A beautifully illustrated Bible combined with unique study features.
The NIV Radiant Virtues Bible is part of Zondervan’s A Beautiful Word Collection. In keeping with similar fashion of this collection (see my review of the NIV Beautiful Word Coloring Bible for Girls here), the Radiant Virtues Bible includes line-art verses ready to color in, as well as delightfully designed scripture art scattered throughout the text. As an added bonus, there are fourteen verse illustrations printed on heavier perforated pages suitable for gifting or personal inspiration.
In addition to inspiring scripture illustrations, this Bible contains unique study features. Prominently, a color-coded system concentrating on the three virtues of faith, hope and love, found in 1 Corinthians 13. Throughout the NIV text, verses relating to these three themes are color-code highlighted, coordinating with an included 52-week guide, taking the reader on a scriptural journey through the lens of faith, hope and love. Suggested activities for each week include a devotional, prayer, coloring art and a journaling prompt.
The “Go-Further Reading Plans” offer options in various time commitments such as 30 Days with Jesus, 30 Days of Great Faith, 60-Day Overview of the Bible, and a One Year Through the Bible reading plan. Along with reading plans and the 52-week guide, there are 12 months of blank calendar pages printed on heavier paper to help track reading progress. Wide margins for journaling, along with journaling prompts, easily encourage the use of this Bible as a companion throughout the year, and a keepsake for years to come.
Overall, I highly recommend this Bible.
