With the latest craze of adult coloring books, there is even adult coloring Bibles for adults to connect more with God while studying His Word. My problem with coloring books and Bibles is my patience. I have no patience for coloring. Even as a child, I really didn't like coloring. I flew through my art projects in a matter of days when the teachers allowed us to have weeks to finish them. They were done and earned an A, but I worked faster. So even as an adult, I still have no patient for coloring.
But when Thomas Nelson came out with the Journal the Word Bible with wider margins, it peeked my interest. I LOVE to take notes in my Bible and write all over my margins, but there is never enough room. But the Journal the Word Bible has TWO inches of extra margins space next to the single column Words of God. There is even lines in the margins for someone like me who is OCD and likes things neat. This will be an awesome addition to add my thoughts that will stay for a long time.
While the inside of the NKJV captures my attention, the outside cover is hardback teal with a floral arrangement gracing the front cover. It is pretty and easy to hold, even though it is pretty thick. Inside, there is a blue ribbon for place marking. One of my favorite features is the lay flat spine. Nothing is more annoying than a book or Bible that flops close while I'm reading it. This will allow me to read and record without losing my place.
Overall, I have scanned a number of the coloring Bibles, and I didn't want something that would distract me from studying God's Word. With the Journal the Word Bible, I believe the Bible will be one that I will cherish and use during my study time. This would be a great Bible to pass on to my sons when they are older to cherish. Just like I have my grandparents Bible in my library. I highly recommend the Journal the Word Bible for fans of journals and studying the Bible but don't want to color.
I received a complimentary copy of the NKJV Journal the Word Bible Large Print from Thomas Nelson Publishing and the opinions stated are all my own.
