I remember thinking years ago that it was a near sin to love beautiful things. Maybe loving beauty just made me vain? That was until God brought to my mind the master crafters He had working for His glory in Exodus and how magnificently He Himself designed this beautiful universe we inhabit. I say all of this because the She Reads Truth Bible is all about beauty.

 

You remember those master crafters I talked about in Exodus? The She Reads Truth Team certainly had their own set of master crafters creating their own unique fonts (yup, I just said they created their own fonts!), illustrating memorable verses, carefully selecting the right colors to combine, and providing beautifully bound Bible covers with an array of options.

 

The different cover choices include: Poppy Linen, Poppy Linen Indexed, Gray Linen (the one I have!), Gray Linen Indexed (the one I would pick now if I had a do-over), Navy LeatherTouch, Navy LeatherTouch Indexed, Brown Genuine Leather, Brown Genuine Leather Indexed, and Hardcover.  That all sounds like a whole lot of lovely, right?

 

The Features I Really Enjoy About the She Reads Truth Bible

I’ve provided some pictures here of key points of the She Reads Truth Bible I really enjoy. The one thing I left out is that the team created the She Reads Truth Bible with Bible reading plans that are introduced at the beginning of each book of the Bible.

 

So at the beginning of the book of 1 Peter, for example, there are corresponding verses listed from throughout the Bible that are meant to complement the text your reading. I’ve used this feature a couple of times so far with the She Reads Truth Bible and found that it did enrich the text I was reading.

A Note About the CSB Translation

  The CSB translation is pretty much the newly revised version of the Holman. So if you’ve heard of the Holman (HCSB), the CSB is just an update. And I will say, the CSB/Holman has been one of my favorite translations for many years now because it’s a balance between the word for word (think NASB or ESV) and the thought for thought (think of NLT or the NIV). Meaning, you get the big picture snapshot from the thought for thought, with the detailed accuracy of the word for word. 

 

Who’s The She Reads Truth Bible for and Not For?

I wanted to mention that the She Reads Truth Bible has a very specific aim: to get women into the Word daily. The aim of the She Reads Truth Team is not in creating a deep study Bible. Meaning, if you’re in the market for a Bible filled with margins of helpful commentary, the She Reads Truth Bible is not the right pick for you. The CSB Study Bible would be a better choice and one of my all-time favorite Bibles for its helpful in-depth studies, diving into the Greek, Hebrew, and providing clarity for difficult-to-read passages. (Our review for the CSB Study Bible is over here.)

 

But I will tell you, even though I love an in-depth study of the Bible, sometimes, I just want to pick up the Bible just to read the inspired words. The She Reads Truth Bible is my new favorite Bible to do just that- to pick up the Word and pour over the 66 books of the Bible on their own. 

 

Also, it probably goes without saying, but if you just want a Bible that doesn’t have any frills or you’re wanting a Bible that you can be careless and haul with you to a wilderness retreat, then the She Reads Truth Bible isn’t for you.

 

And on the note of careful, I will mention that I do wish I had selected the option to get the She Reads Truth Bible indexed. I say that because when I thumb through the pages to get to the desired section I’m wanting to read, the natural moistness of my hands seems to mess with the fragile pages. So if you can spend roughly five to six bucks extra, do yourself a favor and get the indexed version, especially if you’re looking for this Bible to last you for years to come.
