[Brazil] One of the emphases of Women's Ministries (WM) department of the South American Division (SAD) is to help women study the Bible deeply. It is believed that all women can claim the promise of Jeremiah 29:13, "Ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart."
In partnership with Safeliz Publishing of Spain and South American Division Women's Ministries, the Brazilian Publishing House recently published the Adventist Women's Bible. Several distinctive features set this Bible apart from other women's Bibles:
- More than 100 pages of tools, resources, and Bible study aids.
- A complete set of Bible studies.
- Thirty beautifully illustrated pages featuring well-known women of the Bible such as Abigail, Bathsheba, Deborah, Hagar, Martha, Mary, and more.
- More than 100 commentaries written by recognized women authors, about issues related to women (weddings in the Bible; rape and violation; levirate marriages; women prophets), appearing alongside the Bible text.
- Articles on more than 60 virtues, and the women of the Bible who best represent them.
- General articles on well-known and lesser-known women of the Bible, and practical lessons we can learn from them.
- An outline of each book of the Bible.
- Words of Jesus printed in gold.
The promotion of the Women's Bible was held in the South American Division Plenary Committee in November for presidents of the unions and volunteer members who have been attending. "I believe that this Bible will be a blessing to all women," said Marli Peyerl, director of SAD WM.
The Adventist Women's Bible is co-produced by Safeliz Publishing and the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists Women's Ministries and was printed first in 2015 in English, Spanish, and French and comes with the choice of four covers in vibrant colors.
