ESV Journaling Bible, Antique Floral design, Hardcover
Old school/Rugged Manly Bible
I love this Bible, it looks like it just came out of a settler's saddle bag! This is a good quality bible, with a good quality leather cover. I love the "flap-n-strap" design of this rugged looking Bible. I have read some complaints about the print size, but I am having no issues with it at all. I will say that if you are one whose penmanship is of the large variety, the note sections may be a challenge for you as they are small. I personally write fairly small to begin with, so again, I am having no issues with that either. I am a fan of the ESV but I do wish the book introductions were at the beginning of each book; they have placed them all at the back of the Bible for some reason.
BOTTOM LINE: This is a fantastic old school, rugged and manly Bible and I highly recommend it!

This unique Bible was purchased to include my many marginal notes scattered in various Bibles through the decades. The idea of having all the notes within one Bible was appealing. The Bible's look of natural leather with strap is attractive and the "block" size of the book is nice. The quality of the paper throughout is accepting of my black fine point ballpoint ink pen; back-to-back page notes show clearly. The English Standard Translation version makes for smooth reading and understanding. The black text is comfortable reading for my 63-yr.-old eyes.

I ordered this bible about 3 years ago and I love it! The design on the cover is beautiful. The pages are just the right thickness for writing on them, and they won't tear easily. The cream color of the pages is easy on your eyes and great for reading long periods at a time. There is plenty of space for taking notes, but the bible isn't really heavy. I love everything about this bible. If you aren't sure whether or not you want to buy a journaling bible, I would recommend it. Whenever I take notes from certain verses, I will highlight the verses, and then every time I read that verse I am reminded about whatever I was compelled to take note of previously. I have found this very helpful.

Great Bible for the Notetaker/Journaler
This is a good Bible. The ESV is an accurate, yet readable translation. The paper is similar to notebook paper, with lines on the sides. The paper is thick and wont bleed through. If you enjoy taking notes or journaling your thoughts while reading the Word, then you will love this Bible!
