Our adult Granddaughter asked for an ESV Bible for her Christmas gift. She was pleased with all the extra reference materials contained in the New Classic Reference Bible and said that it would be helpful in preparation of Sunday School lessons for Middle School students. Genuine leather is a good quality for longevity with much use.
I am very disappointed in the quality of the leather. I have a personal size large print Crossway Bible and the genuine leather is so soft on it and then this Bible's leather is very hard and creases when opened. It is hard to break in and I'm not happy with it at all. Mine already has creases like a paperback would and I've only used it 2 times so far. The quality of the pages are good and they are thick. The writing is laid out nicely and easy to ready. I loved the references and the extra maps and pages in the back, but the reason this got such low score is because of the quality of the Genuine leather. It doesn't feel like genuine leather at all!
