- Great first bible for the young little lady in your life! by Julia on 5/14/14
Zondervan provided me with a free copy of this book for reviewing purposes.
This Young Women of Faith Bible NIV, by Susie Shellenberger, is a hardback study bible with a catchy, colorful cover that isn't too babyish or grown up. The NIV translation is easy to read and understand as it It draws your young lady into God’s word. The design on the cover is carried thru out the bible with the pink accents thru out . Aimed at the tween audience I feel that it is very appropriate for girls between 8 and 13. It is the bible that is “just like yours!”.
This bible features 52 full page bible studies that is linked to the NIV Women of Faith Study Bible so you can study God’s word TOGETHER! Some of the other great things that sets this bible apart from others are: Bookmark side notes, Journal space, "I believe statements" and "If I were there" stories.
*The bible side notes offer explanations or historical side notes to the scripture passage that you are reading. A great tool for understand some of the bible stories.
*The journal boxes leaves space for you to take notes as you read, jot down prayer reminders or noting something interesting from the passages on the page. I do wish there was a bit more space for the journal writing. The boxes do have details in them that takes away from the journal writing. These are often great points for reflection, however they limit the writing space. This is just my opinion and could very easily be corrected with a bible journal notebook to go along.
*Your “I believe statements” are statements of faith and foundation beliefs. *Your "If I were there”s give you stories that apply what was going on in real time. For example, when they were talking about no one listening in Judges 17:6 the "If I were there" highlights how maybe the girls in your class are not listening and may be using language that isn’t appropriate. What do you think you should do and what does God want you to do in this situation. This provides reflection time on our thoughts and actions, putting into perspective what we may face in our world.
Each bible has a presentation page with a place for you to put your child’s name, date and who the bible is from. The second page highlights your child’s Christian journey with the day they became a Christian, the influential people on their Christian journey, special bible verses that helped. This could be given as a baptism, First Communion or even a milestone birthday!
Each book then opens with a page about that particular book. It lists the author, when and why it was written, what we learned about God within this book, what is special about this book, and finally what some of the stories are in the book.
This bible is laid out to encourage the reader to want to start reading and studying God’s word. I think that it does a great job! I also think that linking it with the Women of Faith Study Bible and allowing you to study this with your child is a really great idea! You don't have to study it with your child, however it give you the opportunity to if you would like. It gives both of you some special time together studying God’s word and walking together on your spiritual journeys.
I was provided this book free in exchange for my honest opinion. My opinion does not guarantee a positive review. No other compensation was received.
- I love the Memory Verses that's through out this Bible really is a nice touch for young and old alike to remember the verses they want to. by aussiegirl on 3/9/14

YOUNG WOMEN OF FAITH BIBLE
I love the cover of this Bible, refreshing for a young woman.
I love the Memory Verses that's through out this Bible really is a nice touch for young and old alike to remember the verses they want to.
I think the pages for your Journal is nice but some don't have enough space to write your thoughts down. I feel if they had the Journal pages with empty pages or more space for your own thoughts to be written down along with the thoughts of the others would have been a better touch then the way they did it.
The side notes are great, the books introduction at the beginning of each book is also very informative and helpful. I like the Believe is nice and different for more helpful thoughts.
I really love this Bible for young women Matter-in-fact I really enjoyed the Bible for myself and I loved the added information for each book of the Bible.
I love reviewing Bibles because I get new information that helps me or that I might have missed in reading my other Bibles for some reason and then I can go back into my old Bibles and check it out they maybe worded different but nice to find and read.
Like I said the only thing I didn't like was the Journal pages.
I recommend this Bible for the young women to read because it does have a lot added of helpful information.
I received this Bible free from Book Look for an honest review I was not required to give a positive review just an honest one. The Opinions I have expressed are entirely my own.
- Excellent Bible for Young Lades 9-12 by Marsha on 3/5/14
My granddaughter and I waited patiently for Zondervans’ NIV Bible for young ladies. This review is presented based not only on my opinion but her initial assessment.
Very few things are more important to a 10 year old girl than how things look. As we opened the box and looked at YOUNG WOMEN OF FAITH BIBLE she smiled. I opened the book, to no page in particular, and asked her to read the commentary: “We are family.” She understood it. My granddaughter loves this Bible.
YOUNG WOMEN OF FAITH BIBLE is a New International Version study Bible written specifically for girls and it is very “girlie” and very appropriate for ages 9-12. Unlike “grown up” study Bibles it is not bombarded with details that young ladies may not be interested in. By incorporating short commentaries as an outside column, in pink with a butterfly on top,concepts such as: “Bad Things Happen” within the book of Job help put God’s words in an understandable form. Journaling is another tool utilized to explain a principle, for example: Mark 4:21-23 putting a flashlight under the bed versus putting a lamp under the bed. As with grown-up study Bibles various people are identified, with less detail of course, and each book is given a brief introduction.
YOUNG WOMEN OF FAITH BIBLE contains a mini concordance a weekly study plan and of course maps (in color)
What a great gift for your child or grandchild. What an awesome tool. Because my daughter and I were looking for a new Bible for my granddaughter the publication is very timely. My daughter looked through the Bible and gave her stamp of approval. However, I think the greatest review comes from my granddaughter Akira who says the Bible is: AWESOME!!!!!
I definitely recommend you purchase YOUNG WOMEN OF FAITH BIBLE. I will be suggesting my church purchase copies.
I received a complimentary copy of in exchange for an honest and fair review.
