Becoming Bible for Babes
OK, OK, believe it or not, I'm still around. We dudes have not abandoned Suzanne for the summer, nor have we asked her to make and bring us our coffee (groan!). Although I have a few more blogging ideas, I have had blogging fatigue recently, due to several factors, not the least of which is a worsening of my wife's long battle against Lyme Disease. Dan Sindlinger's wife is also in a difficult fight against Lyme Disease.
As for the conversation on this blog about Better Bibles for Babes, I thought of the Thomas Nelson Biblezines targeted to women or men (and other demographic groups, as well). Believe it or not, but the magazine cover posted to the left is for a complete New Testament. It is the New Century Version formatted as a magazine for today's readers. Here's what the publisher says about it:
For the fast-paced, busy lifestyle of women, the Becoming BibleZine is the perfect gift to help her on her spiritual journey. This second edition of Becoming offers practical insight on the Christian life through features such as: "Women & Men of the Bible", "Be still & Know", "Modern Worship", "Balancing Act", "Love", "Life Issues", "Health", "Relationships" and many more. Becoming is a wonderful gift for women between the ages of 22-35.And, for the sake of equality, you can also read about Thomas Nelson's Biblezine for men--some of whom are also called babes, by some women, at least.
