DescriptionA Bible designed to make Scripture more accessible to Catholic women, focusing on deepening their spirituality by nurturing a love for God and his Word and teaching them how to use Scripture in prayer and daily life. It consists of the NRSV text with the deuterocanonical books, 260 Daily Meditations drawn from classic and contemporary sources, weekend meditation, character sketches of women of the Bible, and articles on living the Catholic traditions.
The Catholic Women’s Devotional Bible is designed specifically to nourish a woman’s spirituality, making it easy to form a habit of daily prayer and reading. It includes a year’s worth of meditations, drawn from classic and contemporary sources, all written by women.
Designed especially to meet the needs of Catholics and those accustomed to liturgically-based forms of worship, it includes a six-year reading plan tied to the lectionary, making it easy to locate readings for daily and Sunday liturgies. Additionally, each weekend devotional is based on the life of a particular woman of the Bible, helping you see the relevance of her story today. Each book of the Bible is preceded by a brief introduction highlighting its historical context and its most important themes. Additional articles focus on topics like the sacraments, holy days, the liturgy, and spiritual direction, explaining the link between tradition and Scripture to help you gain a greater understanding of your faith.
Meditations are drawn from a rich variety of authors, including:
Joan Wester Anderson
Sister Wendy Beckett
Esther de Waal
Catherine of Siena
Julian of Norwich
Joyce of Rupp
Teresa of Lisieux
Scripture offers wisdom for important everyday issues like relationships, marriage, child-rearing, simplicity, prayer, and finding real peace. If you dip into it regularly, it will become a well of continual refreshment, nourishing your faith and strengthening your sense of God’s loving presence in your life.
