I just received from Thomas Nelson the Sisters in Faith Bible to review. Of course, I have not read it cover to cover, but that is one of my goals for the new year! It looks amazing!
I have, however, given it a good once over and LOVE what I see so far. I have read several of the passages of Scripture and the thoughts that have been incorporated as a side note with those passages. This Bible and additions to it have much to offer the reader. I know I am going to gather much insight from reading it this coming year.
This is a hard back Bible, KJV version, with a concordance in the back. It includes a feature index for the Sisters in Faith additions, and a place to write notes. The front cover says: Encouraging and Empowering African American Women with God's Truth. I am not an African American woman, but the authors that contributed to this Bible wrote features ALL women can relate to. They included articles on how a woman interacts with God, family, others, her career, and herself.
The articles are arranged in features such as :
QUEST and DISCOVERY -question and answer sections
NOTES TO SELF - snippets of wisdom from the Word
SHE SPEAKS -offers the reader a chance to look at life through the eyes of the women in the Bible
EMPOWERED FAITH - motivational articles covering all five areas of life
This would make a great addition to any woman's library or as a gift to a friend for the new year!
