Drawing on the truths of Scripture, the features in this Bible will strengthen you with insights and encouragement for the issues you face. Some of the features include: Myths: I'll never be free from my past. If I'm good, God will love me. My husband is the only one who needs to change. If I'm a good Christian, then nothing bad will happen to me. My company owes me. You've heard them before. How many do you believe? They're commonly accepted myths of our culture---myths about love, relationships, God, fulfillment, sex, faith, right and wrong, and a lot more. Don't believe the lies of this world! The 100 'Myths' articles in True Identity expose different myths that many women believe. Each article opens with the first-person story of a woman who believes a particular myth and how that affects her life. A statistic or quote shows how common the myth is in our society or what someone has said about it. Then, most importantly, principles from the Bible refute the myth and offer practical guidance and help. At Issue: The stakes are high when it comes to issues such as marriage, conflict, money, sex, or pride. You need wisdom from God's Word---and 'At Issue' provides it. These 300 succinct notes take you to the heart of important topics, equipping you with biblical insights that can help you face common concerns with uncommon wisdom. Ask Me Anything: If you could sit down with different women of the Bible and ask them about their lives, what would they tell you? In the form of personal interviews, 'Ask Me Anything' profiles introduce you to 30 women from the Bible. Offering frank insights drawn from the best and worst of their lives, they have much to say about life today. He Is: Who is God and what is he like? You'll find out as you read through the 'He Is' notes. Highlighting attributes of God, each note gives you a bigger picture of the God who loves you and longs to be in relationship with you.
