Very poor quality, even for Nelson
October 23, 2012
I own many leather Bibles, and most are ESV, NASB, or HCSB. This Bible is now the worst that I own. The cover may be "bonded leather", but it's the cheapest, thinnest, stiffest bonded leather I've ever seen. And it smells like chemicals, not leather. I have an imitation leather HCSB Giant Print that is much better. This NKJV's binding is glued, not sewn. The print is not "Giant", but more like 11-12 point large print despite the box saying "13". The so-called "red letter" text is really more of a pink or light red. Very hard to read with not much space between lines. "Holy Bible" is stamped in cheap gold letting on the front cover, unlike the plain black photo on the product page. The Bible is "Printed in Colombia" (South America). If you want a true giant print Bible at a reasonable price, go with the HCSB mentioned above. It costs ten dollars less and the quality is much better. Nelson should be ashamed to put their name on this product.
