NARRATIV: A Bible Magazine Review
My journey with God the last year has been absolutely amazing. I have learned so much about myself, about others, history, scripture, and so much more that I can’t even begin to touch on in this blog post because it would turn into a legit book. But my journey with reading the bible was rocky up until the last couple months. I’ve been learning more about how to read it, what versions to read, how to interpret the passages, and how to apply them properly to my life. I have found though, that for most, it’s not very easy to read the bible and understand it entirely. If you find yourself in this category more often than not, look no further. I have the PERFECT thing, just for you. You can of course thank God for this one!
In their words: “Narrativ features passages from the Bible in magazine format. Each passage is preceded by a brief summary for context and the passages are complemented by images contributed from photographers all over the world. The images are intended to associate the things we see today with the living Word written many years ago.
Narrativ was created to be inclusive of all walks of faith. Whether you're new to Christianity, growing your faith, or have strayed away but know the Word is the foundation, we hope these pages will contribute to you growing closer to God.
The magazine's design ethos will always be that content precedes design. We believe that good design is obvious but great design is transparent. As the content of the magazine deals with the words from The Bible, what we believe to be the divine words of God, it is our primary goal to not take the reader away from the text.”
My Take On This Concept
I personally LOVE this magazine and the concept behind it for many reasons and they are as follows:
It’s God based. (duh)
The aesthetics are INCREDIBLE and right up my alley
It’s easy to read and not overwhelming
It feeds the creative hunger for those who can’t just sit and read an entire Bible, but want to learn parts of it in “Layman’s Terms”
It’s an amazing coffee table book & conversation starter
And is a collectors piece you don’t want to miss out on!
I highly suggest supporting this amazing creation. If you’re at all interested, head to their website and purchase ISSUE 1 now! Thank you NARRATIV for sending me this amazing gift and for creating such a modern take on an ancient knowledge. You are doing a great service for those who want to get their feet wet in Christianity, who want to add to their collection of Biblical finds, or just want to enjoy God’s word in the most stylish way possible. Can’t wait to see more!
