Review of ESV Illuminated Bible {and Giveaway}

Art journaling is a great way to creatively interact with the Word of God. The ESV Illuminated Bible features illustrations by renowned lettering artist, graphic designer, and illustrator, Dana Tanamachi. Features of the ESV Illluminated Bible include 9-point text size, black letter text, 2-color printing, 64 full-page custom book opener illustrations, 50 full-page verse illustrations, 250+ hand-lettered margin versus, and 100+other illustrations throughout. Printed on thick cream-colored paper, the Bible's single-column text setting and wide margins provide generous space for additional notes, prayers, and designs, welcoming readers to creatively engage with and reflect on the beauty of God's word in their own way. 


Overall, the ESV Illuminated Bible is made very well. It features a cloth over board cover and is a little bit heavier than your standard Bible, one reason being that the pages are a little bit thicker. This Bible also comes in a matching box to provide extra protection when being stored. The illustrations are absolutely magnificent...quite mesmerizing really, especially the title pages. There is an adequate amount of room on each page where you can add your own notes, prayers, quotes, designs, etc. There is also an index of title pages in the back of the Bible and a short description, telling you the meaning behind each illustration. Overall, this is an incredibly beautiful Bible and would make a great gift for the Christian in your life.

  16. I recently became interested in Bible journaling and thought it would be a wonderful way to sit down with the Lord and have some quiet, reflective time while enjoying my creative side! I can see myself waking up a little earlier to grab some quiet time while my toddler still sleeps so I can devote this time to the Bible. When I began searching for the perfect journaling Bible, I noticed that this Crossway Illuminated Bible was to debut in just a few weeks! So, I waited, and then stumbled upon this giveaway! I hope to win a copy of this Bible so I can continue my walk with the Lord in a creative way. The gorgeous details and designs will inspire my own artwork and designs as I study the Word! Thank you for this opportunity!
