Special thanks to the Blythe Daniel Agency and Thomas Nelson Bibles for sending me a copy of Journal the Word Bible to review and one to share!
I have been enjoying Bible journaling for well over a year now and the pages are starting to get filled with my illustrations. There are so many different journaling and note taking Bibles out there, that it can be overwhelming.
The thing that makes journaling Bibles different from the Bible you grew up with is the margins are wide and some are ruled, which allows for drawing or writing notes. The Journal the Word Bible comes in KJV and NKJV translations. I selected the NKJV version to review since I feel like it is a little easier to understand, although many of the verses I have committed to memory is from the KJV translation.
I enjoy my journaling Bible because it helps me to focus on the passage, especially when I am trying to decide how to illustrate it. It is also good for those who like to take notes on a sermon or during a Bible study, eliminating the need for a separate notebook. It is not a study Bible, as it has limited footnotes at the bottom of the pages.
Features of the Journal the Word Bible:
- Lay-flat binding - great for getting into the inner crease
- Ruled lines in the extra wide margins
- Larger print
- Red-letter print
- Easy to read section headings
A journaling Bible is a great gift idea (Christmas is coming!) or you can save it to pass down as an heirloom with your personal thoughts and illustrations.
Would you keep the Bible or give it as a gift if you won?
