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.

the great spiritual migration

The Great Spiritual Migration by Brian D McLaren

Brian McLaren and his own pithy way brings to the foreground and emphasis on a new kind of Christianity. The kind of faith that Brian envisions is a kind of migration not been set in the bedrock of beliefs that is unmoving but rather shifting with both culture and with faith. His new book the great spiritual migration is exactly that, a pointed work that encapsulates a vision towards the future where Christianity is changing and its peoples lives are changed as well.

Brian states in the introduction, "but we also know that for a lot of people Christianity is malfunctioning, seriously so, and it's not pretty. This kind of frustration with conventional Christianity is what McLaren gets gets to at the heart of this message is concerned with a number of different clusters unbelief. One, namely that Christianity has been stuck in a set of propositions or beliefs that has controlled churches in the faith, rather then a spirit of love t…

Black Earth: The Holocaust as History and Warning

Black Earth: The Holocaust as History and Warning by Timothy Snyder
Misperceptions, misconnections, and missed observations are just some of the issues that Timothy Snyder raises in his book, Black Earth, concerning the Holocaust.  Snyder, no stranger to the frontlines of scholarship on the Holocaust, with his previous book Bloodlands, that concerns the land from Hitler to Stalin, takes a look at the Holocaust from new sources and new avenues of thought.  How did some nation-states survive relatively unscathed from Nazi persecution while others, notably Jewish populations, succumb to a wave of killings?  Also, what was the role of the Soviet Union in the war and how did Stalin effect changes in the Final Solution?  These questions are only two of the many that Snyder answers in his detailed account of the Holocaust.
One of the best chapters was entitled The Auschwitz Paradox.  Generally when the public thinks about the Holocaust, we think of Auschwitz first or at the top of our mental m…

The Paraclete Poetry Anthology, Edited by Mark S. Burrows

Bringing words to life on a page is hard work, and no work is harder than poetry.  Poets take the visceral, the mundane, and the disjointed and frayed things of life and put them on their head.  This new anthology of poetry put out by Paraclete Press and edited by Mark S. Burrows, takes the best poetry of today and brings together old and new poems from these gifted creators.  You find poems from Scott Cairs, SAID, Phyllis Tickle, and others.  The collection stems the span of 2005-2016 and includes both religious poems and themes, as well as themes covering a broad swath of topics.

One of the beauties of this collection is the array of poems that the anthology includes in its pages.  One poem in particular stuck with me as read through the collection.  Anna Kamienska is a wonderful Polish poet who interacts with the wider lens of faith while looking carefully at the world we live in.  She says in her poem named Gratitude, (44)
