ESV Illuminated Bible: Review and GIVEAWAY!!

By: Melissa Baker

I am so excited to share this amazing Bible with you! It is the ESV Illuminated Bible. I seriously felt like royalty when I was reading this Bible. It is so beautiful, inside and out. The illustrations are incredible! There is enough room in the margins of each page to make notes or journal. The pages are lined in gold, which adds a very nice touch. The design of this Bible has that old fashioned feel to it, but the text is in the English Standard Version, which is very easy to read and understand. At the beginning of each book, there is a beautiful illustration with the title of the book. And in the back of the Bible, there is an Index of Title Pages, where it explains what each picture represents. I have never seen such a gorgeous Bible! I am just blown away by the creativity and detail that was put into it. This is such a beautiful Bible and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to read God's word in a very different and unique way, as well as anyone who is interested in journaling. 

The ESV Illuminated Bible places the full ESV text alongside over 500 elegantly hand-lettered gold ink illustrations by renowned artist Dana Tanamachi. Printed on thick cream-colored paper, the Bible's single-column text setting and wide margins provide generous space for additional notes, prayers, and designs—inviting readers to creatively engage with and reflect on the beauty of God's Word.
