HCSB Illustrator’s Notetaking Bible – Book Review
If you are a creative Christian who loves to interact with the Word of God by writing, drawing, journaling and coloring in your Bible, then I have a special treat for you!
The B&H Publishing Group has just released the HCSB Illustrator’s Notetaking Bible – a unique Bible that combines the text of the popular Holman Christian Standard Bible translation in a convenient, single-column format with two of the hottest trends in the crafting world: Bible journaling and adult coloring!
The HCSB Illustrator’s Notetaking Bible comes in your choice of two bindings: a deep rich purple linen binding and the classic and richly colored leather binding, which is shown above.
What I love most about this Bible is that it easily allows those of us who might love the look of Bible Journaling but might not feel so artistically inclined to easily incorporate the trend into our Bibles by beautifully coloring the 600+ filigree illustrations, Scripture quotes and drawings that other talented artists have rendered throughout the Bible, while providing plenty of room for our own notes, doodle and renderings as well!
I also like the fact that the lines and drawings are drawn in a subtle gray, which is soft enough to see without being obtrusive during one’s reading of the Word.
The pages lie flat when you open and work in the Bible without breaking the spine so the Illustrator’s Notetaking Bible is a joy to write and color in. The book is the perfect size for holding without being too heavy – it fits comfortably in one’s hand.
The only drawback to this Bible – as with the HCSB Notetaking Bible – is that the print is extremely small. If your vision is good, then this will probably not be an issue for you, but if you have trouble reading tiny print, then you will have trouble reading the font in this Bible.
Small font aside, if you are looking for a Bible to help you creatively express what you are learning as you read God’s Word, or if you are looking for the perfect gift for a creative friend, The Illustrator’s Notetaking Bible is sure to brighten your day!
I rate this Bible 4 out of 5 stars.
