The Woman's Study Bible reissued in this new full color edition from Thomas Nelson Bible is beautifully rendered filled with great resources throughout. Just to make sure we're on the same page, this review is of this new edition of The Woman's Study Bible, and not of the Bible in general or as a whole.
For the new release edition, it is available in a hardcover, imitation leather, cloth bound over a floral print board and a digital ebook. I love the imitation leather copy I received. I've started using this for my studies for the past 2 weeks in preparation for this review. First, I really like the full color aspect. It does 'brighten' it up a bit, making it easier to see the headings and the special sections. At the start of each book, the "information" part have always been a favorite of mine in study Bibles. It gives you a nice refresher for those already familiar with the Bible or an overview for those who are new to it.
What also makes The Woman's Study Bible different is the many female contributors to this particular edition, providing essays and prose that are profound and insightful. The 100 biographical portraits of over 100 women in the Bible is a great feature for us to understand the roles of women in the Bible, on how to be a Christ-follower and become a godly woman in His name. As a study Bible, it has all the hallmarks of what makes a great study - index, information, maps, timelines and family history, as well as a personal favorite, a concordance to look up specific words. And as a study Bible, the footnotes are just as important for us to continue further research if necessary. The size is a decent size, which is more for home or if you don't mind carrying it, one that expect a longer period of use. There's just so much info. A great Bible for any female, and would make a great gift as well.
Disclaimer: I received a copy of this Bible from the author/publisher. I was not required to write a positive review, and have not been compensated for this. This is my honest opinion.
