MoodyPublishers-Love Languages Devo BibleSince devotionals go hand-in-hand with Bibles, many publishers merge the two into one product. Some of the same publishing strategies that apply to devotional books also apply to devotional Bibles.

For example, author-driven titles are available, like the Oswald Chambers Devotional Bible (Crossway) and three Thomas Nelson products: the Charles Stanley Life Principles Daily Bible, Max Lucado’s Grace for the Moment Daily Bible and Sarah Young’s Jesus Calling Devotional Bible.

Following are some new titles, which take the form of updated classics and best-sellers:

Moody Publishers continues to publish Gary Chapman’s Love Languages titles with The Love Languages Devotional Bible, released in hardcover last month.

Our Daily Bread Devotional Bible by RBC Ministries (Tyndale House Publishers, October). For more than 50 years, RBC ministries has been publishing daily devotions read by millions. Now the widely used devotional Our Daily Bread is paired with Tyndale’s New Living Translation of the Bible, providing 365 readings.

The Women of Faith Devotional Bible (Thomas Nelson), using the New King James Version, has sold more than a quarter-million copies to date. This year a plum leather-look version is another option in the product line.
