Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

No new Bible this year is likely to be more discussed than this "illuminated" version by Swedish designers, with the American Bible Society's Good News Translation. The producers say it has "no religious mission." It uses provocative and even assaultive color photos, e.g., a man in flames labeled "Revelation," reminiscent of glossy magazine photojournalism but aimed at the Facebook generation, complete with neon yellow highlighting of text. Whether the images illumine more than they provoke is a matter of taste.

    Illuminating

    I have been blessed in my life to be able to read the Bible several times over in several different translations and you know what? It's a great book. If you haven't read it you should give it a try! There is a reason it is the most popular book in the world you know :)<BR/><BR/>This month I was given the amazing opportunity to preview a new Bible version- Bible Illuminated. Honestly I think it is easily the most incredible version I have EVER seen. <BR/><BR/>The photos are incredible- just looking at them gave me VERY strong emotions and then to have them paired with the Word of God was just intense. It truly had me captivated.<BR/><BR/>The Bible Illuminated would make an excellent Christmas gift too.

    Be Alert!

    The Bible Illuminated is an attractively made book. I like the way certain verses are already highlighted or underlined. BE ALERT to the fact that photographs and pictures are used as art work and the subject matter of a few photos is not for young children. A few photos show violence. I wouldn't recommend this book for children under 14 or sensitive people. For example, there are photos of a man is shown on fire and a close up of a lady said to be dying while giving birth. The art work of this Bible wants to challenge believers, not comfort them.

    I Also Recommend:

    Is it just me or does this look like the cover for The Host?

    Maybe it's just me, but this is a weird cover for a Bible. I am increasingly wary of these postmodern Christian influences. Jesus was never PC, why should Christians? We're not supposed to be as worldly as a lot of Christians are now. I appreciate that this version is trying to be contemporary, but the wonderful thing about the Bible is that it hasn't changed.
