Crossway sent me this unique Bible to review. I have to say, this Bible is very aesthetically pleasing to me. It is a cloth cover with a look and feel like a church hymnal. It only has one bookmark ribbon. But it looks and feels very pleasant.
I really enjoy the artwork on the half sleeve and inside this Bible. The sketched portraits are a nice touch.
You have this introduction about the Bible and prayers. It includes information about praying through Scripture, which I think is a helpful addition.
Each book begins with a small introduction. The format is single-column and very easy to read. It also has footnotes.
Within the text, there are small prayers tucked throughout.
In the back of the Bible, you’ll find an author index where prayers are listed by author.
Then there is also a list of prayers by when they are placed through the Bible. As a Wesleyan, I did notice there were far more Calvin prayers than Wesley prayers. But John Wesley is at least represented.
There is also a reading plan in the back with an Old Testament, New Testament, and Psalm reading for each day of the year. (Except you get a day off on Leap Day every fourth year.)
Overall, this is a really unique Bible and very good resource. I’m not sure how much I would like this as my only Bible. But it does have footnotes and a concordance for study purposes, so it could be a study Bible. For homeschoolers, it would also make a lovely Morning Time Bible, since you could read Scripture and prayers from it to start off your day. Really, it’d be unique for anyone for that purpose.
