TJ5 Stars Out Of 5Beautiful BibleDecember 3, 2017TJQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0It is a joy to read this Bible. I am so glad I purchased this Bible and, it is the most beautiful Bible I own. It would also make a great gift for anyone you love. The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous, and they are in gold print. I have many Bibles, and this is the best one I have just for the enjoyment of reading the Bible.
Chas Ray5 Stars Out Of 5Absolutely BeautifulNovember 28, 2017Chas RayQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Recently, I was offered the opportunity to review the ESV Illuminated Bible. I love bibles of all kinds but I'm especially fond of the journaling bibles. When the Bible arrived it was a bit heavier than I thought. That's due to it being a hard cover bible. I prefer a soft cover bible, because they are lighter and easier to tote, but this cover is absolutely gorgeous!The inside is filled with beautiful illustrations in gold that you can color, or you could just leave them as they are. There are also margins on each page for you to add your own notes or draw if you'd like. Even the back cover is a thing of beauty! I love how they included a scripture verse on the back. All in all I was extremely impressed with the ESV Illuminated Bible. From the front cover to the back it truly is a work of art. I enjoyed the fact it is in the ESV translation, I enjoy several translations but when I'm journaling I want one that's easier to read and understand. I love how it comes with pictures already drawn, that way you aren't just looking at a blank page, which can be intimidating. The margins are generous so if you want to try your hand at drawing, or if you're like me and an avid note taker there is plenty of room for that too. The ESV Illuminated bible is a terrific value and would make an excellent gift for anyone on your list!

Lacey4 Stars Out Of 5Beautiful journaling BibleNovember 17, 2017LaceyQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I've been enjoying this Bible for a few weeks now (compliments of FlyBy Promotions), and here are the things I've noticed about it: (We'll start with the negatives.)
Although this Bible has the entirety of the ESV text (a translation that I love), it does not have a concordance in the back. I do love having that handy index that helps me when I'm sitting in Sunday School thinking about a particular text and I cannot for the life of me remember the reference. Sure, my Bible app can search for me, but I'm still a paper Bible kind of girl.
Along the same lines, this Bible also doesn't have cross-references or footnotes. I do so love to know where Scripture texts are cross-referenced, and if I'm using this Bible, I have to access another resource to find out this information.
Beauty. There are many beautiful gold illustrations throughout, including full-page illustrations. Dana Tanamachi designed a full-page illustration for the beginning of each book of the Bible, and she has provided an explanation for the way she designed each of these particular pages at the back of the book.
Also, though I wouldn't call these *thick* pages, they are thicker pages than the tissue-paper-thin pages of most Bibles. The text is single-column and the margins are wide. These things are super helpful for those of you who are artsy-fartsy Bible journalers. I wish I was talented in this arena, but even I have loved the extra room for notetaking.
This particular Bible comes with a hard, cloth-covered cover in a permanent slipcover box.
This is a spectacular journaling/art Bible. It's a beautiful, creative way to read and meditate on God's Word.
It's not a study Bible. As I mentioned above, there aren't concordances, cross-references, footnotes...There are no study notes or maps. But of course, all of these things are accessible elsewhere.
Seasons of GraceAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Simple and BeautifulNovember 17, 2017Seasons of GraceAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This Bible is beautiful! The hardback, cloth covered board is embossed in gold flower detail, and throughout the text on the pages you will find verses in the side margins done in gold lettering. The book titles are done on a page with gold detailed artwork. The text is English Standard Version, which is easy to read and understand.
Although lovely, this Bible is pretty simple. That is one thing I like about it. Not much there to distract you from paying attention to God's Word. It contains a basic introduction in front and an index of the title pages in the back. There are wide spaced margins on the side for your own artwork or doodling. It also comes in a hard case box for protection. It is a bit heavy for carrying, but would make a wonderful Bible for home study and reading as a family. It would also make a very nice gift for someone you love.
