Everything about it was just what I expected. This Bible was my 8 year old daughter's first real Bible and I have no doubt it will hold up wonderfully for years to come. The cover is very soft and flexible for laying open as you would like to have in a Bible.
I bought this as a gift for my wife, and I was extremely pleased when it arrived. The look and feel of the bible do a great job of complimenting the awesome content of God's word. The fact that the bilble is indexed makes it quick and easy to find passages on the fly during sermons and studies.
First of all,it is important to have and read the bible. The NASB is my bible translation of choice. The John MacArthur study bible is great because John explains every verse in a way you can understand it. John takes the truth of the bible and helps explain it. There is no added opinions or false fluff. It is just the truth of the bible. I bought these bibles for my whole family so we can all have the same bible for our family bible time. I highly recommend this bible.
