Product Description

Do you yearn to connect with other women who, like you, live the Word of God in the world every day?

That connection is what distinguishes the Living the Word Catholic Women's Bible from other Bibles for women: it includes nearly 400 pages of special features created for women by women—more than forty scholars, teachers, religious, authors, ministers, and speakers from diverse backgrounds, including Leah Darrow, Sarah Christmyer, Johnnette Benkovic Williams, Meg Hunter-Kilmer, and Sr. Maria Kim-Ngân Bùi, FSP. You can walk through scripture with other women who want to grow closer to God by reading and using his Word in their daily lives.

The Living the Word Catholic Women's Bible stands out among its peers due to its breathtaking elegance. The exceptional and elegant design enhances your reading experience by connecting numerous components throughout the book, such as fifty Bible biographies, 97 Living in the Light of Faith articles, Take it to Heart questions for meditation and journaling, and quotations from saints and holy women. The soothing colors and other aesthetic aspects make you feel at ease when reading the Bible.

Other characteristics include:

  • the trusted and easy-to-read Revised Standard Version, Second Catholic Edition translation
  • exclusive comprehensive cross-references to the Catechism of the Catholic Church that help you to better understand how the Bible connects with what Catholics believe
  • large, single-column text with plenty of room in the lightly lined, generous margins for journaling, drawing, and notetaking
  • high-quality paper
  • two ribbon markers
  • an introduction to each book of the Bible that includes an overview, outline, historical context, and key themes
  • inspiring and beautifully designed quotations from saints and other holy women, including Josephine Bakhita, Dorothy Day, Catherine of Siena, Hildegard of Bingen, Joan of Arc, Thea Bowman, and Thérèse of Lisieux
  • questions for reflection
  • prompts to help expand your reading on a theme in scripture

  • a feature index noting all the topical essays and introductions in the Bible, organized by category
