Book Description
Release Date: November 3, 2005
Best-selling author Kathy Bostrom offers this book of devotions to help women create calm in the chaos of their busy lives. The book comprises twenty-eight days of devotions for each month of the year, so that readers can begin using the book during any month. Each week’s devotions, prayers, quotations, and “Spirit Boosters” focus on one Bible passage, which is read each day of that week. Each week ends with a “Sabbath Celebration,” a time for quiet prayer, reflection, and renewal. The “Spirit Boosters” for each week are divided into “Reaching In” and “Reaching Out” sections. They offer suggestions for ways to be kind to yourself and to others while nurturing your own faith. This book is ideal for women’s prayer groups, to give as a gift, or to give to yourself.

Editorial Reviews
From Publishers Weekly
“This is the equation of my life,” writes Bostrom: “One husband plus two jobs plus three children plus half a dozen projects all going on at once.” It’s no wonder that she feels exhausted, and she is not alone in such fatigue. How can women find spiritual refreshment in the midst of laundry, bills, school conferences and work? The Bible, says Bostrom, offers wisdom for finding “calm in the chaos” as early as the opening verse of Genesis, when God creates the earth from a formless void. Bostrom doesn’t want this devotional to add to the stress that women already feel, or become just another item on their never-ending to-do lists. To this end, it has a slightly different sensibility than other Christian devotionals: rather than incorporating the obligatory scripture du jour, Bostrom uses a single scripture for an entire week. This way, she says, readers can really delve into the passage and let its meaning wash over them for a substantial period of time. Also, she wants readers to engage in a weekly “Sabbath celebration,” to set Sunday apart as a true respite from the clamor of the week. She speaks openly from her own experiences of being busy and tired, noting that she suffers from a chronic illness that forces her to choose only those activities that are most meaningful. Literary readers will enjoy the well-chosen quotations from the likes of William Sloane Coffin, Madeleine L’Engle, Thomas Aquinas, Wendell Berry, Thomas Merton and Frederick Buechner.

From the Back Cover
“In this inspiring book of devotions, Kathy Bostrom becomes our daily companion and guide. Her delightful reflections are grounded in her very real life as a woman, a mother, and a minister. This book is a gentle and stress-free way to take moments of quiet reflection, even in the busiest of lives.” –Denise Roy, author of My Monastery Is a Minivan
“The reader will want this book for the collection of quotations alone, but Kathy Bostrom has given us much, much more. She has lived the pushing pulling chaos of life, and yet she has emerged with a voice of calm faithfulness. Her warm personal stories relating carefully chosen weekly scripture, poetry, prayer, quotation and Sabbath Celebration to the unrelenting everydayness of women’s lives is a reminder of God’s gifts: the incredible availability of God and a peacefulness that is ours for the taking, an inner God-blessed peacefulness. –Ann Weems, author of Kneeling in Bethlehem, Searching for Shalom, and Psalms of Lament

“Kathy Bostrom’s new book is a superb addition to the spiritual treasury of the church. Within a practical daily prayer discipline she provides a rich resource of readings – prayers, poetry and prose – drawn from the saints both ancient and modern, and also a series of personal meditations, rooted in daily life, which reach deep into the soul and the life of faith. I was enchanted, and found it hard to resist the temptation to read ahead.” –J. Barrie Shepherd, author of Diary of Daily Prayer

“Kathleen Bostrom sets forth her intent early–to help us “create calm in the chaos, not add to it” by simply giving us one more thing to do. She succeeds. This is not one of those trite devotionals that wraps everything up nicely with a bow on top and leaves you longing for something deeper, more lasting. I found myself eagerly strategizing a way to carve out my next few moments (I have four kids and a neurotic dog!) to sit with that day’s devotion and let Kathleen’s words soak into my soul like rain into thirsty soil. Kathleen offers a grace-filled practical plan that guides us through each week, creating space for God to cultivate His peace, His calm in our lives.” –Lisa Espinoza Johnson, speaker, recording artist, and author of Days of Whine and Noses–Pep Talks for Tuckered Out Moms

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful devotional book for women — and men! February 3, 2006
By Leah B. Wyckoff
Format:PaperbackKathy Bostrom has written a wonderful devotional book that encourages readers to reflect on and engage with scripture and prayer in their daily lives. One of the book’s strengths is that Bostrom has the reader reflect on one scripture in a variety of ways over the course of a week. New understandings and ideas may be revealed with each day’s reading of the scripture. At the end of each week is a Sabbath Celebration, a time to incorporate light, prayer, scripture and silence into one’s personal worship. I appreciate Kathy Bostrom’s writing, which illuminates the sacred in daily living and encourages the reader to enjoy the gift of daily devotional time.

By M. N. Miller
Format:PaperbackThis devotional is truly exceptional. It is written using a weekly format that makes it easy to use, with some variety in the components of the weekly devotions. There are personal anecdotes that are full of warmth and wisdom, scripture lessons, and much wisdom. I have loved this book so much that I’ve started giving it to friends as gifts. I highly recommend it!!

By A.Trendl HungarianBookstore.com TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE™ VOICE
Subscription Term Name:1 yearFor a Saturday afternoon of light, but encouraging reading, buy a subscription to “Guideposts.” There are deeper magazines, bt don’t be fooled… every article here connects richly with the soul.

This is the kind of magazine both Catholics and Protestants can both love. It is great gift for your friend who attends the church across the street from yours.

Short vignettes and more involved profiles color this magazine in much the same way a Reader’s Digest might, except with a clear spiritual flavor.

It is ecumenical yet uncompromising: I fully recommend “Guideposts.” You won’t be disappointed.

You Save: $11.11 (41%)

Book Description
Publication Date: May 31, 2011
Over the course of the last five years, Tim Tebow established himself as one of the greatest quarterbacks in the history of college football and a top prospect in the NFL. During that time he amassed an unparalleled resume—winning two BCS national championships, becoming the first sophomore in NCAA history to win the Heisman trophy, and in the face of massive public scrutiny, being drafted in the first round of the NFL draft by the Denver Broncos.

Now, in Through My Eyes, Tebow brings readers everywhere an inspirational memoir about life as he chose to live it, revealing how his faith and family values, combined with his relentless will to succeed, have molded him into the person that he is today. As the son of Christian missionaries, Tebow has a unique story to tell—from the circumstances of his birth, to his home-schooled roots, to his record-setting collegiate football career with the Florida Gators and everything else that took place in between.

At every step, Tebow’s life has defied convention and expectation. While aspects of his life have been well-documented, the stories have always been filtered through the opinions and words of others. Through My Eyes is his passionate, firsthand, never-before-told account of how it all really happened.

Editorial Reviews
About the Author
Tim Tebow is one of the most accomplished players in college football history. A two-time winner of the NCAA National Football Championship with the University of Florida, Tim is also the first-ever sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy. He then went on to become a two-time winner of the Maxwell Award for the nation’s top football player, while also winning the Davey O’Brien Award for the nation’s best college quarterback and the James E. Sullivan Award for the most outstanding amateur athlete in any sport. He is the founder of the Tim Tebow Foundation which was started to bring faith, hope, and love to those needing a brighter day in the darkest hour of need, and in April 2010, Tim was selected in the first round of the NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos. He lives in Colorado.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great inspiration to read with my daughter!, June 1, 2011
By Mile High Mommy (Colorado) –

Reading this with my daughter has been a gift I’ll treasure forever. I hadn’t expected a young man to have much wisdom to share just being so young (and he addresses that nicely), but I have found more than just the story enjoyable – the book has been a great conversation piece for me with my 10 year old daughter. I am grateful Tebow created this story for family and friends to share together. What a gift!

Example – the chapter about Tim’s mom’s pregnancy impressed me with the delicacy and dignity he (with Nathan Whitaker) uses to offer the story. Here, I had expected a more evangelical Tebow (which I would have been fine with), but it never got “preachy” – just inspiring and touching the heart deeply.

Generally, to me, Tebow seems to present his faith as HIS and absolutely the only right answer FOR HIM. He doesn’t express his faith as the only truth for everyone, but rather uses his platform to explain how valuable it has been to him personally. I didn’t get the feeling that he was holding himself up as the gold standard whatsoever (again, I might have been just fine with that, because he does seem to be a fine modern example of a young man dealing with fame and faith beautifully, and, besides, I couldn’t be offended because I happen to agree with him in this respect).

I am thrilled his story has been genuine, heartfelt and inspiring. And he hasn’t really even lived but a small portion of his lifetime yet – so I can’t wait for the sequel! :)
I hope that one leads to the greatest heights of his hopefully legendary career. More importantly, a legendary LIFE :)

UPDATE: BOOK SIGNING, TATTERED COVER, DENVER 06-04-11 > What a class act this man is! Took my daughter and my neice to have their books signed. They both feel so blessed that they got to shake his hand as he looked sincerely into their eyes and told them it was HIS honor to meet THEM! OMG – to see a child’s heart touched (and eyes tear) from hearing such an inspiring remark from someone who is larger than life to them both. He treated them as if they were the only people there for that moment.

My neice leaves in 6 days to work at orphanages in Africa for 3 weeks and was overjoyed that I gave her Through My Eyes to read on her trip. She’s going to LOVE having this book with her – in her hands and in her heart as she works in Africa! GB2 to Mr. Tebow!

Book Description
Series: Bible Kjv | Publication Date: October 26, 2010
Oxford is proud to announce a limited edition of the 1611 text of the King James Bible, with real leather binding, gilt edging, ribbon marker, gift presentation plate, and protective cloth slipcase.

This is the most authoritative edition of the King James Bible available. The text of the 1611 edition differs from modern editions of the King James Version in thousands of details, and this edition is the most authentic version of the original text that has ever been published. It follows the 1611 text page-for-page and line-for-line, reproducing all misprints rather than correcting them. The volume also reprints the large body of preliminary matter, which includes genealogies, maps, and lists of readings, as well as the translator’s preface to the reader. The text features an easy-to-read modern font instead of the black-letter type of the original, with the exception of the original decorative letters and early page ornaments, which have been reproduced. The volume concludes with an essay by Renaissance Studies expert, Gordon Campbell, on the first edition of the King James Bible.

The four hundredth anniversary of the publication of the King James Bible will be a major event, with celebrations held all over the world. This beautiful Anniversary Edition will make an elegant keepsake with which to remember this event as well as a marvelous gift for anyone interested in the Bible. (christian friends, anyone interested in christianity)

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a wonderful Bible!, November 9, 2010
By D. J. OROURKE

This review is from: King James Bible: 400th Anniversary Edition (Bible Kjv) (Hardcover)
I’ve had mine for about three weeks now and I am very pleased with it. It is large, and as such it’s not a carry Bible and it’s not a read in bed Bible. It is, however, a really pleasant experience reading this Bible at a desk. I happen to do a lot of my reading at my desk anyhow, so it works out great.

The layout of the text is fantastic, with lots of white space in the text, which makes it very easy reading. The line spacing is very generous as well. The references are just great; not nearly as overwhelming as, say, a 1560 Geneva or any modern reference Bible. I like the sparse references. There are lots of alternate readings provided, which I actually prefer over the cross-references. They really make reading the KJV much easier by clarifying vague or confusing verses.

WIDE MARGINS! Nowhere in the product description does it mention that is a fantastically wide margined Bible. I’ve never even seen a genuine 1611 KJV, so this kind of came as a surprise to me. But, wow, if your a note taking kind of person there is lots of open space for you to use. Basically something around 1 3/8 on the sides and just under and inch on the top and bottom. Another really nice thing is that the inside margins are big too, which means that NO text gets even close to the gutter. All the text is within a box on a flat sheet of paper no matter where you are in the Bible. Just a great presentation.

The font is not overly large considering the size of the book, but it is plenty big. Probably 9’ish sized font. The overall quality is really nice. I’m not sure that it’s a “luxury” edition exactly, but for $50 it is a super fantastic buy. The leather cover, gilding, paper and binding all seem to be of a very high quality. I have zero issues with this Bible. For the purpose that it serves I can’t recommend it enough. If you want a classic looking KJB for desktop reading, with big margins and 1611 content, buy this one… you won’t regret it.

I get goosebumps when I read this by candlelight; simply amazing. God bless and peace to all my brothers and sisters in Christ! Help other customers find the most helpful reviews

5.0 out of 5 stars Physical Splendour at a bargain, February 23, 2011
By Dr. Chuang Wei Ping “Dr Chuang”

This review is from: King James Bible: 400th Anniversary Edition (Bible Kjv) (Hardcover)
The chap who said “Never judge a book by its cover” probably never ended up selling a single book. I could easily have walked by this Bible in a shop, which from the outside, looked unremarkable except for its size, and concealed in a dowdy maroon cloth covered slip-cover.

Yet the Anglican Journal uses superlatives like “Physical splendour” to describe this “Quartercentenary Edition, an exact reprint in Roman Type, page for page, line for line and letter for letter of the KJV otherwise known as the Authorized Version published in the year 1611 with an anniversary Essay by Gordon Campbell.” “Quartercentenary” triggers off a spell-check alert, and it is a good thing we all understand that this does not mean 25 years.

The real burgundy leather over hard board covers has simple but solid gold stamping. It does not grab appeal. It slowly grows on you, very slowly I must add. The burgundy colour is a refreshing departure from the regular black covers. It is not a hip bible and its majesty took me some time to appreciate.

This bible is huge. The statistics of 11.3 x 9.1 x 2.4 inches and 6.3 pounds does not strike you as large until you are actually holding it. Of course, it is small in comparison to the original KJV, which is 17 inches tall, 30 pounds in weight, which may actually require two people to lift into the pulpit.

In a world of vertically longish bibles, it is rare to find one so exquisitely proportioned. The width of the bible being slightly over 0.8 times the height is the ideal W:L ratio. It is the width, which gives this bible a distinct presence. When it is open, it is a magnificent sight as a book with such a wide “wing-span” is very rare. To read this bible, the support of a table or a bed is needed. I prefer the bed.

The bible opens up flat. The margins are really wide, which adds to the aesthetics, and a great help to post-it users like me. The uncluttered layout makes the “bland” parts of the Old Testament easy to read.

For this review, I have bent the bible backwards to examine the binding “crash”, “mull” or that thingy which supports the stitching. It looked even and nicely done when viewed with a fibre-optic light. The binding – the first book part to give way and also the least visible – looks strong and the hinges of the covers likewise. Some additional effort made to secure the hinges was visible. The binding will resist the shearing forces in the hands of those more accustomed to handling small “i”-phones than very big books. I think this bible was built to last. There is nothing which says that it is acid-free, although it looks like acid-free paper is used.

The pages are glare-free even under the strongest (halogen) or uneven lighting (like from a bedside lamp). The pages are thick matt-white, and do not stick together. Every leaf feels strong and does not crinkle easily. Not much of yellow highlighter ink seeps through to the reverse page of a leaf. The Apocrypha is between the New and Old Testaments so opening the bible in the centre does not find Psalms. Amazon describes one ribbon, but my copy has two claret red ribbons, one over Esther and another over Isaiah, so they are both symmetrical around the centre. The gold paint on the gilded edges do not appear to be thick enough as the fore-edges look whitish when the bible is open.

There is quite a bit of artwork in the earlier pages of this bible. The Title Page art is impressive.
The calendar retains some of the Gothic typeface of the original 1611 KJV. There are 33 pages of illustrated Genealogy in different artistic layouts. This 400th anniversary edition is large enough to have a Map of Canaan over two opposing pages, but the details are hard to make out, since this is not the original 30 pound KJV. The artwork in the Capital Letter block in the beginning of each chapter is really interesting. There are a lot of “A”s, as in “And it came to passe…”, but it is amazing how many artistic variations there are for the capital “A” alone. There can be three different types of artwork for three separate “A”s appearing on the same spread. I estimate that there must be at least 100 different basic block artwork for the letter “A” alone, and I think I see some tiny variations in similar blocks.

The 11 ½ page essay by Gordon Campbell at the end of the text block gives a summary of the history of the KJV including how the Apocrypha got excluded. Very intriguing is Gordon Campbell pointing out that there are thousands of differences between the 1611 KJV and the present day bookshelf KJV. 1611 KJV Matthew 16:16 “thou art Christ” changed to “thou art the Christ”, “the words of Jesus” Matthew 26:75 became “the word (singular) of Jesus”.

Even a comma changed 2 Corinthians 5:2 from “for in this we grone earnestly, desiring to be clothed” to “for in this we grone, earnestly desiring to be clothed”. There were 350 “typo”s, 250 in the text and 100 in the marginal notes. Mostly inconsequential, like Gel: for Gal:, or “plaine” in Leviticus 13:56 which should read “plague”. Gordon Campbell then appends a separate 2-page list of some typos, like “brothe” for “brother” in Matthew 12. He does not go into errors in translation, and wisely too.

I note some comments about this bible being printed in China. Most of the 400th Anniversary ones are printed in China, and they are well done. I see it as a step forward. PRC will never allow politically sensitive material to be printed in China, and I sense that China is realising that persecuting Christians today is becoming a lost communist cause. I once commented that the most attentive listeners of sermons in Church are the government agents. To which a friend retorted, “Hallelujah, at least some in the secret police may still be Saved.” Likewise, at least some in the bible making industry in China may still be Saved.

Book making has long been outsourced, and it is pretty tedious work with low profit margins. Unlike some branded goods, at least the savings on bibles have been passed on to consumers. The similar sized large print Dake KJV (also very large and heavy) is printed in Korea, while the compact Dake is printed in China. As China is getting less competitive, printing is moving to Vietnam and Indonesia. Gordon Campbell was very decent in claiming only a “moral right” to his essay, rather than a copyright.

A bible of “physical splendour” at a bargain price.

2011 Thanksgiving update: I notice that the cover has changed from the dowdy maroon to a more impressive black cover with more stamped embellishments. The old Amazon illustration was just a maroon rectangular blob. They said it was going to be a limited print edition. I suppose it is the classic maroon one is limited. I would never begrudge more of this bible being printed. Apparently the demand is high. For those in the USA entitled to Free Shipping from Amazon, this can be considered a further discount. It exceeds the standard weight and international buyers incur a weight surcharge on this heavy item.

4.0 out of 5 stars The mother of all bibles, October 24, 2010
By Wu Wei

This review is from: King James Bible: 400th Anniversary Edition (Bible Kjv) (Hardcover)
This is a large and HEAVY bible! Also, it is a 1611 KJV bible which means that it is VERY, VERY, VERY different from the ordinary King James bibles. For anyone who wants all of that, that is, anyone who wants a large, heavy 1611 King James bible will be happy with this edition.

Besides being 8.5 X 11 inches in size, this bible is over two inches thick. It has heavy, quality paper, along with a very sturdy and heavy cover, so it is HEAVY. It is uncomfortable to hold in the lap, and it cannot safely be read while opened with one hand. However, the font is large and clear enough that it can be read in bed with a tilting bed stand. Without such a stand, the only real option is to read the bible while it is laying flat on a table. If that is not acceptable, the buyer should consider smaller, lighter 1611 King James bibles instead of this one.

Like any 1611, this is very different from any KJV or modern bible. The spelling is phonetic, and very different from today’s spelling. For example, “been” is spelled “bene” and “do” is spelled as “doe”.

Also some letters are actually “switched” while printing. For example, modern “v” is often printed as “u” and modern “u” is often printed as “v”. So “unto” is spelled “vnto”, “up” as “vp”, “have” as “haue”, and “love” as “loue”. “joy” is spelled “ioy” and “Jesus” is spelled as “Iesus”.

Overall the print quality of this bible is excellent. However 3 of the last pages of the Revelation and one page of the appendix following that have a single dark bar across the bottom. This can make one line of the page harder to read. The paper quality is excellent and the print is consistent and easy to read. The edges of the pages are gilt all the way around
