Heather Greenwood is comparing the ESV Interleaved Journalinng Bible with the ESV Single Column Journaling Bible

A couple months ago, I had pre-ordered the ESV Interleaved Journaling Bible as soon as I could. I was so excited about having the extra space to art worship on. Since I take my ESV Single Column Journaling Bible with me to church, I generally keep to the margins of the Bible, so having a whole page for an art journaling canvas made me super excited to splurge on this new Bible. I figured it was going to be bigger and heavier and when I posted a photo on my Instagram feed yesterday, you guys were really interested in seeing a side by side comparison. I’m so happy to share that with you.

The Interleaved Bible is taller. The Interleaved Journaling Bible measures 9.5 inches tall and the Single Column Journaling Bible measures 8.25 inches.

The Interleaved Bible is thicker… obviously, with the extra pages, that’s not a surprise. The Interleaved Journaling Bible measures 2 inches wide and the Single Column Journaling Bible measures 1.25 inches wide.

The Interleaved Bible has larger pages, both height and width. The Interleaved Journaling Bible measures 9-316 inches high and 6-38 inches wide. The Single Column Journaling Bible measures 8 inches high and 6 inches wide.

Also, because of the size difference, the Interleaved Bible weighs quite a bit more. The ESV Interleaved Journaling Bible weighs in at 3lbs, 12oz. The ESV Single Column Journaling Bible weighs 2lbs, 4oz.

Both the Bibles have the same paper throughout and the same font size. It’s still the super thin creamy Bible paper. The only difference is that the margin is lined in the Single Column Journaling Bible and is totally blank in the Interleaved Journaling Bible. Also, the whole inserted page is blank on both sides. I am most excited about this for bleed through reasons… this way if there is bleed through, I can cover it up with paint on the other side and not worry about covering any scripture.

I hope this helps with those who are undecided on whether or not you want to get the Interleaved Bible. I’m so excited to have it for so many reasons. For me personally, I think it will be staying at home and will only take it with me on rare occasions when someone wants to see it in person. I would love to bring it to church with me, but due to the size and weight, along with carrying the kids’ stuff and running around dropping them off and picking them up… even though I consider myself pretty fit, it would be quite the workout carrying it around everywhere… and not just church but Bible study and retreats and such. It’s such a treasure though, and I can’t wait to fill the pages with my style of illustrating my faith… painty and messy.

    Ours just came into the store today. This bible is beautiful and I’ll be taking one home. Yes it is heavy but I could see not prepping pages. The journaling bible I have now is the same leather wrap -single column. My kids will get these which is why I why I like the leather. So excited to do a first page in this one! It might have to be a “Created to Create” page!!!???

    I think the leather weighs a portion on its own. My single column wrap and my single column floral weigh considerably differently too.

    Honestly, taking in consideration the extra room you have, there isn’t too much in weight difference. Very unique!

    Hi IF,
    I was wondering…On the second photo, where did you get that adorable “Print. Pray. Repeat.”?
    Thanks, Sophia :)
