Overall very nice and at a fantastic price. Makes a good Bible for buying many of, and handing to others who need a Bible! ...like perhaps at Salvation Army shelter. It is hardcover. Two pretty ribbon bookmarks. Words of Christ in red. Some references at bottom of pages. Very nice devotions, book introductions too...has background, message, time, outline. Recommended to others for giving away, and for those who are short on cash and cannot afford a Study Bible. The book iteself is black and the paper jacket has a lovely picture on it. I do wish it had a larger print inside and that the book itself was at least an inch larger in both directions. It's too small. But would be perfect for a backpack or carrying on vacation/travel times.
