I really am pleased with my purchase. This is one of the best bibles that I have bought. Max's life lessons commentaries are just beautiful and really bring it all together. Don't hesitate on adding this to your library.
I buy a lot of Bibles for Baptism Presentations. This is high quality at a great price. Max Lucado is very easy to read and his study help will help our new believers. I really like a leather cover. I would definitely buy this product again and recommend it to my friends.
When, at age 43, I had grown tired of the "world," I heard a voice speak to me (huh? what? who's that?), which led eventually to a church and the Christian book store to purchase a Bible that I truly planned to read. An earlier printing of this Max Lucado Bible was my selection. It was the New King James Version, which is very easy to read while preserving those iconic phrases of the old King James, and it was very inviting, which was important to me. It looked interesting, and it was interesting! Some of Mr. Lucado's content got photocopied and distributed to my friends or saved outside the Bible itself. I would recommend this Bible for anyone, but especially for the beginning reader of any age! I went on to purchase this Bible again (after seriously marking up the first one...), and even bought it again, as a hardcover book because they last so long in the bookshelf. So I have no reservations recommending this particular version and Mr. Lucado's "life lessons" and accompanying material. It's truly a great work!
I bought this Bible for myself and am very pleased with it. Pricing is excellent too. Sidebars on the pages; notes on salvation and forgiveness; additional writings from Max Lucado and the Topical Index are very helpful and are added bonuses in helping me gain the right perspective when I read it. I have since bought the same Bible to give to a friend as an Easter gift and who later told me how much she enjoyed reading this Bible.
I bought it for my husband and his good friend who is in a group home for men. My husband likes it, but the friend can't read it because the print is way to small. You need to make all Your bibles in Giant and or EXTRA giant print without raising the price, so that everyone who doesn't have perfect or better eyesight can read them. For many people they are either too small of print, or too high of price.
