Neat, single columns, wide margins to write in, no extraneous detail cluttering the page: the perfect reading Bible. The size is very comfortable for carrying to church and Bible study. I couldn't have designed one more perfect for my needs.
I prefer to make my own study Bible so I purchased this Bible for the purpose of note taking and it is excellent for that with 1.25" margins. The paper is thick enough as long as you don't have a heavy hand. Additionally it has no cross references so you get to make your own. Great for a DIY Bible student.
I'm overall very pleased with this Bible. The paper is a little thin, but the line matching helps a lot. The cover is very limp, a little more than I'd prefer but that's really just my preference. Love the page layout.
