My Review:

I’ve been looking for a journal Bible for my artistic daughter. I thought that reviewing NIV My Journal Bible, Pink Published by Zondervan would be a great opportunity to find her a journal Bible.This book is also more compact than I was expecting. The size is aprox 8x6x1.75. The hardcover is nice.  I was expecting thicker paper based on the book description. Although the paper is thicker than most Bibles, I would still like it a bit thicker to use pens, markers and paint. The Bible itself is pretty cut and dry. There are no cross references or notes which is perfect for journaling. There are also no reference or maps sections except for the presentation page, the table of contents page, the list of the books of the Bible in alphabetical order, a preface in the front and a table of weights and measures on the last page. The preface explains the goals, translation philosophy, textual basis, footnotes and formatting of the NIV version. My daughter was excited to see this book come in the mail. One of the first thing she does is smells the book she is reviewing. She said it smells like a puzzle. I recommend this journal bible for anyone looking for a compact journaling Bible.

Im a stay at home, homeschooling mom of 5 awesome kids. But for fun on the side like doodles in the margin, I like to sew, edit books, design websites, make homeschool resources, study Biblical dream interpretation, decorate cakes, and make pinatas along with many other things including graphic design. I love books and researching. There is always something to learn.
