New View


CSB – Christian Standard Bible

According to the preface, “This study Bible is intended to help Christians make progress in developing a Christian worldview that will help them learn to think in a Christian manner and to live out the truth of the Christian faith.” The references and helps offered by this Bible will do that. You get a large collection of essays, written by more than 120 notable Christian scholars, placed throughout the Bible that covers over a hundred topics. Some of the topics are; birth control, is gender a choice, elderly care, religions and many more informative essays that will help you understand the Christian view of the topics.

Some of the features are;

An index of the essays.
Center-columns references.
An introduction to the CSB stating the goal and background of the translation.
An introduction to the Christian worldview explaining Christianity in a world of –isms, reasons a Christian worldview matters.
Full color maps.
Study notes at the bottom of the page.

An intro to each book of the Bible that covers the background of the book, why is was written, and what it contributes. There is a section called Christian Worldview Elements which teach about God, humanity and salvation and a Bible timeline at the beginning of each book.

Articles on Biblical interpretation, the Crisis of the Christian mind, what is a Christian worldview and why does it matter, Biblical inspiration and inerrancy, what is a human, and speaking to a non-Christian about Jesus. The one thing missing, that some people like, was Christ’s words in red ink.

I received this book free from B&H/LifeWay Bloggers Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255
