I had recently been searching for a new Bible specifically geared towards women in the New Living Translation and found the Everyday Matters Bible for Women.
Not only is it beautiful, but it features twenty-four disciplines with additional content from Christian leaders (Sally Clarkson, Holley Gerth, Nancy Ortberg, Priscilla Shirer, Joni Eareckson Tada, Kay Warren, Sheila Walsh, Ann Voskamp, and many more) to help understand and apply these disciplines.
Each book of the Bible has an introduction with details about the background, message, time, and also includes an outline.
There are two page articles which share more about the specific spiritual discipline.
There are also smaller articles on these practices throughout each book.
At the front of the Bible is a brief description of each of the twenty-four disciplines matched with a specific icon which makes it easier to identify them within the text.
In the back of the Bible is an index of the spiritual practices as well.
Every discipline is explored in four ways:
• Everyday Matters. Two-page articles introduce major themes and focus on an essential part of understanding and practicing a discipline.
• Everyday Profiles. Profiles of twenty-five Biblical women highlight a particular discipline.
• Everyday Q & A’s. Short articles delve into a difficult aspect of the spiritual practice and offer practical help on incorporating the discipline into your daily life.
• Everyday Reflections. Selections illustrate ways to personalize and apply God’s Word to your own situation.
It also provides additional scripture relevant to the practice.
Also included in the back of the Bible is instructions
on how to use this Bible in a small group study.
I have been using this Bible ever since I received it and absolutely LOVE it.
