I purchased this bible because our church uses this version. Some of the large font bibles were only 8. I searched and found this size 12 font which is perfect for anyone who has difficulty reading small print. It has made such a difference for me.
I bought 4 different ESV Bibles for my children. I got this large print Pew Bible for my youngest son. In my opinion, from the 4 ESV Bibles that I purchased, this one is the BEST. We also have a ESV Pew Bible that is not large print, and that is wonderful as well. The hardcover will last a while, (mine does), and it's easy to read, (both translation and letter size). This is slightly more than the "gift and reward" Bibles, but I think its definitely worth it. I was disappointed with the "gift and reward" ones. Yes they are inexpensive, but not really good quality in my opinion. I'm kicking myself for not getting the other 3 kids a hardcover ESV Pew Bible, (large/normal print).
This ESV Bible far exceeded my expectations, the print is large enough to read without straining my eyes, it has a great look to it, very durable, I enjoy the translation, and it is such a great buy for an affordable price. Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ for his Word!
I bought these for personal use because we have a new pastor and he likes the ESV.
I had considered buying more for the church, but since one of the two that I bought had a defect in the binding, I would not want to chance buying more of the same.
If you look at the inside cover the first pages were improperly glued and because of that they are wrinkled in a manner that can not be fixed without cutting out the first two pages. That would not be acceptable.
