The CSB Worldview Study Bible features the highly readable, highly reliable text of the Christian Standard Bible (CSB). The CSB stays as literal as possible to the Bible’s original meaning without sacrificing clarity, making it easier to engage with Scripture’s life-transforming message and to share it with others.

 

My Rating: 5 stars
My Review:

This is a substantial bible.  It’s heavy, large and includes over 50 essays and articles to accompany the biblical text on topics like:

The Crisis of the Christian Mind

A Biblical View of History

A Biblical Basis for Science

Personal Finances

A Biblical View of Music

Grace Filled Leadership

and more from over 70 different contributors.  This thing is meaty!

I like the Christian Standard Bible (formerly HCSB) as a very readable but still quality translation and the layout with the essays interspersed between the bible text is nice.  The commentary along the bottom is not extensive but seems pretty solid from what I’ve read so far.

This is another one of those bibles that just feels good in your hand. The “Leathertouch” is nice in a deep navy color. This would make a great gift bible for Father’s day!

Overall it’s highly recommended.

 

I received this in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own and I was not compensated nor was I required to leave a positive review.
