The Women's Study Bible (NIV) | Book Review
With this Bible being in one of the most popular translations, it is really easy to read and understand. The publishers have included, in the footnotes of the pages, extra study notes to help you during your quiet time spent immersing yourself in the words of God.
Before each book, there is a page of introduction. These tell you a little about the book you are getting ready such as who the author of the book was, when the book was written, some background information that might be of interests and a wonderful outline of the book.
While reading the Bible I found there are a few features that I just absolutely love. They have put inspirational quotes throughout the scripture that encourage and inspire. Along with the quotes, the other features are the diagrams and graphics that are included in the text. Some of them include: Family trees, images of clothing from that time, and various tables of information. Such information as Spiritual Welfare Strategies, The Seven Churches of Revelations and so much more.
I cant forget to mention the TONS of character profiles of women in Biblical times. You just might be able to see some of yourself in them.
There is so much information in this Bible that I could just spend hours studying.
Thanks to the features above and the included articles from well known authors Stormie Omartain, Nancy Leigh DeMoss, etc, this Bible has quickly became my new favorite study Bible. I don’t think I will find a study Bible that I love more than this one. It’s great for diving into God’s word and finding how it can apply to your life so that you may live the life of joy and happiness that God has intended for you.
I was sent the hardcover of this Bible but, Thomas Nelson has a gorgeous "leather-look" version as well. It's beautiful. You must take a peak.
*I received a complimentary copy of this book from Thomas Nelson for the purpose of this review. All opinions are my own.*
