My Rating: 4 1/2 ☆

My Review: I received a copy of his Bible in exchange for an honest review.
I have to say, I absolutely love his Journaling Bible. As a Bible Journaller, I don't draw. I can't draw a stick figure good enough to save my cat's stick figures look more realistic than mine! I am much more a writer than I am artist, and the faint lines help make  sure I am not writing at a slowly decreasing 10 degree angle. Yes, there are lines, but it helps me more than hinders me. I can't say that will be the same for visual artists. 
However, that being said, I love the beautiful pinkish floral cloth over paperboard. It is by far, my favorite cover, hour I can't see it holding up very well under spilled coffee, rain, or any other precipitation. This seems to be a strictly indoors, keep it away from food, type Bible.

As you can see in the pictures, there is ghosting. I was using an ultrafine black gel pen when writing. I am not sure how that may detract in the future from my usage.
