This Bible is a no-frills Bible. There are no study notes. There is no concordance. However, there are wide two-inch margins that are perfect for journaling. The pages are thick enough without worry about bleed through with colored pencils and pens. The cover is a beautiful pink and orange floral. The marketing materials on this Bible say that it is for girls, implying it is for children and teens to journal with, but there is nothing girlish about the Bible. This would be an excellent Bible for a young woman or teenager, but it would also make an excellent Bible for an adult to use for Bible journaling.
This Bible designed to encourage the reader to journal thoughts and notes along the sides of each page in spacious lined margins. With the increased popularity of Bible journaling, the NIV Holy Bible for Girls is the perfect starting place for those just getting beginning this special spiritual discipline. Girls of all ages will enjoy this pretty Bible, but most especially ages 8-18. The New International Version (NIV) of the Holy Bible is easy to read and understand and will allow readers to grasp the concept of God’s Holy Word.

I recommend this bible especially for who like to journal and those who would like to start. There is nothing juvenile or little girl about this wonderful journaling Bible. It is a hardcover with an elastic closure. A good bible to read and study God’s word.
I received a copy of bible from Handlebar Publishing and Zondervan for my review.
