Oh, friends! I’m so delighted to bring you this beautiful Bible!
The Abide Bible is lovely inside and out.
Of course, we know the Word of God is lovely in itself alone.
But I, for one, am grateful for all the Bibles and features available to us.
We live in an amazing time!
I have friends, real-life friends, I’ve traveled places, been in groups, have a collection of Bibles on my shelf, review books, helped on launch teams for books,
~ all things that absolutely would not
have happened or been made available to me thirty years ago.
Back to the Bible!
Here are features I love about it ~
- Journal Prompts
- Two ribbon book markers
- Picture It sections
- Engage through art with a variety of artwork included
- Praying Scripture prompts
- Contemplate Markers
- NET version
It’s a lovely Bible for artists and contemplatives and creators and thinkers. It’s a lovely Bible for anyone, but these are the people I thought of right away as I slowly paged through The Abide Bible.

Here’s a bit about it from the publisher ~
“Created in partnership with Bible Gateway and the Taylor University Center for
Scripture Engagement, The Abide Bible’s features include articles, book introductions, and practical Scripture engagement prompts based on five ways of engaging
deeply with the Bible:
• Praying Scripture: Pattern your prayers after biblical texts, personalizing the
prayer and gaining language for the thoughts and emotions you want to express.
• Picture It: Place yourself in a biblical narrative as a bystander or participant in
• Journaling: Focus and reflect on Scripture and its meaning for your life, opening yourself to God’s voice as you ponder.
• Engage Through Art: Consider a classic piece of art—photograph, sculpture,
painting—and let it deepen your meditations on scriptural truths.
• Contemplate: Follow the church’s longstanding practice of reading, meditating
on, praying, and contemplating a passage of Scripture in order to experience
God’s presence through the words of the Bible.
• Features include:
• Bible book introductions provide a concise overview of the background
and historical context of the book about to be read
• 365 Day Bible Reading Plan guiding you through the entire Bible in a year
• Line-matched, single-column Scripture text for improved readability
• Smyth-sewn binding lays flat in your hand or on your desk
