I like the large print format. The imitation leather is soft and nice very like real leather. I've found a couple of places that I dont agree with the translation but for getting a sense of what it would sound like in modern language it does very well. I would also recommend using this Bible with a good translation along side for studying.
I have enjoyed reading from The Living Bible over the years, and enjoy the way it opens the Scriptures with every day language. It is not a translation, it is a mans interpretation, and I would recommend using a true translation for in-depth study. This Living Bible can make understanding some passages a little easier.
Before you start your Bible reading, or study, Ask the HOLY SPIRIT for HIS guidance.
This Bible is well bound, and a pleasure to read with the large print. The imitation leather cover looks great, and feels good in the hand. I had my name imprinted, and it looks nice.I have enjoyed shopping here at CBD for several years, and they have never let me down. A great Christian company you can rely on for great service, and fair prices.
I had a standard size print Living Bible for a few years that I finally gave away last year because it was too hard on my eyes. I am glad Tyndale finally put out a large print version. This bible has the usual high quality I have come to expect from Tyndale. The quality of the binding is excellent and the green cover is padded. It should last a long time. The 10.5 type is darkened, almost bold which makes the type easier to read. I was hoping for a 12 point type version but with the darkened 10.5 type this is fine. Since it's a paraphrase instead of a literal translation it may not be the best version to use for a bible study but I think it is still unsurpassed as a reading bible. It is a particularly good version to get new believers, or pretty much anyone who is unfamiliar with the bible, interested in reading the bible. You do give up some of the majesty of some individual verses with this version but it really is hard to put down once you start reading it. The only thing I would like to see changed is to have the words of Christ in red and have a ribbon marker. Other than that I would recommend this bible to anyone who is looking for a reading bible.
