The Mom’s Bible Book Review


I received the Mom’s Bible God’s Wisdom for Mothers from Thomas Nelson to review. While This is a New Century Version, with notes by Bobbie Wolgemuth. I did not read the book from cover to cover, but did spend many hours going through all the different chapters, and reading all the notes written within. It has great introductions to each book of the bible, as well as very well written insights into what the Word is trying to tell the reader.

Being partial to the New King James Version, I did find the New Century Version an easier read, especially for a younger Christian. I really enjoyed how Bobbie Wolgemuth introduced and gave such wonderful insight into each book of the Bible. I also enjoyed the section in the back entitled Answers To Questions Kid’s Ask for the fact that it really gives a good biblical reference to answer many of those tough questions that children seem to ask. I also liked the Topical Index that is broke down by Topic. It isn’t tremendously long, which is nice and makes it easier to find just what one is looking for.

Her side notes, left the reader with a deeper understanding, as well as an opportunity to ponder numerous life questions. It was very inspirational. I would easily be able to buy this Mom’s Bible for any mom as a gift, something to give her encouragement. The fact that the book is hard bound in my opinion would make it a Bible that any mom would feel like keeping nearby throughout the day.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze.com <http://BookSneeze.com> book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

  1. Huh, you know the topics of hard answers for kids alone would be enough for me to buy it. We're having all sorts of fun questions right now as you can imagine. Today's was along the lines of "does everyone go to heaven...." oh boy, that's not really fun to answer.
