I really like everything this loose leaf bible has to offer. It has large side margins for making notes and it provides all the same additional great information as the normal NIV study bible. My only suggestion is, it maybe better if the Old and New Testaments were in their own binders. With the entire bible in one binder the bible is very large and heavy and the bible pages alone take up almost all the binder and my reason for wanting the loose leaf was to add sermon notes and additional information as I came across additional information, but in all, very good product.
The pages are almost exactly the same as a bound NIV study bible on a heavier paper. The pages are 8 1/2 x 11, so the bible weighs about four times the normal weight, maybe more. Plan on separating it into other binders and using only what you need when you take it to church.
The Bible pages are easy to read and have wide margins for notes-no complaints. The five ring binder is exceptionally cheap you will probably have to replace it, three ring binders work. Service is fast, curtious, and caring, I would definately recommend Christianbook.com and this Bible.
