8God saved us by his grace when we believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. 9Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. - Ephesians 2:8-9 - New Living Translation (NLT)

In this age of being able to practically shop for everything online, sometimes it is necessary for the 'hands-on' experience of actually picking up and examining an item. This is particularly true when considering a new Bible. With so many translations and styles, it is easier to browse through a selection before making a choice.
