This is a good Bible, but not up to my expectations. If I had checked it out in a local store to have had it in my hands prior to ordering, I would not have ordered it. I am very sorry I had it imprinted because then I could pass it along to someone else. I do not like the narrow margins since I like to make notations when doing a study. The paper feels grainy.
My one and only complaint is that there needs to a option with the text size. As far as I know there is only 8 point available, I got this for my wife for mothers day and hope she will be able to read it easily.
This is a really beautiful Bible. I got my name printed on it and it came out wonderful. The commentary, notes and articles are great. I love the character, life application and archaelogical icons related to a certain text in a passage. Wonderful, wonderful bible.
It's delicious! ...and, as usual, Zondervan has the best study notes available, now even better. NIV is easier reading, but do study in-depth with an exhaustive concordance to ensure accuracy ...to show yourself approved, as the Lord says. God bless.
