I obtained this bible as a gift from my beautiful wife the other day, and I truly enjoy it. I already had the HCSB Study Bible, and enjoy it very much. So, of course I HAD to get a KJV version. I'm so glad she was able to get it for me. The binding quality is excellent, in my opinion. I chose the Saddle Brown version, and it's top notch. The pages are of good quality, and the text is very clear. Nice to have study notes at the bottom which really help. The only "glitches" that I would have to say is that one the first few uses, the pages tend to stick together. One must be careful about seperating them so they don't rip. The other is that in certain few passages where I expected clarity through the notes at the bottom, it was either not there or was vague. But, overall this is a "must have" for anyone who enjoys study bibles, and especially who prefer the KJV.
When the Grandkids get bored with the church school handouts they seem to enjoy this very dynamic KJV. It's exactly what they hear from the minister but with a more colorful depth that they are able to connect with (similar to walking through with the NIV Archeological Study Bible). My only disappointment is that it doesn't have those occassional greek translation bubbles that the HCSB had. My joy is in their interest. It also gives me a couple of years before I have to explain about the differant versions.
Great study bible. The publishers produced a great product. The helps are so well done that I probably will purchase another one....but in The Holman version. I have no cons to report about the helps, construction, type of paper etc. Pictures are clear and crisp and print size is good also (and I am 64 and wear glasses). I am truly a "happy camper".
