I am very satisfied with the layout of this Bible. I am a pastor who was looking for an ESV preaching Bible that would lay comfortably upon my modern style metal pulpit, also be easy to pick up the words and phrases I want to highlight at a glance with my bifocal glasses, and be easy for turning to cross references. This Bible meets all three criteria. It is larger than any preaching Bible I have ever used, but it has worked so well the added size is not an encumbrance. I am very satisfied.
This is one of the few Bibles that I have purchased recently that uses quality paper and a nice dark ink so everything is very legible. This Bible is very easy to read and I really like the double column layout which is getting harder to find. My only negative comment would be the TruTone cover is very smooth which makes it a little harder to hold the Bible or keep a grip on it while reading.
The cover is fine quality. The Large Print is exceptional!!! Although I do not need the print to be that large right now I will surely love it in ten or fifteen years. Our church changed to the ESV recently so I wanted a bible that was compatible with what we were reading at church. This Bible is large and heavier than my last Bible, but the print is exceptional!!!
