Book Review :: Inspire Bible, NLT (with video flip-through)

It's Bible week on my blog!
Stay tuned this week as I review a variety of Bibles.
The Inspire Bible (New Living Translation) is a unique Bible that is fantastic for those who love to be creative in their worship and study times.
There are a lot of journaling Bible options out there, but one of the things that makes the Inspire Bible so unique is that it not only offers room for journaling and Bible art, but it is also like a built in coloring book. 
With over 400 illustrations throughout the Inspire Bible, there is a lot of art, but there is still plenty of room to do art & journaling of your own.
The Inspire Bible measures 1 3/4" thick, and the pages edges are beautifully decorated. (The hard cover Inspire Bible has the page edges decorated with colorful flowers and butterflies, while the flexible cover version of the Inspire Bible has a two-tone design.)
The pages of the Inspire Bible are 7 7/8" tall and have a 2" margin. The margin either has lines for journaling or some sort of line art for coloring...or a combination of both. In places where the Scripture text may not go the full length (such as in the Psalms), the blank margin area will be bigger, but the lines will remain approximately 1 5/8" long.
I could go on and on with pictures - but it really is easiest to just watch this quick (less than a minute) video to see the variety in the size and style of the art throughout the Inspire Bible:

After I received the Inspire Bible, my daughter loved it so much that she saved up to buy one for herself. And now that the large print Inspire Bible is on the way, there is an option for everyone!

Happy reading! (And coloring!)
