I'm reading my Bible more than ever now. This version is easier to understand and I like how it defines words and gives the pronunciation of words. Hardcover edition is kind of thick, but I'll buy a Bible cover.
I am a junior in high school who was looking for a more serious Bible to study with. I was skeptical to buy the Quest version because I was unsure of its' answers to questions and the additional review in the margins, but I love it!! I have had it for about 2 weeks now and I have been more drawn to read the Bible on my own accord in the past two weeks with this Bible than I have in my entire life. The margin answers are actually to questions I find myself asking while I read and even point out a few things I didn't notice. There are also nice paragraphs after certain lessons explaining in more detail what that part of the Bible says about ____" The pages are not too thin and not too thick and I LOVE how it lays flat! The leather is a nice touch and has a substantial feel. I really suggest this Bible for ANYONE who has trouble committing to reading the Bible or does not commonly feel compelled to read the Bible on their own accord.
We gave this to our 14 year old granddaughter for Christmas and I think it is the most used gift she received! She absolutely loves it; uses it daily; says it is a great study-help with her Christian school studies. Her mom says she (granddaughter) carries it and uses it constantly!!!! Granddaughter's reply is: " I love it !"
This is the best bible I ever bought. Initially I bought it for my teen daughter but end up I read it everyday. I have many bibles and commentaries but I find this is the most convenience and everyday bible. I read bible everyday for about 10 years but this bible has answered me so much that I not even know or ask previously. I highly recommend this to new and experience christian or even unbeliever.
