My Holy Bible for Girls

9780310758969





I am accustomed by now to the onslaught of specific oriented Bibles, from the men's devotional to the archaeology Bible and the word study Bible, all have something to offer for the student of the Bible.  The My Holy Bible for Girls is no different.  This new Bible put out by Zondervan is beautiful in its appearance and looks much like a personal journal would.  The turquoise color and the elastic band going around the Bible makes it a welcome addition to the growing number of individualized Bibles.

The margins on the sides of the Scripture are full of room for notes, drawings, or anything that comes to mind when reading a particular passage.  My daughter really likes this Bible and its journaling feature because she's always wanting to put her own thoughts on paper.  The entire NIV text is big enough to read and comes with an easy to read font.  The Bible is designed for younger girls but I think the appeal of this type of journaling Bible is much wider, from young to old.  One of the best features of the Bible is the section on How to Use the Bible, which helps girls understand the Bible, what they are reading, and how to apply it to everyday living.

This Bible would be a great gift for Christmas for a young girl or any woman who loves to journal and takes notes while reading God's Word.

Thanks to Handlebar Marketing and Zondervan for the copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Roger writes, "You are a shooting star. Your light trails across the heavens.  I blinked and you were gone."  We were full of anticipation at the first and second ultrasounds, and there was the picture of our little boy Jackson, his developing face and little …

The Catholic Novelist in the Protestant South

Mystery and Manners: Occasional Prose by Flannery O’Connor
A profound simplicity of thought, a penetrating vision of what it means to be human, Flannery O’Connor embodies the spirit of bringing fictional stories to life.  Others might call her fiction ‘grotesque’ in a rather unflattering manner, but O’Connor was not content to live up to their criticisms.  In this short book of collected essay and lectures, Mystery and Manners, editors and friends of Flannery, Robert and Sally Fitzgerald have given us a glimpse into the vision of her faith, style and life as a writer.   A lifelong Catholic, Flannery O’Connor sought to wed together the moral integrity of her faith with the character of her craft in writing.  Specifically, fiction for her was an exploration in imitation.
In a rather illuminating statement in the chapter entitled, “A Catholic Novelist in the Protestant South, “ O’Connor writes,
“I am specifically concerned with fiction because that is what I write.  There is a certain em…
