This bible is not "bad" per se. It is quite pretty and feminine. But it is not at all what it looks like in the photo: a two-toned purple imitation leather cover.
The cover is a single tone of purple and a bit more like tooled rubber... which is actually ok, and I wouldn't have been disapointed if the photo had been more accurate. But that is a computer screen for you! So I don't blame Christain Book for that. Just be aware of this.
My main complaint is the interior. The pages are a bit warped so that when you open the bible the book curls upward. The pages are also terribly thin so that you can clearly see the print from the other side. I find this distracting. The print itself is a gentle purple colour that I love - but due to the thin paper it becomes a challenge when reading against the backdrop of print from the other side of the page.
Overall, this bible feels cheap. It is pretty but quite cheaply made and not what I was expecting.
I first knew about this particular Bible from a friend who is currently battling cancer and she enjoys it so much. I thought it would be a great gift for another friend who is a cancer survivor and she is thrilled with it. I would definitely purchase another one if the need arises.
