To have a Bible especially geared towards being a woman is really a great thing. I know most of you are saying to yourself, "Whats so special about it, its just a Bible?" To me, its something that will speak directly to me much more than just an ordinary Bible. This one in particular has had over 80 various women from multi-faceted backgrounds pour into it. The features alone are really something to rave about. This Bible is loaded with them.
I love all the latest features included in this Bible but I have a few favorites I would like to focus on. I love the book introductions at the beginning of each book. I like it because I love the background information that I may not know. such as who wrote the book, the literary characteristics, and the themes of each book. I'm a history buff so that probably plays into it, a little.
Another great feature in this Bible is the detailed Biographical portraits of over 100 Biblical women. Amazing precision to detail should be noted here. I really like background information and learning even more about these fascinating women in the Bible. The editor and contributors researched thoroughly and it shows.
The is a beautifully bound study Bible that could lasts for years to come. With so many features that you couldn't possibly go through them all in one sitting.
