Read an Excerpt

Genesis Every story has a beginning, a genesis. The beginning of God's story of his interactions with humanity is found in the very first words of the Bible. In the beginning God created. From the start God was present. He was at work. However, in the freshness of a new world where the first man and woman walked and talked with God, sin slithered in, marring creation forever. But the God who hung every star in place and laid every grain of sand upon the shore had, from the beginning, a plan. The whole of Scripture, and indeed the whole of history, is unveiled within the seeds of Genesis. It will be many years before we see the fruit of those seeds, but they are not years of dormancy. Throughout the world and within individual lives, God is actively working to redeem his creation. In Genesis we see him form covenants, bestow blessings, test faithfulness and turn evil intentions into a greater good---all for the purpose of one day redeeming the people he created in his image. It's a work that will continue until the end of time, but the beginnings for all of it are found in Genesis. The Beginning 1 In the be ginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was a form less and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. 3 And God said, 'Let there be light,' and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called t he light 'day,' and the darkness he called 'night.' And there was evening, and there was morning---the first day. 6 And God said, 'Let there be an expanse between the waters to sep a rate water from water.' 7 So God made the expanse and a 2 Or possibly became 1 Author: Moses. Audience: The people of Israel. Date: Between 1446 and 1406 B.C. Setting: The area called the Middle East today. Verse to Remember: In the beginning God . . . (1:1) 13 LOUIS SULLIVAN, the inventor of the modern skyscraper, said, 'The tall building . . . should be a proud and soaring thing that makes a powerful appeal to the architectural imagination.' Today, many women embody the same spirit of pride and selfsuffi ciency that is represented in the lofty towers that make up our cities. We focus on personal perfection. Many women seek the pinnacle of age-defying beauty through creams, procedures or surgeries. Some become obsessed with fashion or feel that they must conform to some media-driven image. Over time, it becomes easier and easier to build monuments to ourselves. After all, as the famous ad says, 'I'm worth it.' The builders of the tower of Babel shared a key aspect of Sullivan's vision of the tall building: pride. And they had one purpose: to build a name for themselves. They wanted to claim glory that rightly belonged to God---after all, they were worth it. The longing to climb higher than God didn't begin in Babel. Before time began Lucifer said, 'I will raise my throne above the stars of God' (Isaiah 14:13). It didn't end with Babel, either. The pyramids of Egypt proclaim the power of the rulers buried beneath them. Many lives were lost in the building of the pyramids, 'collateral damage' to the princes who built them. Often Egyptian slaves were killed when their masters died and were buried alongside them. But just as the Egyptian kings sacrificed everything to their own legacy, women often sacrifice the good of those around them for fleeting recognition, not to mention the humble spirit God desires. The rulers of ancient Egypt were not all-powerful---they died the deaths of mere men. Don't be deceived, your soul will not be saved by flawless skin or the perfect career any more than the towering mountains of stone raised over the mummies of kings saved them. What do you take pride in? What keeps you from glorifying God? Has your focus become self-absorbed? Have you become self-glorifying? The solution is simple: Whatever is keeping you from God, give it to him for his glory. Let your relationship with Jesus be the source of your significance. When you humble yourself before God, you'll be lifted up. Reaching for the Heavens R e a d : G e n e s i s 1 1 : 1 -- 9 Genesis 11:4 'Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves and not be scattered over the face of the whole earth.' reflection 1Name some of the towers you see others building around you that take glory away from God. What kinds of towers have you built? 2Have you ever taken credit for work when another person really deserved it, or has someone taken credit for work you have done? How did that feel? 3How do you think God feels when we take the credit for his work in our lives? RELATED READINGS Psalm 86:8--10; Proverbs 18:10--12; Matthew 23:12 'The one sole thing in myself in which I glory is that I see in myself nothing in which I can glory.'

I was searching for an NIV bible for my Nook and this one was the perfect fit! I downloaded several samples and this bible was the easiest to navigate and had the most options. I love that I can easily find the daily devotions and the bible study topics, as well as the specific books of the bible. Best money I have spent on an ebook ever. I may need to go get the hardback version now.

Love it, just wish there was a way I could enter exactly where I wanna go. Like I could enter James 1:2 and poof it would take me there ... otherwise AWESOME :)

Very difficult to find bible verses!! When searches are performed, it finds the devotionals and not bible verses:( Unable to use during church services:(

I have recently started reading the Bible and chose this as my main source. The NIV translation makes it easy to understand the meaning of the passages and not get hung up on language. The back of the book contains several reading schedules, such as 30 days with Jesus, 20 Not-So-Famous Bible Stories, and 30 Stories of Great Faith, that will serve well for years to come. I also purchased a copy for my little sister going into college, she loves it for many of the same reasons I do, easy to carry, motivational scenarios for women of today, and ease of understanding. This bible serves exactly its purpose, a welcomed positive, uplifting source in tumultuous times. If you are looking for "red text", indexing, or a study aid however, this is not the Bible for you.

The layout and navigation of this version is very poor. The print version looks good, so I was expecting quality from the ebook. Sadly, it is overcome with an necessary number of hyperlinks. You cant easily just flip through the pages. First, you have to navigate through several hyperlinks. Annoying! And, even then, the layout of the pages is ugly and inconsistant. The content is not my issue--just the way that the ebook was put together. Very disappointing. :(

I was searching for a new Bible focused on women's spiritual development. I was amazed at how easily this Bible breaks down the written word. The parallel examples used in this Bible assist one with a better understanding of how to apply spiritual thinking to everyday situations. I recommend this Bible to others.

I purchased this book as an e-book for my Nook. I love it! It is very fast and easy to navigate through. I started taking my Nook to church with me and can find the passages very quickly.

Its very easy to understand the messages in the bible. The daily devotions are great because it helps you relate to God's word from a woman's perspective. The only problem I have is that the nook is slow when turning the pages. I want to be able to get to a specific scripture before the church says amen!

I'm glad I bought this e-Bible for my Nook. Moving between books and chapters isn't super easy, but it's still worth it if you'd like to have an e-Bible on your Nook.

This bible is wonderful but every time I bring it up to read it flashes and makes my NOOK go crazy! At first I thought it was a message from God to get to reading but now I'm not so sure. Can I delete it and reload it, does anyone know?

BEWARE... this does NOT work on the pandigital novel! It will download, but when you try to load it to read... it gets stuck and never loads. You have to shut down the Pandigital Novel to get it to respond to anything further. Never had any other "nook book" issues related to the Pandigital. This is my FIRST hiccup!!!! I'm sad... cause I wasted $15 =(

I'm really enjoying this Bible and its daily devotions. The only thing I wish is that it was easier to get back to the suggested readings once I've read the first one, instead of having to go to content and daily devotions and starting all over again. Maybe I'm not fully understanding how the Nook works in that regard.

I'm sorry to say that this bible crashes every time I try to open it and will only open to the last page, can't flip through it or anything. Very disappointed!

I dont like how contents is set up. It would b better if contents were books of bible then chapter. And its often slow opening or force closes. I think its a BN issue rather than bible. I often miss scriptures in church because of closong and searching for chapters

For a non-techie like me, it would be benificial to have navigation instructions. I have had to learn via trial and error.

Wow...what happened to the price? I was going to buy it but it doubled in price.. how about having a decent devotional Bible that is a little more reasonable... Geez..they're ebooks.. why so costly?
Vallaria More than 1 year ago
I wanted an NIV for my nook and it is a great copy of the complete Bible. However, I was hoping for some more convicting devotionals than what I have encountered so far. The only suggestion for improvement I would recommend is having a reference search ability. I would like to be able to type in the book, chapter and verse I want to read and be able to go straight there. Also in basic printed versions often there is a small concordance in the back of the Bible. That would be a simple yet wonderful addition to this e-version of the NIV Bible.

Some interesting ideas, but not very entertaining.
