My thoughts: As we approach Independence Day, the release day of The NKJV American Woman’s Bible is here.  The timing couldn’t be better. We remember the reason America was formed as colonies was for freedom of religion, and this book recognizes the great American women of faith (not necessarily women born in America).

The NKJV American Woman’s Bible begins with “A Woman’s Journey To Godliness,” and continues with examples from our nation’s history of women who shows what it means to embrace faith in hard and difficult times.

General Editor, Dr. Richard G. Lee has done his research. He says, “American history is no stranger to the fact that God uses humble, unassuming ‘everyday’ people to do extraordinary things.”

I loved the behind-the-scenes look at our country. Sidebars are filled with quotes and qualities of virtuous women. Biographies add detail to the lives of many influential people, some of which I never heard of. Glossy inserts are packed with the stories of those who sacrificed and served their Lord and country.

The biographies include immigrants, pioneers, presidents’ wives, missionaries, writers, peasants, celebrities, slaves, singers and songwriters. Here’s a sampling of the quotes that grabbed my attention:

“You can be too big for God to use, but you cannot be too small.” – Nelle Reagan
“To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover the prisoner was you.” – Corrie ten Boom
“Faith isn’t the ability to believe long and far into the misty future. It’s simply taking God at His Word and taking the next step.” – Joni Eareckson Tada (I loved this one) 
”The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.” – Coretta Scott King

Do you love stories about the women of faith? In the Bible, Hebrews 12:1 says “we are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses.” They’re the ones who endured hardship and overcame difficulties with their faith in God. The NKJV American Woman’s Bible is an inspiring look at the ways women gave their devotion to God’s truths and the practice of these truths.

I gave my copy to my oldest daughter.  She loves it.  I was given this Bible for review purposes by Booklook Bloggers.
