There will always be a need for devotional Bibles that are targeted to a specific audience. One such Bible is Crossway’s ESV Women’s Devotional Bible. There are many different types of devotional Bibles. Some are focused on daily devotions, and they’re not much use as a regular Bible. Others have devotional articles placed throughout the text. This one from Crossway is one of those with articles throughout the text. This make for a better choice because it can be used as a carry and reading Bible. Like many Crossway study Bibles, this also has the benefit of an online...Read More
Most of the Bibles that I review are complete Bibles. I rarely read a stand-alone Bible book. Every now and then one comes along that makes sense as a stand-alone book. Crossway’s The Psalms is one such book. The edition I’m reviewing is brown and walnut TruTone over board and it has some impressive specs. Cover and Binding This isn’t a basic hardcover. It’s a two-color TruTone, complete with perimeter stitching, over board. I love the texture and feel of the cover. I doesn’t look or feel like imitation leather. I would love to see other Bibles available with...Read More
Hendrickson’s KJV Devotional Bible is not your typical devotional Bible. It pulls from 400 years of writings from 185 authors to give you 400 devotions sprinkled throughout the text. Even though it’s set in verse format, the layout is nicer than normal because poetry is indented, setting it apart from the rest of the text. Pros Thick paper Sewn binding Poetry indented Cons Pages are severely stuck together out of the box Doesn’t lay flat out of the box Features KJV Imitation leather Sewn binding Presentation page History of the KJV 400 devotions Red letter Section headings Book introductions...Read More
Before I get into my review there are some disclaimers: 1. Aiden Wilson Tozer was a pastor in the Christian and Missionary Alliance, a Charismatic Denomination. I am neither promoting or detracting charismatic denominations; rather I am trying to be up front and honest with you. 2. I purchased this Bible at my own expense and this may be reflected in my review. “The Word of God well understood and religiously obeyed is the shortest route to spiritual perfection. Nothing less than a whole Bible can make a whole Christian.” —A. W. Tozer A little about Tozer A “twentieth-century prophet” they called him even in his lifetime. For 31 years A. W. Tozer was pastor of Southside Alliance Church in Chicago, where his reputation as a man of God was citywide. Concurrently he became editor of Alliance Life, a responsibility he fulfilled until his death in 1963. His greatest legacy to the Christian world has been more than 40 books. Hendrickson has released two versions of this excellent Bible, a KJV Titled the AW Tozer Bible and an NIV titled the Pursuit of God Bible. The only difference I was able to find between the two is the translation and title. I suspect the differing title for the KJV is due to the propensity of charismatics to use the King James.

Daily reading Bibles are a great way to read the Bible through in a year. They have the Bible arranged for you, separated by day, so you can just pick it up and read the days’ reading without having to put any thought into the reading plan itself. There are many choices. The hard part is knowing which one would work for you. There are several choices for the plan in daily reading Bibles. You can read the Bible in Biblical order, chronologically, have a morning and evening reading, or read portions from various books (Law, Prophets, Psalms/Proverbs, Gospels,...Read More
