Reminiscent of the beautiful family Bibles of generations past, this 8 1/4 X 10 3/4 inch heirloom edition of the New Testament showcases the timeless paintings of Carl Heinrich Bloch. This edition features gilded edges, an embossed cover, raised hubs on the spine, and a satin ribbon marker. It comes packaged in an attractive gift box and features a special family history section to record such important events such as births, blessings, and baptisms. More than forty full-color paintings by master artist Carl Heinrich Bloch are presented in this volume, including Bloch's altar pieces, which he considered to be his finest work. This one-of-a-kind New Testament is destined to become a family keepsake for generations to come.
Wonderful book of scripture. It's a great source for reading scriptures with young children and the art work is wonderful! I don't see anything wrong or out of context with the women in the painting on page 9 although another reviewer says to look at it before buying.
I want to warn people to look at page 9 (of lady leaning forward) before buying. Please do. I am devastated that an lds book store sales this. Zero stars.
It is easy with a paper back version of the scriptures to treat them casually. However the cover of leather and beautiful pictures inspire a bit more reverence when we read from it on Sunday.
I bought the Heirloom Book of Mormon and was impressed with it, so I decided to get the New Testament. It is very nice, so I ordered another for my Son's family. I was disappointed when I saw the Made in China on the inside page. I just thought that you all made your own books.
One would hope for an Heirloom Edition which included both the Old and New. However it was probably hard to produce such an edition since the Old is much longer. Carl Heinrich Bloch's drawings are wonderful and the editorial decision to "zoom in" on certain details in some of his renderings on some pages was very appropriate, in my opinion. The size of the font is very easy to read, the page quality is wonderful and so is the carved design on the front and back covers.
