Overview

The Catholic Women's Devotional Bible: New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) by Zondervan

The Catholic Women’s Devotional Bible is designed specifically to nourish a woman’s spirituality, making it easy to form a habit of daily prayer and reading. It includes a year’s worth of meditations, drawn from classic and contemporary sources, all written by women. Designed especially to meet the needs of Catholics and those accustomed to liturgically-based forms of worship, it includes a reading plan tied to the lectionary, making it easy to locate readings for daily and Sunday liturgies. Additionally, each weekend devotional is based on the life of a particular woman of the Bible, helping you see the relevance of her story today. Each book of the Bible is preceded by a brief introduction highlighting its historical context and its most important themes. Additional articles focus on topics like the sacraments, holy days, the liturgy, and spiritual direction, explaining the link between tradition and Scripture to help you gain a greater understanding of your faith. Meditations are drawn from a rich variety of authors, including: Joan Wester Anderson Sister Wendy Beckett Esther de Waal Catherine of Siena Dorothy Day Fran Ferder Briege McKenna Julian of Norwich Joyce of Rupp Mother Teresa Teresa of Lisieux Macrina Wiederkehr Scripture offers wisdom for important everyday issues like relationships, marriage, child-rearing, simplicity, prayer, and finding real peace. If you dip into it regularly, it will become a well of continual refreshment, nourishing your faith and strengthening your sense of God’s loving presence in your life. Features Include: - 260 Daily Meditations. - 52 Weekend Devotions, Focusing on Women of the Bible. - 50 Tradition Articles Linking Scripture with Important Elements of Catholic Life and Faith. - Complete NRSV, Catholic Edition. - Reading Guide Keyed to the Catholic Lectionary. - Indexes. - Imprimatur. 8.9-point type size

This Bible makes it so easy to learn and understand the scripture. I takes a very devoted person to read the Bible, but, with the daily meditations and suggested scripture reading, this Bible makes it really easy. This is a Bible I will buy for my friends and mother. I highly recommend this.

I am able to understand the writings of this bible and meditate on the scripture with the devotional reading for the day, the traditions, the weekend meditation, and book introductions, there is soo much to this book that you do feel like you are not reading it alone. I especially love the calender of readings in the back of the book. On any given day you are given a sugestion to which verses to read. It makes reading the bible as easy as just one section at a time.

My first thought when the book was given to me was that it must be feminist and liberal. How wrong!!! - It is a wonderful book that includes insight into why we as Catholics have certain traditions. It also includes highlights and information on women in the bible. The guided daily reflections referenced to certain scripture passage(s) makes opening and reading the bible more meaningful. For Catholics, it is a great way to increase our reading of scripture and being nourished by it. It will be a treasure for life for me. Thank you to the publishers and the one who gave it to me.

This is an excellent Bible to give to women of the Catholic faith who have not incorporated daily devotional readings into their routine. It is attractive, organized and informative. This edition makes the Bible less intimidating and encourages a close relationship of day to day life with the scriptures.

Thus far I've enjoyed this devotional; the stories associated with each reading are thought provoking and can be very touching. One thing I miss with this devotional is that it does not give the interpretation/explanation of the bible reading that I've had in other devotionals and I do miss that. Overall I am pleased!
