My wife had been wanting one of these bibles for a while and I got it for her for Christmas. She LOVES it! The only thing I thought of was that I wish they had it in NIV but turns out she wanted the ESV anyway. It seems solid and I like that the pen holder actually holds a pen adequately.
This Bible is great for jotting little notes during the sermon like I wanted. It is not for writing out the whole sermon so if that is what you want out of this Bible it wouldn't work for you. I wish the font were just a little bigger, but on the other hand I love the size and the weight. I am finding trouble finding the perfect Bible cover though so if anyone has a suggestion on that I would love hear them! I wish the Bible covers that fit this Bible were listed below it on the web page. Would make shopping for one easier.
