consistent link that connects all of creation for us. And this connection is finally and beautifully shown in this last part of the book.
We never suggest that anyone give up the Bible in order to read and enjoy The Urantia Book; quite the contrary, these mighty sources of inspiration and knowledge can be enjoyed together, one illuminating the other, one enhancing the appreciation of the other.
From The Urantia Book:
196:1.3 To "follow Jesus" means to personally share his religious faith and to enter into the spirit of the Master's life of unselfish service for man. One of the most important things in human living is to find out what Jesus believed, to discover his ideals, and to strive for the achievement of his exalted life purpose. Of all human knowledge, that which is of greatest value is to know the religious life of Jesus and how he lived it.
We take this mandate seriously; we hope you do, too. To that end, we again invite you to see for yourself the restatement of the life and teachings of Jesus in The Urantia Book. See Jesus as a youth, see him as he ministered to all sorts of people during his trip to Rome, see him as father-brother experiencing family life as so many of us do, read his teachings about affliction, see him as a devoted, selfless God/man whose entire life was dedicated to living and doing the will of the Father. And see him as the inspiring "Acme of Religious Living." that Urantia Book readers have come to love
Even more than the new Jesus-centered Bible, The Urantia Book is the most Jesus-centered book you will ever read!
