I wanted to know if this Bible still had 2 ribbon markers. When I asked no one at Christianbook knew apparently, they said one. This Bible still has 2 ribbon markers. That was one of the main features I wanted, im pleased by that. The Bible is not the 1982 design like my old one, this ones leather is different and so is the paper and print size and style. I wish they could put the new box in the additional views option so people would know what there getting. So far the Bible seems awesome though, plus its Gods Holy Word!
This translation is not for a novice or new christian. But if you want a classic translation with a larger print but without a lot of commentary, this would be a very good choice.
It has a relatively small footprint and is pretty space efficient without sacrificing readability. The reference symbols used are helpful without taking up a lot space and are concisely explained on a beginning facing page. The self pronouncing names are really helpful (assuming a basic understanding of English phonetic symbols).
Another thng I like is that the lines aren't as close together as most smaller print Bibles; many times people need this distance more than the bigger print. The dual column format makes for easier reading too.
About print size: giant is relative. If you're familiar with the typical size print in most Bibles (8 point, sometimes less), this print could be called giant compared to that. Compared to print type in other types of books, I'd just call this large. (Think of a business letter in 12 pitch vice 10 pitch.) If you need type bigger than a regular large print book, this may not be big enough for you.
