Is the Bible with Creeds and Confessions the right Bible for you? Let’s look at the pictures and features and see!
Crossway sent me this Bible with Creeds and Confessions to review. It is a standard ESV Bible with Creeds at the end of the Bible. I received the imitation leather version, which looks really nice. I was honestly surprised at how nice the cover is, because I’m usually not a fan of imitation leather. It also comes in a hardback imitation leather cover and a goatskin leather version.
I don’t think the pictures do it justice. It feels really nice in the hand. It also has 2 ribbon markers. You know me, the more ribbon markers– the better! And 2 ribbons is halfway to my ideal of 4 ribbon markers. I should also mention it comes with Crossway’s lifetime warranty!
The actual Scripture is very easy to read. Double columns with 10 point font and references throughout. It is very readable.
Bible with Creeds and Confessions Extra Features
Is this the Bible for you?
The selling point of this Bible is the Creeds and Confessions. However, it just falls a bit short– especially if you aren’t Reformed. A Reformed homeschool mom would probably LOVE this Bible. I am not Reformed. So I don’t. I like the Scripture part. The feel of the Bible is extraordinary. I love the readability. However, the Creeds and Confessions portion is just… lack luster.
I really thought there would be more statements and parts of the Creeds woven into the Scripture in the form of notes. But it is just a collection placed in the back of the Bible.
Who knows, this Bible might be EXACTLY what you’re looking for. If you’re Wesley Armenian… it probably is not.
The quality is outstanding. I really can’t say that enough. The readability and references in the Bible portion of this Bible are amazing! I’m just not Reformed, so I don’t care to have so much focus on Reformed confessions and catechism.
This Bible was sent to me free for review. I am not obligated to review it favorably or say anything specific about it, other than my own thoughts. Links in this post may be affiliate links, which do help me out.
