What if you could own a Bible that combined the reliable and readable CSB text, relatable devotions written by 122 women, and resources to help you dive deeper into the Word? The CSB (in)courage Devotional Bible does just that. This new release is an invitation for all women to find their stories within the tapestry of the greatest Story ever told—God’s Story of Redemption.
As someone who works with Bibles everyday, I was especially excited about this new release because it’s different than any other Bible I have seen. It’s visually stunning, and it has anything you could ever want in your go-to Bible! The (in)courage Bible has journaling space, reading plans, book introductions, theme verses, and more. (in)courage is a vibrant online community, reaching thousands of women every day, welcoming them just the way they are, offering a space to breathe, loving support, and resources for meaningful connection. The (in)courage community combines their already existing community with the CSB text for a truly life-changing Bible reading experience.
I also had the privilege of meeting some of the contributors to this Bible in April, and they were some of the most passionate, Jesus-loving, and honest women I have ever met. (Not to mention they are super fun. We laughed a lot!) Their fire for community for women and their “go first” attitude in sharing their stories lit an excitement in me for this amazing resource. I think readers will especially enjoy how personal the devotionals are, providing a wealth of knowledge and encouragement to share our stories with our communities of women. To see more of what I’m talking about, check out this video below:
Michelle’s story was especially inspirational to me. Don’t we all need a reminder that God has never called us to go it alone? See her story in the video below, also featured in her devotion “Mission Possible” as part of the “Better Together” reading plan.

Denise Hughes, General Editor of the (in)courage Bible, states, “We believe Scripture is complete. Nothing needs to be added to it or taken from it, and we can find ourselves within it. God’s Word is truth. Our circumstances may be different and our culture might not look the same, but God ‘is the same yesterday, today, and forever’ (Heb 13:8). We can look to Him as our unchanging source of hope.”
The CSB (in)courage Devotional 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.
