Delivered: The Bible Beautiful - The Book of Romans
“Delivered:” is a series in which we look at crowdfunded ideas that have successfully shipped to their supporters. We dive into the final product, after its long journey from concept to fulfillment.
Sometimes in my Bible reading, the large blocks of small text can feel intimidating, and I often read a lot of the words without taking much in. The Bible Beautiful team seeks to help people get the most out of their Bible study by combining stunning photos with the beautiful words of the Book of Romans.
I particularly like the headings for each section that give me a little summary of what topic that section is covering. The section headings also serve as a good way to keep track of where you are. Instead of pages packed with small text that can feel intimidating, the way the verses are separated creates little, manageable chunks of scripture that help me to focus and meditate on each verse.
Each image was thoughtfully and carefully chosen to create a book that was aesthetically pleasing and calming while reading. The creators used gold as a motif throughout to represent belonging to God's family and the idea in Romans of being unified in Christ. Combing the text with these images helps me to pause and reflect on the words instead of just speeding through.
