I wanted to share with you all a new book I was able to review. It is called the The NIV Military Wives’ New Testament with Psalms & Proverbs by Zondervan.
Grand Rapids, Mich., March 25, 2013—When a woman’s husband serves in the military, she is required to sacrifice as well, adding a level of strain to everyday life that most people can’t understand. Frequent moves, unpredictable schedules, extended deployments, reintegration—and, in some cases, caregiving—all make a military spouse hungry for the stability and peace found in God’s Word.
This month, Zondervan releases the special NIV Military Wives’ New Testament with Psalms & Proverbs, designed to address the unique needs, hopes, fears, struggles, and insecurities of military wives.
With 90 devotionals written by military wives and edited by Jocelyn Green, a former military wife who actively ministers to wives whose husbands are serving, this New Testament with Psalms and Proverbs is designed so that women in this unique situation feel as if they have a companion on their journey.
The NIV Military Wives’ New Testament with Psalms & Proverbs includes:
- Devotions that provide hope, encouragement, and spiritual growth
- Preface written by Jocelyn Greene
- Scripture from the New International Version
- Topical Index and other study helps
“The military wife fights battles of their own with unseen enemies: loneliness, weariness, fear, discouragement,” said Green. “The truth of God’s Word is both her weapon and her shield. With special devotions written by and for fellow military wives, this New Testament with Psalms & Proverbs serves as soul armor for the heroes at home.”
As military wives serve their country in their own way, the words of Green and other seasoned military wives bring help and hope, alongside God’s Word, to encourage and embolden them.
Jocelyn Green is an award-winning author of multiple books, including Faith Deployed: Daily Encouragement for Military Wives, and Stories of Faith and Courage from the Home Front, which inspired her historical fiction series, Heroines Behind the Lines. Her passion for the military family was fueled by her own experience as a military wife, and by the dozens of interviews she has conducted with members of the military for her articles and books. Jocelyn lives in Cedar Falls, IA, with her incredibly supportive husband and two adorable children.

My Thoughts: This book is perfect for any Military wife. There are devotions that have to do with what we as Military spouses have to go through. It is a great way to read some of the Bible and learn from what others have learned. If I were putting together a deployment kit of some kind, this book would be in it.
