This Bible just arrived today. It is a beautiful black imitation leather, that looks, and feels like a soft calfskin cover. I am impressed with overall quality of this Bible. The paper is bright white, with dark, easy to read print.
The price is fantastic. This is just one of several A W Tozer Bibles I have purchased, and the quality of all of them has been exceptional.
May our LORD bless you in your study of His Wonderful WORD.
I really wanted to give 5 stars to this Bible but in the end I just could not. The content is definitely 5 stars and I have to give 5 stars to CBD for their fabulous support. It took 3 tries to get a Bible without major flaws in construction and printing. I finally got one that is satisfactory and considering the price its a bargain.
The flexisoft cover is nice; I like the duo-tone A. W. Tozer imprint. The binding is sewn and time will tell if that is good but it looks to be now and the bible lays flat in any section as well. This is my first thumb-indexed Bible and I love it even though I know where the books are located it makes finding them easier. The paper stock seems a bit thicker than I've been used to lately with little ghosting. Highliter bleed is still a bit noticeable but I use colored pencils anyway and they're fine. The concordance and cross-references are good and 8 nicely colored maps are included. I'm happy there is a nice listing of the works by Tozer that the excerpts were taken from at the back of the Bible.
One maker ribbon is included also. I liked the book introductions which are short and sweet giving only basic information which I prefer in a devotional Bible like this. I also like the chapter delineations in larger font and in red script. The pages are gold gilded and are holding up after several times through already. I hope the troubles I had are limited to a small number of these Bibles because I think every Christian out there would love his notes and everyone should have one. Product value and Expectations are high so the actual rating is closer to 4. Don't be afraid to give this Bible a chance. Hendrickson take NOTE!! and get the page creasing,overlapping and typesetting errors fixed.
