Journal the Word Bible + A Giveaway! {CLOSED}

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.

Not sure which Journaling Bible to get, check out this one.

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.

Not sure which Journaling Bible to get, check out this one.

This Bible has a sturdy, black hard cover with an elastic band around it for holding the pages, along with a ribbon marker.  It also will lay flat in your hands or on the table, while you journal.  The margins are extra wide to allow ample room for doodling, illustrating your favorite verse, or just writing your reflections or thoughts on a passage.

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.

  2. A student actually gave me a Bible like this in May, and I have yet to use it! I like that you said it allows you to focus on that specific passage. Maybe the coming breaks will be the perfect time for me to explore it:)

  4. Well, in all honesty, I'd probably keep it. I've really been wanting to have a Bible to journal in. Plus, I think it's time for me to move to large print. lol

  5. I would definitely keep it and what an impression it would be to my older girls. Reading, writing, and drawing. Enhancing and emphasizing what I'm reading and learning.

  17. I would have to keep this Bible , such a wonderful way to make notes and journal your thoughts. I was reading my Bible the other day and I have so many slips of paper that I journal on that it is making it sooo thick.
