Snyder's SoapboxFruitland, IdahoAge: 35-44Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5A great Bible reading experience all around.October 17, 2018Snyder's SoapboxFruitland, IdahoAge: 35-44Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I received this set from Crossway some time ago, and wanted to use it for a while before writing a review. This review will differ from my others in the lack of a listing of the physical attributes like, paper weight, cover material, binding, font size, and layout, as all of that information and more can be found here readersbible.org The Reader's Bible is unlike any other Bible I've reviewed. This one is a six volume set, intended for undistracted reading. That is not to say that other Bibles aren't for reading. It is to say, that the focus of the layout, and construction was to be conducive to reading. This is necessarily at the exclusion of other purposes. For instance, study, easy reference, citation, and so on, as there are no chapter or verse numbers, no footnotes or cross references. There is a chapter index in the back of each volume. For older folks like myself, it is so different from Bibles we've used for such a long time, that it takes some getting used to. It isn't a bad experience, just different. I am a slow reader, and tend to study as I go. Other people can speed through the Bible, and retain information. When I simply read the Bible, I have to remain very conscious of what I am reading, and be diligent to properly regard it. When I start to read sometimes I start to drift. I find myself going back over the same section a few times, to make certain I have understood what I've read. With the Reader's set, you can read without getting side-tracked by interesting cross references, or footnotes. The first thing you notice is the volumes are constructed as a quality hardback, cloth covered book. Each volume has a marker ribbon, sewn spine, heavy paper, and easy to read font. Then while reading you start to experience what Crossway intended. You have a smooth progression through large sections of scripture. As you read, you don't make your decision on where to stop by chapter numbers, or section headings. Instead, you stop where it seems natural, usually at the end of an idea. As you read, you'll also notice that your eyes don't tire as easily due to the very thick paper, and font. (For all the stats follow the link in the first paragraph of the review.) With the longer sessions, you tend to cover more ground. I would not let my reading, exclude separate study of the Bible. Having the Reader's Set does force you to make time for reading, and study. I think I need that in my daily routine. Separating the two activities does seem beneficial.I think this set should hold up well, as long as they are cared for properly. I would be careful around moisture, as the pages are not coated, and would absorb water, finger oil, and dirt readily. Which brings me to my next suggestion, don't eat, drink coffee, or have dirty hands when reading this set. You will stain the cover, mess up the pages, and make it look messy.My final thought, is that they are nice to have when you want to sit and read God's word. My eyes aren't what they used to be, and even though the font isn't large, it is easier to read. I like the feel of them. It is an awful lot like reading a hardback novel in certain ways.
