The CSB stays as literal as possible to the Bible’s original meaning without sacrificing clarity, making it easier to engage with Scripture’s life-transforming message and to share it with others.

This optimal blend of fidelity and clarity means the CSB is reliable for serious study, but is also rendered in engaging, sharable language that stirs hearts, drives understanding, and changes lives. The CSB is where original meaning is discovered, heart connection is made, and lifelong inspiration begins.
"The old adage about a photograph being worth a thousand words speaks of the explanatory power of pictures. While our imaginations may mislead us, photographs take us to the real places and show us the real artifacts from the past. With more than 1,000 carefully selected photos, the Holy Land Illustrated Bible is more than a feast for the eyes—it opens up the biblical world so that our minds can understand, treasure, and apply all of God's Word. What a delight to read a Bible bursting with beautiful images!"

"The Holy Land Illustrated Bible is an excellent resource for helping Christians shift from being reading saints to beholding saints. The Bible is the best and truest Story ever told. It enhances our understanding, strengthens our faith and equips us to be disciples who better know the Story of the Bible as we seek to share it with others. This Bible will help you "see" the Story and live forward with refreshed and energized faith, understanding the Living God who sits at the center of every single story within the overall Story of Scriptures."
