Exploring: The Everyday Matters Bible

Everday bible

I got the chance to review another book from the fabulous CWA Review Crew called the “Everyday Matters Bible for Women” (practical encouragement to make everyday matter) and it simply has to be one of the most beautiful books on the outside as well as the inside! I was attracted immediately by the turquoise cover with pink orchids, which happens to be one of my favorite flowers only second to the sunflower. This bible is an NLT version and doesn’t have just one contributor but many including: Liz Curtis Higgs, Bill Hybels, Richard Foster, Ginger Kolbaba, Nancy Ortberg, Priscilla Shirer, Kay Warren and many more.
This is not just a bible but as you go through it also has articles written by the contributors that supplement the bible passage you have read. The bible is split into 24 spiritual disciplines at which you can read in any particular order you care to.  Each discipline includes a section on:

Everyday Matters: Articles that are relevant to the discipline to help you understand and practice that particular discipline.

Everyday Profiles: Stories of women of the bible who lived through and experienced the same things we experience today.

Everyday Q’s & A’s: Helps you to include these lessons in your everyday life and answers questions you may be asking.

AND

Everyday Reflections: Writers give you different perspectives on applying the Word of God in everyday life and shows the many possibilities for your personal life.

The many disciplines include:

Acceptance
Bible Study and
Meditation
Celebration
Community
Confession
Contemplation
Faith
Fasting
Forgiveness
Gratitude
Hospitality
Justice
Mentoring
Outreach
Prayer
Reconciliation
Sabbath and Rest
Service
Silence
Simplicity
Solitude
Stewardship
Submission
Worship

I also love that at the beginning of each book in this bible, there is an “Introduction To” which states the name of the book, the background on the story, the basic message, the time, and an outline which I found extremely helpful in finding my way around this bible.

This bible would absolutely make a great gift for that special mom, sister, mother in law, friend, or your own self.  In my opinion this book doesn’t so much read like a devotional but more like a self-help/self-improvement book with amazing stories and lessons to be learned but it could definitely be used as a devo.
