I have had this Bible for several months. I write in it nearly every day and love the space I have for making references and notes. The font is not giant but it is large enough to read comfortably. It is larger and heavier than the Bible I use in church so it is used primarily for home study. It has good quality pages for writing on and I recommend the genuine leather binding. I like the references that Hendrickson uses and am glad to see them with a large margin Bible. The only things I could complain about would be that when I erase a note or errant underline it also starts erasing the nearby words :-P and I agree with the other reviewer it needs two or three ribbons for page markers as I am frequently all over my Bible during study time.
I absolutely love this bible! The text is large and easy to read, and in a clean, crisp, lovely font. The large margins all around the text make this an ideal version for note taking. I ordered the genuine leather and it is soft, supple and beautiful. Spend a little extra and order the genuine leather instead of the bonded leather; it is well worth the extra dollars, and you'll be using this bible for years and years. I couldn't be happier that Hendrickson came out with this awesome bible. For the features I needed, this is the best bible available today. I thank God for my new bible.
If you like taking notes in your Bible, and if you desire a GREAT BIBLE along with that, this is the Bible for you. This is a Great Bible. I purchased the (2008) edition in December of 2008 for a Christmas gift to myself, and it was taken from me, after only having it for some 6 months and I loved that Bible. But this (2013) edition is even better, and really its more than I even expected. This edition is Red Letter, and the Bible paper is great. This edition is also available in Genuine Leather and I love that. I will purchase another in the next few weeks. If there was something, I would add to this Bible for the next edition, it would be: (1) adding 2 ribbon markers for study in both the Old & New Testaments, (2) adding 3 ribbon markers with the Apocrypha between the Old & New Testaments! Now that we are in the 21st Century, you would think that 2 ribbon markers in a Bible would be standard. I salute Hendrickson Publishers for producing a masterpiece!!!!!
