I have had the immense pleasure over the past few days of flipping through this complimentary copy of the ESV Illuminated Bible that I received from FlyBy Promotions. And let me just tell you, it is GORGEOUS!!!I signed up to be a part of this blog tour because the girls and I are studying medieval history in our homeschool this year, and I thought this Illuminated Bible would be a nice addition to our unit on illuminated manuscripts in a few months.
I was not wrong! This thing is gorgeous! The gold work scattered throughout is just lovely. You and your kids will want to spend hours just pouring over all the beautiful details scattered throughout the text!
As you can see, they have also left ample room for adding your own beautiful decorations with the Bible text in a single column and wide margins on both sides.
I don’t think I would ever personally dare to write in this Bible because it’s just too beautiful and perfect to risk marring, but I know many Bible journalers will love having room to add their own creative touches!
I also love the full-page verse spreads that are included. They are beautiful and inspire me to try my own hand at these….in my own journal. 🙂
I highly recommend this stunningly beautiful and reverent Bible if you are looking for a new one for yourself or someone you love. I feel confident that this will be treasured for a long time by anyone who has a chance to own one.
