It’s been just a little busy at the beginning of the year, but a good kind of busy! If you haven’t heard, I’m getting married!! He’s not only my best friend, but he is one Godly man. I remember being single and praying that my future husband would be able to answer two questions:
- What are you reading in God’s Word right now?
- What’s God teaching you right now?
And boy does my future husband answer both of these! He’s currently reading Hebrews and he uses what he’s learning in Scripture to encourage me in my walk with Christ. This week alone he reminded me multiple times faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things unseen! I love how he is able to use what God teaches him to encourage me!
But the key is he stays connected to Christ by reading the Word of God!
I recently got the opportunity to review the He Reads Truth Bible to review for B&H Publishing by FrontGate Media. I am so excited to share this awesome resource with you! Don’t worry! They aren’t telling me what to say; this is all me! I hope you love it just as much as we do! The He Reads Truth Bible has so many different features and I can’t wait to share them with you!
Why I love He Reads Truth:
One of the main reasons why I love He Reads Truth so much is because everything they do is done with intentions to pull you back into God’s Word so you can fall more in love with Him. If you’re unsure about where to start, the He Reads Truth Bible, literally starts you off with “How to Read the Bible” and it’s broken down to where you can really understand how to get the most out of your reading. We have to start somewhere right?
The He Reads Truth Bible is specifically designed to help the reader with the use of it’s Key Features.
The Bible is not all the same genre. There are different varieties of books of the Bible like history, letters, or even wisdom. Going into a book of the Bible knowing its genre will help you get the most out of each book. He Reads Truth starts each book with a color-coded tab to help you easily identify the genre of the book.
If you’ve ever wondered how all of Scripture fits together, He Reads Truth has put a collection of one verse from every book so you can see the complete arc of Scripture in 66 verses. They have taken these verses and created beautiful verse art. Each verse illustration has been hand crafted to help you easily memorize scripture and really see God’s word in its purest form–beautiful.
Each chart gives the reader more insight to that particular book and how it fits into the Bible as a whole. For example, for the book of Psalms, He Reads Truth provides a chart for you to see Christ all throughout the Psalms. But then it even gives you the fulfillment of those Psalms in New Testament passages. The charts throughout the He Reads Truth Bible are extremely helpful simply because it really does give the reader a bigger picture of how God’s Word really all goes together. The charts are in color–this is something you’re definitely not going to find in most Bibles. I love the color that’s all throughout this Bible; it really feels like you’re looking at a piece of art that draws you into God’s Word time and time again.
Most study Bibles will offer some sort of reading plan, but from what I have seen it’s nothing more than a Bible in a Year plan. To me, these kind of plans have always been super intimidating. I know people do them all the time, and I commend all of you who have done this, but I could never make this work. I would get really discouraged if I missed a day, and then I would be trying to play catch up. But He Reads Truth provides you with not only a Bible in a Year plan, but also it gives separate reading plans for each book, which is divided into five day weeks (again, for someone like me this would have been less intimidating to start with). For me now, I love the feature of “Digging Deeper” with texts to connect passages to the whole Bible. Are you noticing a trend? He Reads Truth has done a fabulous job connecting each passage of Scripture to the whole story of the Bible!
He Reads Truth provides a detailed book introduction for each book of the Bible, a topical index, smyth-sewn binding, two colored ribbon markers, and wide margins for journaling and note-taking. I love the idea of wide margins because I’m one that marks all over my Bible. I love writing notes from different sermons or making my own references to other Scriptures throughout the book.
The only thing I’m not a huge fan of is the thinness of the paper. My go to pen for my Bible and my journal is the Sharpie Fine Point Pen and using that pen doesn’t bleed through onto the other pages, but the pen is definitely visible on the opposite side that you write on. Even with the thinness of the paper, the He Reads Truth Bible is one worth getting!
The only other thing you aren’t going to find in this Bible is Red Letters. I know many of us are familiar with red letters (in the past, red letters were used to set apart the words Jesus spoke in the New Testament), but we need to keep in mind the whole Bible IS God’s Word.
Keep in mind this is not a typical Study Bible that gives some sort of commentary, but rather a resource to provide you with comprehensive tools to help you grasp a deeper love for the Gospel! This is unique to the She Reads Truth Bible–and totally worth it!
