The quality is pretty good. I like the different font sizes and layout of the text. Overall is it a nice looking Bible.
There are two things I would like to see improved on. First and foremost, a better quality and thicker paper would be a tremendous improvement. I am willing to pay more for the Bible if Ryrie could use better paper.
Secondly, the verse numbers need to be larger in size. It is hard to find them when you need to find a verse.
I'm rather surprised at some of the reviews I've read; 'Shallow' is the word that comes to mind. I thought that the point of 'The Word' was just that...reading the word...no matter what the outside wrapping is, it's what is inside that matters! I bought the hard back with red wording & finger index. Let me say that I am well pleased with this bible! To those that seem to think that they need a "leather look" to their bibles and then are not happy with their purchase...maybe you should just go with the hardback & order a bible cover that suits your taste. That's what I did. But please remember, it is the word of God that you are purchasing that matters, not the cover. After all...the early church didn't even have the written word, it was spoken. Corrie Ten Boom had just a few scriptures written on scraps of paper while she languished in a Nazi concentration camp....so lets be thankful for the whole written word of God copies that we have shall we? God Bless.
I was disappointed in the cover. Looks cheap and I don't think it is going to last. Love the way it reads though. I have the NASB. Miss the verses being more noticeable. Really have to look to find the verses. Love Ryrie tho. When this one wears out, which won't be long, I will get a better binding bible.
i was a bit shocked when i saw the cover. it looks like cheap vinyl cover. i searched for a genuine leather, NASB, with book introductions, and that was an indexed bible that wasn't too bulky to carry around. This was the one that had everything I wanted. the font is clear and easy to read. I will keep this bible despite the cheap look cover. There aren't as many choices in NASB as there are in other versions. It seems that most bibles now a days have reduced quality
