Very pleased with this purchase. If you are on the fence, let me encourage you to get this. Really like the cover design. It's a cream/off white (not pure white) with sapphire blue, very nicely done with good quality stitching. This volume is relatively lightweight and easy to hold. You can actually hold the Bible in one hand comfortably, and use the other hand to freely turn the pages. How perfect is that? Good to read in your favorite chair or to carry around. The FONT size is 11 point and very easy to read. Cannot say enough about this! The text is NOT Giant size for those with visual disabilities, rather this is average-large type for adults (think typewriter print size). So, if your eyes get tired at the end of the day and you want an easier time reading the text, this one is for you. No squinting to read 7 point. Not too many notes really, but that's stated clearly in the description above (not a study bible). The notes are just basic cross references. Likewise, the maps at back of book are just basic maps. For those who need to know, the presentation pages are called: "Presented to, Husband's family tree, Wife's family tree, Our children, Our grandchildren," and there's a page for family deaths, so if you into family recordkeeping, this is nice touch. The translation is NKJV and you can research more about this translation on your own, but it's a reliable translation (literal). Overall, this is a nicely bound, comfortable-to-hold bible that is a pleasure to Read and Enjoy for men and women, all ages. Cannot believe it is offered at a very reasonable price! Would definitely recommend it for anyone needing an easy read.
There's nothing not to like about this Bible. It has an eminently readable 11 point font, quality paper, an attractive and supple cover, cross-references at the end of verses, and a sewn-binding. I really cannot think of anything I don't like about the construction of this Bible. In fact, it serves as a template other publishers should look at and follow. There are too many designer Bibles out there with bells and whistles many people just aren't interested in. If you want to read the Word without distractions on the page, this one will get you there. I forgot to mention that there is a concordance and short introductions to every book. You won't be disappointed if you like the NKJV. Actually, the NKJV is my second choice in translations, but Crossway doesn't make an ESV I can read in a compact format like this. This Bible, therefore, has become my daily read, and it is guaranteed for life!
The bible was what I expected all around. It was easy to read, and it was easier to understand than the King James Version. I love the soft leather cover that is on it and I would recommend this bible to anyone that wants a bigger print than the standard size.
