Before we get to the super-awesome giveaway, let me tell you about my new Crossway ESV Journaling Bible.
When my Bible came in the mail, I think I squealed a little. The Bible was in a pretty box that matches the cover of the beautiful Bible on the inside.
The Journaling Bible measures 6.5 inches x 7.5 inches. It's lightweight and a nice compact size for those of us who like to carry our Bibles around with us to church or Bible journaling nights. The cover is described as "cloth over board," and it features a pattern called "Blue Flora." The cover almost has a velvety feel, so I just love rubbing my hands over it.
The inside of the Journaling Bible features black letter text on cream-colored paper. The scriptures are in a double-column, paragraph format, and there are 2" ruled margins on the pages that are perfect for journaling notes, reflections, prayers, praise, etc. It should be noted that, like many journaling Bibles, the type size is 7, which may be too small for those with aging eyes. Also, there's a One-Year Bible Reading Plan at the back of the Bible, and each Bible book has an introduction and section heading.
The Bible is truly lovely, and I'm so excited that I get to give one away!
The giveaway is for one Crossway ESV Journaling Bible and is open to residents of the US and Canada until 12am November 19, 2015. The winner will be notified by email and will have 24 hours to respond to the email to claim the prize. (Full giveaway rules can be found later in the post.)
