The ESV Single Column Journaling Bible is a complete redesign of the original Journaling Bible. The Bible text is laid out in an easy-to-follow, single-column format. Ruled lines in the extra-wide margins match up with each line of Bible text, enabling users to more easily align their notes with specific verses.
PatriciaLouisianaAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Love Love Love this Bible!July 9, 2014PatriciaLouisianaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5There are a few things about this Bible that I am enjoying (1) the ESV version is very easy to understand and my favorite (2) the font size could have been larger but is a comfortable size for me (3) the color of the paper makes the print easy to read and the quality of the paper is similar to notebook paper. I also had my name imprinted, something I was quite nervous about, but I never should have stressed because it looked great. Thank you so much for a quality bible that will be used for many years to come. :)
Randy A BrownTNAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5I love this layoutNovember 27, 2012Randy A BrownTNAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Crossway's nice ESV Journaling Bible is now available in single column format. All the basics are here: sewn binding, paragraph format, single column, ruled lines for notes, cream paper, and a bold font.
Cover and Binding
It seems to be durable; this Bible is meant to be used. It has an elastic strap to keep the Bible closed.
The binding is sewn, allowing it to stay open and lay flat when opened to any page. You won't have to hold the Bible open to write in Genesis or Revelation. This is essential for journaling.
The font is small, but it's still very easy to read because it's sharp and bold. I've seen reports of around 7.5 but that could be the leading. I usually want a larger print font, but I haven't had any trouble reading this text (except for after a long day of looking at a computer screen). If I could make one change it might be to increase the font size, but this small text will not keep me from using it.
The verse numbers and headings in the text are even bolder. I like that a lot. Bold verse numbers greatly help when looking for specific verses. The bold headings stand out and help break up the page, giving it a better designed look.
The text is in single column, paragraph format. Poetry is set in verse. Verses that are Old Testament quotes are centered, making them stand out from the rest of the passage. This layout is beautiful. It makes the text much more readable because it feels natural.
The outside margins are lined for writing. They are 2 inches wide and have a line for every line of text. The ruled lines are narrow ruled, so you'll have to write small.
The paper is thick and opaque, and has a deep cream tint. At first I thought it was too dark, but after using it for a few days it has become my favorite paper in any Bible. Some ghosting does show through, but I believe that's due to the boldness of the text.
There are footnotes at the bottom of the page that are keyed to the text with numbers. The footnotes go throughout the whole Bible, but the references are only in the New Testament. Footnotes include alternate translations, Hebrew and Greek explanations, explanatory notes, and technical notes.
There are two types of cross-references. There are references for parallel passages in the Gospels, and there are references for Old Testament quotes in the New Testament. References are keyed with letters.
Footnote and reference keys are not in bold, so they blend with the text. This helps keep the text readable.
It doesn't have very much in the way of extras, but it's fine for the purpose of a journaling Bible. This way there are not a lot of distractions. â€˜
There is a table of weights and measures. It also includes monetary units. It show Biblical units, American and metric equivalents, and Biblical equivalents.
There is a daily reading plan that gives you a passage from the OT, Psalms, and the NT. You can keep up with where you are by the date that's printed in the reading plan.
There is one ribbon. It would almost be nice to have three ribbons - one for each portion of Scripture in the reading plan, but since the reading plan has the date it's not that necessary. The ribbon is long enough to be useful.
I find that this is the Bible I pick up to read more than any Bible I own. I love the layout, the paper, and the print. This is now the standard that I compare all Bibles to. It feels durable and looks great. I would like to see a version of this Bible in every translation. It's an amazing Bible at any price. It's even a great Bible for taking notes and just using like you would a regular wide-margin Bible. I highly recommend this Bible for journaling, note-taking, and general reading.
Crossway provided this Bible free for review. I was not required to give a positive review- only an honest review. My opinion is my own.
