I was pretty excited to receive this bible in the mail today. I’ve been eyeing both reader’s bibles and single column journaling bibles for some time now trying to decide which would make most sense for me. I think this one is a great choice.
The bible feels and looks like a “regular” hardback book. It’s heavy – the bible is 1800 plus pages, but it doesn’t feel overwhelming at all. I love the idea of reading without the chapter and verse numbers to get a different “feel” when reading the text. This should be particularly interesting when reading the Proverbs. I suspect that once in a while I’ll get tripped up trying to figure out verse numbers after I come up to familiar passages as I’m reading. But I can live with that.
I’ve also heard very good things about this particular bible translation: the Christian Standard Bible so I’m glad to finally have one on my shelf.
Definitely just for home use and for personal reading, this is a great bible to add to your home and to give as gifts to your kids and other family members.
I received a copy of the bible in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.
