Bible Review: Crossway ESV Illuminated Bible- 4 Stars

The ESV Illuminated Bible is a beautiful art journaling bible. My copy is hardback and it is extremely sturdy and heavy!

The pages are cream colored, and while slightly thicker than a normal bible, you can still see the designs through the other pages. I feel like once you’ve added your own designs and writings ink could possibly bleed through the pages. I don’t like how you can see it through the other side but that is just my preference! My only other complaint is that the designs don’t have much space for you to say, color in, if you wanted. The only areas for adding your own journaling I feel like, is on the pages with blank margins. The scripture is single column with plenty of space on the margin for notes or drawings.

The designs are truly beautiful, so beautiful I don’t want to mess it up by drawing my own artwork in it! I especially like how the book title pages allude to that specific book, such as Daniel in the lion’s den and the whale in Jonah!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The gold writings and illustrations really bring the scripture to life and I think having space for your own personal notes or sketching is a great addition to this Bible!

Thank you to Crossway for sending me this Bible for review purposes.

Book (Bible) Review-NIV Journal the Word Bible-4 Stars

This Bible is covered in a beautiful floral cloth print over board.It is a single column bible with the typical wide margins that are lined for journaling. The NIV translation makes it easy to understand and follow. The words of Christ are not in red though, if that’s something you are particular about. I like this journaling bible, but would love to have one that has designs/words already traced out that I could color in. I received this Journal Bible through the Harper Collins BookLook Blogging program in exchange for my honest review.

Book (Bible) Review: NIV Holy Bible for Girls, Journal Edition-5 Stars

niv

I have the pink edition of this journaling bible. I’ve wanted to try a journaling bible for a really long time and this pink floral cover is adorable. I still need to practice my lettering skills but it has nice, wide, lined margins for doodling/journaling and notetaking. The NIV translation makes it easy to read for everyone and the fun, sturdy cover is great. The pages are thick enough that the ink will not bleed through nor can you see writing through the pages. This would make a great gift for yourself or anyone else that’s been interested in a journaling bible-the beautiful cover is a┬ábonus! It has an elastic band attached which will come in handy if you keep papers inside. I received this bible from Harper Collins BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest review!
