Rabin4 Stars Out Of 5Very Nice butJuly 28, 2017RabinQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 3I was looking for a simple, large print, ESV Bible to use for teaching and preaching. This Bible met every need except one... the text is organized by paragraphs rather than by verse. That feature (for many it is a feature) was obscure in the description of the Bible. Only for that reason did I reduce the rating from excellent to good. I would recommend to Bible to those that prefer that feature.
The Angel5 Stars Out Of 5ESV Large Print Personal Size BibleDecember 10, 2016The AngelQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The ESV is an excellent translation from Hebrew and Greek, better than the NIV or the NASB. I had not read it before and I must admit I'm surprised by its readability and translation value. I have many Bible versions in my library, and after using the ESV at home and from the pulpit for a month I can honestly say it's the best translation and version I've ever used.
nano5 Stars Out Of 5ESV Large Print Personal Size BibleJanuary 16, 2015nanoQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This Bible fits my needs. The print is very readable for Large Print. I like the 2 columns. Those make the reading easier. The Bible was a good price. I have a Large Print Study Bible which I like too. But it is heavy. That one I keep at home. This personal size one is easy to take to Bible studies outside the home.
Randy A BrownTNAge: 35-44Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5Great reading BibleApril 10, 2014Randy A BrownTNAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Cover and Binding
Not all imitation leather covers are of the same quality. Other imitation leathers have a cheap look and feel, but Crossway's TruTone is one of the best imitation leather's that I've seen. It feels durable and elegant. It is not floppy. I prefer this because it's easier to hold in one hand. If you're looking for a floppy cover then TruTone is not what you're looking for. I prefer it to bonded leather and I even like it better than some genuine leathers that I've seen. It is perimeter stitched and the lining looks like vinyl. I love the mahogany color. The spine is embossed without any foil, which I love the look of.
This one has a sewn binding. It has a little trouble lying flat in Genesis. It will break in over time. One thing I am concerned about it how long the binding will last.
Paper and Print
The paper is nice but it does have show-through in the poetry sections. This is not noticeable in the other books because of the line-matching. It's distracting but only in the poetry sections.
The font is where this Bible shines. It is 12-point and it looks like a 13-point leading. There is plenty enough room for underlining. It is nice and sharp. I would call it semi-bold. It's consistent throughout and a joy to read. The red-letter is about a medium shade. It's also consistent with no fading.
Size and Layout
For me, the size of this Bible is perfect. It is 8.75 x 5.75 x 1.5 and feels right in my hand. It is easy to hold in one hand.
This has a double-column layout in paragraph format. Section headings are placed throughout the text. Footnotes and references are located at the bottom of the page and are keyed to the text with numbers and letters. References are mostly found in the New Testament, but there are not many of them. There are more footnotes than references. Many pages have neither. OT quotes and poetry are in verse format.
Every book starts on its own page. I wish all Bibles did this as this is aesthetically pleasing and gives valuable writing space.
The concordance is 56 pages and it says it contains almost 14,000 entries and 300,000 verses. There are 57 entries for Ã¢â¬ËGod'. It is large enough to be useful in Bible study or quick referencing.
There is only one ribbon. It is long and is a shade of mahogany that is slightly lighter than the cover. it looks nice and is usable, though it is on the skinny side.
This Bible is a joy to read. It has become my favorite ESV reading Bible. It is free from distractions and still has a few helps with footnotes and section headings that don't get in the way of my reading. The line-matching does greatly improve readability. There is more show-through in poetry sections than I like, but that's a minor complaint. I would have liked to have maps. Overall, this is a nice edition of the ESV for anyone looking for large print without too many distractions. I highly recommend it as a reading Bible.
Crossway Publishing provided this Bible free for review. I was not required to give a positive review - only an honest review.
theoWAAge: 35-44Gender: male3 Stars Out Of 5Mixed feelingsMarch 13, 2014theoWAAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 2I was really looking forward to the ESV Large Print Personal size Bible, as it has the same exact size for the book, and font as a NKJV Bible I read from for many years (my church started using the ESV in 2009, so I switched partially to the ESV).
Crossway designs Bibles differently than all other publishers though, in that the same font size takes up more space on the page (not sure why/how?).
The result is that there are less words per line of text, and in this particular Bible there are on average ~7 words per line per column on prose sections, a bit less in poetic sections, making the eye have to move up/down and side-to-side a lot.
Other than that, the font size is perfect, nice and bold, super readable, and the paper and sewn binding are of excellent quality.
Crossway is the #1 publisher for mass market Bible quality, but also making some top notch luxury versions.
