CSB Study Bible for Women

CSB Study Bible for Women

My Review:

You can never have too many Bibles, Right? That is what I believe. When I seen that B&H/Lifeway was releasing a CSB Study Bible for Women, I knew I needed it. I love my study Bibles, I love the Christian Standard Translation!! Where do I begin about this Bible. The one I have is the hardcover that is covered in a beautiful light turquoise/sand cloth. The features are everything you could want in a study Bible. Study notes, 500 word studies, 25 full-color maps and reconstructions, introductions to each book of the Bible, a comprehensive concordance that includes every woman and reference to women in the Bible (my favorite), and threads of specialized study woven throughout, pointing to God’s larger story such as: Biblical Womanhood articles, Answers to “hard questions,” character profiles, doctrinal notes, and “written on my heart” applications.

This is one of the best study Bible’s for women that I own. The time spent putting this Bible together has paid off! Edited by two women who have been in ministry for a long time, Dorothy Patterson and Rhonda Kelley, this Bible will equip any woman who is ready to dive deeper into God’s word and mentor other women.

I highly recommend this Bible to all women, young and old. Perfect gift for that special woman in your life.

The Apologetics Study Bible CSB

The Apologetics Study Bible (CSB)

My Review:

I love Bibles! Whenever a new one comes out that I want, I am told I have too many. To me, a girl can never have too many Bibles!! Of course, I had to have The Apologetics Study Bible when I seen it. This Bible is a Christians must have Bible. This is in the Christian Standard Bible version (which used to HCSB). The features are endless: commentaries from 90+ apologists, presentation page, book introductions, study notes, profiles of Christian Apologists are just a few of the many features.

The CSB is a very highly readable text which means it is very easy to understand. For me, I sometimes have trouble understanding the KJV and the CSB really helps me to understand what I am reading. Honestly if you are looking for a Bible that will help you understand the Bible, get a deeper understanding and learn about some of the leading apologists then look no further, this is the Bible for you.
