God’s Word has been a part of my life since I was child. But it wasn’t until my college years that I really started diving into the Bible. Since that time, I have gone through many Bibles and I still enjoy opening the pages of a brand new Bible.
So I was delighted to have the opportunity to review The Woman’s Study Bible published by Thomas Nelson. This Bible uses one my early favorite versions, the NIV.
A Few Things I Liked
- The editorial staff for this Bible was comprised of all woman.
- It includes a lot of great extras to enhance your study time such as topical notes
- relating to women issues, character portraits, and helpful charts.
- Each chapter includes a detail introduction that tells about the author, date it was written, background information and an outline.
- The color scheme used inside the Bible was appealing.
- The inclusion of inspirational quotes from women
Although I thought the dust cover of the hardback edition of The Woman’s Study Bible was appealing, I would have like to see the publishers use another color other than the dark tan as I often misplace my dust covers. Many of the verses that I would like additional commentary on are often not the one’s the editors chose to elaborate on further. However, this is an issue I find that is not exclusive to this particular study Bible. Overall, I think this Bible would make a great addition to any woman’s library and more than 1.5 million copies of The Woman’s Study Bible have been sold.
