What I Love About This Bible

  • I love the immersive visual experience that draws you in. I could easily spend hours reading, studying, and enjoying all that this Bible has to offer. You will, too, especially if you are a fan of Drive Thru History.
  • I love the in-depth articles that focus on a diversity of interesting topics relevant to the Bible such as the oils, perfumes, and cosmetics of ancient times.
  • I love the “Digging Deeper” call-outs that explain a variety of artifacts and why they are important. A great way to further explore the Bible, especially if you’re into biblical archeology.
  • I love how the CSB translation stays as literal as possible to the Bible’s original meaning without sacrificing clarity, making it highly readable and easier to engage with its life-transforming message.

  1. What most excites me about this bible is seeing the locations of bible stories. Thank you so much for the chance to win this one I would so love it.

  2. This Bible looks good for visual learners. We are fans of Drive-Thru History and I think it will reinforce what we learn in that show.
