size and price

Great Bible for artwork. The pages accept various types of from acrylic and water colors to pencils and crayons. I do not use this as my study Bible - only for art work. The name of individual books block out much of the page making them more difficult to work on. The font is very small and I wish it was available in other translations, - but again, I do NOT use it as my study Bible so I'm ok with that. Also very expensive even for a legacy Bible.

Can’t wait to start!

It’s a big beautiful book and I can’t wait to start reading and illustrating my thoughts. It lays flat and the pages are a little thicker than a typical bible. There’s a lot of room in the margins! The cover is thick and pliable. The book comes in a very nice storage box and I learned that Dayspring’s customer service is second to none when my box arrived dented. They immediately sent another box out. PERFECT. I am very happy with my purchase and this company.

Don't worry about the small font

First, I own over 40 study-type Bibles that I have purchased or have been gifted over the last 20 years. The reason for this is that I love to have the ability to read verses in different translations and study content to help me betterunderstand God's Word.

I'm currently/actively working in 4 journaling Bibles, a hymnal, the IF Praise Book, and a mixed-media notebook. With that said, I absolutely adore the new Illustrating Bible. I was under the impression that the wider margins and lay-flat spiral were the major selling points of this specific Bible. There are already journaling Bibles on the market that provide a larger font and smaller margin. If it's important for you to be able to read your journaling Bible easily, I would suggest you stay with whatever Bible you're already using. This stunning Bible is clearly for those who want more room to create.

Also, many of us who journal have both a Bible we study from and a journaling Bible. The translation for me (personally) wasn't a factor, as my study Bible is NASB+. But for a moment, imagine they made the font bigger. Since the width of the margin is important for this specific journaling Bible and others have mentioned the heaviness of the Bible, can you imagine how much larger this Bible would be with a larger font? If you enlarge the font, it will take many more pages to fit it all on.

As others have stated, it is a pretty heavy Bible.
I understand wanting the font size easily readable and in your preferred translation, and larger margins for us to create in, etc. However, all the suggestions I've read cost money. I believe that Illustrated Faith/Dayspring did a wonderful job with all the design limitations and spiritual priorities they had to consider. Great job Dayspring!!

Despite Slight Disadvantages, It's an Amazing Tool

I'll be totally honest in saying that I think this Bible is cumbersome; it will not travel well, and I have no intention of doing so. I also have found that it's a little difficult to turn the pages over the spiral bounding. You must exercise caution when doing so, even though the pages are significantly thicker. Altogether, however, it is a wonderful Bible, and I have really enjoyed working in it! The extra space is amazing, I really love the smaller print, and I've found that I can easily sew in my Bible (which was a feat before)! Thank you for creating a visionary project for creatives like me!

Great Journaling Bible

There is so many things I like about my new Bible - plenty of room on the page for journaling and art work, thickness of the paper, the cover, and so much more. I can’t wait to get busy.

Wonderful Journaling Bible

I love that there is so much space to journal and create art. The pages don’t bleed through when using a variety of media. The size is not what I will carry around with me but didn’t buy it for that. The print is pretty small so the reason for only 4 stars. Larger print would have been a 5 star. I’m very glad I went ahead and spent the extra money, it is well worth it.

Love it!

This Bible is incredible! I have to admit, I'm not extremely talented in the arts department but I love sticky notes and writing things/history out! The margins are perfect for that. I am obsessed with the spiral and love that I have the room to incorporate other translations. I do wish that the NT cited where the referenced OT verse was from (it is just in bold). Definitely a 5 star edition. It is slightly heavier than I imagined but you could tote it to church or Bible study if you're feeling frisky! (:

Font and translation

This is a lovely Bible for journaling with loads of space and I like the square pages. It's heavy but I won't be grabbing it to take to worship services. The font is too tiny. I would give up a little of the space to have at least a 9 point font. I don't like the translation--have never seen it before or known anyone who has ever chosen it. However, this is not my study Bible, it's my journaling Bible so I can sort of ignore this translation and find it in the translation of choice to read and study before journaling in this one. I won't be sending it back.

Not quite satisfied

I Love this Bible, don’t get me wrong but the coil bound is not letting it lay down flat on my desk. The top half is but I think something is wrong with the bottom where the coil is cut and it’s binding against the main cover. I’d hate to have to pay to ship it back since it is so heavy. It’s not something that happened during shipping it just looks different from the way the coil was cut and then bent inward. Very frustrating. If it weren’t for that I would definitely rate this Bible a 5 star instead of 3

Swooning!

It’s gorgeous. It’s delightful. It’s big and, yes, a bit heavy, but it’s going to make a beautiful coffee table piece for all to browse through. May they see a glimpse of God’s richness on every page❤️ P.S. It’s worth every single penny!
