This Bible is such a blessing. The text is easy to read, the wording beautifully interpreted, poetic and understandable. The extras, like book introductions, devotionals, and even the beautiful artwork that invites the reader into each chapter all point to God’s story and inspire engagement with the Word of God.
The pages are unfortunately thin, though I know there are women who use this as a journaling Bible with paint. The main text is a crisp black against a clean white, but the art and additional maps and graphics can be hard to see and read because of the ghosting of the text. The devotions are written in an unfortunately tiny text, but I appreciate that they all point to the Gospel.
The gray linen cover is a classic, timeless statement and the cover pages are a fun monochrome print, but it’s the words that will draw you in. Though I hadn’t paid much attention to the translation before, it’s obvious that much thought and effort went into it. The SRT Bible website has more on that. The maps are an easy-to-follow, monochromatic style that is artsy and updated and useful.
Overall, it is a beautiful, thoughtful, inspiring representation of the Word of God! I’m thankful I was able to review it through the BH Bloggers program.
