Book Description: The CSB (in)courage Devotional Bible invites every woman to find her story within the greatest story ever told—God’s story of redemption.
As you study God’s Word, 122 women from the (in)courage community come alongside you with 312 devotions, sharing stories of how God’s story has changed their lives.
