I absolutely love this study bible. I 100% recommend that you buy this, and read it! I have many many bibles but none I cherish as much as this one. Mine was the fake leather and it was black not gray like the picture but I still like it. The cover is not super thin or flimsy. The book is a decent size but not huge by any means. The pages are not super thin and not thick either. Minimal see through effect. The print is a decent size and the ink they used is very dark black, making it easy on my eyes. I usually prefer large print but this one is printed well. For the cheap price I bought this for (like $23), it is an absolute steal of a deal. If you are hungry for the living God, you will not be disappointed in buying this!
Nice Bible. Print is a decent size. Maybe need to cut down on a bit on the commentary as it can be a little overwhelming when the commentary takes up more space than the scriptures. This makes it a very heavy Bible to carry around even just in the house. As a result I'm afraid it won't get used much. If you are going to leave it on a desk then it will work for you.
I bought this Bible due to two reasons. First, I wanted an ESV version. Second, because the price was outstanding. The notes are very insightful and the overall appearance of the Bible is beautiful. The only downside to it so far has been that the pages stick together more than other Bibles I have purchased. Overall I am very happy with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone!
i actually have the burgundy one with roses but the first one I order was the trutone one but they are the same in quality. I really like the notes. Just a small part of the notes on Psalm 23: As the compassionate character of God is revealed in this precious psalm, we are prepared to see how the steadfast love of the final sacrificial Lamb enables wayward sheep to dwell with a holy God. He was the scapegoat who carried away the sins of God's people to provide goodness and mercy. Next, one of the other things I like is there is three blank pages in the front and five in the back for notes. The margins are not very wide but anough for small symbols. The paper quality is good. I use a blue and yellow gel-highlighter Bible-Hi-Glider(which I buy at cbd) and you can't see it on the other side. The line matching is well done. Some of the headings that are done darker bleeds through a little. The craftsmanship of the binding on the burgundy one is gorgeous, and the trutones are very nice also.There's plenty of cross reference to make this a good study Bible. The print is very readable the spacing between the lines I think helps with that. It's not large print but it is larger than their study Bible. It is quite easy to hold, it fits in your hand well and is not heavy. It has become my favorite Bible and it's the one I give out now. It's printed in the usa. At the amazing price you don't have anything to lose but a whole lot to gain!
Superb price by Christianbook, the leather is about the softest leather I've felt on a bible. Nicely sewn binding, very good maps, very comprehensive concordance. This bible's study notes remind me of how I used to feel when I was little and laying in my mother's arms listening to a bedtime story, they just take you to the most comfortable experiential place you could be in Christ.
