CSB Life Counsel Bible: A Review & Giveaway($10 Amazon gift card)

"Out of the depths I call to you, LORD!" ~ Psalm 130:1
Have you ever felt stressed, or been anxious, or experienced grief? Have you ever wanted to know how to help a loved one through addiction, marital conflict, or parenting challenges? 

I think maybe all of us have, at one time or another felt helpless in not knowing how to help others or even ourselves journey through the trials of this life. We know there are answers to life's questions in God's Word, but we don't always know how to navigate through the Bible to utilize the wisdom found within its pages.

I'm really excited to share with you an amazing new biblical counseling resource created in partnership with Holman Bibles and New Growth Press. The NEW CSB Life Counsel Bible provides practical wisdom for all of life, equipping readers with biblical truth and counsel on a wide range of topics and tough life issues. It contains articles from leading biblical counselors that will give YOU the tools you need to take action and find HOPE through all of life’s storms.

My Review

I'm really enjoying this Bible. I'm so thankful to be able to provide this introduction and review of this resource. This is definitely one that will remain in my library not only as a counseling resource but also as a personal resource when I am wrestling with yet another issue that life throws into my path. 

I especially love the introductions that are provided at the beginning of each book of the Bible. It's different than many study Bibles in that puts all the usual intro material into nutshell form without sacrificing important elements that are needed in understanding the book you are about to read. I love how it clearly states the intent of the writer and always points out how each book points to Christ...in both the Old and New Testaments. Also, the Truth For Healing sections with the overview of key themes and truths related to healing from each book of the Bible is just the icing on the cake for me! 

The articles are a goldmine. Seriously every parent needs this Bible. I am amazed at the breadth, depth, and wisdom that are available at your fingertips.  If you are struggling with how to talk to your child about the issues they face in this world and how to keep the lines of communication open, then you will want to access these articles.  

Grace-filled counsel giving practical wisdom in how to apply God's Word to a wide range of topics and tough life issues is provided through these full-length articles written by respected Christian counselors and scholars. 
The topics covered are too numerous to list here. Just suffice it to say that whether you are single, married, divorced, young, old, parent, child...or dealing with disability, special needs, psychiatric disorder, eating disorder, drug addiction, sex addiction, surviving trauma of all kinds, struggling with forgiveness, and more (in other words...you are a human being), there is an article that can lead you to the wisdom in God's Word in how to navigate your issue from a Biblical worldview with mercy and grace.  

I highly recommend this Bible as a great resource. Whatever you are facing, the Bible has something to say!

The he said to me, "These words are faithful and true."       ~Revelation22:6
