Review – CSB Great and Small Bible

Bible description

All creatures great and small . . . the Lord God made them all!

This full-text Bible, complemented by delightful illustrations of great-and-small animal friends, makes the perfect gift to welcome babies. Two dozen full-color inserts offer plenty of space to record all of baby’s special moments—from first measurements to first steps—creating a keepsake to always cherish.

Features include:

  • Complete text of the CSB (Christian Standard Bible)
  • 24 pages of inserts with full-color illustrations
  • Easy-to-read type
  • Words of Christ in red
  • Presentation page
  • Gift box

Part of what makes the Great and Small Bible so special is the readable, faithful-to-the-original text of the Christian Standard Bible. The CSB’s optimal blend of accuracy and readability makes it a trustworthy, easy-to-understand resource for kids to study and memorize today—and to live and share for a lifetime.

First impressions

I’m not married and don’t have children yet, so if you’re looking for an unbiased review of a Bible for babies, you’re in the right place.

Review

The first thing that distinguishes this Bible from the rest is its size. But being a keepsake Bible for Babies makes it the perfect size and looks kinda cute.

 

This is a hardcover Bible with a matte finish that looks good because of the minimalist-almost-white design with simple illustrations in the cover and a tiny one on the back.

In the interior you’ll find the CBS version of the Bible, which is the one used by B&H in their latest Bibles. According to the notes, the font used is Bible Serif by the famous 2K/DENMARK studio in, you know… Denmark. Because of the size of the Bible is normal to find a small font size in the inside and while this is one of those cases it still has a decent size for reading.

As for the features, there are a couple of cute animal illustrations here and there (24 according to the description) that complement the feeling of the Bible with space for you to write about specific moments of your baby.

Conclusion

This is a great Bible for new parents to get and it’s also a great Bible to give. Do not think of this Bible as your regular Bible, because it won’t work, but think of it more as a Bible you can preserve as your baby grows so you can share it with him in the future.

I received this book from B&H Publishing Group in exchange for this review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
