NKJV American Woman's Bible

I wanted to share something different with you today.  When I saw this Bible, I knew I wanted to check it out.  There are so many different Bibles on the market and it can be hard to pick one.  There seems to be a Bible for every individual (there are even Bible's for creative people).

The NKJV American Woman’s Bible attracted my attention because of the eye catching cover (I love red, white, and blue).  The book shows how women have influenced history and our lives with essays, quotes, and historical information (there is a historical section for each major event like World War II, Civil War).  We see how women have helped our nation during different periods in history.  There our quotes from Louisa May Alcott, Martha Washington, Eleanor Roosevelt, Helen Keller, and many more.  There are many stories in the book about women (under different virtues like faith, integrity, wisdom) and how they handled situations with God’s help and guidance.  Before each book of the Bible there is an introduction/summary that tells us the author of that particular book, the theme, and insights.  I have enjoyed perusing this Bible (reading the various stories, essays, quotes, etc.).  The essays and historical information are well-written, engaging, and easy to read.  I also like that the Bible is written in the NKJV (New Kings James Version) which is easy to read and understand.  The first time I tried to read the Bible, I was using an old family Bible (and it was not easy to understand).  I then discovered different versions, study guides, etc.  The NKJV is my favorite because it is written so the everyday person can understand and comprehend.  This book is also a nice hard cover edition (sturdy), but the pages easily stay open.  I give the American Woman’s Bible 5 out of 5 stars.  If you are looking for a new Bible and are a history buff, you should check out NKJV American Woman’s Bible.  It does come in hard cover and ebook versions.  

The editor of this book was Dr. Richard G. Lee with a foreword by Penny Nance. I received a complimentary copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest evaluation.

Thank you for so much for your visit.  I will be back soon with my review of Engaged in Death by Stephanie Blackmoore.  Take care and Happy Reading!
