Earlier in the year I had the opportunity to review the new Christian Standard Bible when it was first released. For those that don’t know, the CSB is an updated translation of the Holman Christian Standard Bible, or HCSB. Though it isn’t my preferred translation, it is a good formal equivalent of the Hebrew and Greek manuscripts.
For this review Lifeway sent me the Sage design of the Notetaking Bible. It has a floral theme, and the pages the words are printed on have a light green/cream tone to them. Though I prefer regular old white paper, the these pages are easy on the eyes as light does not reflect off of them as easily.
The print is easy to read and is not to small. Since it is a Notetaking bible there is plenty of room to make your own notes. This is not a study bible so there is no commentary at the bottom. There is also an absence of footnotes. As previously stated, there is plenty of room to write one’s own notes. If you like to take notes during sermons and Bible studies then this is a good Bible for you.
