I love the NIV Bible and the way it helps study the word of God...I love the large print but it is a little heavy to take to church. I will use it at home and during Bible study, The price was perfect.
I like the quality of the genuine cowhide leather cover! I have not been able to find Bibles bound as well and in as nice of leather covers compared to what I bought many years ago. But this edition comes as close as any. It is a study Bible, so it is larger and heavier than a plain text Bible would be, of course. But one of the purposes of buying a study Bible in the first place is to get the benefit of the helps to Bible study and Bible understanding such a Bible provides.
