Book Review: Journible The 17:18 Series - Acts working with computers for over 20 years, I rarely pick up a pen or pencil. It is so much easier to type on a keyboard. I haven't seen a bottle of White Out in ages.

Along with the convenience comes a sadness. What happened to the days where I would sit with a pen, a highlighter, and my Bible and spend an evening studying? I haven't marked in my Bible in ages - I now use a tablet.

That is where Journible comes in. Journible: The 17:18 Series is basically a hard bound book set up to allow the reader, or in this case the writer, to scribe a whole book of the Bible. On one side, the page is ruled along with a number for each verse in a chapter. On the other side, there are questions for deeper reflection on the text. The construction of the book is very good. Reformation Heritage has done a great job in spacing the verses so that you do not run out of space or have a lot of extra space between verses.

This reminds me of pictures I saw of Jonathan Edwards personal Bible. Edwards cut a printed Bible apart and placed sheets of paper between each page so he would have a place for notes. In this case, Journible is even better. Not only do you have space to place notes, but writing the scripture helps understanding and memory.

I loved this book and look forward in the future to work on other books of the Bible. I found myself thinking as I write a chapter, "maybe one more page before I take a break." It is a must buy for anyone who wants to learn or memorize the word. It would be great to have a whole collection of 66 books. What would it be like to have written the whole Bible by hand? Sounds like a great project.

Thank you, Reformation Heritage, for such a great idea!

I highly recommend it and give it 5 out of 5 stars.

I received this book, free of charge, from Reformation Heritage Books and Cross Focused Reviews in exchange for an honest review.
