This product is excellent!!! I haven't been able to keep my eyes and nose out of it!!!! I've read the Bible but this definitely breaks it down and I'm understanding it more and the word is sticking to me!!! I've let several of my friends look at it and they've all went out and purchased it!!!
As always, Christianbook.com was a pleasure to buy from, fast service, nicely packed for shipping and the price simply can't be beat. Now on to my review of "The Voice" bible, Special Ed. hand-crafted genuine leather.
I can't begin to describe how much I enjoy reading this latest English translation, the style, layout and wording itself simply makes reading the Scriptures not only come more alive but also flow much more easily and therefore quickly. I've never read a more flowing (and accurate) translation. The in text notes are clearly separated in style and typesetting and help clarify and link the scriptural text in a way that isn't intrusive to the reader. The maps at the back of the bible are bold and colorful and add to the overall study/reading of the Bible.
As for the genuine leather hand-crafted cover, I love that too. Created in Argentina this particular bible helps employ natives there with a steady, better paying job than otherwise may be available. So not only do I have a great, literal, one of a kind bible, but the sale also helps another human being who isn't as blessed as I myself am. A great deal in my opinion, beautifully bound bible for me and a good paying job for another!
The hand-crafted edition is very unique and one-of-a-kind; no two will be exactly the same. There are some noticeable flaws in natural leather(to be expected) and it is not a smooth, refined leather but somewhat rough around the edges. There is a strong leather smell that is a desirable quality of genuine leather. It is cosmetically appealing though there are no gilded edges or thumb indexing. Has a more rustic quality but in a good way.
The translation is the best part; it is stimulating and refreshing!!! I have the New Testament version, the hard cover version, and now this hand-crafted leather version so that I can take it with me anywhere...sometimes I don't want a heavy book to lug around, so the NT is perfect for those times. I can take it outside and not worry about ruining an expensive copy. I have been taking this Bible wherever I go since discovering it because its hard to put down! I can understand why the enemy is so against this version; its a huge threat to the darkness he has kept people in for so long!!! Jesus is Lord !!!
