The Women's Devotional Bible
Published by Zondervan, the Women's Devotional Bible is intended to offer encouragement, insight, and inspiration for today’s Christian women, based on the New International Version text of the Scriptures.
If you want to understand what the Scriptures have to say about your needs, your questions, your challenges, and your interests, the Women’s Devotional Bible offers an inspiring alternative to other types of Bibles. A full year’s worth of devotional readings written by Christian women for Christian women help you grow in your spiritual life and encourage you as you live out your faith on a day-by-day basis.
Each day of the week, Monday through Friday, you’ll read a short Scripture passage; then, near that passage, you’ll find a devotional message to help you grow as a Christian. On the weekend, you’ll come to a special treat, “Weekending,” which includes a short reflective meditation, plus a Scripture reading for Saturday and Sunday. Concentrating on the special needs and interests of women, devotionals cover such topics as love, marriage, work, children, church, friends, home, and much, much more.
Also available through Zondervan is a Catholic Women's Devotional Bible; Bible designed to make Scripture more accessible to Catholic women, focusing on deepening their spirituality by nurturing a love for God and his Word and teaching them how to use Scripture in prayer and daily life. It consists of the NRSV text with the deuterocanonical books, 260 Daily Meditations drawn from classic and contemporary sources, weekend meditation, character sketches of women of the Bible, and articles on living the Catholic traditions.
The Catholic Women's Devotional Bible is based on the New Revised Standard Version text. It includes a year’s worth of meditations, drawn from classic and contemporary sources, all written by women. Designed especially to meet the needs of Catholics and those accustomed to liturgically-based forms of worship, it includes a six-year reading plan tied to the lectionary, making it easy to locate readings for daily and Sunday liturgies.
Additionally, each weekend devotional is based on the life of a particular woman of the Bible, helping you see the relevance of her story today. Each book of the Bible is preceded by a brief introduction highlighting its historical context and its most important themes. Additional articles focus on topics like the sacraments, holy days, the liturgy, and spiritual direction, explaining the link between tradition and Scripture to help you gain a greater understanding of your faith.
