Sisters of Faith KJV Bible Review

I can't even tell you how excited I was to find the new Sisters of Faith KJV Bible on Booksneeze to review. I've been wanting a new Bible for a long time and here was my chance! I love this Bible and highly recommend it to everyone. Although it does plainly say on the front "Encouraging and Empowering African-American Women with God's Truth" it obviously does not limit itself to just that category of person.

There are several really nice features of this Bible. The "She Speaks" section has stories from the point of view of women in the Bible, such as Noah's wife, Rebekah, Tirzah, etc.

Throughout the Bible are sections (like "righteousness", "fear", "extended family") where a verse is taken and expounded upon. This includes a practical application to life and a prayer.

Each book of the Bible begins with a brief overview and how it relates to sisters in faith. There are nice maps in the back of the Bible, and a section for note-taking. There is a pretty lengthy concordance and a feature index included.

I have read a lot of this Bible since receiving it, but there are still some parts I have not even gotten to yet - apparently there are poems hidden in some of the pages, motivational articles, and even lessons of faith through modern-time women. These are supposed to be short snippets, like one of the items labeled "Note to self" which reads, "God has you here for a reason. Be excited for each new day. Jeremiah 29:11. As I grow older, I grow wiser... Rejoice in the new day!"

The Bible has thick pages which are easy to write on and the columns are wide enough to take some notes on, although you will have to write pretty small. This is a great devotional/study Bible, especially for women, and add the fact that it's KJV (which I actually do like), it's definitely a Bible I highly recommend!

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
