I have a new favorite study Bible and this is it! The CSB Study Bible for Women is packed full of helpul commentary and information. I love the introductory page for each book of the Bible. It always contains a verse that is representative of that book and answers many questions including, but not limited to, who the author was, where the book took place, and the general details concerning what the book is about.
Two of my favorite items from the intoductory page are the outline and the timeline. I also really enjoy the way the books of the Bible have clearly marked sections that line up with the outline, providing an easy way for me to keep track of how everything fits together.
The pages of this Bible are just right. There is very light ghosting sometimes between pages, but it is not overwhelming. I am very sensitive to pages that are too thin and find it very hard to read with ghosting. This Bible does not bother my eyes at all. The font is also extremely easy to read and does not strain my eyes.
I am really learning a lot as I study with this Bible. I have so far studied Colossians and 1 and 2 Thessalonians. There were some “Hard Question” sections included in each book, as well as “Word Study” sections, and other breakout sections that provided additional information. I have found the regular footnotes that are at the bottom of each page very helpful, as well.
I really can’t say enough good things about this Bible. I received the cloth over board version for review and it seems very durable.
I received a complimentary copy of this Bible. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
