I had heard of the She Reads Truth Bible from many Christian friends, but never the He Reads Truth Bible until I was offered the opportunity to review it by the publisher, Lifeway Christian Resources. Since the Bible is geared toward men, I asked my husband if he would be interested in it. Of course, he was excited to receive a copy. This review is based on my husband’s opinion of the He Reads Truth Bible. I have added some additional insight from the publisher and my own observations.
The He Reads Truth Bible that we received is the evergreen cloth over board. The Bible also comes in brown genuine leather, black LeatherTouch or charcoal cloth over board. All styles include smyth-sewn binding and two colored ribbon markers to mark your reading spot.
It is presented in the Christian Standard Bible (CSB). This is a great version for all believers, but it is particularly readable in modern English, yet translated, by over 100 scholars from ancient Scripture texts.
My husband, for one, is not much of a reader. He finds many translations of the Bible to be a bit difficult to read. The He Reads Truth Bible, CSB version, he found not only easier to read, but enjoyable, as well.
In many Bibles, the commentary or explanations seem to be written in “flowery” language. The He Reads truth, Bible, however, make it apparent that it was written for reading by men.
Recently, my husband shared that he is seeking to deepen his walk with Our Father. This Bible has given him the opportunity to spend daily time in the Word and truly grow in his knowledge of God’s book.
He has already mentioned several men who he feels would enjoy the He Reads Truth Bible and has discussed purchasing several as gifts.
I think it would make a terrific graduation gift for a young man entering the “real world”. What a better map than the instructions God has given us for life!
The Bible includes a number of features to aid the reader in their study of God’s Word, including:
- color coding by genre
- detailed introductions for each book
- suggested reading plans with supplemental scripture for deeper understanding
- full-color maps
- key verse list
- full page featured verses, artistically presented, to help with verse memorization
- wide margins for note taking
