Review: Mom's Bible, God's Wisdom for Mothers (NCV) with notes by Bobby Wolgemuth

 Mom’s Bible: God’s Wisdom for Mothers gives women an awareness of just how precious and vital they are in God’s plan for the family.

Available in the New Century Version and drawing on solid Bible teaching, it encourages women at every stage of life to strengthen their relationship with God.

  • Book Introductions
  • Special sections on: Walking In ways that are pleasing to God; Our God Is...; Godly Character; Passing It On; Moms in the Bible; Questions Kids Ask; and Wonderful Counselor, covering issues moms face from the perspective of a Christian therapist 
  • Highlighted First Touch verses: verses to mull over throughout the day
  • Topical Index

I loved reading this Mom's Bible! The New Century Version is an easy to read translation that everyone will understand. The layout of the entire Bible is pleasing to the eye, and it is interspersed with tons of valuable commentaries and day to day applications. This Bible is a treasure and a valuable reference book for any Mom, young and old alike.

I really enjoyed reading the section at the back of the Bible titled "Answers to Questions Kids Ask". Just a few of the questions are: "Why is the Dead Sea dead?; Why do good people suffer?; Do I have a guardian angel?; Does God sleep?; Can a man really live inside a fish for three days?; and Did Jesus ever want to do bad things?"

The answers to each question begins with a relevant scripture reference, followed by a simple commentary that a child could easily understand. Kids ask some pretty tough questions, and I wish that I had this Bible when my own children were small. It is an incredible reference for so many of the important things that we struggle with as parents.

If you are a Mom of small children, or if you are looking for a gift for a busy Mom, this Bible is a real treasure!

My rating - 5 out of 5 stars!!

Thank you to Thomas Nelson (Book Sneeze) for providing a complimentary copy of this wonderful Bible for the purpose of review.
