I really liked the concept of the Rainbow Study Bible, but the soft cover version did not possess the quality I expected. The first time I opened it, the entire book popped out of it's cover. I ended up returning it and opting for the the leather bound version which is extremely nice, but much more expensive.
Since I gave my NIV Rainbow Study Bible to a family member I was happy to find an affordable replacement in the KJV. I like the color scheme with the verses as it is easy to find passages on certain themes. The helps at the back are really good - verses to learn, words that have changed in meaning, important verses. There is good information about the New Testament but I can't find the place right now to describe it.
This is my second Rainbow Study Bible. And this is the second one that fell apart. i love the design and the features, but this was not manufactured well at all. Both Bibles i recieved came unglued...the binding came apart, and as a result it's now in sections...again. i would not recommend it for THIS reason.
I have a Rainbow bible that I have had for several years and I absolutely love it! I was looking for a bible that I could leave at church to keep from carrying mine back and forth. I wasn't expecting this bible to be of the best quality, but it exceeded my expectations by far. It is exactly like the one that I have had for years. It is my favorite bible and it is an excellent price! I would recommend this product to everyone.
