The imitation leather seems flimsy. I am afraid my bible won't last long. I really wanted to like this bible. I got my name engraved on it. It is nicely priced. Next time I will only buy real leather unless I can actually touch the bible first before buying. I would have preferred a book mark also and it doesn't seem to be giant print either.
My friend saw my copy of the personal size giant print black bonded leather bible and oooh'd and aaah'd. There was a telephone special on this Bible in imitation leather and I decided to take a chance. I'm glad I did. My friend is very happy with the Bible. She said she enjoys the print size and all the harmony of the gospels, concordance and other fun things about it. I hope it lasts. So far so good. She didn't have a King James Version and really seems pleased with the gift.
The print is so very good and verse numbers are easy to see. I purchased a bonded leather black and it is nicer than some of my other leather bibles. The binding on this edition is sewn and I like the ribbon marker. I really like the maps in the back. Lots of color and detail. It has handy references in the back like parables of the old and new testament, harmony of the gospels and a where to look when you are in need of comfort etcetera. The only thing I wish it had was a help for unfamiliar words of the King James Version. I ordered a little dictionary since the Bible doesn't have one. You can not beat the price and quality of this leather bible. Christian Book Distributors is simply the best resource for great Bibles and books. Invest in the leather edition it will last longer.
