The Psalms, ESV in brown TruTone over board cover
February 28, 2015
I ordered The Psalms in this brown hard cover edition and in the top-grain leather edition, reviewed separately. Both are beautiful presentations of the Psalms for worship and enjoyment, and either would make a great gift. There is also a third option that I have not seen.
The brown TruTone over board edition has the look of a nice book of poetry, which of course it is (as well as so much more.) This edition is like a synthetic leather covered hardcover book, and includes a nice slipcase. Inside, the two editions are identical. The paper is much thicker than regular Bible paper and is a pleasing creamy color. The page edges are not gilded, which suits this type cover well. The large, attractive font is 11 pt., and is accented with deep red titles and small verse numbers in the left margins. There is one ribbon and a presentation page. Each Psalm is presented individually, as separate poems would be. I think even non-believers would appreciate this as a beautiful book of ancient poetry. It may become my go-to small gift for a while. A joy to read at a very affordable price.
The video link on the product page is a nice representation of this edition.
