Unique men's Bible: The Christian Standard Bible® He Reads Truth Bible from Holman Bibles at Lifeway.com [Review & Giveaway]

As Valentine's Day approaches, you may be pondering an appropriate gift for the man in your life. A husband. A boyfriend. Father. Son. Son-in-law. What a grand opportunity to share God's Word with a Bible especially crafted to help men study God's Word!

💝 💝 💝 💝

About the CSB He Reads Truth Men's Bible: This is a unique men's Bible that includes robust, well-crafted theological extras to draw the reader back to Scripture, increase biblical literacy, and foster a growing affection for God and His Word. This Bible is color-coded by genre, and each book of the Bible features detailed book introductions, a reading plan with supplemental passages for deeper understanding, and full-color maps, charts, and timelines by the He Reads Truth team. In addition, the He Reads Truth Bible features 66 key verses, artfully lettered to aid in Scripture memorization. This Bible for men invites every man to count himself as part of the He Reads Truth community of “Men in the Word of God every day.”



The He Reads Truth Bible offers a rare combination of creativity and insight into Scripture for men to explore the beauty, goodness, and truth of God's Word. The result is that whether looking to pair this Bible for men with existing daily devotions or using it as an anchor resource to teach a class, the CSB He Reads Truth Bible could be the perfect option.

Features include 66 hand-lettered key verses, 17 full-color timelines, 21 maps, 122 charts (including infographics and lists), and 4 illustrations, reading plans for every book of the Bible, one-year Bible reading plan, detailed book introductions, key verse list, smyth-sewn binding, two-colored ribbon markers, and wide margins for journaling and note-taking.

The He Reads Truth 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 on this edition (click here to find it): I have a copy of the Evergreen Cloth Over Board edition, ISBN: 9781535935036, which has a strong binding that facilitates the flat layout of the book in one's hands or desktop. This is a hefty, quite heavy, Bible that makes it more effective to use at a desk than a "take to church" Bible. The pages have very wide margins that facilitate personal notations.

The paper is quite thin as is the case in many Bibles. This paper is such that the type or imagery on one side bleeds through to the other side. This is annoying and troublesome when reading. The type face is quite small, too, which for many would create difficulty in reading for any length of time.

As can be seen from the two images below, the study aids "The Book of Nehemiah and the Life of Jesus" and "Read and Study John" provide gems of information to aid in one's study of Scripture. This is typical of the types of aids one can find in the CSB He Reads Truth Men's Bible.


But then you can also see the extent of bleed through or shadowing from reverse pages and the difficulty they might pose.




As can be seen on the Lifeway.com page for the CSB (Christian Study Bible) He Reads Truth Men's Bible, there are a variety of bindings, colors, etc. that can be selected. God's Word is always a 5-Star product and even with some points not being to my personal liking this copy is His Word and will provide guidance, comfort, leading for a man who chooses to read truth as presented in God's Word.
