Zondervan Releases Updated NIV Celebrate Recovery Study Bible

Find freedom from life’s hurts, hang-ups, and habits

June 2021 – Zondervan, a division of HarperCollins Christian Publishing, is proud to announce the release of the NIV Celebrate Recovery Study Bible in Comfort Print®.

A biblically based program helping those struggling with addiction by showing them the loving power of Jesus Christ, Celebrate Recovery® was developed by John Baker and Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in 1991. Celebrating its 30th anniversary, the proven and successful Celebrate Recovery program is offered in thousands of churches and has impacted millions worldwide.

“With the continued rise of damaging addictions in our world today, Celebrate Recovery and its Christ-centered approach is desperately needed to help people within the church as well as outside the church deal with their struggles with hurt, pain, and addiction,” said John Raymond, vice president and publisher of HarperChristian Resources.

Based on eight recovery principles found in Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount and on the underlying Christ-centered, twelve step Celebrate Recovery program, the NIV Celebrate Recovery Study Bible serves as a powerful and positive ally for those on the journey toward recovery. It offers readers hope, encouragement, and, through developing a relationship with Jesus Christ, empowerment to rise above their struggles.

“The Celebrate Recovery program has changed many lives, and the specially developed study Bible leads people to recovery in Jesus,” said Melinda Bouma, vice president and publisher of Bibles for Zondervan. “We are honored to bring this edition into our proprietary NIV Comfort Print typeface, making it easier to read and engage with this important Bible.”

Now typeset in Zondervan’s exclusive Comfort Print® typeface, the NIV Celebrate Recovery Study Bible lifts readers up and shows them how to walk, step by attainable step, on a path of healing and liberty. Features include:
