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.
I received a copy of this Bible courtesy of Flyby Promotions and Crossway. I was not required to review positively and all opinions are my own.
Just Commonly5 Stars Out Of 5Gorgeous!November 16, 2017Just CommonlyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I don't think I've ever own a more beautiful Bible than The Illuminated ESV Bible from Crossway. I'm not going to compare the different versions or translations, but the presentation and ease of use of this Bible only. As a designer, I love the thought and creative interpretations of the artist, Dana Tanamachi illustrated in this Bible. With the gorgeous gold ink illustrations that at times span a full page, it's a delight when one is reading the Bible, and see the verse highlighted in these illustrations.
In terms of the layout, I find the font of a decent size, and particularly like the space on the edge of the page for users' own personal notes and sketches. Personally, I'm not sure I can do it! It's so pretty that I don't feel like I should mess with it. However, I think instead of color, I'll use my thin black ink pens to keep the contrast with the gold ink. The quality of this Bible is top-notch. The navy clothbound (also available in hunter green and burgundy red) gives it a beautiful touch of homeyness, and not too refine that we need gloves to touch! The sturdy cardboard slipcase is also clothbound and be sure to keep the Bible itself in good condition. In all, I'm very satisfy with this Bible. It'll make great gifts. Perfect timing if you ask me as the Christmas season will be upon us shortly!

Mark5 Stars Out Of 5very niceNovember 15, 2017MarkQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The ESV has become one of my favorite Bible versions. I have a couple different ESV Bibles already, but this one looked interesting, so I requested it.
This is a pretty cool Bible. I am not one to journal in a Bible, but am becoming more and more interested in doing so. This Bible has a lot of room on the margins to jot thoughts or even draw, if that is your thing.
The illustrations are eye catching and adds a lot to the Bible.
The Bible has the look of an encyclopedia, and comes in a matching open end box such as a boxed set of books come in.
If you are wanting a Bible to carry to church, this may not be the right Bible for that. However, if you want a Bible for personal reading and one you can journal and write notes in, this is a great Bible for that.
I was given a copy of this Bible in exchange for my honest review.
SuzieNashville, TNAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Perfect for Journaling or Notetaking for Yourself or as a GiftNovember 13, 2017SuzieNashville, TNAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In addition to my normal book reviews, with the approach of the holidays, I hoped to highlight some other products that would make good gifts for those hard to shop for family and friends. The ESV Illuminated Bible was presented to me at just the right time. And Im giving one away to one of my blog visitors so be sure and stay tuned to find out how to enter.
A bit of an anecdote for you before I show you this gorgeous Bible. This week, I checked my mail and in my box was a scrap of paper. The postman had written on it that I had a package in the office but it had opened in shipping and could not be scanned.
I took the paper into the office and handed it to one of the workers. He was a little surprised and said, Is this what they gave you?
I told him I thought they just wanted me to know the package was opened. A few minutes later, the guy brings my package to me and says, That looks really cool. I peeked at it.
I have to agree, it does look really cool but when I opened it, it became even more so. The wide margins for notes along with beautiful illustration and graphic verses is ideal for either journaling or taking sermon notes alongside the text. Theres an index of all of the artwork at the back of the Bible as well.
The ESV Illuminated Bible comes in a sturdy cardboard sleeve, making gift wrapping easy and quick. But really, with that cover, it doesnt even need further gift wrapping.
If you have thought about Bible journaling or know someone who is a visual learner, this Bible is the perfect giftone that contains the greatest story ever told.
