I have always loved to read and I was able to share that love through my work as a public librarian for 22 1/2 years. I now promote literacy by reading, and then writing reviews. I love to support authors by sharing my reviews with others!

The CSB Lifeway Women’s Bible features the highly readable, highly reliable text of the Christian Standard Bible® (CSB). The CSB captures 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.
There are so many positive things about this new Bible for women. It is overflowing with amazing features, but I especially like that the binding allows me to lay it flat, the text is easy to read, and there is even space for journaling. There are charts galore and full-colored maps to increase my knowledge, a Table of Contents and Concordance to help me navigate, and three different reading plans to guide me in reading God's Word. These plans include a 90-day plan, a one-year plan, and a three-year plan. I also appreciate that there are numerous devotions and articles that supplement the Bible scripture and they're written by people like me---women who love God and long to grow in their faith! My only reservation is that the words of Jesus aren't in red text.
This CSB Lifeway Women's Bible is a wonderful addition to your personal library, but it would also be a lovely gift for birthdays, Mother's Day, Christmas, and even Graduation! It's rich in beauty and content, and there's a special presentation page for gifting it to those special women in your life. This Bible is truly a gem!
