The ESV Women’s Devotional Bible is a brand new resource designed to help strengthen women in their walk with God. Previously on the blog, Erika Allen, managing editor of the Women’s Devotional Bible, explained the vision behind the project.
Today we want to share what some leaders are saying about the ESV Women’s Devotional Bible.
“This devotional Bible is a helpful tool for any woman who longs to lean deeply into the arms of her Savior by way of His word.”
Author, Practical Theology for Women and The Gospel-Centered Woman
“At first, I truly thought, ‘Who in the world needs another women’s devotional Bible.’ But then I read on. The ESV Women’s Devotional Bible provides a welcoming table setting in its devotional material, allowing the reader to drink more deeply from the Word because its historical context, literary genre, and theological underpinnings are made accessible to the reader. The men and women who craft the devotional material become old friends, whose voices, wisdom, and infectious love of the Lord invite us to apply faith to our trials. We need Biblically literate women, and this Bible stirs up the reader to Berean-like training. By so doing, it helps increase our love of the Word.”
Author, The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert
“While I have been called to be a wife, mother, and grandmother in different seasons of my life—my identity must be in Christ alone. I am God’s beloved daughter and I desperately need to know how the gospel can rescue me from the penalty and the power of sin. This is the theme that the excellent contributors of the ESV Women’s Devotional Bible illuminate from Genesis to Revelation. This is a Bible you can buy for yourself and give to others with confidence. Thank you Crossway!”
Author, The Friendships of Women and Idol Lives
“‘The unfolding of Your words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple’. (Psalm 119:130) The ESV Women’s Devotional Bible is a wonderful tool for women to experience the unfolding (explaining, opening up) of God’s rich word. Through Spirit led study and the bible-centered devotional readings, God can use this tool to nurture the hearts of women in their love for him and the holy scriptures.”
Women’s Ministry Coordinator for Harvest USA; Author/Editor, Sexual Sanity for Women
“The profound insights contained in the ESV Women’s Devotional Bible seek to wed head and heart, compelling women to think God’s thoughts about all of life.”
Women’s Ministry Coordinator–PCA (Presbyterian Church in America)
“The tone of the devotions is personal, but not saccharine or centered on how people feel or what people think. Rather, consistent with solid biblical teachings throughout church history, the authors of these essays and devotions invite the reader to listen to, understand, and believe God’s inerrant revelation of himself in Holy Scripture.”
Author, Living the Gospel in Relationships; Co-author, Peacemaking Women and Redeeming Church Conflicts
