When I was 13, my grandmother bought me this Bible. Although I had many Bibles, this was IT!
I began reading that evening, running to hide away in my room and soak up the Word of God. And that Bible became so well-loved that pages would just fall out. Many books were duct-taped together and the edges were rust colored and wrinkled like an old newspaper.
Eventually, at about age 22, I started to get a little self-conscious of my bright pink Bible (the version I linked to is different – they don’t make the version I have anymore!) with sharpie all over it. I knew I needed something to start my new season of life with.
So, off to Amazon, I went. I tried a few Bibles and just didn’t really find what I was looking for. Without a Bible that really spoke to me, was easy to read, or inspired me, my quiet times were really hard. (If you want to figure out why YOUR quiet times are failing – take our quiz here!)
Then I came across the CBS She Reads Truth Bible. I was so anxious for it to arrive, and when it did, I was so overjoyed! This Bible was absolutely everything I had been looking for.
It is beautiful!
This Bible has gorgeous lettering & floral designs throughout, but it isn’t on every page. I’ve seen Bible’s like that before and they aren’t what I prefer. This Bible has one passage for each book of the Bible that is drawn in a beautiful design. I love the color scheme chosen. It is truly gorgeous all over.
It comes in a variety of colors & styles.
I loved that I had the options of many different beautiful colors, as well as hardcover or leather. I really love the hardcover for writing and doodling in my Bible, but I am a little worried about whether or not it will hold up. I also love that this Bible has two markers – so you can have one in the Old Testament and one in the New!
It comes in a beautiful casing.
This makes it perfect for gift giving & storage.
There is room for doodling.
I absolutely love how much space there is in this Bible! You can leave it plain if you like that, or you can fill it up with drawings & notes.
It includes a Bible Reading plan.
Though I haven’t tried it yet (I was mid-plan when I bought the Bible), I am so excited to try it next year! At the beginning of each book of the Bible, there is a plan for reading through that book, along with other passages in scripture that help you to understand what is going on. Each book also has 1-3 pages explaining the context, historical and geographical information on the book.
The print is SO nice to read. Plus, I love the little devotionals scattered evenly throughout the scripture.
I love the version!
She Reads Truth Bible is in the CSB version (Christian Standard Bible). I did not have high expectations for this version. While I know that ESV is most accurate, I really dislike reading it. I am an NIV girl, and I was really hoping the CSB would read similarly. And it does! So far, I have noticed no accuracy problems (I have read many versions of the Bible and compare a lot) and it is so easy to read.
