Got the pkg in fine shape (one page of the 2600 some pages was improperly cut and was wrinkled but I shaved the excess off and refolded it; no printed material was missing though).
I'm incredibly impressed and excited to begin using this study bible; it is well annotated with information that nicely upgrades my study bible collection (I have NIV Application Bible bought in 2008 and The Open Bible which I've used since 1981).
The NLT Study Bible is the best study Bible today because it clarifies all difficult passages in the Bible. Buy those that is of leather bond because it is for a life time and even more so for the generation to use it.
I am not so sure if they are really genuine leather and the pages are sewed or glued..I need to use them for a life time long and I hope it will last !
