Catholic Women's Bible NABRE

Our Sunday Visitor will be publishing the Catholic Women's Bible NABRE sometime this fall.

Here is the description from OSV:

But when the fullness of time had come, God sent his Son, born of a woman.- Galatians 4:4

Women played a vital role in salvation history, as well as the history of the Catholic Church. Whatever our state in life, our vocation is special, unique, and necessary. We are natural-born community builders. We sacrifice self for the benefit of families, children, and friends. We possess what Blessed John Paul II called "feminine genius." We are different.

The Women's Bible, NABRE gives Catholic women the refreshing opportunity to delve into the trusted NABRE version of the Bible plus nourish our "feminine genius" with 88 full-color inserts that feature lively stories and information of specific interest to women.

Through excellent story-telling and solid Catholic teaching you'll find inspiration and encouragement presented in a way that connects with us in the here and now. You'll learn from amazing Biblical women:
  • Gomer and the amazing gift of forgiveness
  • The Canaanite Woman and maintaining a sense of humor
  • Herodias and Salome and a mother's influence on her daughter
  • Sapphira and the importance of integrity
  • Mary Magdalene on facing judgment and criticism
  • And much more!
Women's Bible, NABRE is perfect for both personal Scripture study as well as daily devotion. Questions for personal reflection can be used in women's group studies.

"In fact, woman has a genius all her own, which is vitally essential to both society and the Church." --John Paul II, Angelus Address, 23 July 1995

Nice cover, but niche bibles seem to me to be more of a modern marketing device than serving any real spiritual purpose.
