The CSB Study Bible for Women

One thing I love is a good bible. Especially a good study bible, with great features and great study notes.

The CSB Study Bible for Women actually falls in line with the other two Woman's Study Bibles that I've reviewed You can find them here. While yes, they are published by different publishing houses and are different translations, what they do have in common is the editing team is the same. So you will notice A LOT of similar features. The blue floral design is similarly found in the CSB and the NIV versions. The opening pages are similar. They both feature a Ketubah breakdown and family lineage pages.

Now, this study bible has word studies, which feature a frequently used word on a certain page then that word is broken down to its root word.

This is the edition I was given to review. I quite like it. It's simple yet beautiful. There are also TWO ribbon markers which is awesome!! Especially since I am known to be reading in more than one place at a time.





So this is what a book introduction look likes it includes an outline of the book as well. For those of us who tend to study more deeply and want to know the specifics of when a book was written, the timeline at the bottom of the page is quite helpful. It offers biblical events and world events of that time period.

This is where we can see a word study in action. Some word study sections feature more than one word as seen in the previous set of pictures. Also featured is "hard question" where certain questions are answered (each hard question section relates to the passage it is found near).

The "doctrine" sections, break down certain doctrine's within the Christian faith. Each doctrine section is found where the foundation of that doctrine is found in Scripture. 


I personally like the CSB Study Bible for Women better than the other versions I've come across that was edited by Dorothy Kelley Patterson and Rhonda Harrington Kelley. This one has more useful information embedded. The concordance is larger in the CSB as well. I also like that this bible does not feel as heavy as other full-size study bibles. 

It is also quite beautiful and as I've noticed quite popular among women (I'm in a facebook war binder group with hundreds of women). I've seen it recommended MANY times. I would definitely recommend it. The only thing I would add is in-text cross references. However, I'm sure it would make the bible much bulkier.



{FYI: I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my HONEST opinion.}
