I was baptized when I was little but over the last 15 years had drifted away from my faith. Recently I have been inspired to reconnect and I decided purchasing a bible would be a good start to learn more. I just got it in the mail today and I love it. One thing I didn't see in the other reviews is that the front and back cover are not just kind of soft but super soft. I think I was expecting a little bit of a firmer, less flexible front and back cover but I just glued some really heavy-duty card stock into it and it gave the structure I was after. I am absolutely elated with this beautiful, sleek bible. The clasp to keep it from flopping open is fantastic and helps keep it together while in a purse or a bag. Definitely would recommend the bible- just be aware that the the front and back covers are very flexible. :)
Bought for our 9 yr. old daughter. She reads it every day, but really thought the cover was cool looking. Also liked that the index had the books of the Bible grouped by category; such as, Books of History, Books of Poetry, Major Prophets, Minor Prophets, etc.. As she has been memorizing them.
