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. :))
This Bible has easily readable type. It has the very popular NIV translation, and the excellent Life Application notes that give quick, accurate and easily understandable explanations and references. The cover is quite handsome. It is a large Bible, but one you can easily read and, I think, the notes are the best. This large type version is a bit heavy compared to many other Bibles in small type. Other Bibles with hard to read type and few notes in tiny type result in a Bible that is little used.
