BethanyAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Beautiful Addition to my Quiet Time with God!December 2, 2019BethanyAge: 25-34Gender: femaleI have a hard time writing in my Bibles (with the exception of the My Creative Bible and Inspire Bible because they are specifically made for journaling). But sometimes writing is very helpful to interacting and digging deeper into the text. For that reason, the ESV Illuminated Scripture Journal was the perfect choice for me! I chose to start with the book of Isaiah.
The Isaiah journal is a paperback book with a beautiful gold foil picture across the front cover, and the word "Isaiah" printed on the spine. The scripture is printed on every other page, giving you plenty of room for journaling. The journal contains the whole book of Isaiah. There are also scripture verses and little pictures in gold ink printed on some of the blank pages of the journal. These are beautiful, and usually do not take up the whole page, so you still have room to add your own work. I also appreciated that the paper is thicker than what you would see in a normal Bible, so you have more options are to what mediums to use. I use my micron pens and a yellow gel highlighter, and there is no bleed through or ghosting.
My illuminated scripture journal is helping me to slow down and really read the book of Isaiah. I use the blank pages beside the scripture to record prayers, copy verses that really stood out to me, take notes on what I am reading, and do some basic art work. I am not an artist, but it has been a fun and meaningful experience. I feel like I am really soaking in the book of Isaiah, and I have a feeling that I will be picking up more of these journals in the future. They are pretty inexpensive, and would make a wonderful Christmas present!
I received a copy of this book from Crossway, in return for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
