This Bible is awesome. Easy to read from while preaching and prepping. It is not too bigger either given that it is a verse by verse bible (still bigger/thicker than others in this size range). Good quality. Lots of space to write in the margins.
Overall, this is a wonderful Bible. the margins have enough space to write notes in, the line by line makes it easy to ready & the font size is easy for me to read. It has helpful maps in the back & the concordance is good. The cover is softer & a little more flexible than my old Bible, but it doesn't affect the quality. The cover is a soft leather (or leather-like material) that is holding up great. I have traveled with it, jammed it in a backpack several times, & my kids haven't been too easy with it either. As I said it is holding up great! The only downfall is it doesn't contain Christ word's in red. I solved this problem by underlining them with a red pen. Overall, I made the right choice and I love this Bible!
I have been looking for the perfect Bible for a long time. I have been using the ESV Classic Reference Bible for over a year but missed a verse by verse edition. This Bible is great. There is very little if any ghosting seen through the pages and the print and space between words and lines make it very easy to read. It opens flat, has lots of room for notes in the margins and great references. .The only improvement I would like to see is in the cover which is a little thin otherwise I would highly recommend this Bible. I'm very pleased.
What a great bible. The construction quality is there; thicker paper, with almost no bleed through and the verse by verse is great for me to underline or highlite as you like. Overall great product, was shipped in the stated time frame. I would highly recommend this product and Christianbook.
What is special about this Bible is the verse-by-verse format that allows finding verses easily while preaching in the pulpit. Hope to use it for years to come - perhaps even until the return of the Lord!
