I received this as an anniversary present Sept 2015. I was wary of the quality because the lining of the cover is only paper, but it has held up to daily use and use during services and small study groups. I love the large print and the thumb index(which was a surprise, the description did not say it was indexed!). The only change I would make is to use a larger font on the study/application notes. I still use a magnifier on those. Get this Bible. You will be blessed by your time in the Word.
I love, love, love it! I enjoy the large print and the color of the cover. It matches with my Bible journal that I use for notes. I recommend the Life Application Study Bible to anyone who is interested in studying the Word of God!
Just what I wanted. Love the large print, the foot notes, the thumb index and the color Italian Duo-Tone, Dark Orchid/Plum. Arrived in a timely manner. I will be given one as a gift to my daughter. NIV explains the scriptures to apply the present day.
This Study-Bible WILL NOT disappoint. It is absolutely beautiful!!! If you're looking for a bible to guide you through not only the scripture...but through life as well...THIS ONES FOR YOU!!! Though this is imitation leather it is very sturdy and durable. However, Leather or Bonded Leather is of higher quality. I always use bible covers on all of my bibles individually as to prevent wear. This particular bible is thumb-indexed even though it does not show on the pictures. For those who do not know...Thumb Indexed simply means there basically are tap like indention's for each book of the bible for easier/quicker reference. I personally prefer all of my bibles to be thumb indexed. In my personal opinion this is a MUST HAVE for every Christian. :))
