CSB Study Bible for Women Review
This is definitely the most in-depth study Bible I’ve used. Right away I liked the, “Written on My Heart,” sections that give you things to think about that relate to what you’re reading. I also appreciated the, “Hard question,” section which addresses things like, “Does God’s wrath contradict his love?” as well as, “How can I trust a God who has allowed such terrible things to happen to people?” as well as examples such as “Can I actually depend on God to bless my life, if I remain obedient to Him?” and other topics that many people wonder about. These are good to bring up in Bible study discussions.
Here are some of the features it’s listed as coming with:
Extensive study notes
Over 500 word studies
25 full-color maps and reconstructions and charts
Intros to each book of the Bible
Concordance including all the woman in the Bible
Biblical Womanhood articles like “A Woman who fears the Lord,” “Inner Beauty,” and “A Paradigm.”
Answers to “Hard Questions”
Character profiles of different women in the Bible along with a great in-depth chart of the Virtuous Woman of Proverbs 31.
Doctrine info: Ex. The trinity, Revelation, salvation, etc.
There are tons of charts with info throughout the books of the Bible like Women ministering to Jesus, different theological terms, types to psalms, etc. This helps put things into context as you read. The chart with the Bible’s books on the issues of life contains the questions of life along with the world’s perspective and then God’s perspective. This was one of the features I appreciated the most of all the charts. It would be good to focus on in a class or personal Bible study.
There is so much here to help you with studying and reading the Bible. It’s so thorough and with examples of scripture to back up everything listed. This would be a great edition to your home library.
