I purchased this as a birthday gift for my teenage daughter. She LOVES it! The pages are a little heavier than the average Bible, which makes it more suitable for journaling. After reading comments about the small print, I was concerned and almost didn't buy it. But, I took a chance, and the print is fine. Yes, it is on the small side. But my 40+ year old eyes can read it, so it isn't an issue for us. The cover is BEAUTIFUL, even nicer than expected. Pictures do not do it justice!
the bible is beaitiful, the cover perfect for my style and very duravle. my only "complaont" is the pages are a bit thinner than i expected and the writing a bit smaller. maybe i dodnt read the details closely enough. these ate not big issues, just not expected.
I say valid review because no review here before 7/29/16 could have been written for this Bible as it was not available. See Crossway for the publication date. It's sad that Christian Book lumps this Bible in with all the older version reviews. This is for the 9 text size journaling Bible.
I need at least 9 points to be able to read text comfortably. This Bible is easy to read. There is lots of space to make notes. You can get a sample page at Crossway to see it. Look it up with the ISBN: 9781433555381.
The quality of the bonded leather cover is fantastic. It's so consistent and even across the Bible I thought it might be TruTone. It smells great and feels great. My wife got the floral pattern version. It's absolutely beautiful. Pick it up for the female in your family. I was amazed at how good it looks with the slipcase. This Bible did not come with the slipcase just a box. That's fine.
The paper is a warm off white color. It's very relaxing to the eyes. The print is dark, rich, and even throughout the Bible.
I've been waiting for this Bible for 6 months ever since I saw it was coming at the Crossway site. I am overjoyed by the quality of this Bible. I highly recommend it. Going straight to the Gospel of John to start taking notes.
