Okay ladies, if you are searching for a new study Bible this is my pick for my favorite Bible for women. Holman study Bibles are the best of the best. There is nothing that compares. I have study Bibles in HCSB and NKJV translation, but this Bible is special. It's created for women.
It isn't exactly like a Holman HCSB Study Bible. This Study Bible gives us a guide to the women of the Bible. This is the first Bible I turn to when I'm studying and for my daily reading.
First let me say the inside of this Bible is gorgeous!! Take a peek at the B&H Publishing Group for a look at the inside pages. It is a creamy/teal color all throughout the Bible. One of my favorite aspects is the word study. This is huge in studying the Word of God. The word studies give information on the Hebrew/Greek/Aramaic translations so that it's easy for us to comprehend.
Another favorite of mine are the character profiles. This too is another amazing tool in studying the Word. When we know the backgrounds and personalities of those we are reading about it gives us a greater insight in understanding and we are able to relate to them even more so.
There are amazing outlines and the introductions to the Books of the Bible are outstanding.
I LOVE the Doctrine studies. You can find these all throughout the Bible. They are helpful in allowing us to have a greater understanding of the foundational beliefs of Christianity.
There are hard questions throughout the Bible along with answers. These are questions that often stump us in our walk. We need to know and understand why we believe what we believe and these hard questions guides us to scripture and a greater understanding of how to answer others when the world asks us questions that we ourselves often ponder. "Can we be certain that there is an afterlife? What about reincarnation or nirvana, for example? Are we responsible for confessing another's sin? How could a just God command His people to destroy a nation? Why are we not to consult fortune-tellers? How can I trust a God who has allowed such terrible things to happen to people? And many many more questions.
There too are essays on Biblical Womanhood. These include topics on Spiritual Motherhood, The Ministry of Hospitality, Marriage, The Judgement on the Woman, and many more. This Bible is jam-packed with great tools!
The concordance is outstanding and there are Bullet Notes for understanding the definition for words that we often pass over.
There are a ton of features to this Bible. The charts, maps, and reconstructions are outstanding!!
If you are searching for a Women's Study Bible this is the best! There are many colors to choose from. I have the chocolate genuine leather indexed and that is my favorite Bible. It is truly spectacular. So now all you have to do is pick out the color perfect for you. Really, this is one of those Bibles that you just love spending time in and one you would love to share.
This women's study Bible was a gift from B&H Publishing Group for sharing my review with you.
