Beautiful & Fun Bible but pages are thin
I've had many bibles over the years but none ever stuck around for long because either it was paperback or I couldn't understand the translation. I really wanted a bible that would be my permanent bible that I could keep for years and highlight, write, etc in. This bible is it! I love that is a hardcover bible and it had an 1 inch margin that you can write notes in. The front cover of the bible is a design of Proverbs 3:5-6 I personally like it but if you want the look of a more traditional bible you won't like it.

PROS: hardcover & sturdy, nice journaling space on the side to write quick notes, adds more to the reading experience with featured drawings of verses, one column text meaning it's not too much on one page and the font is big enough to read without hurting your eyes. It also comes with a cute satin bookmark that is attached to it so you can keep your place!

CONS: there is only one con (hence only one start deducted) I have is the pages are still thin like every other bible. So be careful because yes they will/may rip if you're turning too fast. Yes markers and highlighters will bleed through. I used a special non-bleed through bible highlighter and it still showed through.

Swoon! Most stunning bible I've ever seen!
Stunning bible! I waited months for it to be fulfilled and I'd wait longer if I had to. I love the feel of the textured cover, the colors are perfectly muted and Iam so excited to explore every book's beautiful illustrations. Note the tabs were purchased separately off Etsy but match perfectly.

Beautiful Bible
I purchased this NIV Bible through a recommendation that this version was easier to understand. I was brought up Catholic, but I am in no way a devout follower. Lately I have wanted to read the Bible in its entirety to better understand Christianity and it’s basis so that I may strengthen my faith. I can honestly say that this is the most beautiful Bible I have ever held. The drawings are lovely and inspiring, and the translation is stunningly fluid. I appreciate the space to write, and the thinness of the pages doesn’t bother me. Although it’s not “Catholic approved”, I have no problem reading this Bible if it makes me want to learn and grow. I just started and already I don’t want to put it down. It reads like a favorite story. Thank you.

The cover is beautiful, but....
The cover is beautiful, the illustrations are beautiful but I would never recommend this Bible to anyone or buy again. The beauty of the cover and illustrations aren’t enough for me...

Now let me explain the Cons of this Bible. The print is so small and I am 24 years old with 20/20 vision. But what bothers me the most is the fact that when the text is referring to Jesus, “He” or “Him” is not capitalized at all, as you can see from the picture I took of Revelation 1:7.

I would be returning this if I didn’t write my name in it already.

When referring to Jesus as Him it should always be capitalized, that is a huge deal breaker for me.

I was very disappointed with this Bible
I was very disappointed with this Bible. The cover and pictures inside are beautiful like its name, but the print size is way too small to read.

Do yourself a favor and get it!
I love everything about this bible! It's been motivating me to memorize my verses and it's super cute! The font is pretty small but it works for me! Honestly wish they had a soft cover but the hard cover works just as well! Hopefully this can bless you in the way it has me! I am currently reading through the entire bible again and it's going fabulously!

Print is Too Small!
Print was soooo tiny. I had to send it back. Even my 26 year old eyes couldn't handle that print.

Not what I hoped...
This Bible is frustrating for me because I really wanted to love it. The font is very small. If you want this for journaling or being able to write notes in, know the art is on a lot of the pages, the art is pretty but since the pages are thin you can see it through the page. Mine also arrived damaged but Amazon was great at fixing that issue quickly for me.

quality not good
I am not impressed with the quality of this bible, and there is very little room to journal. The print is too small.

Best purchase.
love It. Got it bless by the father on Sunday . The pages are very delicate like any bible is and it’s definitely a hard cover

Very beautiful bible and easy to read!

The Holy Bible is so cute and I love things geared towards women, the colors in the Bible are vibrant and like most reviewers said the font is small, but the Bible is so cute I could look pass it .

Beautiful study Bible
This lives up to the title! I love the different artistic verses, they are so beautiful. Some of them are in the margins and some are full page. I bought this to be my study Bible. The margins work well for me to take notes, just be careful not to press your pen too hard. I haven't had any issue with bleeding using Bible highlighters. I did buy Bible book tabs which make it easier to navigate between books quickly. The cover is nice, it feels like canvas. Just a note that this is not a large print version. I hope to have this Bible for years to come.

Stunning Bible!
I would highly recommend this Bible to those in your life that enjoy "pretty" things. The illustrations are perfect, the text is easy to read and easy to comprehend. I cannot recommend this enough. I purchased this in hopes that my New Year's Resolution to read my Bible would be more obtainable since my prior KJV was difficult to read. Well this has exceeded those expectations. The front is a linen material and I love the details throughout. You will not regret this purchase.

Sent the wrong bible back by mistake!
Did not like the NIIV version of this bible. I had the NKJV version and sent it back by mistake! Was supposed to be a gift!

Looks can be deceiving
It is a very pretty bible, but I thought I was buying a bible to color myself like the pictures showed there would be pages for me to color myself, very disapointed

Tiny print even for 20 20 vision
Very small print ...sent item back next day and still haven’t received my refund.

One Star
Wrong color. The left is the color I thought I was getting. Right is what I actually got.

Unhappy with this purchase
Printing is way too small, pages are very thin. Not a good purchase.

March 31, 2018

Too much distraction in the margins.
So much color, flowers, shapes,etc in the margins it would have made for very distracting reading to the text. I sent it back.

Was not “new”
I bought this Bible for my sister-in-law. The description said that it would be new but it unfortunately wasn’t. There were markings on the slip cover and obvious wear on the edges and binding.

I personally own a copy of the same Bible and love it, so that’s why I gave 2 stars instead of 1 for sending one that is used when it is listed as “new”.

Pretty but not worth the price for quality.
Very pretty bible, but the pages seemed as thin if not thinner than tissue paper. It would crinkle by merely turning a page. I understand that bible pages can be thin due to the length of writing, but this was just way too fragile for me personally, especially as a mother of 8. I ended up returning the product and purchasing a different bible that was beautiful but had slightly thicker pages.

Too many illustrations if you want to journal or illustrate yourself
I really wanted to like this Bible. It’s just not quite what I was looking for.

- hard cover protects the Bible and makes it easier to carry
- the cover illustration is lovely

- pages are super thin; if you’re writing or illustrating it will show through
- so many illustrations. Great if you want them for inspiration, but if you’re wanting to journal or illustrate yourself you will be disappointed. I knew there were some, but it’s too prolific for me. I’ve wanted to take notes or illustrate many times only to find the pages already filled
- wide variety in illustrations means there are styles I don’t like. For a person who is very visual, it’s a bummer when a verse or passage is inspirational but the illustrations are not pleasing
- picky pants, I realize - but when both sides of a spread are illustrated and they don’t relate it makes me want to stop reading 😕

Very tiny print, pretty Bible.
The print was so tiny I couldn’t have possibly read much. Sent to a family member. It’s a very pretty Bible yet again the print was way too tiny. Disappointed.
