Just received the Bible and it is very impressive. The leather cover and binding seem top of the line. The paper quality is very good with little ghosting. The paper is not as thick as some of the reviewers suggest but it is high quality. The single column format and 9 point font make for relaxed reading. Overall it seems like a good investment and should bring years of joy in reading God's Word.
I love the Bible its made very well and uses very high quality paper. I would like it to be a bit larger and be able to get it with large print because I am using it for Bible study and marking it up is part of the deal.
My wife bought me this for my birthday over a year ago. I wanted to get the Bible for sometime and was thankful when she had bought it. The single column of the verses makes it easy to read because the sentences are longer than your normal Bible and the font is very easy to read. I use the Bible as my pulpit Bible as it allows me to read directly from the Scripture without stumbling into another column.
I recommend it to any believer! Pastors included, of course! :)
-The thicker, high quality paper & line matcing technology make this Bible's pages very clean with virtually no "ghosting" from one page to the next.
-Wide margins allow for study notes.
-This genuine leather is the stiffest leather I have ever handled; much worse than all previous Crossway Bibles I have come across. (I recommend a "trutone" version for a supple feel and open flat capability).
-Heavy to hold for extended periods of time (due to heavier paper and wide margins).
