I really enjoy this Bible. It is just the right size to hold. Very comfortable. Compared to my ESV Study Bible, it is very light weight. I like the introductions to each book. The font is easy to read and the color maps and illiustrations in the back are really great. Also, the cover is very attractive. I give it my highest recommendtion.
I am a pastor, so I tend to wear out my Bibles. After 1-2 years of normal use, most of my Bibles barely hold together well enough to sit on my bookshelf.
I purchased the genuine leather New Classic Reference about 1 1/2 years ago and have used it as my "everyday" Bible for study, research, teaching, and preaching. It has held up wonderfully and has really "broken in" well.
The ESV is an excellent translation, and this particular NCR edition has been very well-done; it is a beautiful workhorse of a Bible. I'm looking forward to using it for years to come. Highly recommended.
