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.
I have used the NASB for several years and I like its accuracy however after buying and reading the ESV I have to say I like the readability of the ESV better. They are both accurate word for word translations but I like the way the ESV flows while reading and studying the scripture. This bible is a fantastic buy ....the binding and leather cover are nice and it lays flat when opened I dont think you will be sorry buying this bible.
