My take on this Bible:
When I first saw this Bible I thought, hmmm, it's geared toward African-American women, but wondered if perhaps it might not speak to women in general and after having the opportunity to use it for a couple of weeks I would unequivocally say yes!
The first thing that captured my eye was the appealing colors used, it is a purple Bible and the font is purple and pink with the pages being a soft white which causes the words to just pop off of the pages. Some of the features that I found inside were, The Heart, which gives a nice overview of each book of the Bible. Quest and discovery are questions and answers that explore some of the most difficult situations that women might encounter in life. Notes to self contains fifty snippets of wisdom drawn straight from the scriptures. Hands down though my favorite feature had to be the "she speaks" in which we get to look at life through the eyes of some of the women in the Bible. They are told in the first person which made it so easy for me to imagine these women and their lives.  There is also a feature index which makes navigating the Bible quite easy. A concordance,maps and several blank pages which can be used for notes round out this Bible quite nicely.
I have found myself using this Bible in my daily Bible reading and have found it easy to navigate, and have really enjoyed exploring the many features. While it is geared toward African-American women, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to any woman, after all aren't we all Sisters in Christ!
A complimentary copy of this Bible was provided in exchange for an honest review.
