He Reads Truth Bible :: A Review & Father's Day Giveaway!

Okay...so I was sure I was going to get another post written before I did another giveaway, but the opportunity came up to run a giveaway for Father's Day and I couldn't resist. With Father's Day coming up so quickly make sure you enter right away for a chance to win this great Bible for your favorite guy. 

Which could be you if you're a guy...so...

Speaking of being a guy. Why call it He Reads Truth Bible?  

There is this worldwide community of men on a mission to read God's Word together every day. They don't just read the Bible but engage with Scripture through daily reading plans, devotions, and study tools. 

And YES, there's an App for that. 

This community was founded in 2015 and called, He Reads Truth. (See what they did there?) So the He Reads Truth Bible was developed to offer the community's favorite Bible engagement and study tools all in one place. This Bible invites every man to count himself as part of the He Reads Truth community of "Men in the Word of God every day." 

You can read more about this community and check out the He Reads Truth App here: About He Reads Truth

Review

The He Reads Truth Bible uses the Christian Standard Bible(CSB). If you are not familiar with this version, it is a highly reliable and easily readable text(much like the ESV). It stays as literal as possible to the Bible's original meaning without sacrificing clarity. So it is very readable to today's reader. 


I love doing Bible giveaways because I believe God's Word is THE most important book you will ever read, should you read it. And one of the many things I do love about this particular Bible is that it begins with a section called, How to Read the Bible

If picking up a Bible and just reading it seems a bit intimidating to you, don't skip the How to Read the Bible section. It will help ease you into the reading by giving you tips on how to approach God's Word, how to understand God's Word, and how to prayerfully read it and to apply it. So helpful!

You are invited into this story...HIS story.  So don't skip the first pages...they are priceless. 



Features


  • 66 hand-lettered key verses
  • 126 infographics (including charts, lists, and illustrations)
  • 17 full-color timelines
  • 21 full-color maps
  • Reading plans for every book of the Bible
  • One-year Bible reading plan
  • Detailed book introductions and outlines
  • Key verse list
  • 2 colored ribbon markers
  • Smyth-sewn binding
  • Wide margins for journaling and note-taking
  • Color-coded by genre
  • Bible Serif typeface designed for optimal Bible reading

I love that these are not all features stuck at the back of the Bible as some do, making you flip back and forth as you are reading. No. These features are placed throughout the text, where they are relevant to what you are reading. Which really brings the scripture to life as you begin to make connections that might be missed otherwise.  




But I think the feature I love most is that it gives a reading plan mapped out at the beginning of each book of the Bible which includes relevant supplemental passages from other parts of God's Word. 

Scripture itself is the best interpreter of Scripture with the help and leading of the Holy Spirit. This reading plan will help you apply this method of interpretation. I love this so much! 



There are so many great features in this Bible it makes me want to get one for myself, but I'm a girl so...
 I think I'll look into the She Reads Truth Bible to see how that one compares.
