I believe a good study Bible in a solid translation can make all the difference in your daily devotion time. It’s important to choose them carefully to make sure that the extra notes publishing companies include are theologically accurate. Sadly, many Christian teens don’t realize the importance of translation and version, so we pick up whatever looks good at the bookstore. But finding a truly good Bible requires research and a bit of digging. This topic is definitely something teenagers should read up on!
So, because I like the ESV (English Standard Version), I was excited when I had the opportunity to review this Bible! Not only do I think (from my own limited research) that the ESV is a great and easy-to-understand translation, the illustrations by renowned artist Dana Tanamachi are absolutely stunning and bring a lot of life to reading the Scripture.
I have enjoyed so far flipping through, but I can’t wait to fill in some of the illustrations with my own watercolor and notes as the years go on. This is the type of Bible that’s a perfect gift for Christmas!
Seriously though, using this for reading right before bed is so relaxing. The illustrations are breath-taking, and the amazing thing is it only amplifies the already breathtaking beauty of God’s word. I highly recommend the ESV Illuminated Bible.
That being said, I am excited to say that I am giving away an ESV Illuminated Bible to one of you! Just click this Rafflecopter link and complete each entry task! The giveaway runs from November 26, 2017 to December 1, 2017.
