This product was more than I expected. I bought 3 bibles to give as gifts, and I as well as the recipients, were in awe of the beauty and appearance of this amazing bible. I will be purchasing more. Thank you so much.
Wonderful translation, a must have in your library
August 3, 2012
I just purchased this bible to use just for reading. I noticed the statement on the box it came in that says "Once you start reading it, you won't want to put it down". This is a true statement. I don't normally write reviews but I want to share what I have found with all Christians. The paraphrasing of this bible seems to make the words just roll as though your were reading a novel. I wasn't able to visualize the stories and lessons as well as I'd liked until I started reading this wonderful translation. I highly suggest that you consider this bible as the next book you read. I would also like to add that the Leatherlike cover feels very comfortable and warm. The print is somewhat smaller than I like but the paper is thicker which makes the pages easier to turn. Thank you for taking the time to read this review. I don't believe you will be disappointed at all with the beautiful book of God's Word. God bless you!
I have many translations of the Bible that I use for study. I use the Living Bible as my devotional. I find it to be an excellent paraphrase that reads almost like a novel. Although inexpensive, the quality of the leathertone is excellent. It is holding up very well, and believe me it gets a lot of use from me.
