The Everyday Matters Bible for Women is filled with practical encouragement to make everyday matter.
Many thanks to the author and CWA for providing me a free copy of this bible in exchange for my honest review.
Everyday matters bible for women is a beautiful bible with collections of personalized writing from leading Christian thinkers of today. Topics addressed in these authored snippets are focused on matters that apply to the modern women regardless of the many hats and roles they juggle in day to day life. Examples of specific issues addressed that were particularly timely for me included “Persistence of Prayer” focusing on the issue of continuing to pray for the same thing even when the request seemingly goes unanswered and “Connecting Our Pleasure with God” which recognizes that the good in life is a blessing and gift from the Lord for which we should rejoice. This bible highlights 24 spiritual practices including acceptance, bible study and meditation, celebration, community, confession, contemplation, faith, fasting, forgiveness, gratitude, hospitality, justice, mentoring, outreach, prayer, reconciliation, Sabbath and rest, service, silence, simplicity, solitude, stewardship, submission, and worship; each identified and organized by unique icon. This exemplary bible would make a wonderful gift for the Christian woman in your life and is highly recommend for personal use. The only improvement that would have benefited the women in my family would be a tab system to make it quicker and easier to locate specific books and passages of interest.
More Information about the Bible:
Today’s Christian Woman is so busy handling the challenges of day-to-day life that spending time in the Word can easily become yet another ‘should’ buried in that growing list of daily ‘musts.’ Created in partnership with Kyria.com,Christianity Today’s women’s magazine, the Everyday Matters Bible for Women is designed to help women develop spiritual practices that will make their lives richer, not harder. It offers practical encouragement and tools to renew, reinvigorate and restore meaning to everyday life.
This Bible features twenty-four disciplines—or practices—that position us to receive power and strength to do those things that we cannot possibly do on our own and make everyday life fuller and deeper. Each discipline is represented by a colorful icon whose illustration is a reminder of its meaning.
The contemporary language of the New Living Translation combines with content from today’s foremost Christian leaders to help readers understand and apply spiritual discipline.
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.
