5 Stars Out Of 5
Just what I've been looking for
January 22, 2015
This is just the right size for me (actually, I never had a personal size bible and I thought it would be smaller). I have some other good bibles but, other than my Amplified, the covers on the others - well, you get what you pay for. I would have liked it if they had the Complete Jewish Bible with a leather cover rather than a hard cover.
Basically, I wanted a bible I could carry around, curl up with, take to church, bible study, etc., without the pages being folded or the cover getting worn or cracked (good bibles but cheap covers).
The pages are a good thickness. It doesn't seem like a highlighter would bleed through but I'm not taking any chances. Got a couple of dispensers of translucent, colored tape specifically for bibles and it's removable (why?). Works great--wide enough to cover three lines; if it's too much, you can draw a line on top of the tape.
Like the large size font and it almost seems to be in bold print (not, but comparatively speaking) and the red in the NT is red, not pink.
Also the fact that it lays flat. The only other one I have that is smyth-sewn is a study bible -- too bulky to carry around.
OK, not an exhaustive concordance - good opportunity to memorize; though I use one of my other bibles for that or Google.
Didn't want the tabs, saved some there. The headings are a nice feature; easy to read and the brown, genuine cowhide feels really good in my hands . . . nice antique-looking spine. I'm not even getting a cover for this one.
For less than $40. - that's a deal! Ordered on the 20th, was here on the 22nd - can't ask for better than that.
Extremely satisfied with their customer service.
