Inspire Catholic Bible NLT

The Inspire Catholic Bible NLT is a beautifully bound hardcover version of the New Living Translation, featuring, black and white vintage styled art and graphics.  The satin finish pink hardcover is beautiful yet sturdy enough to last for home devotional use and for carrying around.  The interior features beautifully drawn bible verses scattered through out as well as subtle lines to allow for writing  in the margins.  Personally I found the vintage styled art beautiful in black and white, although the art is meant to be colored using colored pencils or markers.  The journal space allows plenty of room for notes or additional artistic expression.  The lines are subtle enough that they may be left blank for those who choose not to personalize this bible with art or writing noted.  Either way whether you choose to personalize the bible by coloring the art, and adding noted, or simply appreciating this bible as is, you will not be disappointing by the beauty of this bible.  This bible is a Catholic edition in that it includes additional apocryphal books of the bible not originally considered inspired but instead are of historical significance to the early development of the catholic church.  If the inclusion of these additional books offends you, then you might not be pleased with this Catholic version of the Inspire NLT bible.  Otherwise, this bible is appropriate for all denominations to read, and not exclusive to the Catholic church.  As a blogger for Tyndale I received a copy of this bible for the purpose of writing this review.
