Charlee3 Stars Out Of 5I'll Never Buy Another Crossway BibleMarch 3, 2020CharleeQuality: 3Value: 2Meets Expectations: 1The genuine leather Study Bible is good, but would be better if it came with a slip cover, a clamshell box, or regular box. Buying this Bible means you must buy a Bible cover for it. It doesn't stand up on its own, and if you store it upright on a shelf, it will collapse on itself, leaving an ugly bend in the leather, and leave it weak. Learned this lesson the hard way. I have leathersoft Bibles that did come with a box for safe keeping, especially if traveling with it, or storing it. Now I know to lay it flat always, and don't go anywhere with it until I can buy a Bible cover for it. The bend has weakened the front cover, so it is now in storage, unable to use it because of no room to lay it flat.

apple_paste4 Stars Out Of 5Best Study Bible Out There - Questionable QualityFebruary 18, 2019apple_pasteQuality: 2Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This review is for the 'ESV Study Bible, Black Genuine Leather with Thumb Index, ISBN#1433553325'.
After spending some time with this study bible, I'm convinced that it is the best single-volume study aid out there. It's filled to the brim with essays, introductions, commentary, illustrations, and will be a go-to resource for as long as it holds up. However, I'm disappointed in the overall build quality of this edition. For a text that retails at $109.99, it's disappointing that I had to take glue to the paste-down liner to keep it from peeling up, the binding is off-center causing the first 100 or so pages to be less reinforced, and the cover is such a meager piece of leather that it can almost only be used on a table-top.
Regardless of it's quality faults, I'm still using this as my primary study aid. If you're looking for a single-volume study aid, this is an excellent choice and will serve you well.
