CSB Worldview Study Bible

4 Stars for the CSB Bible, 3 for the Worldview Study Bible/Notes

While expensive, this module is worth it for the CSB Bible text, properly formatted with the official CSB footnotes and cross references. OT quotes (in the NT) are properly formatted, as are the words of Christ. For the price, though, Strong's numbers would be an expected addition. It's annoying to have to go to another version of the Bible to decide what Greek/Hebrew word was used to translate a word in the CSB. Strong's is in the public domain, so this would have only cost the makers additional time and effort. Aside from that, the CSB is a solid translation that brings out nuances of language one may not see in other versions. Think of it as somewhere between the NLT and ESV in translational style.

The CSB has a solid study bible (The CSB Study Bible), but that is not the study bible they chose to use for this module. The Worldview Study Bible is more of a mini-study Bible with separate articles on social issues. There are few notes compared to many study bibles out there. The book introductions and timelines are the same as those in the CSB Study Bible, except the introductions are truncated here, removing some text and artwork. The concordance does not give nearly all the instances of a word. For example, in the entry for "opportunity" (which I chose at random by looking at the passage I happened to have on screen), the concordance states the following:

looking for a good o to betray him. Mt 26:16
and don’t give the devil an o. Eph 4:27

However, the word "opportunity" is used 20 times in the CSB. For the nearby word "oppress" three verses are given, despite the word being used 153 times in the CSB. In this way, the concordance is severely lacking and not worth the inclusion.

There are 132 essays which speak mostly to social issues of our times. These are unique to the Worldview study bible (though conceptually they are not different from many commentators elsewhere), and may be a nice addition when researching social issues and what the Bible might say about those issues.

Overall, though, if you want the CSB Bible text, this is the only non-pirated module which has that, and in today's world, the CSB is a necessary modern translation to have when comparing translations.
