I have been researching and looking for a journaling bible for a little while now. I found this one and fell in love with the look of it. It functions exactly as I would want, it is the single column and has the wide margins, which is what I was looking for. But upon receiving it and putting it together (which literally just involves putting the leather strap through a couple of pre-punched holes on the cover and tying a knot) I realized that the functionality of this bible with the long leather strap, while it looks beautiful, is cumbersome and would distract (at least me) from using it to the fullest. So, the very thing that attracted me to it, is what made me end up returning it.
As far as the bible itself, it is beautiful. I thought the words were printed at a legible size and the font it pleasing. The pages seem thick enough to write or illustrate on without a lot of bleed through. The leather on the inside is a little rough and is noticeably genuine leather, which will end up wearing beautifully, I think. It comes with a pen holder in the back, which is very useful for this bible and it's intended purpose. I am just sad that I am unable to love the leather strap as much as I had hoped. And without it, I fear the flap would just be in the way.
I've included a few pictures, it really is a beautiful bible and if you can get over my issue with it, I think you will love it!
The one thing I don't love is the microscopic point size used for the text! Not for everyday reading, for sure!
I just uploaded a quick video of what I have done in the first week of owning my ESV Journal Bible...please, check it out!
I'm not so old I need a large print editin, but I am pretty sure even folks who use reading glasses would have trouble with it.
The cover is nice, firm but flexible and the paper just the right thickness that text on the underside won't show though.
It was very Moleskine-esque with the elastic strap to keep it closed. If not for the small print, I'd be keepin this one!
Things that I love?
The pages fold down REALLY REALLY flat. I have over current/recent publications such as a very expensive Calfskin ESV study bible, a thin line ESV, another small single column ESV bible, a journal wide margin NASB, a couple parallel bibles, a Life Application NIV bible, a few types of "The Message" Bibles.
This Bible is hands down - waaay better in quality. I think this is going to be my go-to Bible (as far as the rest of them? I am okay with parting ways/donating or leaving them as shelf/reference Bibles).
The pages are light beige in color as others mentioned, the type does visible come through the pages (ghosting), but I would have to agree with some other reviews, the pages are matte, very smooth, but not slick and "sticky" like most recent publications of the Bible (the ESV Study Bible is one that comes to mind).
The leather version of this is amazing, I am glad I went with this version, every time I wrap up the Bible, I use that as a tangible reminder to guard my heart from the sins/evil of the world. It is a great remind to protect my heart, and not let it be swayed from the pressures of people or temptations of lust, or other personal desires/greed.
I highly recommend this Bible - and it might even make an amazing gift to friends/loved ones in the future!
