    I really wish there was a bible like this available in the current NIV translation! I’ve searched and searched but can’t find any with margins this wide. The note-taker’s bible just can’t compare when it comes to journaling space. I’m sure if I give it some time, someone will come out with one like this in more translations. Thanks for all your reviews and photos! They’re so helpful!
