A Book That Will Change Your Life


I have at least 10 Bibles at home –softcover, hardcover and leather; big size and small size, in Chinese, English, German, and Chinese/English, old fashioned and modern translation. 

Recently I got another Bible — the newly released Jeremiah Study Bible by my favorite Bible teacher and preacher Dr. David Jeremiah. 

Dr. Jeremiah, senior pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church in San Diego, Calif., has been in ministry since 1969 and founded Turning Point Ministries in 1982. Through his radio and television broadcasts he reaches an estimated 200 million households around the world every week.

Not that I really need another Bible, I have to admit that I don’t even use the ones I have that much, but I just love Dr. Jeremiah’s teaching and would love to read his study materials. The Study Bible is in the New King James Version and includes over 8,000 study notes, hundreds of sidebars and more than 60 articles on “Essentials of the Christian Faith.” It is the culmination of a lifetime of teaching and studying the Word of God by Dr. Jeremiah.

The Jeremiah Study Bible: What It Says. What It Means. What It Means for You was released during “A Night of Celebration with David Jeremiah & Friends” at the Theater at Madison Square Garden in NYC on Thursday, Dec. 5, 2013.

Today I watched the part two of the “Night of Celebration with David Jeremiah & Friends” that aired on television on Jan. 12, 2014 (here is part one aired on Jan. 5, 2014)

In part two, Dr. Jeremiah talked about how the Bible has changed lives and will change your life, based on Psalm 19:7-11. 

The Bible Will —

  • Restore Your Soul (Psalm 19:7a, 1 Peter 1:23)
  • Renew Your Mind (Psalm 19:7b)
  • Rejoice Your Heart (Psalm 19:8a)
  • Refocus Your Vision (Psalm 19:8b)
  • Reinforce Your Life (Psalm 19:9a, Psalm 119:89)
  • Replace Your Doubts (Psalm 19:9b)
  • Reorder Your Values  (Psalm 19:10)
  • Redirect Your Path (Psalm 19:11a)
  • Reward Your Obedience (Psalm 19:11b)

Dr. Jeremiah’s clear teaching and his Study Bible will encourage me to spend more time in the Scripture and to make the study of God’s Word a priority in my life.
