[Silver Spring, Maryland] General Conference Women’s Ministries (GCWM) launched the first Seventh-day Adventist Women’s Bible at Annual Council in October. Co-produced by Editorial Safeliz of Spain and GC Women’s Ministries, this NKJV Bible is available in English, French, and Spanish and four color choices.
The Women's Bible is designed to appeal to women with its varied covers, design and font type, and exceptional beauty of full color portraits of biblical women. The list of 28 Fundamental Beliefs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and colorful Adventist prophecy charts are also included.
Special study materials—introductions to the sections and books of the Bible, biographies of women in the Bible, a series of Bible studies, lists of interesting facts and weddings in the Bible—are written by women scholars Jo Ann Davidson, Ph.D., Carla Gober, Ph.D., Elizabeth Talbot, Ph.D., and Hyveth B. Williams, D. Min.
GC Women’s Ministries Director Heather-Dawn Small wrote “Being a Christian Mother in a Changing World,” and GCWM Associate Director Raquel Arrais discussed Proverbs 31 in “Making a Difference in Today’s Society.” Women’s Ministries Directors of the world divisions and other women contributed to more than 50 brief articles about virtues exhibited by women in the Bible.
Bibles may be purchased in the U.S.A. for $39.99 at local Adventist Book Centers or online www.adventistbookcenter.com.
