My Thoughts
Sisters in Faith Holy Bible is a version of the Bible that isn’t just for women of color. It is really written for any woman in mind. As you can tell from my picture in the corner over there, I am not colored (and am usually quite pale). However, I really do enjoy this version of the Bible. It is a nicely formatted Bible that looks great and holds up very well – even if you throw it into your bag often, or are the type that lets it sit nicely on your bedside table or shelf most of the time. The pages are formatted to make it appealing for women to read as well. The fonts are in a deep purple and pink, with softer white pages.

My favorite part of the Sisters in Faith Holy Bible is the “Quest and Discovery” portions that answer questions about life and faith. I also really enjoyed the “She Speaks” part which are creative articles that were written in the perspective of different women in the Bible.

* Thank you to the publisher of Sisters in Faith Holy Bible, Thomas Nelson, for providing me with a copy of this book for review as part of their “Booksneeze” program. All opinions expressed are my own.
