The NIV, Beautiful Word Bible, Hardcover in hardcover is beautiful. It features 500 full-color scripture verses crafted into creatively eye catching and inspirational word art throughout. The art usually is layed out on the side of each page but some of the art spans over two pages. There is an blank space with pre-formatted lines that you can capture your own thoughts of what you are reading in word, art, etc. I like this space was included so that the Bible is used as a reminder and jumping point of to what the Lord was speaking to my heart at the given time.
This isn’t a study Bible but it can be used along with a devotional or to just read and jot down your notes and thoughts in a separate place. There’s no maps, Bible reading plans, verse by verse explanations, etc. You’ll however find a table of contents, alphabetical order list of the Books of the Bible, Letter from the Editor, Table of Weights and Measures, and an Index of Artists and Their Work.
I adore using this Bible during my quiet times spent with the Lord. The scripture art is fun to look at and it really sticks in my mind throughout the day. I love how something such as art can stand out so much to me. It tends to trigger a memory and keep me firmly reminded of God’s love and purpose for my life as I go along. I am currently reading through a certain book of the Bible and liking there’s an attached ribbon to keep my spot.
This is a beautiful Bible. It would make a lovely gift for women of any age. I highly recommend it! It comes in both hardcover and e-book versions.
