My review:

  Bible journaling seems to be something else women have cornered the market on, but it is something I have been interested in. I'd thought about buying a journaling Bible, but then feared I may not use it..... then this Bible came up for review and I jumped on it.

  First off, don't be put off by the large print claim. It is 10-pt font, which is not that big, and seems close to the size of the regular print books I read on a daily basis.

 The Bible comes in a slip case that is open on both ends. The Bible itself is hardcover/cloth cover with an attractive design.

 The version is the very familiar and loved New King James version..... not my first choice for a journaling Bible, but it is a version I like.

  The journaling part of it: The Bible has single columns with wide margins on each page. The margins are lined the whole way down with faint lines, but dark enough to be visible... ideal for people like me who can't write straight. There is plenty of space to write, doodle, put stickers, and whatever else can be done in Bible journaling.

  One thing I wish was included was ideas on how to journal in the Bible, but those can be found on-line, and Family Christian stores occasionally has in store classes on Bible jorunaling. The Bible was made for journaling, and Nelson did a great job on making it fill the idea.

The NKJV Journal The Word Bible is available from Thomas Nelson.
