From filigree, Scripture quotes, and unique images, these line-drawn illustrations are waiting to be brought to life.

Over 600 images, including text designs, images, and filigree

Open margin space for creating new, personalized images
Light grey illustrations allowing readers to add color to each image
Lined margins for note taking

Here are my thoughts.....
I loved this Bible! So beautiful even without all the illustrations colored in. I love that there is also margins to take notes. I have always loved the HCSB translation so that was an added plus to this Bible. I got this Bible to use during devotion time as a way to concentrate on the scriptures I was reading. I liked how almost every page has designs/lines for notetaking. Most of the drawings are beautifully done, but there are some drawings in the Bible that seemed weird to me. They seem a bit Hindu religion inspired and were not my favorite. Anytime a person is drawn in the Bible it is done in an odd way and there were circles on their cheeks. I am not familiar with Eastern mysticism but I would definitely do my research before I purchased this Bible. I am giving this Bible 3 stars because I love the HCSB, the cover is nice and I like the way it is laid out. I am just not crazy about all of the illustrations.
I received a copy of this Bible from the B&H bloggers program in exchange for an honest review. A positive review was not required.
