Part of the Signature Series line of Thomas Nelson Bibles 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).
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.
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.”
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.
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:
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)
greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate
actions of its members.” – Coretta Scott King
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.
