My new everyday Bible!
As a member of the Bible Gateway Blogger Grid (BG²), I received this Bible free in exchange for my honest review…and honestly, this is my new favorite Bible! I love everything about this Bible.
Physical characteristics:The size is perfect to carry and lays open flat on my lap. The pages are gold edged, with a slight thickness so they feel more “book-like”. The color of the paper is creamy, not stark white, making it easy to read and more comfortable on my eyes. The cover is beautifully designed with watercolor swashes and a soft leather-like feel. There are two attached ribbon bookmarks. I would prefer a slightly larger font size for the scripture, but it is certainly not a huge issue. The scripture references for each page are located at the top outside edges – making it easier to quickly find the passage of scripture I am looking for.
Content considerations:The Jesus Bible includes feature articles by Christian authors Randy Alcorn, Louie Giglio, Max Lucado, John Piper and Ravi Zacharias. Though it is not designed to be a typical study Bible, there are notes on specific passages scattered throughout, as well as a ‘table of weights and measures’ and a concordance. I appreciate the extra width of the margins as it leaves room to add my own personal notes. The beginning of each book begins with a title page describing Jesus based on that book of the Bible. For example, Genesis begins with a title page of “JESUS: OUR GLORIOUS CREATOR”.
Overall, I highly recommend the The Jesus Bible.
