Learn the Art of Journaling in Your Bible

A Bible Ideal for More Extended Journaling

The Word of God is a deep mine—filled to the brim with poetry, history, and stories of faithful men and women. The Psalms cry out with praise and lament. The Proverbs dispense wisdom. The Epistles dole out guidance for the church worldwide. The truths of Scripture are rich and profound, and their understanding requires the full engagement of our hearts and minds.

To help readers explore and meditate on the text, the ESV Journaling Bible, Interleaved Edition offers full blank pages beside each page of biblical text to facilitate more extensive journaling. Mirroring the Bible that Jonathan Edwards—18th-century pastor and theologian—used to record personal notes, the blank space is ideal for journaling insights, prayers, sermons, or artwork.

Thick cream-colored paper provides a sturdy surface for writing and creating, and a sturdy smyth-sewn binding ensures the edition will last for many years of use.

This month, Crossway introduces two new covers of the edition.
