Book Review: Everyday Matters Bible For Women, New Living Translation Published by Hendrickson Publishers

Everyday Matters Bible For Women is a Bible that engages and meets women just where they are. Whether they have a career outside the home, active in volunteering, a stay at home mom, homemaker, or caregiver to a aging parent. Everyday Matters Bible For Women can help a woman maintain an everyday Bible reading time. The Bible is in the New Living Translation which is an easy to read and understand translation. The additional features include---Twenty-four spiritual disciplines or practices, and four types of articles---Everyday Matters, Everyday Profiles, Everyday Reflections, Everyday Q&A.
Contributing authors for the additional material are:
Denise George,
Jill Briscoe,
Nancy Guthrie,
Ruth Bell Graham,
Philip Yancey,
Priscilla Shirer,
and Sheila Walsh.
A further reading section is included at the end of Bible.

Positive Points:
  • Everyday Matters Bible For Women I feel is a well-thought and executed plan for encouraging women to read the Bible daily. Sometimes a study Bible can be too heavy with content that does not interest, or might even intimidate a person desiring to read the Bible.
  • Easy to navigate and understand the additional material.
  • The short/brief additional material gives an adequate and uplifting message. 
  • The type-font is bold ink and at least 9 to10 point text. 
  • The pages are not too thin and I did not feel as if they were brittle and would tear easily.
  • The pages do not reflect light, easy on the eyes.
  • Pages are double column.
  • Stunning colors: aqua, turquoise, teal, pink, amber, light-brown. 
  • Front cover is delicate and feminine, with an exotic pink orchid (one of my favorite flowers!) 
Negative Points:
  • No maps.
  • Little reference material such a notes or cross reference Bible verses. * A few, but limited.
