Genesis Every story has a beginning, a genesis. The beginning of God's story of his interactions with humanity is found in the very first words of the Bible. In the beginning God created. From the start God was present. He was at work. However, in the freshness of a new world where the first man and woman walked and talked with God, sin slithered in, marring creation forever. But the God who hung every star in place and laid every grain of sand upon the shore had, from the beginning, a plan. The whole of Scripture, and indeed the whole of history, is unveiled within the seeds of Genesis. It will be many years before we see the fruit of those seeds, but they are not years of dormancy. Throughout the world and within individual lives, God is actively working to redeem his creation. In Genesis we see him form covenants, bestow blessings, test faithfulness and turn evil intentions into a greater good---all for the purpose of one day redeeming the people he created in his image. It's a work that will continue until the end of time, but the beginnings for all of it are found in Genesis. The Beginning 1 In the be ginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was a form less and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. 3 And God said, 'Let there be light,' and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called t he light 'day,' and the darkness he called 'night.' And there was evening, and there was morning---the first day. 6 And God said, 'Let there be an expanse between the waters to sep a rate water from water.' 7 So God made the expanse and a 2 Or possibly became 1 Author: Moses. Audience: The people of Israel. Date: Between 1446 and 1406 B.C. Setting: The area called the Middle East today. Verse to Remember: In the beginning God . . . (1:1) 13 LOUIS SULLIVAN, the inventor of the modern skyscraper, said, 'The tall building . . . should be a proud and soaring thing that makes a powerful appeal to the architectural imagination.' Today, many women embody the same spirit of pride and selfsuffi ciency that is represented in the lofty towers that make up our cities. We focus on personal perfection. Many women seek the pinnacle of age-defying beauty through creams, procedures or surgeries. Some become obsessed with fashion or feel that they must conform to some media-driven image. Over time, it becomes easier and easier to build monuments to ourselves. After all, as the famous ad says, 'I'm worth it.' The builders of the tower of Babel shared a key aspect of Sullivan's vision of the tall building: pride. And they had one purpose: to build a name for themselves. They wanted to claim glory that rightly belonged to God---after all, they were worth it. The longing to climb higher than God didn't begin in Babel. Before time began Lucifer said, 'I will raise my throne above the stars of God' (Isaiah 14:13). It didn't end with Babel, either. The pyramids of Egypt proclaim the power of the rulers buried beneath them. Many lives were lost in the building of the pyramids, 'collateral damage' to the princes who built them. Often Egyptian slaves were killed when their masters died and were buried alongside them. But just as the Egyptian kings sacrificed everything to their own legacy, women often sacrifice the good of those around them for fleeting recognition, not to mention the humble spirit God desires. The rulers of ancient Egypt were not all-powerful---they died the deaths of mere men. Don't be deceived, your soul will not be saved by flawless skin or the perfect career any more than the towering mountains of stone raised over the mummies of kings saved them. What do you take pride in? What keeps you from glorifying God? Has your focus become self-absorbed? Have you become self-glorifying? The solution is simple: Whatever is keeping you from God, give it to him for his glory. Let your relationship with Jesus be the source of your significance. When you humble yourself before God, you'll be lifted up. Reaching for the Heavens R e a d : G e n e s i s 1 1 : 1 -- 9 Genesis 11:4 'Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves and not be scattered over the face of the whole earth.' reflection 1Name some of the towers you see others building around you that take glory away from God. What kinds of towers have you built? 2Have you ever taken credit for work when another person really deserved it, or has someone taken credit for work you have done? How did that feel? 3How do you think God feels when we take the credit for his work in our lives? RELATED READINGS Psalm 86:8--10; Proverbs 18:10--12; Matthew 23:12 'The one sole thing in myself in which I glory is that I see in myself nothing in which I can glory.'

The latest version of the Women's Devotional bible is beautifully updated to a superior level of design and content. It's come a long way baby! ( I have to admit that the previous versions were so old fashioned and boring that I was never tempted to purchase it even though I thought the concept was great for women.) But this is more like it! It has a lovely two colour (green & brown) design layout--it's just gorgeous. It's the perfect size, compact enough for carrying but big enough so that it's very legible for all those forty something's and older that need a little help with the reading thing. The content is amazing. I love interactive bibles and I used to lean more to the youth bibles as they tended to have more notes, questions and interactive commentary that are engaging and draw out the meaning and relevance and application of God's word to your life. And now I've finally found this same application in this women's bible. The wonderful full page devotionals that are so relevant to women comes with a sidebar scripture it's based on, sidebar questions to stir you to apply God's word to your life and related scripture references for extra study. There's even some space leftover on these pages that you could even write your answer or inspirational notes if your like me and like to write in your bible. This is a lovely bible! Highly recommended! Zondervan, you definitely know how to make bibles! Now, if only you could figure out a way to make a New Living Translation version of this bible, then I would be transported!!

I love that it is easy to navigate, on my Kindle, to quickly find which book, or verse I want to look at in the Bible. This Women's Devotional Bible is nicely layed out and is so easy to read! I cannot wait to go on my holiday, in a few days, and have access to my Bible. Before, when going on vacation, I would not take a Bible, only due to the fact that (most) Bibles, in general are very heavy. On the plane, with the fact that it is common to be charged for overweight luggage, it is so awesome I can now easily take my Women's Bible with me without any worries! I won't leave home without it now! I am a happy girl!

This Women's Bible is amazingly beautiful to behold! It presents God's words in a manner that touches a woman's feminine heart --- just by the visuals alone! Within this Bible the reader will find God's eternal messages, and questions set forth to the reader to help her think about her role as a vessel of God. In addition, many of the words of inspiration by reknown Christian women drive home, to the reader, just how important she is to God. In short, this is an absolutely cool presentation of God's words. It will surely appeal to women of all ages.

I've had several Women's Devotional Bibles and have given them as gifts, as well...but this is the best I've had. The messages from the women writers are more impacting, more thought provoking and applicable. I like the fact that there are several additional readings, as well. And the questions definitely cause reflection. And, I absolutely love the green color of the leather and that this version is my favorite, the NIV. Thank you so much.

When I ordered this Bible I must admit that the picture of the cover was the first thing that attracted me to it. At the time I was looking for another Woman's Bible. I stumbled upon this one by accident. While compairing the two Bibles I opted for this one and I am so glad I did. It truly is a Woman's Bible. The Bible I had been using was okay, but I wanted one that was a little more femine.

This Bible is femine while not being to over the top. It has some great quotes in it from some great women. It also has certain Bible verses picked out that would be easy to memorize (if you are in to that). I'm following the daily devotionals and loving it. There are 3 questions with each devotional that they give you to think about. I've been keeping a journal and writing the questions/answers down.

All in all a great Bible!

A great women's devotional that starts the day or end the evening giving praise to our wonderful Lord and Savior. It provides us with a fresh look at some of the women in the Bible and gives us a new perspective on stories of the old testament. Having this devotional on the kindle makes me more consistent in my readings as I carry my kindle with me everywhere. All of my favorite readings in one spiffy device enables me to do my devotions and engage in other readings at any given time. I love my kindle that allows me the flexibility of being able to do this!!

If you are looking for a new Bible, then the New Women's Devotional Bible is one that you may want to consider. It is published by Zondervan and is written in the New International Version. Before each book, there is an introduction which gives basic facts and information about the book. There are devotions for each week day and also a devotion for each weekend. The devotions correspond with the Bible reading you and give helpful thoughts and questions that you can reflect on. Also, there are thoughts that correlate with the Scripture passages in small boxes throughout the Bible. For example, Matthew 24:35 God is Eternal. "Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away."
There are some other helpful resources included as well. There is a subject index as well as reading plan. Additionally, in the preface of the Bible, it gives helpful information about the Bible and how it is sectioned off.
Overall, I think this is a very user friendly Bible with some really great devotionals for your quiet time. I enjoyed that the devotions were not just written by one person, but by many different women, including Anne Graham Lotz, Edith Schaeffer, Priscilla Shirer, Joni Eareckson Tada, Carol Kent and Liz Curtis Higgs to name just a few.
I would highly suggest that you consider this Bible if you are looking for a solid devotional Bible. I was provided with a copy of this book in exchange for my review by the publisher via NetGalley. I was not obligated to provide a positive review.
