I bought the bonded (cherry) leather one. For the price on this website you can't go wrong. I thumbed through it last evening after it arrived and I'm very impressed with what I see. I have a Nelson NKJV Study Bible I've had for years so I had no hesitation buying another Nelson bible. It will be awhile before I make this my daily reading as I'm currently finishing-up with the NRSV. I really like all the color in this bible.
This bible has great potential with it's study helps, however it seems it's historical chronology could use some work. I am reading this bible at this point to understand the prophetic writings of scripture better within their historical setting but this bible does not meet what I hoped it would be, and I realize there are others that may. It does not integrate Kings and Chronicles together in a manner that is easy to follow, nor does it include some of the prophets writings placed in accurate historical settings. For instance I am reading of Judah's judgment BEFORE I come to read of their full demise into idolatry with their king. So if your looking for a bible with great study helps, this may be for you. If your looking for a bible with an easy to follow and solid chronology, you will need to look elsewhere as I am doing.
