There are better parallel bibles out there........

I clicked that I would recommend this bible to a friend. HOWEVER, the endorsement is lukewarm, as there are better parallel bilingual bibles available, especially for the "parallel" aspect of the books. This bible starts each chapter/story in line with each other, but halfway through the chapter the differences in languages become out of synch. You can tell this from the first chapter of Genesis onwards. This problem could have been prevented by the publisher, but I guess they decided a "parallel" bible shouldn't be "parallel". Crossways' RVR60-ESV bible is better at this "parallel" aspect because it starts each VERSE in line with the other translation, making it easier to follow the two translations side by side, as opposed to a realignment only at chapter or section beginnings.
