My Rating: 3 stars

My Review: I received a copy of this Bible in exchange for an honest review.
This Bible is written in the NKJV translation, making this a much easier to comprehend version of the Bible than the KJV. It contains stories of American's Women's history that are both inspiring and amazing in their courage and grace. These stories are chosen to complement the books of the Bible they immediately precede.
Other than the stories and quotes from each of these famous, and not so famous (at least to me) American women, the NKJV bible hasn't changed, and it offers nothing more to the reader. In fact, I'm not quite sure why I would buy this bible, or who I would buy it for. Perhaps it is a way to show how the Bible is not quite as old and crusty as some can believe it to be, how relatable it is to "modern" history (some may think that the 1960s is ancient history!). Other than being able to say, yes there is a Bible that also handles inspiring American women, it really does nothing for me.
