This Bible is really pretty, first off. I took off the dust jacket and it revealed a beautiful hardcover with a blue and white marbled design. I really love the way it looks. 🙂

My thoughts:

I really like this Bible. It is a nice sturdy, beautiful hardcover. It also has a section in the front of the Bible of ways that you can use the Bible, and explanation of features in this edition, and in the back it has full color maps and articles and resources, along with a daily Bible reading plan. I find it pretty neat that it also includes a page of "Biblical weights and measures" used.

I am pretty excited about this Bible and getting started using it. I have many Bibles that I use in various ways, whether it be for art journaling, regular Bible journaling, or some that I may use for study and I will just highlight and take short notes in. Though this is not a journaling Bible, I think that it is perfect for study and to take a few notes in. I love it!

You can find this Bible on Amazon right now for $20.

I received a copy of this Bible from Crossway Blog Review Program in exchange for my honest review.
