The Companion Bible is my favorite bible. I had one that was published by Zondervan. For some reason this bible is being printed by Kregel. The new publisher shrunk the type making it even more challenging than before to read all of the notes. This is the only disappointment with this purchase. I expected to receive exactly what I had but got something different. The issue was that it only comes in black in the genuine leather cover. I was done with bonded leather. Other than the surprise of the size of type, I love this bible. I am going to keep this bible and have my other one rebound.
I opened box to my new Bible and to my surprise the front and back binding were completely split- pages separated from the binding- right out of the box, rubbed finger on the text and it smeared very bad- looked on first page and said it was made in China! I had to send it back and got a different KJV Bible entirely- I would not recommend this Bible to anyone-they used to be smith sewn-also, I had bought the Genuine Leather, and it was very very cheap, had to check to make sure it was real leather, at first it looked like bonded leather- but no, it was real leather- cheap, very cheap, but real-
This study Bible is the most excellent and timely Scripture resource available. I also purchased the large print for my office. Until recently I didn't know much about The Companion Bible but if you are a seasoned believer and have lots of concordances etc. this is my most valued resource now.
