I bought this bible for my wife because she was wanting an NLT. She was very happy with it. The picture doesn't do the cover justice, much nicer than pictured and has a good feel to it. The overall size is good and the print is still very readable. Most of all the translation is so clear and understandable, she just simply enjoys sitting down and reading it :)
This bible has a few things going for it. It's a comfortable size and the font is clear, dark and easily readable. However the binding is not nice. I can't understand the listing as imitation leather. It seems more like imitation rubber. It is an attractive color and I like the bird but it's stiff, rough and feels awful in the hand. The silver gilt edges are my favorite but on my copy it is coming off and gives the appearance of being dirty. I know this was a brand new copy as the box was still sealed in plastic. The biggest negative is the bleed through. If the printing were lined up from the front of a page to the back it might be better but instead they're off so that in my copy nearly every line shows through. Now, I very much like the NLT so I may keep this copy and just put it on the "borrow table" at church. At this price it isn't worth returning when you consider postage both ways. I sooo like the size and if it weren't for the bleed through I would have it rebound in fine leather which was my original intent once the "imitation leather" wore out. I wish Tyndale would print this translation in a truely fine binding. I would gladly pay for quality. Maybe they will one day allow it to be printed in a "Clarion" edition.
I needed a new Bible and I wanted something small, easy to read, helpful and beautiful.
The Bible is small, but not too small. It fits easily in my purse or bookbag and it's light. The pages are silver and I love the bird on the cover. On the inside there's a presentation page, the NLT text (with the words of Christ in red, a feature I always appreciate!), and the NLT dictionary/concordance.
Some other things in the back of the Bible that I find really awesome are things like a list of Great Chapters of the Bible, and Great Verses of the Bible to Memorize, and a 365-Day Reading Plan. And then at the end of the Bible there are maps.
I am totally satisfied with my purchase and I honestly want to just buy tons of these and hand them out to everyone. This is definitely a Bible for someone who wants to get into God's word and dwell in it. The format of the pages, the translation, and the helps in the back make this a great gift for that person interested in really reading and keeping the Word of God in their heart. I'm going to start using the reading plan and memorizing the verses right away!
