5 Stars Out Of 5

First off, I want to commend CBD on the speed of this delivery; I do live in the same state as the warehouse, but I have never received any order the morning after it ships...this is the fastest delivery ever, thank you!!!
The Global Edition is larger than the Student Edition of the Fire Bible, but the font is also bigger. There are no notes or anything directed towards Campus Missionaries (CM), as this particular edition is not directed at students. This Bible is, admittedly, somewhat bulky to try and carry around, but I think it's worth it. As for the notes in the Fire Bible, they are in-depth and extremely beneficial for anyone wanting to study His Word. Have you ever read a verse that just didn't seem to make sense, or hear someone use a verse to prove their point? A lot of debated verses are clearly explained in these notes, and it just helps so much to have things clarified....sometimes, you'll see yourself looking at a portion of Scripture in a totally new way, just from being able to understand it fully.
I wasn't able to buy this particular Bible at the regular price, so I figured I'd take a chance and buy it from the "slightly imperfect" category. I have yet to find anything wrong with it, except for perhaps some minor scratches on the pages when closed (not that it matters; that will happen from being taken in and out of my backpack anyway). I had considered buying this in hardcover, but it's pretty pointless to buy any Fire Bible in hardcover; you're going to use it so much that it's a guarantee the cover won't be able to hold up.
So...yeah...the Bible is kind of big, but worth carrying around. The price is excellent and the delivery speed was above anything I was expecting.
Probably one of the best purchaes I've made :)
