Which Bible?

Which journaling Bible should you get? Making a decision will be easier once you answer these questions:

  • check
    Which version do you prefer? NLT ? ESV ? KJV ? NIV ? NKJV ?
  • check
    Do you want some illustrated pages for coloring and some for drawing or lettering?
  • check
    Do you want full color illustrations?
  • check
    Do you want lots of room wide margins and bottom margin area?
  • check
    Do you want lots of room like a full blank page for every page?

Isn’t WONDERFUL that there are now Bibles for all the desires listed above? When I purchased my first journaling Bible (I have seven now) there was only one available. Now there are a dozen!

Inspire Bible 

Inspire was the first Bible Journaling Bible available. I have one and really like it. I love the teal colors.  

It is the first Bible of its kind―with over 400 beautiful line-art illustrations spread throughout the Bible. 

Single-column, wide-margin New Living Translation Bible that will be a cherished resource for creative art journaling.

Full-page and partial-page Scripture art is attractively displayed throughout the Bible, and the illustrations can be colored in to make each Bible unique, colorful, and customizable. 

Two Inch Margins

Every page of Scripture has two-inch-wide margins, with either Scripture line-art or ruled space for writing notes and reflections, or to draw and create.

 Inspire is the only single-column, wide-margin Bible available in the popular New Living Translation, and it is designed uniquely to appeal to art-journaling and adult coloring book enthusiasts.

Interleaved Bible

I just order the ESV Journaling Bible, Interleaved Edition for myself. I have and love the Inspire Bible but I wanted a full blank page for notes.   Patterned after the “Blank Bible” that eighteenth-century preacher and theologian Jonathan Edwards used to record more than 5,000 notes about God’s Word, the ESV Journaling Bible, Interleaved Edition is truly unique, featuring a full, blank page next to every page of Bible text. 

Patterned after the Bible that Jonathan Edwards, the 18th-century preacher and theologian, used to record more than 5,000 notes about God’s Word, the ESV Journaling Bible, Interleaved Edition features a full, blank page next to every page of Bible text. Created for Bible readers looking for as much space as possible for sermon notes, personal reflections, prayers, or artwork, this edition features cream-colored paper and a durable binding to ensure that it lasts a lifetime.

Features:

  • Includes a full, blank page for notes, reflections, and prayers next to every page of Bible text
  • Cream-colored paper
  • Through the Bible in a Year reading plan
  • Smyth-sewn binding
  • Permanent slipcase

As you can see in the image it is quite a bit bigger than a regular journaling Bible. I love mine!


Illustrator’s Notetaking Bible

The Illustrator’s Notetaking Bible combines two hot trends: Bible journaling and adult coloring. Through unique illustrations included on every page spread, readers, illustrator’s, and notetakers alike learn to engage the biblical text in a new way.  


KJV Creative Bible

My Creative Bible is an exciting new concept in ways to experience the word of God in Scripture. This King James Version Journaling Bible is single-column printed, with two-inch-wide ruled margins for note-taking, scribing your reflections or creative expression. Nearly 400 hand-drawn, Scripture accompanying line-art illustrations are placed throughout the Bible to enhance embracement of The Word. There is an index of the Scripture artwork – line-art suitable for filling. Users will find this an invaluable visual tool for immersion and Bible study. 


The Message Canvas Bible

Using The Message’s creative language and vivid metaphors, your imagination will be bursting with ideas for crafting, coloring, and drawing. Meditate on the very words of Scripture, and hear God’s voice speaking to your heart.

  • Make this Bible one of a kind by adding your own beauty and style.
  • Fill the extra space with your own illustrations and prayers.
  • Immerse yourself in the words of Scripture.
  • Decorate this Bible as a gift for someone you love.
  • Slow down as you color and enjoy a more relaxed pace.

Let the story of God paint the canvas of your imagination!
