NRSV Deluxe Gift Bible with the Apocrypha, Mocha on Cocoa Flexisoft
Excellent! Highly Recommend.
I have other imitation leather Bibles and all are excellent, but this one is the best by far. I'm amazed at the quality and attention to detail that Hendrickson has put into this Bible at such a low price.
I have the Hendrickson Award Bible and this one has the same excellent font and page layout, however this one has even better paper. The paper has very little show through like the Award Bible, however this one has a more traditional "Bible paper" feel with gold edges and a very subtle off-white shade, similar to the paper in much more expensive Bibles.
The cover is the best imitation leather of any Bible that I own or have seen. It really is that good. It is amazingly soft and very well constructed. The binding is sewn and very solid.
I honestly am amazed at the price and quality of this Bible. Highly recommend.

attractive and value
I have purchased many Bibles over the years, and needed to buy one to give to a friend who were being Ordained. It's traditional. I really wanted something a bit out of the ordinary (I was raised traditional evangelical), but also something which I expected to get used and not sit on a shelf. I think the NRSV is the best translation, based on my experience in studies of Greek and Hebrew. Many evangelicals are not familiar with the apocrypha (which I find a shame), and since this was present, I was all the more pleased. The appearance is sharp. We paid a bit more and had the person's name embossed. The man doing the ordination service looked over the Bible afterward and asked me where I got it. Later this year I bought 3 more for other ordinations.

This bible has great features
It has a soft feel and is easy to navigate. It has been an indispensable part of my ministry. It has already endured a lot of use and retains its original quality.
