Review: NIV Once-a-Day Bible for Women from Zondervan and Walk Thru the Bible



Review: NIV Once-a-Day Bible for Women
Zondervan and Walk Thru the Bible
2011

As the date indicates this is not a new version of the NIV Bible, but a new edition.  This product has been arranged into a read plan that includes a portion of the Old Testament, New Testament, and a Psalm or Proverb.  Most of us have seen similar plans.  The nice part of this one is that you do not have to keep checking a list for the next segment.  Or have a series of bookmarks or however you may have marked the readings for this plan.  One set of readings follows the other and may be started at any time since the days are numbered and not dated.  

What makes it for women besides the pretty pink cover?  Each day has a reflection that focuses on an item of interest to women from the daily reading.  For instance a reflection I read today spoke to the worth of women as portrayed in the Bible and in this case Paul, himself.  

I have to admit I didn’t think I would like this arrangement.  What about continuity and all that?  Well, I discovered this works just fine.  In fact it even reinforces, for me, what the previous day’s reading was about.  I was pleasantly surprised.  

The paperback version is a comfortable size, the font may be a bit small for some in which case a Kindle version might work better since that allows for resizing to suit your needs.  As some have mentioned this is a Bible designed for a particular reading plan.  Finding any reference quickly is for the standard book arrangement style Bible.  Overall, I liked this idea and will probably continue to use it for my own daily reading.

This book was provided to me by the publisher in return for a review.
