I understand that the print has to be smaller for a journaling Bible but it makes for long periods of reading difficult. Crossway does make good quality, sewn and attractive products though. This would be good for a teenager who has younger eyes.
i was in love with this bible the moment I unwrapped it. It is comfortable in my hands, the binding allows for easy handling at any book of this bible. The paper and print is non glare and easy on the eyes. My intention is to fully make use of the note section on each page.
This Bible is so elegant and exciting to read. there is just enough space for notes and journaling. heavy but perfect paper. If you really want the leather and wrap around.like I did, you wont be disappointed!!!!
I am very pleased with the ESV Single Column Journaling Bible. I was seeking the ESV translation, and a Large Print version which has made reading the Word much easier. I have been wanting to start journaling in my Bible, but I have never felt comfortable writing in the ones I have. It seemed like I was defacing the Lord's words. Purchasing a Bible intended for the purpose of making notations and capturing my thoughts while I read and study, has given me permission to mark in my Bible and is enhancing my time in the Word. I wish I had known about this type of Bible sooner. One of the best features is the paper quality which allows me to write without the ink bleeding through to the other side of the page. Of course this is made even easier by the journaling pens and pencils I also purchased from Christianbooks. I already recommended it to Mama and she is also very pleased with her purchase, particularly since she wanted a soft cover, ESV, Large Print Bible. We are looking forward to studying together and having the same Bible makes it easier, and we both love the name inscription you added to the front cover. Being able to purchase these Bibles at a sale price was just and added bonus. I have become a big fan of Christianbooks in the past couple of years. The sales, the products and the service I receive has me recommending your company to others frequently.
I am blown away by the quality, and value of this journaling bible. The cover is simply gorgeous!! This is my second journaling bible as I filled up the last one (single column esv crossway with the leaf motif) in just under a year. I decided to purchase this bible because i wanted an heirloom bible that i could fill with my illustrations, notes and prayers to give to my children. I will be purchasing more as i fill up this beauty!
