It’s possible that I’ve not been so excited about something in a long, long time. I labeled this book/product review because there is no way to review or critique the bible!! Can you imagine?
I was so thrilled to get the opportunity to review this new bible. First of all it’s beautiful!
We all know though that we shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover. Anything can look pretty!
This bible is beautiful outside because of the cover but inside because of His word!
Not only does it feature over 300 articles but these articles are broken down into four different types.
- Everyday Matters: a two-page article which helps us understand a particular spiritual practice.
- Everyday Profiles: challenges we face today paired with stories of women in the bible that experienced similar issues
- Everyday Reflections: thoughts on how best to apply God’s word in our lives
- Everyday Q & A’s: important faith questions with practical answers
One of my favorite parts are the Everyday Profiles. It’s encouraging to know that there are examples in the word to help me overcome any challenge. It’s not always easy to pair verses with what we’re experiencing. It’s wonderful to have it laid out so when we are in the midst of a crisis (or believed crisis) we have somewhere to turn.
I also found the Index of Spiritual Practices very helpful. There are 24 spiritual practices that are featured here. A few of these I found extremely helpful are celebration, faith, forgiveness, gratitude, and silence. Each of these 24 also list each of the four types of articles.
With life being as hectic as it is, this bible is a wonderful resource. I can pick it up, choose a spiritual practice I’d like to study up on, and begin. This a huge time saver. I want my time with Him to be savored and precious rather than complicated and rushed.
I love that this bible is meant for women and if I had a daughter this would definitely be on her gift list! I do hope that they come out with a version for men as well.
Do you have a woman in your life that could benefit from this bible? With only 94 days until Christmas, there is plenty of time to order a copy as a gift!
