After loosing Michael, reading the bible was very slow going. I could only read support books, a devotional, and my daughters scripture cards the weeks following Michael death. Yet, thankfully am finally back to daily readings. This Bible was a special gift for a new season.
I've had my old bible for 20 years, so to open a new one up daily was a new beginning for me. I needed it. I started in Genesis and also am rereading Revelation. I am the type of person that has to underline and make personal notes in my bible. This Illuminated Bible has worked out perfect because the margins are WIDE.
I don't use mine for art, but I do know Bible verse journaling as become a hobby for many. I am not too sure if markers would hold up on these pages but definitely colored pencils would. I personally have only used pencil so far because the bible is so clean and pretty! :) Each book has its own personal cover artwork all in gold lettering too. I especially like that it is ONLY the Bible. There are no study notes or themed devotionals throughout. Only gold lettered scripture art. This version is a Hardback with a slide in book jacket. I love it. See ALL the details below.
(Note: The only downfall for me--- I really like the New King James Version. From what I have heard though it is the most similar.)
Good news, I get to offer it to one of my readers!
