I was given this Bible by Lifeway/B&H Publishing in exchange for my honest review. I had asked Lifeway/B&H Publishing for a journaling Bible that I could review because I am an avid Bible journaler. I wanted to be able to show you a great Bible that would give you a lot of options to dig into the Word of God.
First off, I am a New King James Version kind of gal. However, when I read a few verses of this Bible, I felt that it is easy to understand and it flows well. CSB stands for Christian Standard Bible. This Bible comes in 8-point type font, 1.75 inch margins for notetaking, and single-column text. I feel that the cream pages are crisp and great for taking notes. The margins are lined for easy journaling, but if you would rather have no lines, you will have to paint over them.
You don’t see a concordance in most journaling Bibles and I am shocked to see this particular Bible has one in the back of it. It is something that I am going to put into good use in my Bible studies. You will also notice there are full-color maps in the back as well that will help facilitate where cities were located in that time. It also has a Bible reading plan that is weekly. With closer observation, the reading is designed to help you read the Bible in a year. Since it is divided weekly, you can choose which days you would like to read. It also states that when using the reading plan, you can also read just the New Testament or just the Old Testament in one year. That is, if reading the entire Bible in one year is a little overwhelming.
I highly recommend this Bible for anyone who is interested in reading the Bible as well as doing some journaling.
