The Woman’s Study Bible poignantly reveals the Word of God to women, inviting them to receive God’s truth for balance, hope, and transformation. Special features designed to speak to a woman’s heart appear throughout the Bible text, revealing Scripture-based insights about how godly womanhood grows from a woman’s identity as a Christ-follower and a child of the Kingdom. Now with a beautiful full-color redesign, The Woman’s Study Bible reflects the contributions of over 80 women from a wide variety of ethnic, denominational, educational, and occupational backgrounds. Since the publication of the first edition of The Woman’s Study Bible under the editorial guidance of Dorothy Kelley Patterson and Rhonda Harrington Kelley, this landmark study Bible has sold over 1.5 million copies.
This Bible is just amazing! I am amazed at the vast amount of information that is included in this book. I have never owned a study Bible geared towards women and I am very happy to own one now. It highlights many of the women of the Bible, describing them further. It also includes articles on many topics that many people struggle with and face…tears, distress, childbirth, employment, giving, death, weight control.
There are many maps, tables, and diagrams sprinkled throughout the Bible that will be very helpful. I was excited to find a diagram of the various Millenial Views in the book of Revelation. There are a lot of great visual aids like this that help the reader learn more about the text.
There is commentary at the bottom of each page but not for every verse. I would like a bit more of the commentary but there are so many other features that it seems that there wasn’t enough room. The text size is not too small and Jesus’ words are highlighted in red.
The Bible is full color, which is definitely a plus. There are some very pretty floral designs on the opening pages of the books. I’m not a huge fan of the design on the cover of the book. It’s just not my personal style but I think many women would find it appealing.
Although I own another study Bible, I think this will be my go-to study Bible. I highly recommend this to all women.
I received this book from Booklook Bloggers to review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
