This vibrant journalling Bible not only provides readers with extra-wide blank margins for journalling, but also includes 48 pages of illustrations from Thea Muir, author of I Am So Many Things. Each charming image is accompanied by an ‘I am’ statement derived from Bible truths that Thea repeated to herself in the mirror while she recovered from an eating disorder. The devotional pages propose activities and challenges to help the reader recognise their identity in God’s eyes.
Readers are invited to meditate on the images and declarations such as, ‘I am outrageously loved’, ‘I am fearfully and wonderfully made’, or ‘I am a child of God’ and journal their response to each one in the wealth of space provided for creativity.
This NIV Bible has 9PT British Text, presented in a clear, easy-to-read, double-column layout.
Wow. Just wow. I love this bible. From the bright yellow cover, which I find alluring, to the very last illustrations on the inside of the back cover, this bible is incredible. The image on the front says, ‘I am so many things’, and this is backed up by scripture verses. These ‘I am’ statements and images are liberally scattered throughout the pages with relevant bible verses underneath them. The affirmations in the I am statements are powerful allowing the reader to see themselves as God sees them. They are brought to life by Thea Muir in her simple, yet effective, illustrations. Affirmations such as these are what are so often missing in our modern lives, so a timely and necessary read. This is so much more than a Bible, it is a journalling bible where you can write in the extra wide margins. This can be about the text itself or about the I am images and affirmations. There are also several pages where the reader is encouraged to complete exercises to make them think more deeply about the text and the affirmation. In fact, this whole Bible is designed to be read, believed, internalised, written in and interacted with. It is both a bible and a devotional. Whilst this is squarely aimed at young girls and teens, I believe that many adults would gain a lot from it as well. I am an adult and I absolutely loved it from the get go. I cannot recommend this bible highly enough and if I could give it more than 5 stars I would in a heartbeat. It is worth every penny.
