The best Bibles for women? Aren’t all Bibles the same? The Word of God doesn’t change, so why should the choice of Bible matter?
Well, of course, there are different translations to consider (NIV, NKJV, NSB, etc.) but the version of the Bible can matter greatly. Bibles aimed at women offer commentary that is specific to women. They also tend to be prettier than a standard version or a men’s version.
In today’s post, I’m going to share the top selling women’s Bibles and what makes them special. The list was compiled from the best selling Bibles for women on Amazon, Christianbook and other retailers as well as input from other Christian women.
In this curated list, you’ll find something for everyone: from artisan Bibles to Bibles with prompts for journaling and Bibles with devotions and commentaries. Each would be a great addition to your Bible collection (mine is always growing!) or as a gift for someone special.
Life is busy. We have so many priorities as wives and mothers. We have errands and ministries. We have appointments and work. Finding time to fit in Bible study can be a challenge. With our busy schedules, it is particularly important that we set aside time to read and reflect on God’s Word.
The life of a women in our day and age (really at any time in history) is not easy. When we face life’s difficulties, we need to reach for His Word. When life is humming along beautifully, we need to read and rejoice in His truths.
No matter your season in life or what you may be facing, good or bad, you’ll find the perfect Bible for women in this list.

NIV, Real-Life Devotional Bible for Women, Compact, Leathersoft, Teal: Insights for Everyday Life - You spilled coffee on your shirt before walking out the door. Ran late to your appointment. Snapped at your children, then regretted it all day. And spent an hour at the grocery store with no dinner on the table to show for your efforts. A typical day has come and gone. Life is full of obligations, emotions, and relationships. Some are life-giving, yet sometimes the weight and responsibility of everyday life is heavy to bear. As wives, mothers, friends, and daughters, we need to know we’re not alone. We long for someone who understands―someone to help us find perspective. When our days are long, and our nights are restless, it’s easy to think we should be able to handle things on our own. Or that no one struggles like we do. And that’s when we need a friend … to encourage us, to understand us, and help us become the woman God wants us to be. You’ll find that friend on the pages of the NIV Real-Life Devotional Bible for Women.
