The CSB’s optimal blend of accuracy and readability makes Scripture more moving, more memorable, and more motivating to read and share with others.
I received the Sage Cloth over Board edition, which is a hard-cover Bible with some beautiful artwork on the cover. However, the hard-cover isn’t so stiff. It is a good size for carrying and for writing notes in. I liked the size of the margins.
With 1.75-inch margins for taking notes, the fact that this is a single-column Bible makes so much more sense than double-column notetaking Bibles where is just not really enough space for that to be practical. I love margins that are wide enough to take notes in at church or even for my own personal Bible study and devotional time. I also liked that there are no , is no footnotes and reference marks in this Bible.
I also liked the concordance, which, for a smaller Bible, is pretty big. It is very nice and user friendly.
The maps located in the back are also a very nice feature, and very colorful making them much easier to understand.
There is a year-long reading plan. A reading plan allows the reader to go through the Bible in one year. The reading plan is a seven-day per week plan with the first day being starting in Psalms. The rest of the week is two to four chapters from the Old Testament along with a smaller reading from the New Testament, taking you through both the Old and New Testaments once a year.
The CSB Notetaking Bible is an excellent Bible for both personal devotions and church use. This would be a great Bile to use for a Bible study where you can write your own study notes. I highly recommend the CSB Notetaking Bible to anyone from teens to adults.
