My Review

The ESV Illuminated Bible is easily one of the most gorgeous Bibles I have ever seen. This Bible uses a ton of gold ink and looks and feels just like a Bible that has been passed down from generation to generation. Turning through the pages, there are so many things I love about it like, all the room there is to write in the margins and the easy-to-read lettering.

One thing I especially love about this Bible is its beautiful artwork that is found throughout the Bible. ESV-Illuminated-Bible-Review-GIveaway The ESV Illuminated Bible is not a Bible that you’re going to want to take to church, but it is one that you will want to feature inside your house. Complete with a permanent slipcase and smith-sewn binding, this Bible is one you can share with future generations to come.

If you would like to purchase the ESV Illuminated Bible, you can by going to this LINK.

Love your reviews! This looks amazing!
You mentioned that it is more of a family Bible and less of a personal, carry around/daily use Bible. Is that due to the size? How does it compare to say the regular Journaling Bible? I currently have the Reader’s Bible which I love, but I need something with verse numbers for school. Thanks!

I would consider the ESV Illuminated Bible more of a family Bible because it uses a ton of gold ink, it’s big and bulky, and it looks a lot fancier than your average Bible. As far as using this Bible at school, the pages do offer more room for journaling, but a lot of pages also have artwork on the sides, so you can’t take notes on them pages. Hope that helps, good luck finding your perfect Bible!
