To start off with I'm critiquing this Bible for the quality of its construction. If you're looking for a nice looking Bible to give as a gift, I would pass this one up (unless you need to keep the price way down. For the price it's good. But you get what you pay for). The cover is functional. To me this is not the typical Leathersoft covered Bible. It's cheaper looking than other "Leathersoft" Bibles I own. I would describe it as having a thin rubber wrap over cardboard-like paper. The cover has no padding. It's very thin but feels soft. Its moderately flexible. If you bend the cover to hold the Bible in one hand, it will not flatten out completely after releasing your hold. It DOES have some flex to it though.
Now for the inside. The print is nice and dark but definitely not GIANT size. I would describe it as having large print. I would not recommend it for the visually impaired. The paper quality is good. It has a few nice colored maps in the back of the Bible. THERE ARE VERY FEW REFERENCES in this Bible so I wouldn't call it a reference Bible. I like the double-column line-by-line format. The introductions to each book are helpful but very limited in information. To me the introductions make the Bible look better.
I made a life-long resolution this year to study the Bible. I know all the popular verses but there is so much more I want to learn. I had purchased a Bible earlier for my husband but wanted one of my own. This Bible is smaller in size (6"x9") with a lovely cover and the giant print I need. I intend to use it. Thank you for having not only a wonderful selection of Bibles but of Christian products.
