God has Big Plans for You—Discover them One Day at a Time Zondervan's Once-a-Day products deliver a guilt-free plan to read the Bible
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., November 1, 2011 - The thought of reading the Bible in its entirety in 365 days can be daunting and even leave some feeling guilty if they miss a few days. Zondervan has made things easier with the new NIV Once-a-Day Bible and devotionals (December, 2011)
"The NIV Once-a-Day Bible helps people encounter the Bible every day in a new and fresh way," says Sara Cribbs, marketing director for Zondervan Bibles. "It's flexible and instills a sense of accomplishment rather than a feeling of guilt."
By providing contextual overviews and questions for reflection, the NIV Once-a-Day Bible is unique and stands apart from all other "one year Bibles."
Aside from the Bible, which releases in a full Bible edition and also a chronological edition, there are two devotionals releasing—Once-a-Day Walk with Jesus Devotional: 365 Days in the New Testament and Once-a-Day Devotional for Women. The Walk with Jesus Devotional offers unique ways to center on God and strengthen faith: by reading a Scripture portion, followed by an insight from a remarkable Christian writer of the past, and ending with a timely, personal application and worship portion to help focus prayer and reflection – concentrated on that day’s particular focus. The quotes from past Christian writers include insights from such well-known authors as John Calvin, Dwight L. Moody, Hannah Whitall Smith, Martin Luther, Charles Spurgeon, and many others.
The Once-a-Day Devotional for Women written by Livingstone, the trusted team that created the popular Life Application Study Bible, combines helpful summary information before each reading, along with application questions after each reading, to deliver the most satisfying daily reading plan ever. It is a must-have for any woman committed to growing in her relationship with God through the spiritual discipline of daily Bible reading, reflection and application.
By early January 2012, readers of the NIV Once-A-Day Bible will be able to enhance their experience through a dedicated Facebook page where they will find encouragement, inspiration,
"Reading through the Bible is an experience begging to be shared," says Cribbs. "It's daunting, exciting, transformative, and every other emotion imaginable. Having a platform to receive encouragement during the tough times, a venue to shout out the inspirational times, and a method to wear accomplishments like a badge on your personal profile are all ways our Facebook page for the Once-A-Day collection will take your journey through the Bible to a new level.
Additional products in the Once-a-Day collection, including Devotional for Men, Bible for Women, Men and Women of the Bible Devotional, and Worship and Praise Devotional will release throughout 2012.
