Wow. The type, notes and helps are fabulous in this Study Bible. One shortfall is the red words of Christ are pale. This is a re-occuring problem of many study Bibles (excepting Holman's KJV Study Bible for example). The cover is cardboard covered with thin cloth-like material, leaving the cover to curl as many of these types of covers do.
I received this Bible as a Christmas present and I absolutely LOVE it! The cover is gorgeous and the Bible fits well in my hands - not too large and not too small. It is full of good and interesting information that is not in the Bible I previously used, and I love that the words of Christ are in red. That may not be a point of interest for some, but I wanted that feature in a Bible. It is also very reasonably priced. I love this Bible and I would recommend it to anyone!
