Young Women Love Greatly Bible – NET Translation – Book Review
Today I’d like to introduce you to an exciting new Bible that not only comes with a bounty of fabulous features that I simply can’t get enough of, but is also written in an engaging new translation that is easy to read and understand.
I’m talking about the Young Women Love Greatly Bible in the New English Translation (NET), which is available in the classic blue cloth-bound hardback edition that comes with the protective white cover that I received for review and the Brown Leathersoft Edition that I purchased for myself because truly, I’ve become a huge fan of this Bible!
What is it that has me so smitten with this Bible?
Well, for starters, I think that the Young Women Love Greatly Bible is a really good choice for women of any age who want to connect with God in a more intimate way. I’d classify this beautifully designed Bible as more devotional in nature than most traditional study Bibles. Some features, like the personal testimonies from women all around the world, help you to connect with the heart of God and to see the world as Jesus sees it. Other features, like the SOAP reading plans throughout most of the books and the wide margins that leave plenty of room for journaling your notes, invite you to spend time reading God’s written Word and falling in love with the Author of the Bible.
The 9.5 comfort print, the calm color scheme, and the spacious design make using the well thought out features of this Bible a pleasure to use:
- Book Introductions and Memory Verses for each book of the Bible.
- 50 Reading Plans for reading through Scripture with daily readings using the SOAP method.
- 10 Topical Reading Plans that focus on life’s issues, such as fear and anxiety, truth and lies, and friendship.
- 25 Letters from a Mentor that offer instruction, encouragement, and love from a seasoned woman of faith.
- 25 Heroes of the Bible profiles that feature women who followed God at different times and in varying circumstances.
- 25 Heroes of the Past articles that highlight women throughout the history of the church who made a difference for God’s Kingdom.
- 100 Devotions for encouragement that teach deeper insights about God’s Word.
- 66 Personal Testimonies shared by women from around the world..
- Reflection Questions, Challenges, and Journaling Space in the wide margins next to the Scripture text.
- 10 Maps that paint a visual picture of the biblical geography in the Old and New Testaments.
- 10 Detailed Timelines display historical events of Israel, the life of Jesus, and the early church.
- Two satin ribbons – one blue, one green – to hold your place.
- Clear and readable NET Comfort Print in 9.5-point print size.
One caveat that may or may not be of importance to you: the words of Jesus are not printed in red letters in this edition of the Bible.
The Young Women Love God Greatly Bible makes a wonderful gift to share with a cherished friend or relative but be sure to get one for yourself or the gift you purchased might not make it out the door!
As you can tell, I am a huge fan of this Bible, and intend to use if for my own devotional reading!
I rate this Bible 5 out of 5 stars.
