Einar5 Stars Out Of 5A treasureJune 24, 2021EinarQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I can not recommend this Bible warm enough. Such quality and nice layout and design in every way. The hardback cover will of course not last forever with regular use, but if one is careful it can last for years even with daily use like mine. Maybe a little protective tape here and there in corners and edges, and it will last quite some time. Even the feel to the texture this hardcover is good in my opinion.
The Bible is large but does not feel as heavy as other study Bibles I have in the same size.
The paper is very thin but still fairly opaque. I find the pages easy to turn.
The text is always perfectly aligned on the page, and there is never an issue of text going down into the gutter. The Bible stays perfectly open even before Genesis. It is a delight to use.
After my taste Crossway use a font in their Bibles that feels a bit busy to my taste but apart from this it is highly readable. Good size of the Bible text, and readable size also in the notes.
The Bible notes are packed with information almost on every single verse of the Bible. What I like with the notes are that they present objective information and facts, not so much opinions from some authors. It is like a running encyclopedia. At the same time, it is Biblical conservative and not siting doubtful theologians and thinkers and contradicting opinions from all over the place. Only on difficult passages it shows some different ways of interpretation, in my opinion remarkable presented. It is faith building and masterly done.
The maps and charts that follow the text are amazing. The charts are just there when you need them. The small maps that follow the text are simple but so nicely designed and easy to read and understand at a glance. I just wish they would have put in even more maps for even more geographical mentions in the text. A little drawback is that I have not found any alphabetical index to the sites in the running maps. This would really have been helpful.
Be aware of one thing, the large print edition is not a full color edition as the standard size study Bible. The maps and charts are nice but of some kind of two colors edition. I asked Crossway if they have plans printing the large print edition in full color, but the answer was no. Another difference to the standard size edition is that the large print edition has two column Bible text. The standard edition has single column. I really wish they published also the large print editdion in full colors, but even when not I prefer the large print since it is so readable. I highly recommend this Bible to all kind of readers. Non-believers, believers, learned, not learned, young, old, male, female, to all readers of English in all countries. I myself am a Norwegian, and I have made sure all my family members have an edition of this Bible.
cd2 Stars Out Of 5ESV Large Print Study BibleJune 7, 2021cdQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 2I have mixed comments about the leather large print study bible. The interior of the bible is great - the text size is easily readable and the study notes are wonderful. If I were rating the inside of the bible, I'd give it 4-stars. However, the exterior covering is absolutely terrible. The leather quality is borderline unacceptable. It looks dull and feels really cheap. I would have been better off buying a hard cover version.

cheri1 Stars Out Of 5Extremely Disappointed in CrosswayJanuary 23, 2021cheriThis Bible was printed in China!
The first signature and opening pages are crooked! I did not notice this until I had written on some pages. I can not tell you how angry I am, at this time, to know this Bible was printed by communist China! No Christian products have any place being produced by a communist country that persecutes Christians. This is very sad. Crossway has made very poor marketing decisions. I checked my Macarthur Study Bible, it is NOT printed in China.
It also was represented to be in color. It is not.
