I wanted to get a gift for my parents that would be an accurate, easy to read translation. Since their eyesight isn't as good as it used to be, I chose a larger type size bible for them. The good news is that they love it (I actually got one for each of them) and they read it every day.
I recommend the Holman Christian Standard Bible and ChristianBook.com!
It was an accident that I ordered this particular Bible. Not that I didn't mean to get the Holman Christian Standard Version, I really wanted to try it, but I didn't realize what size the "Super Giant Print" actually meant! At first,
I was almost embarrassed to be seen with what looked like a coffee-table version of the Bible, but now I absolutely love it. At the end of the day, when my eyes are tired, I can lay it on my lap and very easily read with no strain to my eyes at all. I really enjoy this version as well, it reads much like we talk today and gives a whole new perspective of God's word.
The print size of this bible was good for the purposes it was purchased, but the translation itself was not well received by the recipient. It would be great if this size print could be found in NIV, NKJV, even NLT or ESV.
