This one, with it’s amazing artwork and beautiful cover would be perfect for a coffee table or wherever else you want God’s Word to decorate your home….as long as you’re going to read it, as well. So many just have them collecting dust, and that’s not the best thing. I’ll never forget a friend of ours telling us that “a bible that’s falling apart, belongs to someone whose life is not!” Isn’t that the truth? The more you study, the more you apply God’s Word to your life, the better off you’ll be. Why not use something that looks gorgeous, while you’re doing it!
This would be the perfect gift for a friend, or family member. I’d be a little questionable about even putting this one in a case, or my bible carrier. I wouldn’t want to hide the beautiful artwork on the cover. Even seeing it on the pages really leaves a mark on whatever part you are reading. I had to look up my favorite verse…Joshua 24:15b…and here’s what I saw (I love it!):
Let me know what you think of this, and who you might give one to. I’m having a giveaway for one copy below and would love to have you enter, and share this with your friends and/or family! Have an illuminated day!!
