Joe has been pestering me with multiple emails, insisting I get an ESV Journaling Bible. Now he's gone public with his love for it in his new post, "How I'm Using the ESV Journaling Bible." I'm ordering this one today. Here's a few words on how he uses the lined, wide margins...
1. Summation, Connection, and Implication.
I often write out a summation of certain truths, arguments, or passages that make things clear for me.
2. Cross references.
Some people won’t like that the ESV Journaling Bible doesn’t have cross refernces, but I like that I get to add my own.
I’m even throwing helpful quotes from other writers/theologians when helpful to me or those I may wind up teaching.
