The Jesus Bible – Book Review

If you’d like to learn more about Jesus, The Jesus Bible is the first Bible that focuses exclusively on helping readers encounter Jesus in every book of the Bible.

The Jesus Bible was created by the Passion Movement and features exclusive articles from some of the most trusted leaders in Christianity today: Louie Giglio, Max Lucado, John Piper, Ravi Zacharias and Randy Alcorn.

The grey, fabric hardcover Bible that I reviewed is suitable for gift-giving and filled with features that Bible students of all levels will appreciate:

  • Bible Introduction by Louie Giglio
  • 66 Book Introductions that Highlight Jesus in Every Book
  • 7 Essays on the Grand Narrative of Scripture
  • Over 300 Full-Page Articles and Nearly 700 Sidebar Articles that Reveal Jesus throughout Scripture
  • Single-Column Text of the New International Version (NIV) Translation
  • NIV Dictionary-Concordance
  • Ribbon marker

What I like most about The Jesus Bible is that it’s designed with plenty of room for note-taking, Bible journaling, and illustrating your faith!

One unusual feature in this Bible is that the font size for the study notes and articles are larger than the font of the Bible text itself. While I appreciated being able to read the supplemental material with ease, somehow it seemed wrong to have to pull out my reading glasses to see what the Word of God itself said! If you have trouble reading smaller fonts, you should be aware of this before you invest in this Bible.

Fonts aside, however, it’s hard to find a Study Bible that provides room for note-taking or Bible journaling. If you are looking for this unique combination, or are interested in learning more about our Savior, then The Jesus Bible is for you!

I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.

    I appreciate the review! It’s always interesting to me how many versions of the Bible there are! Happy Tuesday, from the Together on Tuesdays linkup!

  3. This reminds me of the Jesus Calling Bible we have for kids! I agree, I’m surprised the extra text is in a bigger font, too.
