She Reads Truth Bible Review and Giveaway

Picture


The She Reads Truth Bible aims to live at the intersection of beauty, goodness, and Truth. Featuring devotionals by the She Reads Truth team, and Scripture reading plans that include supplemental passages for deeper understanding, this Bible invites every woman to count themselves among the She Reads Truth community of "Women in the Word of God every day." The She Reads Truth Bible also features 66 key verses, artfully lettered to aid in Scripture memorization.

Features include: almost 200 devotionals, 66 artist-designed key verses, 35 full-color timelines, 20 full-color maps, 11 full-color charts, reading plans for every book of the Bible, one-year Bible reading plan, detailed book introductions, key verse list, carefully curated topical index, smyth-sewn binding, two colored ribbon markers, and wide margins for journaling and note-taking.

The She Reads Truth Bible features the Christian Standard Bible (CSB) text. Translated by more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations, the Christian Standard Bible features an optimal blend of accuracy and readability that’s faithful for serious study, and written with heart-stirring clarity that inspires readers to live and share it.

My Thoughts:

I’m not one to get too excited over themed Bibles. I’m okay with a simple Study Bible. The She Reads Truth Bible has some amazing features that I really enjoy.

The She Reads Truth Bible comes in many colors and is available in Brown Leather, Navy Leathertouch, Poppy Linen Hardcover, Gray Linen Hardcover, and a Gray Hardcover. I received the Poppy Linen Hardcover.

The Hardcover Bible comes in a holder or sleeve that you can store your Bible in when you aren't using it. It slides in the case and is easy to remove it. The poppy color is very pretty.  

The She Reads Truth Bible contains the CSB (Christian Standard Bible) version of the Biblical text.

This is a hefty Bible that is slightly over 3 ½ pounds. There are 2 ribbon books markers in the Bible. One ribbon is white and the other is an ivory color. The ribbons are situated with one in front and the other one in the back of the Bible. Nice feature to mark off your reading in the Old and New Testament.

The pages are laid out in a single column format. You have a larger than average margin for notes, journaling, or to create your own art. This isn’t a journaling Bible but, with the large margin you could easily incorporate it into one. I don’t do journaling myself. It’s just my own personal preference. The pages are thicker than your average paper in Bibles. Depending on your medium you may have some bleeding. If you use a highlighter or pen you may have a slight shadow on the next page.

The text is an 8 point and the font is easy to read. The Bible has a very minimalist look as it isn’t busy or distracting even with the beautiful touches throughout. It’s very classy looking.



Each book in the Bible begins with a beautiful illustration based off a scripture theme that they focus on throughout the book. Some are very simple and others are more elaborate with the details.  The books have an introduction of each book. The introduction pages cover a timeline, background, and a message & purpose. A unique feature is that each book has a Give Thanks for that book section. The Bible has a yearly reading plan in the back of the Bible. What I really like is that it has a reading plan laid out in weeks at the beginning of each book. Some of the books have a map, chart, or a timeline chart at the beginning of each book.


I don’t know if I consider this a full study Bible as the study notes are not many.

It does have 189 devotions throughout which I thought were interesting and placed according to the context of the scripture.

At the back of the Bible you have a Key Verse Guide that has the scripture address along with the verse laid out in a chart. A Genre Guide, The Apostles’ Creed, A Yearly Reading Plan broken down my months, Topical Index, and Table of Weights and Measures.  



There are 20 full-colored maps throughout the Bible. The maps aren’t your typical maps that you see in Bibles. At first I wasn’t sure if I liked them. They are more artistic looking in a minimalist look. Some of them are your standard Bible maps while others are unique. You could easily mark places in the map yourself or highlight them.

My pet peeve with Bible is that they don’t have the words of Jesus in red. I have always liked this feature in a Bible. That is just a personal preference.

Overall, this is a really nice Bible that I would recommend.
