Check Out This New Breathtakingly Beautiful Bible from Crossway

November 20, 2017

Do you have a Bible you just love?

A few years ago I ordered a copy of the ESV Single Column Journaling Bible and fell in love with it (watch my video review here). I originally purchased it because I wanted a Journaling Bible and it was super affordable. But I couldn’t ask for a better Bible for every day use. My notes in the margins make flipping back through the pages extra special (I wrote about that here).

Because I love the ESV Single Column Journaling Bible so much, I was excited to hear about the new ESV Illuminated Bible. It’s also a single column journaling Bible and it is absolutely, breathtakingly beautiful. However, it’s so exquisite, I don’t think I could ever bring myself to mark in it. It makes me just want to cherish the Word of God in a whole new way.

If you are looking for a new Bible for yourself, or looking for one to give to someone special this Christmas, I would highly recommend the these Bibles, and this new Bible from Crossway would make a beautiful gift. I have one for a special someone on my list – AND I have one to bless one of my readers with (Special thanks to Propeller Fly By Promotions and Crossway for these Bibles).
