Lisa VW5 Stars Out Of 5She loved it...September 4, 2014Lisa VWI gave this Bible to a sweet friend who recently graduated from college. She was thrilled. I had her name engraved on it (as she had always wanted a "real Bible" with her name on it) and boy was she delighted when she opened the box. No doubt this graduate student will be reading plenty of books over the next two years...but none as precious and life changing as this ONE.
Jamie5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent women's bibleJuly 17, 2014JamieQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5There's not too much to introduce when reviewing a bible right? If you love Jesus, then I'm thinking you love this book too, so let's get right to it with this women's study bible!
Let's Talk Aesthetics
Labeled as the Teal and Sage LeatherTouch, it's so pretty! It's quality and long lasting, so this one will be able to weather the storms of life. There's also a few glossy pages in the beginning to record important moments in history (whether a wedding, a family event or your family tree).
THE MAPS ARE IN COLOR. And vibrant color too! There's maps throughout the pages, but the end ones are really pretty! It might seem like a random fact to point out, but I really like them.
As you can tell from the images, the pages are also pretty - with a teal vignette, highlighted features and clear notes/commentary.
Holman Christian Standard Bible
Confession. I've never heard of this translation before and its roots go back to 1984 and Holman Bible Publishers are the oldest Bible Publishers in America. Oops. But good news, nothing heretical here folks! Not that I thought it would be ;), but just letting the World Wide Web know. They explain the purpose behind their translation well in the helpful introductions:
"The name, Holman Christian Standard Bible, captures theses goals: Holman Bible Publishers presents a Bible translation, for Christian and English-speaking communities, which will be a standard in Bible translations for years to come."
They also have a bit different formatting than what I'm used too (mainly NIV or NASB), but they explain what and why, so you know what bullet points, specific typesetting, italics and other such things mean. They do an excellent job of explaining the translation.
The Spiritual Stuff
I'm a real fan of the extras this bible has. It's what really makes this study bible stand out. Here's a look at some of them:
Answers to Hard Questions: Throughout the Bible, hard questions are brought up, to wrestle though, think through and read scripture about. Questions like: Did Paul hate women? Does God care about victims of rape? What to do with temptation? How could a good God allow evil to commit atrocities? Why is the Bible considered different from other books? Backed by scripture, the variety of questions will help you learn, but also better equip you.
Biblical Womanhood Articles: Another fabulous aspect of this study bible are these articles which share insight on various topics and issues we women think about. Articles like "Inner Beauty," "A Woman Who Fears the Lord," "Antidote for Worry," "Sexual Integrity," "Submission in Marriage," & "Sisters in Christ." Of course there are several other topics, but they are really helpful and insightful!
Character Profiles: These were fabulous as well. Each provides a quick snapshot of the woman's background, her story and life lessons. There's so much to learn from the incredible women in the bible (and the not so incredible ones), I found these profiles valuable.
Written on My Heart Applications: These short and sweet paragraphs are sprinkled throughout, encouraging women in ways to grow in faith. I know I can always use encouragement.
Book Introductions: These are some of the best introductions. Not only to they offer a timeline, the basic who/what/when/where, but also why women should read it. There's also helpful outlines for my fellow planners.
I love this bible! It's worth every penny. I most definitely will be using for my quiet times. I also think it would make a beautiful gift for those looking for something extra special. What about you? Do you have a favorite bible version?
(Thank you B&H Publishing for the copy in exchange for my honest review)

DianaDavisPensacola FL5 Stars Out Of 5This is my favorite study Bible ever!February 18, 2014DianaDavisPensacola FLQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Study Bible for Women addresses topics of specific interest to womenâ€”what a great concept! Written by very godly, academic women, it will draw you into God's Word and its application to your life.
Along with excellent word studies, doctrinal teachings and character profiles of individual women in the Bible, you'll also find dozens of essays on relevant Biblical womanhood topics, such infertility, a woman's influence, parenting a strong-willed child, sanctity of life, marriage, etc.
I have especially enjoyed the "hard questions" strewn throughout. Some examples: "How do you teach children to obey?" "Did Paul hate women?" "Does God care about rape victims?"
I would highly recommend this awesome resource for any woman. It's studious, but life-applicable. And it's so full of charts and maps and devotionals that it will keep you absorbed in God's Word.
BTW - the leather is gorgeous, and the interior design and layout are ultra-feminine.
I'm purchasing copies for several dear friends. One is a teenager; another is in her eighties. One is a new Christian; another has walked with God for many decades. They're all going to love it.
