Tyndale NLT Inspire Bible Review


There are many journaling Bibles available today, and many of them have beautiful designs. The Tyndale NLT Inspire Bible was my first journaling Bible, mainly because it was in the NLT version as well as some of the key features of the Bible. This Bible is perfect for any beginners starting out with Bible journaling as well experienced creatives.

There is an entire range of journaling Bibles by Tyndale written in the New Living Translation. The Tyndale NLT Inspire Bible is a hardcover Bible with an aquamarine blue outside cover. The fore edge of the Bible has beautiful color paintings of butterflies, birds and flowers. The painting matches the aquamarine blue color of the covers.

The Bible comes with a blue-ribbon page marker and elastic band closure that matches that also matches the aquamarine color of the Bible.


The Bible has more than 400 illustrations throughout the new and old testaments. The illustrations are a combination of Bible verses as well as beautifully designed encouraging wording aligned to the Bible. There are words like faith, love, joy and hope.

The beginning of every book in the Bible has a banner as well as an illustration. One of the things I love about the Bible illustrations is the uniqueness. There are various fonts and the illustrations follow a mostly natural theme as there are pictures of flowers, birds and waterfalls.

Most of the illustrations are on the side margins of the pages. There are also a number of full page and half page illustrations throughout the Bible.


One area of improvement for future versions of their Bibles would be to try and space out the illustrations in the new testament a little bit more. When the illustrations are back to back it makes it difficult to color in both back to back illustrations as you can see the coloring on the page behind it.

There is ample line spacing on the pages throughout the Bible for note taking and any additional drawing or coloring you would like to do.


Here are the key features of the Bible:

  • NLT Bible with deluxe hardcover with a lovely, aquamarine LeatherLike over board, with beautifully-designed full-color page edges, a matching ribbon, and an elastic band closure.
  • Over 400 full- and partial-page Scripture illustrations to color.
  • 8.65-point font and high-quality cream Bible paper.
  • Many pages have open space in the lightly-ruled 2″” margins for creativity to blossom.
  • A great way to discover valuable truths from the Scripture to live out in your own life!
  • Trim measures:6.125 x 7.875 in



They have included an index of designed scripture verses at the back of the Bible which is very useful if you are looking for specific scriptures to color in.




The Tyndale NLT Inspire Bible is the perfect Bible for building a closer relationship with God. The illustrations make the Bible come alive and enable you to experience scripture in a visual way. The Tyndale NLT Inspire Bible will make the perfect gift for family members, friends, neighbors and work colleagues.

Its an amazing way to encourage a loved one to read the Bible and experience a connection with God.
