I have been in ministry for a very long time. I have been in both the capacity as a member not actively working in ministry (which never last for long) as well as a leader working basically full-time in ministry aiding the pastors in the furthering of the gospel. I can’t say that I AM a bible scholar like some of my friends because they literally know the book from beginning to end and that’s not where my level of bible study stands but I do know enough to sustain me as I’m on my journey to learn as much as I possibly can. With that being said I have definitely had my fair share of Bibles in every version under the sun and the moment that I had the opportunity to review the (in) courage bible I must say that I was indeed intrigued.
Honestly I can’t recall ever reading a Christian Standard Bible and if I did perhaps during that time in my life I was still stuck on the King James Version (KJV) that my parents always read. It’s funny how even as an adult we still carry the learned behaviors of our parents. The moment that I opened the (in) courage Devotional Bible I was immediately in love.
The CSB (in)courage Devotional Bible invites every woman to find her story within the greatest story ever told—God’s story of redemption. As I begin to study God’s Word, 122 women from the (in)courage community have come alongside me with 312 devotions, sharing their stories of how God has changed their lives.
The (in) Courage Devotional Bible Features include:
- 312 Devotions by 122 (in)courage community writers
- 10 distinct thematic Reading Plans
- 66 Book Introductions connecting each book of the Bible to the whole biblical narrative
- Stories of courage from 50 women of the Bible
- Journaling space
- Topical index
- Two-column text
- Theme verses
- Specialized presentation page
The (in)courage Devotional Bible traces ten themes throughout the Bible. A specific color and pattern helps you find each theme’s reading plan, devotions, and “Women of Courage” profiles, as well as two beautifully designed Scripture verses (one from the Old Testament and one from the New).
WOMEN OF COURAGE
These profiles highlight fifty women in the Bible, explaining how God showed his love in each women’s life.
Through the (in)courage Devotional Bible, you’ll find 52 reflective devotions. Designed to help you begin each week in God’s Word, these devotions anchor the themed reading plans and include reflection questions and journaling space. Every devotion has been written by someone who has walked through the topic she addresses—from adoption to cancer to missions work—and met God’s love in the midst of it.
Introductions to each book of the Bible help us see what context this book comes from, how it fits into the story of the Bible, and how it connects to our daily lives.
Throughout the Bible, twenty verses have been highlighted with beautiful designs to help you meditate on and memorize the truth of God’s Word.
Engage with each page of Scripture in lined journaling spaces provided for personal notes and reflection.
