I have always wanted a good wide margin reference Bible for study. Over the years I have found many that I would like to have but at the time could not afford the price. I ordered this one from CBD just a few days ago. It is one that was "slightly imperfectly imprinted". The imprint was blocked out so well it is hardly noticeable, and at about half the retail price it was a great find! I really like the space in the wide margins, and the note pages at the end. I have had Bibles bound with French Morroco Leather in the past, and with proper care this one will continue to look good and be werviceable for many years to come. I really like doing business with CBD. Their product descriptions are honest and accurate, they offer exceptional value, and the service is beyond comparison.
This is a replacement for my 30 year old NASB loose leaf bible. This is a beautiful Bible and will be an excellent replacement. Very good quality and is every bit of what was described in ad. God bless
This Bible is one of the best I have seen for those who like to write in their Bibles. The wide margins are there for a reason: so you can write in them. Of course, wide margins mean the Bible is a little too large to carry in your pocket or in a briefcase, so consider where you will use it.
The French Morocco leather is very nice. This is the second-tier leather option for this Bible. If you want to go top-shelf, get the same Bible with goatskin covers, which have a nice seam and significantly more flexibility. However, French Morocco is the traditional leather for Bibles that are carried, and it is very durable and still flexible...just not as flexible as the goatskin. I suspect the French Morocco may last longer, and at roughly 1/2 the price of the goatskin, this will be a tradeoff of price vs. quality that many consumers will gladly make.
This is a wonderful Bible except for the 8 point font which is a huge drawback considering my needs. I teach at a seminary and I am a pastor. The font size just makes this Bible clumsy to read in public. I have use for 21 years a single-column wide margin bible and I was hoping to replace it with something a bit smaller but not this small.
