This was a great buy, all around. The quality of the Bible itself is topnotch, the leather is gorgeous, the font is clear and readable, and the devotionals are non-invasive and appropriate to the text. I was not familiar with the Jesus Calling devotionals, so was a little concerned because sometimes devotional Bibles can be REALLY devotional....and not great for every day reading. That will not be the case with this one at all.
This Bible would be an excellent addition to your library and a great gift.
I see other reviews saying that this Bible wouldn't last and to that I say it comes with a lifetime guarantee that it will last and considering the publisher has been in business since 1798 I think it is fair to think that they will be in business long enough to follow through with this guarantee.
This Bible has a very soft leather and a place in the back for notes. It has the gold edged pages and is a good size.
My favorite part is that the pages are slightly thicker than the Bibles that I already own because this makes it feel less fragile and also allows for note taking and marking/highlighting with the Gel highlighters without being able to see through or damaging other pages.
It is not tabbed but you can either book mark these pages with post-it notes or you can purchase for very cheap the Bible tabs available here at Christianbook.com
This Bible comes in an awesome box that can be easily wrapped for gift giving.
This book claims to be personal messages from Jesus to the author. God is portrayed as both a permissive grandfather and an ardent lover as He expresses His unending love and care for us...but without our confession, repentance or the gospel. The reader whether saved or not is promised God's full devotion and presence. It is man centered and appeals to our vanity- WE are the focal point, not God. It is experiencial, uses New Age language and was inspired by a New Age Book. Most importantly, it fails the test by contradicting Scripture (ex: Jesus: "Peace is your greatest need." Sorry, Forgiveness is. I fear this is a demonic channeling.
I purchased the Jesus Calling Devotional Bible as a Christmas gift for my mom. I knew that she had the Jesus Calling Devotional book and really loved it, so I thought this Bible would be a perfect companion/gift. She has called me a couple of times already to tell me how much she loves the Bible and how it is giving her the encouragement to face each day. The cover is very nice, it feels padded and the colors are vibrant. The size is perfect for holding and reading. I am so very happy with this purchase.
