binder is very large.... bigger than anything I have ever seen that didn't incorporate a D-ring binder. but they don't and it doesn't have tare proof paper in it... paper is actually pretty thin. Anything this big should have larger print... but it doesn't have that either.
Nothing they say in the description is wrong... they just don't tell the whole story.
I have wanted a loose leaf Bible for all they years that I have been a Bible teacher. Now I have one and am able to use it in many ways. It is advantageous to remove a whole book of the Bible and have it with my notes in a 3-ring binder. I have an "regular" NIV Study Bible that is about worn out and this loose leaf will last me many years.
I ordered this book for my son that is away at college. He loves this book as a desk reference. This is a very large book. It is not recommended to carry around due to the size, but he has a study bible to carry to church with him. He can use this one at home to reference any passages or notes that he took at bible study. He said that he loves this version for being able to easily read any passage that he is studying. The loose leaf version makes it easy for him to remove pages to take with him and replace them when he returns. I recommend it for anyone that has space to keep it and study without having to strain with smaller print.
One of my New Year's Resolutions was to read through the entire Bible. The current Bible I use is great, but does not give me room to make many notes and the binding is beginning to come apart. I wondered if a "loose-leaf" Bible existed and, after some research, found this Bible. The price was very good and it seemed like a perfect fit. I had read one issue people had was that it was very big. This is true. However for my purposes it works great. I just pull out one book and put it in a smaller binder that I can take with me everywhere. I have highlighted and made notes everywhere, and because of the loose-leaf layout, I can print additional notes and information and include it at the exact spot in the Bible where it will make sense in the future. This Bible is not one that you will want to take to Church every Sunday, but as a study tool, it's perfect.
A loose-leaf Bible is not what you are probably going to bring with you to church. This tome is hefty, six inches thick and comes with a five-ring binder. I didn't weigh it, but we have a dog and a cat that weigh less.
For my working studies, I will probably have the portions I am using in a smaller three-ring binder and use the five-ring as a master. For those who want a more portable study Bible with a nice cover, look elsewhere. Given that I have had Bibles start off bound and ended up with loose pages, this will be a nice change of pace.
If I want to bring it to church, I'd better take the truck.
