The excitement of my first review fills me with joy.
Just the invitation alone to receive FREE merchandise from Bible Gateway is such an honor and a privilege, and I just want to thank them for this opportunity to review the Artisan Collection Bible.
Please enjoy my little Parody of this upcoming Artisan Collection Bible Review.
From the moment I received the box on my doorstep, a rush of regret rushes through my body as I become nervous that I wouldn't do this review justice. I also thought to myself "how honest am I allowed to be", but after much prayer and meditation, I realize sincere honesty truly goes a long way.
Proverbs 19:1 Better to be poor and honest than to be dishonest and a fool.
2 Corinthians 8:21 We are careful to be honorable before the Lord, but we also want everyone else to see that we are honorable.
Proverbs 11:13 A gossip goes around telling secrets, but those who are trustworthy can keep a confidence.
As I opened the box, this beautiful pink marble Bible embedded with Gold inlays all over sparkled as I held it in my hand. The writing on the cover and the side of the Bible are in Gold which is illuminating off the Bible. This incredible artwork is done by Olivia Joy
The texture of the Bible feels so soft on the hands as its a fabric material. However, it does capture lint easy, and the corners look like they could get worn down easily with constant use.
Before I opened the Bible, I take notice of the Gold trim of the paper, but once opened; it has this beautiful purple trim. It's completely remarkable how the page trim changes colors.
As I start flipping through the pages, I began looking for my favorite part of the Bible, which is the interaction most Bibles give you. Whether its commentary, or a built-in devotional, or a study plan, but sadly this Bible doesn't have any.
This is My Bible by Tyndale NLT "Thrive" which I got from @legacyoflove creations (Instagram link below). My bible is slightly larger probably due to the commentary and built-in devotional. Mine also has the journaling section.
However, the Artisan Collection Bible is amazing if you love to write and draw. This beautiful Bible has lines for journaling on the side of the verses, and some extra open room for drawing as well as a few note pages at the end of the Bible.
When Bible Gateway explained the rules of the review one of their suggestions was to draw in the Bible which I am not a huge fan of, because I feel that it covers up the Lord's word and I like to reflect on his word constantly.
However, I looked up some Bible Journaling Drawing on Instagram and Google and notices most drawings can easily be placed in the note section of the journaling area, so I took a shot at drawing which I am not good at (Pics Below)
Don't laugh lol :P
So what did you think? Not to bad for my first time. I started tossing around the colored pencils like they were pickup sticks...lol
I was actually impressed with Proverbs 3:5-6 which is my personal life-changing verse.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
Although this Bible is quite lovely, it's a little pricy for me as it does not have commentary, or a built-in devotional, or a study plan built into it.
