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 Thoughts:

The cover of this Bible is Navy Leathertouch and it feels amazing. It is beautiful, smooth, and very luxurious. The edges are silver and the Bible includes 2 ribbon bookmarks (blue and cream), which I love. There are many occasions where 2 bookmarks are extremely helpful. It also comes in a very nice, sturdy gift box with a lid that is very nice for storage.

This Bible focuses on the Christian worldview. A worldview is described as “a lens through which a person looks at the world”. This worldview affects how we think, act, and treat others so reading the Bible and having a Biblical and Christian worldview is extremely important.

There are over 130 articles throughout the Bible that focus on various topics that are relevant to our world today (Church and State, Animal Rights, The New Atheism). Included in the front of the Bible is a table of contents for where to find each of the articles. The articles are written by over 120 Christian scholars and are very interesting and thought provoking. One of my favorite articles is titled, “Speaking to a Non-Christian about Jesus”…it provides powerful examples from the Bible of how to witness to others and share about Jesus.

The Bible also includes footnotes that are helpful to understanding the verse better. In some cases, the footnotes are more limited than I prefer, but for the most part, I am pleased with them.

There are center column references throughout the Bible and many full-color maps in the back of the book. It also includes the CSB concordance.

The Christian Standard Bible translation is my favorite translation. It is very accessible and easy to read, while remaining true to the Bible’s original meaning.

Overall, this is an excellent Bible that is extremely relevant to the world today. I highly enjoyed reading the various articles and would definitely recommend this to other Christians.

My Rating: 5 stars

I received this Bible from the publisher to review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
