KJV Expressions Bible deluxe hardcover

9781619708983oJournaling bibles have become popular in recent years, which is a good new for those who love journaling. The KJV Expressions Bible deluxe hardcover (Hendrickson, 2017) is one of the most recent journaling bibles published and available in the market.

The outer: The hardcover in this Bible combines imitation leather in brown tone and soft vinyl. Both material feel strong, well crafted, and very elegant. The size (6 ½ x 7 ¼ inches) makes this Bible manageable and ideal for its purpose: journaling. The spine is well attached and glued to the book, ant it transmits the sensation that this Bible is ideal for traveling, camping, and be used outside the office as well.

The inside: The version used in this Bible is the KJV. The type used is 8 point, which is a decent type. The text is placed in single column, allowing a space of 2+ inches for margin, a generous space for notetaking and journaling. Hendrickson claims the paper in this Bible is high-quality paper. My first impression is that this is correct as paper feels strong and perfect for writing.

This bible is highly recommendable for journaling and notetaking lovers both experienced and incited note takers.

CEB Study Bible with Apocrypha

For many decades, the Christian community has been blessed with new publications of study Bibles. There are study Bibles addressed to every Christian, devotional study Bibles, and study Bibles addressed to pastors and those in ministry.

I would like to introduce and review the CEB Study Bible with Apocrypha. CEB is the acronym for Common English Bible. This Bible is published by Abingdon Press and is a very impressive and solid study Bible. But, what makes this Bible a unique study Bible?

Considering this is a study Bible, the first thing we should look at is study resources, specifically study notes. Readers will find abundant and thorough notes in every chapter and almost every verse. The notes are written in a professional way with the contribution of scholars from different countries. The quality and academic perspective of the commentaries make this Bible an astounding source of information for readers, perhaps one of the most complete among study Bibles. However, it must be said that the CEB Study Bible is not a Bible for academic use exclusively since the way the notes are written is accessible for everyone.

One detail that I as a reader really appreciate from this Bible is that verses on the note section are highlighted in blue color while the notes are in black color. This detail makes reading and studying this Bible more dynamic and fluent, as it is easier to note where a verse note begins and where it ends. Chapters numeric identification are printed in orange and pericopes headings in red wine color. These small details are moreimportant than we think. They accomplish two important functions: to facilitate study time and to make it more enjoyable. As for the text, it is displayed in single column and the font is a mid-size font.

Notes distinguished by colors

The CEB Study Bible also contains sidebars on themes that require more detailed explanation so readers can obtain a broader perspective about what is being commented. Another remarkable feature this Bible offers is on margin cross references. Verses being referenced are also marked in blue color to make it easier to navigate through the cross references.

Every book is introduced by a detailed introduction with an exegetical outline. Illustrations (more than 200), photograph, and charts are also abundant through this Bible. Maps are high-quality maps; 21 full-color maps designed by National Geographic and fully indexed. This Bible also contains an abbreviations, terms, and sources list, a measures table, and a Hebrew calendar, just to mention some of the many features this Bible contains. The concordance is an excellent resource as well and was developed by Glenn Weaver and BibleWorks software.

The volume I received from Abingdon Press is the bonded leather cordovan edition. The leather feels as high-quality material, flexible, made for endurance, and very well crafted. Color, tone, and material make this Bible very elegant.

Summarizing, this is a high-quality Bible for both reasons study resources and material. This Bible is an excellent tool for scholars, seminary students, pastors, and Christians in general who want to deepen the Scriptures and grow in their daily Bible study. Price is reasonable if we consider the quality of the Bible we have in front of us. I highly recommend it.

Guys Slimline Bible

978-1-4143-9766-5One of the latest Bibles Tyndale has introduced into the Christian literature market is the Guys Slimline Holy Bible. The version used in this Bible is the well-known New Living Translation (NLT). I think that is a wise move to use this translation for a Bible addressed mainly to teenagers. The NLT version is ideal for daily reading, personal study and devotional, especially for young people who may have a hard time navigating through the King James Version or any other classic version.

This Bible is a mid-size Bible. This is not a heavy volume, which is great for vacation time, camps, or even daily usage. On the outside you will find a bicolor Bible. The cover is made with quality materials. It combines blue and black colors with discrete tones. The hardcover material is leather like. Holy Bible and NLT words are engraved on the spine a looks very elegant.

On the inside you will find the already mentioned NLT on an 8.0 text size. This Bible includes an introduction to the NLT. The Bible text includes references, which is appreciated by every reader, including youths. This Bible not only includes a concordance but also a Dictionary/Concordance providing short definition of the term first, and then the passages where the term is mentioned or referenced. This Bible also provides seven full color maps at the end of it.

This Bible is flexible but not to the point of being excessively malleable, which is great in terms of manipulation. I fells strong and thanks to the materials used on the covert this Bible feels solid in the hands.

If you are considering buying a new Bible for your teenager son, this is a great choice. Even more, I would recommend this Bible to any man since colors are elegant and not strident. The price is very accessible and price-quality factor is one of the most competitive in the market.You can buy it here.

Girls Slimline Holy Bible

978-1-4143-9767-2Statistics say that  youths are more prone to leave their faith today more than ever before. Secularism and media influence them until the point of making them to have doubts regarding their faith. That is why I am grateful every time a Christian publisher puts in the market literature and material addressed to youths. Tyndale House Publishers has been doing so in recent years. Thank you.

One of the latest Bibles Tyndale has introduced into the Christian literature market is the Girls Slimline Holy Bible. The version used in this Bible is the well-known New Living Translation (NLT). I think that is a wise move to use this translation for a Bible addressed to girls and teenagers. The NLT version is ideal for daily reading, personal study and devotional, especially for young people who may find difficult navigating through the King James Version.

This Bible is a mid-size Bible. This is not a heavy volume, which is great for vacation time, camps, or even daily usage. The hardcover feels strong and well sewn. That helps to keep the Bible well closed so it does not open all the time while users carry it. It feels as well closed as a zipper system would do.

On the outside you will find a colored Bible that every girl will love. It combines blue, pink and neon colors on a velvet-like material. The edges of this bible are covered with a brilliant grey color made of strong rubber-plastic material that provides protection against bumps and falls.

On the inside you will find the already mentioned NLT on a 8.0 text size. This Bible includes and introduction to the NLT. The Bible text includes references, which is appreciated by every reader, including youths. This Bible not only includes a concordance but also a Dictionary/Concordance providing short definition of the term first and then the passages where the term is mentioned or referenced. This Bible also provides seven full color maps at the end of it.

When I held this Bible for the first time and noticed how the hardcover keeps the volume closed, I first thought it would not open easily making hard to read it. I was wrong. Even if you are reading in Genesis or Revelation, the rest of the book will remain steady and the Bible will not close by itself.

If you are considering buying a new Bible for your daughter or any girls you may think of, this is a great choice. The price is very accessible and price-quality factor is one of the most competitive in the market.
