At first glance this Bible’s size and layout are pleasing to me. I like the way the devotions do not interrupt the flow of scripture, they lay out on their own page and are placed throughout, in an orderly manner, including a page prompt for the next devotional reading. The layout itself is uncluttered, straightforward and crisp. Black, white and grey are the color scheme within and two columns of a reasonably sized font are inviting to the readers eye.
All in all this Bible has a clean look which beckons for me to highlight freely as needed. Which reminds me of another important point, if you, like me, like to write in your Bible- the pages are not too thin that marking is a problem. Although I prefer colored pencils to prevent bleed through, I appreciate a somewhat thicker page for my markings, and the pages are good for me. I tend to be rough so durability anyway I can get it is helpful. I need my Bible to be able to take a licking and keep on…well you get the point! As for the devotions, they can be read topically or in order and are dated. I have looked over some of the content and look forward to reading them throughout the upcoming school year-knowing God will use them at just the right time. Although I chose the NIV, there is also a King James Version available.
I am still debating whether I want to start using this Bible for September at the start of our Homeschool year or wait for the new year, but either way this Bible would make a thoughtful gift to any Homeschool mom you are looking to encourage or bless. This would make a great Christmas Gift in my opinion-right in time for the new year.
