mario_86t1 Stars Out Of 5Unsatisfied poorly madeSeptember 5, 2019mario_86tGave it another try thinking it was going to improve quality wise but this specific top grain finish is terrible. Love the bible, but the cutting edges are uneven, really short and lifted. I have replaced the edges due to really poor handcraft/work on making this bible.
Rick5 Stars Out Of 5Johnny Mac Study BibleMay 15, 2019RickQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Not exhaustive but certainly informative enough for the layman and teachers of Sunday School, bible studies and small group study leaders. Includes most of what is in his single volume new testament commentary, but by no means matches the wealth of information contained in the multi-volume commentary he put out. It is doctrinally sound, but doesn't hit on every single bible verse, it rather focuses on the most important passages. It is as good of a study bible as is out there, better than most and I say this as one who owns most of the ones currently available.
Michael1 Stars Out Of 5The Top Grain Leather Edition is Poorly MadeMarch 20, 2019MichaelQuality: 1Value: 2Meets Expectations: 1I love the Macarthur Study Bible and love the ESV, but this particular edition was a huge disappointment to me. I own 10 to 12 Crossway Bibles and have found that they are generally of outstanding quality. In this case however, the Bible is poorly made and carelessly bound. For example the last map is partially glued down to the facing page, making it generally unusable. I called Crossway to explain the problems with this Bible and followed up with an email showing them pictures of the problems since they are known to stand behind their products. In this case they told me that they did not consider a map being partially glued down to be a manufacturing defect and told me they would not replace this Bible for me.
Eugene5 Stars Out Of 5Awesome bibleMarch 13, 2019EugeneThis is a great bible! The leather binding is smooth and comfortable! The size is just right, not to large for everyday carry! The paper is not so thin that there is bleedthrough when marking! Overall, i highly recommend this bible!
The Expert1 Stars Out Of 5Top Grain LeatherJanuary 18, 2019The ExpertQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1The Macarthur Study Bible is superb--without question.
The Top Grain version is not.
Two good things-2016 text-a true leather liner
The edge of the cover needs to be sewn like the ESV Study Bible in Cowhide. It grabs the pages in a very annoying way.
My cover also has a gash in it-will be returning.
The leather itself is quite thin. In other words this is not a "quality" or "premium" cover. Save the money and buy two of the trutone or genuine leather editions-one for you and one to give away.
