NKJV American Woman's Bible
"Alexis de Tocqueville wrote at the conclusion of Democracy in America, his landmark work of the nineteenth century:
"And now that I come near the end of this book in which I have recorded so many considerable achievements of the Americans, if anyone asks me what I think the chief cause of the extraordinary prosperity and growing power of this nation, I should answer that it is due to the superiority of their women."
America is the beneficiary of the great feats, the deep faith, and the powerful influences of women throughout her past up to the present. In the words of Penny Nance, President of Concerned Women for America, the American Women's Bible "points the way for the women of our time...By taking on the mantle of godly virtues, women can bring about the changes needs to keep this nation strong." (insert).
The American Woman's Bible is to see how women throughout the history of this great nation have lived out those biblical values, such as courage, faith, honor, mercy, sacrifice, forgiveness, obedience, resourcefulness and more. The purpose of this Bible is not just to tell these women's stories. More than that, its purpose is to show how living by those values taught to us in the Bible can make an individual great, a community great, and a nation great. Its emphasis is not only the great accomplishments by American women of the past; it also points the way for the women of our time. This has never been more needed than now.
"Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies." ~ Proverbs 31:10
I received the NKJV American Woman's Bible by Dr. Richard G. Lee, Editor, compliments of Thomas Nelson Publishers for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation aside from a free copy of this Bible in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. I absolutely LOVE this Bible. First on all is it easy to use, but the encouragement you can find through the stories of the woman from American history you will find throughout the Bible who lived those biblical values that women strive to make a part of their own lives. There is a section about how a woman's journey to godliness can be achieved through their study of walking through the Bible and great reference points are provided so you can find the ones in particular you are looking for. There are quotes, articles, biographies and more added to make this truly a journey through the eyes of what makes up a godly woman without taking anything away from the Bible. Ones you will find are Louisa May Alcott, Dolley Madison, Flannery O'Connor, Rosa Parks, Dale Evans Rogers, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Harriet Tubman, Martha Washington, Laura Ingalls Wilder and more. For me, this is such a great Study Bible because it is so easy to use and love the layout of the New King James Version which is what most pastors use. For me, an easy 5 out of 5 stars!
