I like everything about this Bible except the quality of the paper. "Ghosting" is a problem and I find it distracting to be able to see the notes, cross references, charts and maps from the back side of the paper as I am trying to read.
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!
