I found the cover material sturdy and more than ample to cover my ESV hardback study bible, which was what I was looking for. Unfortunately, the handle seems rather insubstantial and flimsy for the weight of the bible this covers. I'm concerned about how long it will last.
The bible study section is a nice feature, but has a velcro patch to close it. I'm hoping that this will not turn into a problem.
I'm a little disappointed in the cover and wish there had been more choices for my needs. Not sure that I would recommend this to a friend or not. It would depend on their need.
I've been looking for a bible cover for almost 3 years and wish all CBD bible covers showed dimensions to make the choice easier.
This Bible cover is good quality and large enough to accommodate my parallel Bible. However, I find that the organizer on the back makes it very bulky and I can't seem to lay it flat on the table. I do not like the organizer. I am purchasing the same cover without the organizer for this Bible.
This cover is great for a wide spine Bible. It fits my Life Application Study KJV Bible perfectly ! I especially like the velcro fold out with notepad - very helpful for taking notes during your studies. The only drawback is the markers & pen leave something to be desired, but for the price who cares. Overall, you can't beat the quality of this item for the price. Trust me, I searched for quite some time. I would definitely recommend this cover. God Bless
I have a Zondervan Comparative Study Bible and it is BIG (spine bigger than 2.5")!!! I was concerned when my original Bible cover wore out (the handles broke long ago under the weight but at least it was still contained!), as I hadn't been able to find a replacement. I'm thankful that a friend recommended Christianbook.com!! This cover fits my Bible VERY well! I also appreciate the pockets, the pens, the notepad and the room to put things! I'm thankful for all the others who also posted their recommendations, as it encouraged me to take the chance and order this cover. I pray this helps, as well!! :-)
I really like the magnifier ruler to mark with and see better when needed. The four color pen is nice too. The notebook for taking notes while studying is helpful especially when I am preparing for a sermon. The wide spine allows me to carry other books and lesson studies without carrying a briefcase. This cover is just the right size for me.
