The “everyday matters Bible” has much for women to study in it. Most important are the spiritual disciplines and the articles associated with them. Studying such concepts as Acceptance, Hospitality, Silence, Bible Study & Meditation are life-changing. The articles could easily form a standalone booklet. The Bible text itself is the New Living Translation – everyday language that is easily understood by today’s women. Women who are used to some of the “older” translations may question the veracity of the text, but the readability is great for someone just starting out.
However, as pretty as the Bible is, I found it difficult to navigate – the main identification for books of the Bible is turquoise borders on the first page of each book. A light-colored, leaf design and the name of the book are written vertically on each page, but are hard to see/identify. The pages numbers are much more prominent. Unless you have a good understanding as to the location of the books in the bible from a spacial standpoint, this design, coupled with the hard-cover format, will be hard to use.
