This is not a study Bible. There's a few introductory pages at the front of the book. The back of the book includes an explanation of salvation, a short synopsis of every book of the Bible, and a one year reading plan.
This Bible (as the title suggests) is designed for journaling. Each page features two columns of scripture accompanied by a column for writing (or art). The lines are faint... I had to get pretty close to try to capture them with the camera. They are small, narrow lines. I appreciate the faintness of the lines for the pages where I want to add artwork instead of just notes.
The pages are still traditional-Bible-thin. I wouldn't paint without some kind of gesso (my opinion, your mileage may vary). You'll still need to consider carefully the mediums (pens, highlighters, etc.) you use if you don't want it to go through to the other page.
I appreciate the cardboard slipcover. I feel like it would keep my journaling Bible safe in a tote bag if I wanted to be outside or on the road with it.
Overall, it's simply charming. I feel inspired to start reading right away.
Read the description carefully, particularly the size. The book itself is smaller than I had anticipated (this is my fault) and I was surprised that the pages are more of a cream color than white, and also very sheer. As this is designed as a *journaling* Bible, I guess I was just expecting the pages to be just a bit heavier weight to stand up against different media. Fine for simple pencil work, but I don't think I'll be able to use markers or paint. Also wish I'd realized this had a 2 column format (there was very little info included when I ordered)
It says there are introductions to each book - but they're at the back, not with each book.
Still, it's a lovely presentation and the slipcover is nice (great for protection when on the go)
I was looking for a Bible to use for art journaling, and liked the interleaved design and the simple modern binding. I will be able to embellish this Bible extensively without compromising the readability.
This Bible is quite thick however. Definitely not something you want to carry with you. With all the extra blank pages, it's inevitable, just something to be aware of.
The ESV translation is clear and accurate without losing some of the traditional, beautiful, familiar phrasing of older translations.
All in all it's a good albeit not perfect Bible for my purposes. The balance between paper weight and Bible thickness is a tough compromise with no clear winners.
Will update with artwork once I create some.
As far as is pages, they are quite thin and you can see the text on the next page but it's not so thin that they feel flimsy. They are a nice cream color that doesn't glare in bright light.
Overall this a perfect study bible for me. Plenty of writing room, looks beautiful and can be carried with me to church.
