We use the 1984 NIV version in our church and wanted to get more pew Bibles but could not get the same kind since they are no longer being printed. We were very thankful when this 1984 edition Bible was offered at an excellent sale price from CBD since we also wanted a large print Bible. It is easy to read and has an attractive cover.
This lovely colored Bible sits on my kitchen table, just waiting for my early morning devotions and Bible reading. I love the larger print...easy to read. The colors on the cover cause people to take a second look!
This Bible is exactly what I wanted in a Bible. 1984 NIV was my original Bible back when, I'm so glad to find the old version again! Size is perfect, easy to see and read, love the single column. And a real biggie for me is the fact that it is the Word of God...not a Bible with more footnotes than the Word itself. Thank you Zondervan for publishing this one, and CBD for a great value price. I'm happy all the way around.
This is a lovely Bible. However be sure to pay attention to the 12 point type info. It is a normal size, not even close to being a large print let alone a giant print as you would find in most other Bibles with that description. I suppose comparatively speaking it can be termed "large" but not like most other Bibles with that as a selling feature. And not even close to "giant".
I was hoping the 12 point was the mistake but was not surprised when it was a true 12 point type. I think the type of print descripton of this item should be made more clear....it is very misleading.
The friend to whom I gave it is so delighted! It's just what she's been looking for! I'm seriously considering another for the Bible study group I host! You should have seen how my friend's face lit up like a Christmas tree!
