I was hoping to replace my heavy devotional Bible, but made a wrong choice. This one is for daily reading, not for taking to church!! Though light weight & easy to read, it would be hard to look up different passages that may be given during a sermon. I just received this yesterday, & may take it to church Sunday to see if I can use it. Otherwise, it will be good for daily devotions. It just isn't what I was looking for but I guess I'm stuck with it for awhile. Make sure you KNOW it isn't written in chronological order, but rather Old/New Testament mixed up!!!
My daughter was confirmed as a young adult over the Christmas holidays. She had a Bible she loved but wanted something she could read in short periods of time while at college. This gift was perfect for celebrating both her milestone choice in life and for her needs while away at school.
'The One Year Bible for women' is a paperback in the New Living Translation. It's one of my favorite translations to read from. The One Year Bible consists of ways we can use this by: one two or even three year plans as well as reading through the Psalms and Proverbs, taking you through them twice during the year. There are highlighted Scriptures to help you focus on a key thought in each day's reading. Also, there are quotes weaved throughout, here and there. I love quotes! One of my fav ones has been a fav of mine for a long time now and it's in here! :) It's says: "The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart." Hellen KellerNow, there aren't maps in this Bible. I was hoping to find some in here but there aren't any. Also, there weren't that many devotionals either, very few if you can find them!I do recommend this Bible for encouragement, inspiration and to help boost your faith in God's holy Word.
I obviously didn't get through this whole Bible in my short time of reading it. I did however enjoy the layout of this Bible. At the beginning of the Bible it gives the date and a Scripture reading for that date. But the other thing I enjoyed about this Bible is that it also gave some other ways to read the Bible (examples: Revised One-Year Plan, Two-Year Plan, Three-Year Plan, and Words of Praise and Wisdom in One Year). I thought it would be fun to alternate between the reading of the Bible in one year and Words of Praise and Wisdom in One Year. There are also quote (in pink) in the Bible which pertain to everyday life which are fun to read and give great insight. There is also a section called Reflection throughout the Bible which is very insightful and useful.
