We here at Lifeway Women often open these posts with, “We’re so excited to tell you about …” and then announce an upcoming project. It’s true. We’re excited about everything we get to tell you about. We love our events, our Bible studies, and our books because we know they’ll impact the lives of the women who encounter them! We can’t wait to see how God uses the work we get to be a part of for His glory and our good.
But today I’m taking a page from my editor’s handbook and I’m going to show you, not tell you, how excited we are about this new product.
We don’t always know very far in advance what we’ll be publishing, but we’ve known about the She Reads Truth Bible for quite some time. We would hear bits and pieces of information in meetings and in the hallways of our offices. Each time, someone would say, “I can’t wait!” or “It’s going to be so good!” The release date seemed so far away.
Then, as the Christian Standard Bible released, excitement for the She Reads Truth version built. One day, the elevator opened to Amy exclaiming, “Look! Look what I’m holding! I have to put it back, but here it is!” She literally squealed and set the mock-up copy of the Bible back in the hands of the B&H representative. Now our hallways are buzzing with, “Have you seen one yet in real life?,” “They’re soooo pretty!,” and “I can’t wait to get a copy!”
I guess you could say we’re so excited to tell you about the She Reads Truth Bible!

The She Reads Truth Bible features the Christian Standard Bible (CSB) text. Translated by more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations, the Christian Standard Bible features an optimal blend of accuracy and readability that’s faithful for serious study, and written with heart-stirring clarity that inspires readers to live and share it. Raechel Myers says about the Christian Standard Bible, “At She Reads Truth, our mission is women in the Word of God every day. This means that the translation we use must be faithful to the original text, but also reflect it in a way that any person can understand. The Christian Standard Bible’s balanced approach helps us accomplish our mission.”
The She Reads Truth Bible is available with several different covers—all pretty. You can purchase it online or in a Lifeway Christian Store near you on April 15, but you can preorder one now! Here’s the poppy:

We can hardly contain our excitement about this Bible because we know God’s Word is living and active. As Amanda Bible Williams says, “God’s Word is beautiful, good, and true.” The She Reads Truth Bible points to the beauty of God’s Word while helping readers see its truth and goodness. We can’t wait for women to open this Bible and read the Truth.
