Christmas is the perfect time to gift a loved one a special Bible, and the Illuminated Bible would be a fantastic choice! This ESV translation Bible is simply stunning featuring a dark navy, hardback cover with gold embossing details. The inside features easy to read text font in gold lettering, with stunning artwork throughout. There's also ample space for your own artwork or notes.
The Bible is easy to read and understand, and as far as I have been able to tell all verses match correctly with the KJV. We are strictly a KJV family, but I have been reading this one with no complaints at all so far.
I love the beautiful artwork. Each hand lettered page is elegantly created, and lovely to look at. I find myself reading even more because of the repeated verse on the page.
The Illuminated Bible is not only a wonderful Bible to own, but it is a lovely addition to our home. I have received many compliments on its overall look, but as we all know-That's not what is important. What is inside is truly what matters, and I have found nothing to dissuade us from using this Bible in our homeschool and Bible studies. I will be sure to let you know if I do find anything, but so far so good!
