I was so very pleased to be able to review the brand new “She Reads Truth” CSB (Christian Standard Bible) from B&H Publishing. “She Reads Truth”, founded in 2012, is a worldwide community of women that are reading the bible together daily. I love that “She Reads Truth” is committed to equipping women to become students of God’s Word.
First, I like the translation of this bible. It is the CSB text that is a blend of scriptural accuracy and readability. I also think the Bible itself is pretty (such a girly thing to say 🙂 I absolutely love that it comes with wide margins for note-taking or journaling. I think more people today actually write in their bibles, and many people love to create “art” in their bibles too. This bible will be perfect for both of those activities.
As far as aesthetics, my favorite feature is the beautiful artwork with scripture that accompanies each book of the Bible. I like when you turn the pages of the Bible you get random pops of color. Included in this bible also are full color maps, timelines, and charts. The “She Reads Truth’ bible also includes a one year bible reading plan. This is perfect for the person that wants to read through the Bible in a year because they do not have to buy a special bible or download a reading plan from a website. A special feature to this bible is the 189 devotionals that are included as well. This bible is a one stop shop, a blessing indeed. A few other features of this bible are the reading plans for each book of the bible, key verse lists, and detailed book introductions.
This Bible is perfect for those wanting to go deeper into God’s Word. I would definitely buy this Bible as a gift. The “She Reads Truth” bible is a resource that any women would love to receive. I received mine complimentary from B&H Publishing, and agreed to write this non-biased review.
