Book Description

For many women, being a grandmother is God's finest gift---they have achieved great depth of experience and breadth of love, and they have grandchildren with whom to share these qualities. The Grandmother's Bible is the first Bible published for this active, engaged, Bible-reading audience. Over 60 well-known Christian women---including Ruth Graham, Elisa Morgan, Elizabeth George, Thelma Wells, Karen Kingsbury, and Carol Cymbala---share their thoughts, stories, and encouragement in this Bible's articles and daily devotionals. With a focus on daily prayer, this uniquely personal Bible offers guidance, inspiration, and practical tools as grandmothers share their love and God's Word with their grandchildren.
Features:
* 365 devotions -- readings draw grandmothers closer to their Lord and to their grandchildren
* Grandchild in Focus -- a simple plan to help grandmothers pray regularly for their grandchildren
* Praying the Scriptures for Your Grandchild -- Bible verses in a prayer format
* Stories to Share -- over 150 key Bible stories ideal for sharing specific life lessons
* Talking Points -- a practical guide for using Scripture to discuss over 40 relevant topics, such as salvation, knowing God's will, friendship, etc.
* Perspectives -- original, thought-provoking articles addressing personal aspirations and the joys and challenges of being a grandmother
* Special sleeve to hold grandchild's photo
* Custom presentation pages
* Two-color design in an easy-to-read type
* Book introductions, topical index, and more

5.0 out of 5 stars A true treasure April 27, 2008
Format:Paperback
This is the most beautiful gift I have ever received. Not only is it the second new bible I have ever owned, it was from my two grandchildren. The design of the lavender leather binding and the inscription "Grandmother's Bible makes it truly a treasure. It is also in a larger print for us "Grandmas to read a little easier. I love it.

Looking for a Bible with large print was my goal. I found this Bible and found the print to be easy for me, and perfect for my "old lady" eyes. I loved the quality of the paper, and it was strong enough to hold up to my Book Tabs. The leather cover is so soft, yet sturdy. When you hold this Bible it lays in your hands perfectly. If you lay it on your lap, it stays put and the pages will not fan-out on you. The colors are rich and there is a beautiful elegance to the look of this Bible. The devotional and commentaries throughout this Bible have been inspiring and heart warming. The little comments throughout the Bible, offering conversation subjects for us to talk with our precious grandchildren, with titles like, "Honesty" or "Jealousy" and so many, many more, with the verses listed for a quick trip to God's word to help you be a grandmother who cares about God being in the lives of your grandchilden is wonderful. I bought this Bible for myself 3-years ago. Then, I went back and bought two more and gave them to my beloved friends of over forty years. They loved this wonderful Bible, and it has become their special place for loving notes and even photographs of their grandchildren. And, what a blessing it is for us to have such a lovely Bible, that shepherds us to having not only the Word of God, but a wonderful aid to bringing the Word to our grandchildren. I HIGHLY recommend this book. You will not be disappointed, but will feel joy each time you look at it, and unconditional unlimited love of God and for your grandchildren. What could possibly be better? As a gift or as a purchase you make for yourself, this Bible is such a great blessing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Grandmothers May 24, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I gave this Bible as a gift to my wife for Mother's Day. She loves it.
It's large print is easy to read and it has nurturing stories scattered throughout that a Grandmother can pass along to her grandchildren as she teaches them about God and His amazing love for us.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome bible! May 14, 2008
By Mee-Mee
Format:Paperback
I bought this for myself but it would make a wonderful gift! You actually focus on each grandchild one at a time for 2 weeks - praying for the child, reading the child stories, sharing His word, and even getting ideas on how to share His love with your grandchildren. I have numerous bibles and this is THE best - you can't go wrong with this bible for yourself or as a gift! And the price can't be beat here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gift to family memers August 7, 2008
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This special gift was for my mother and my sister-in-laws. All are grandmothers. They have already started to read it and find it meaningful for their daily lives. I appreciated the writers that added their special stories and thoughts as devotions and encouragement to my family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Treasured Gift December 11, 2010
By DH
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I received the Grandmother's Bible as a gift from my husband. I love it! The Bible is not only beautiful but easy to read as well. This is a gift that I will treasure for years to come. The Bible was even nicer than what I was expecting. I only wish that Zondervan made a similar Bible for Grandfather's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Bible for Grandmas or Mothers.
The book is quite heavy but I was expecting that with a large print book. It has prayers for your grandchildren, along with short devotionals. I highly recommend.

2.0 out of 5 stars Did not have the guide for praying
The prayers for grand children were very repetative. Not enough of the "real issues"
that kids face in school. I did not think she tied them into the scripture. Read more
