With the Spiritual Warfare Bible released last August, Charisma House is slated to release a black imitation leather edition of the best-seller on Aug. 6. Featuring the New King James Bible text, the Spiritual Warfare Bible aims to help believers understand the elements of spiritual warfare and be equipped to engage the

enemy of their souls. “Some of our customers acknowledged that there has been a void in the market for a Bible like this,” said Marcos Perez, Charisma House vice president of sales. “The charismatic market this Bible serves understands the need for this, has reacted favorably and is now being satisfied with the experience that this Bible delivers, according to our customer base.” In May, Holman will introduce the Biblia del Pescador (Fisher of Men Bible) RVR 1960, a Spanish Bible edited by evangelistic pastor and president of the Global Mission-

ary Society Diaz Pabon. This Bible contains an extensive index enabling the user to easily find verses applicable to many situations. The index guides the reader to the first verse in the chain on a particular topic, which includes a brief commentary and the reference for the second verse in the chain. Themes include evangelism, apologetics, Christian doctrine, church (cell groups) and devotion.

Zondervan’s NIV Leadership Bible offers 52 weeks of readings designed to help readers turn into leaders with specialized 15-minute daily offerings of scripture alongside practical studies on everyday leadership issues ($39.99 hardcover, $64.99 Italian DuoTone, June).

Young adults are the focus of two new titles with Zondervan’s NIV College Devotional Bible, featuring stories connecting Scripture to the struggles, questions and decisions college students face ($34.99 hardcover, $49.99 Italian DuoTone, February).
