CSB Study Bible for Women & Giveaway {Review}

The CSB Study Bible for Women is one of the most comprehensive study Bible ever prepared for women by women.  The women who edited and wrote the studies are all academically trained in the original languages of the Bible and zealous about God’s Word.

As I have said before, I own a lot of Bibles, including the She Reads Truth Bible, and the CSB Study Bible for Women is just as beautiful!  Published by the same company as the SRT Bible, it is a simpler version than the SRT Bible, but it is just as lovely.  In fact, as someone who likes things simple, this Bible is more of what I like.  I know that God’s Word doesn’t have to be pretty, but why not?  God made flowers, oceans, and mountain scenery for us to enjoy, so why not His word?  I love the color of the cover! (Blues are my jam.)  The hardback cover is covered in a light turquoise and sand linen.  Having the Bible in a hardcover is quite nice, as I have had many soft-cover leather Bibles fall apart quickly.  The binding is smyth-sewn.  On the page that starts each book, there is a beautiful flower illustration.

CSB Study Bible for women is in the Christian Standard Bible translation.  The CSB stays as literal as possible to the Bible’s original meaning without sacrificing clarity.  This makes it easier to engage with Scripture’s life-transforming message and to share it with others.  To learn more about the Bible translation, watch the video below!

 

There are extensive commentary notes on just about each page to help you to learn more about what you are studying, along with word studies.  This Bible also has studies throughout it that point you to God’s larger story. These studies will help you go deep into the Scripture and will help you unlock truths and riches of His Word, and ignite a passion to study and encourage others in your life to do the same.

The pages are thin like just about every Bible out there, but this Bible doesn’t have huge illustrations in dark ink to make it hard to read on the back pages.  There are full color maps and illustrations scattered throughout (including at the start of each book), but they still make it very easy to read each page.  This was nice as I don’t want to have to contend with trying to read what is on the following page of a heavy and dark illustration.

Near Proverbs and Psalms, there is a section where you can follow the schedule to read through Proverbs and Psalms through a year.  This is a great way to really study and dive deep into Proverbs and Psalms.  Hide God’s Word in your heart!

The most distinctive feature of this Bible?  There is Biblical womanhood articles to help inspire you to be the woman God wants you to be, and Character Profiles to help you get to know the women of the Bibles better.  I enjoyed these inserts as I find it a bit difficult to really know who the women of the Bible are.
