Fantastic! Oh how I love reading the Bible!
I received a review copy of this Bible from the publisher. The Beautiful Word Bible has margins for notetaking and/or journaling. It has 500 colorful journaling images already in the Bible. The only thing that my daughter didn’t like about the Bible is the size of the font as it’s on the smaller size. She prefers something that is a little larger for easier reading. The font itself is clear, so it’s really just a size issue. The Beautiful Word Bible is lovely, hardcover journaling Bible. It’s not a study Bible with tons of additional notes or extras. It does have pretty journaling images and words already in the Bible. The pages are a good weight. If the font was larger, it would be a great journaling Bible for my daughter. As it is, it’s a nice Bible that she’s using until she can find one that has a larger font.
NIV Beautiful Word Bible by Zondervan is a beautiful new bible that is made to not only accommodate personal journaling, but it also features 500 full color verses. The special featured verses are scattered throughout this bible. Some of the featured verses cover a full two page spread while others are placed witin the margins. With the popularity of the new genre of jounaling bibles and adult coloring books- this bible combines the best of two world. Creativity is a new way to express faith while also building one's knowledge of the word of God. This bible can easily become a treasured keepsake, passed down generation to generation, once it is personalized. Generous sized margins feature ample space for writing notes, or even for creating your own doodles. There is no limitation to this bible as it allows flexibility for anything. To get some ideas of how to decorate or personalize a journaling bible there are many videos on the internet. This bible will appeal to a wide audience including scrap bookers, artists, journalists and writers. One unexpected feature is its smaller size. Depending on who you are, this may or may not be a positive feature. This bible is portable and light- and easy to read while holding in one hand. Unlike heavier, bulky bibles, this bible is easy to read sitting up in a chair, or with one hand right before bed. With its portable size, comes a smaller font. The text size is slightly smaller than the standard font size of Zondervan bibles. The font is still readable, just not as much as the standard font. Once again this is to allow extra wide lined margins on just about each page to allow for personal journal entries and notes. This is not a devotional or study bible. There are no extra articles or devotions which is a good thing as nothing stands between the reader and God's word. I also found many of my favorite passages had been featured in illustrated full color verses! Now that I have this bible, the hardest thing is to figure out what to do with it since there are so many possibilities. I can not decide if I should take notes, draw doodles, highlight passages or add stickers- or maybe all these things. As beautiful as this bible is, I may just want to leave it as it is and not add anything. So, I'm probably going to take a few days reading this bible until I decide if or how to personalize it. Maybe I will watch a few more videos for inspiration. As a blogger I received a copy of this bible published by Zondervan.
