I purchased the Bible with the green imitation leather cover. I have had it for 2 years and so far it has held up nicely. This Bible is for a serious student of the Word. I actually like that there is no commentary on the bottom of the page telling you what it means. There are plenty of step by step instructions telling you how to study each book and it is much more meaningful when you see it on your own. I highly recommend this Bible!
I purchased an imperfect bible so I knew it was going to be "slightly used". The website said it was misprinted. However, when I received the bible I realized that the bible had been used and the previous owner got some of the pages wet. This should have been flagged on the website, unless it just slipped through the cracks which is possible. Putting all this aside, I am discouraged by the quality of this product.
The inductive study approach is designed for people who are going to use their bibles. The poor construction of this bible will not facilitate the use; It will simple fall apart under duress. The paper is so thin that bleed through is inevitable. The pages are glued rather than sown into the binding which not stand up to the stress of continued use. The genuine leather is cheap, more like bonded leather. It is unfortunate because the layout is great. I will be returning this bible. They never should have changed the old format... cheaper materials equal cheaper quality.
