The CEB Women’s Bible is a full-featured, readable, and reliable women’s Bible for women’s groups and daily private devotion. It includes articles, reflections, and profiles on topics and biblical characters from women’s studies and women’s religious experience that are not typically found in Bibles for a non-academic audience. The goal was to produce a guide to help women grow in their understanding of and engagement with the Bible, and the life of a congregation.
The CEB Women’s Bible is intended for women in church leadership, women in the pews, and women who value spiritual practice in their lives. It is ideal for women who value equality and discussions related to issues of gender and justice and how those ideas are lived out through their faith.

About the Author
The Common English Bible is a translation completed in 2011. One hundred and twenty biblical scholars from twenty-two faith traditions worked as translators. These women and men balanced rigorous accuracy in translation of the ancient texts with an equally passionate commitment to clarity of expression in contemporary English. The result is a clear, direct, and powerful English version of the scriptures for use in Bible study, devotional reading, and worship.
