This was disappointing but probably due to the fact it was hardcover and the text inside reads like a textbook instead of a Bible. Maybe due to the fact there are no red letters for Words of Christ. I would suggest getting the leather style and it may then feel more like a Bible.
I like this Bible because you have two versions side by side. If you don't understand the King James version you can look next to it and see what the NIV version says. There are areas on the pages to write notes. I think it is an awesome way to learn more about Christ and relate it to the times today.
