A few years ago, when I was looking for resources that would help me stay connected to God and His Word no matter where I was at, I discovered She Reads Truth – a popular ministry that provides women with online and printed Bible Studies that are steeped in God’s Word. I’ve been an avid reader of their daily studies ever since, so I was thrilled to learn that they had created the Christian Standard Bible (CSB) She Reads Truth Bible – a Bible that’s designed to invite women to spend time in the Word of God each and every day!
One of the goals of the She Reads Truth Bible design team was to thoughtfully and artfully highlight the beauty, goodness, and truth of Scripture, and they succeeded in doing just that! The overall design of this Bible is understated elegance: the beautiful Grey Linen Hardcover Edition is packaged in a sturdy, protective presentation box that is suitable for gift-giving! Inside, the classic black print on white paper is surrounded by plenty of margin space for Bible journaling and note-taking – but you’ll also find color infused where new books begin, in maps, charts, timelines, and devotionals, and in the 66 artist-rendered verses that were chosen to reflect key themes from each book of the Bible!
What I like about the She Reads Truth Bible is that it’s inviting – it’s inspirational – it beautiful – and it invites readers to spend devotional time with God on the pages of His Word in the margins. I also appreciate the many features this Bible offers:
Almost 200 devotionals
66 artist-designed key verses
35 full-color timelines
20 full-color maps
11 full-color charts
Reading plans for every book of the Bible
One-year Bible reading plan
Detailed book introductions
Key verse list
Carefully curated topical index
Sewn binding—lays flat when open
Wide margins for journaling and note-taking
8.50 x 6.50 x 1.25
The one thing that I’d like to see in future editions is larger print. I found the tiny font difficult to read, particularly in places where the black font went to grey! (This issue was significant enough for me that I deducted a star from the Bible’s overall rating).
She Reads Truth is a refreshing Bible that that offers you a little of everything: room to journal, devotionals to read, and a little study material to help you grow! It will particularly make a great gift for the young women in your life!
I rate this Bible 4 out of 5 stars.
