The Mosaic Blog Tour stops here today! There also is a blog post of my review of the Mosaic Bible as well as a contest to win a free copy of the Mosaic Bible. Comment 50 words or less why you want and should win a copy of the Mosaic Bible. Also a big, big thanks to Tyndale House Publishers for allowing me to participate in the Holy Bible: Mosaic blog tour. I pray great blessings on Tyndale House and all they set out to do for Him! Thanks again!
Ruth Tuttle Conard is my blog tour guest. She is a contributor to the Mosaic Bible. She gathered the content and wrote the article for Pentecost week 14, on the topic of Authenticity. She is an author and lives in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Editor’s Note: The following is a guest post from Keith Williams, general editor of the Holy Bible: Mosaic. Keith has agreed to write this post for me as a stop on the Holy Bible: Mosaic Blog Tour. I have enjoyed getting to know Keith better through emails, twitter, and even meeting him for coffee as he and his wife were travelling through Louisville. Keith was willing to step up and write this post with limited time after an unfortunate timing conflict kept our original guest author from writing (a conflict beyond his control). Truly, Keith is a man dedicated to his work.
Holy Bible: Mosaiccelebrates the diversity of the church in many ways. The collection of art, writings, prayers, and quotes from around the world and throughout the centuries in the Mosaic material highlights this diversity quite noticeably. A lot has been made of the diversity of the content, and it truly is a great feature of Mosaic, but I think the unity of the church amidst this diversity is the more important point….

Fellow Polycarp enthusiast, T.C., host the blog tour today,
I Love the Mosaic Approach–You?Enter to win a free copy of Mosaic by posting a question or comment for general editor Keith Williams in the comments section of this post or by announcing this contest to your friends on Oct. 1. Details here.
I became a fan of the New Living Translation in 2006 when I used the NLT’s One-Year Bible as my reading program for the year. I found it to be highly readable and, like its predecessor, the Living Bible, refreshing.Also, I realized that I knew one of the translators, Dr. Joseph E. Coleson, and his comments on the translation boosted my confidence it in its reliability for general study.MOSAIC is a new edition of the NLT that hit my desk only yesterday. Already I like five things about it.1. Clear Reading Plan. Mosaic offers a unique Bible reading plan, and I think Christians need more of these. We want to read the Bible but don’t know how to proceed. Here is a clear pathway for engaging Scripture throughout the year.2. Emphasis on Unity. Mosaic gathers devotional thoughts from around the church and around the world. Reading the Bible alongside these thoughts will expand your view of what the church is and what it is doing in the world. We are one body, friends. One. Church. One. One. One. I think the editors at Tyndale get that.
Today I am pleased to introduce Tom Fuller, a pastor, worship leader, and contributor to the new NLT Mosaic Bible project. Check the post from yesterday to read my own review of Mosaic, and don’t miss out on the giveaway a couple posts earlier to win a free copy of Mosaic! With those points of housekeeping, I turn it over to Tom.
Tom Fuller: An email crossed my computer way back in February of 2008. The email was from the editor of a unique project and the invitation it contained was exciting – the opportunity to contribute a meditation to a new and unusual Bible project.
