A Woman's Guide to Reading the Bible in a Year
Full Product Description
When Diane Stortz was invited to join a study to read the whole Bible in a year, she went for it. It changed her life, even though she'd been a Christian a long time. Now, more than ten years later, she still reads through the Bible every year with a group of friends.
"I didn't start to really know God until I made knowing him my goal as I read the Bible. Getting to know God changed me. It changed how I think and what I do. It changes me still."
God put the Bible together for you. Reading it through in a year helps create a rich experience and a focused understanding of what God wants to reveal about himself. And with week-by-week reading plans, easy-to-use reference material, and stories of encouragement from women like you, A Woman's Guide to Reading the Bible in a Year is the perfect companion for this life-changing practice.
Gather your Bible and some good friends to join you in your journey, or go for it on your own. Either way, God will change you.

A Woman's Guide to Reading the Bible in a YearAlan Hill, via The Good Book Stall
The heart of the book is 52 sections giving you Bible readings for a week. There is a brief one page summary outlining the contents of what you are reading and then a largely blank page for you to record something you learned, a verse to remember and questions.
Although this reading programme could be done alone, the book's aim is for a small group of women to follow the book's programme and then meet once a week to discuss what they have read.
The outline notes are factual and helpful, although give little help on the more difficult parts of the scriptures like the end of Ezekiel and Revelation. The order of reading through the Bible is unusual in that it finishes with Malachi and not Revelation. It would have been good if the book had included a chapter on interpreting the Bible.
Overall this is a useful resource but my main bugbear is why it is only for women? Why not make the book a guide that men and women can use? Surely we all need help in reading the Scriptures!

Diane Stortz has taken the concept of reading the Bible in a year to a whole new level. She's created a wonderful companion to help women explore the Bible in a small-group setting that inspires and delights. I love how she's organized the reading assignments, the weekly sections, and "checkpoints" that make the journey through God's Word rich and alive! I'm looking forward to using this wonderful guide to enrich my daily time seeking God's heart.
Dineen Miller, author of Winning Him Without Words and The Soul Saver
A Woman's Guide to Reading the Bible in a Year is a wonderful tool for women wanting to read and understand the Bible. The personal testimony is so relevant for today's busy women. An excellent small-group study guide with biblical history and factual information to enhance the reading plan.

As a Bible study teacher and lecturer for over thirty years, I can attest to the fact that reading the Word of God with a systematic plan helps you to know not only your Bible and God's plan for his creation, but also to know your God in a personal way. Diane Stortz has presented a plan that is easy to follow and yields great rewards as you are guided to think about and meditate on what you read each week.
