I am glad that John who made the video found a cover that was right for him. I hesitated ordering this product after watching the video.However as the dimensions were closest to my husbands bible,I did order it ;in the brown, and am very happy that I made that choice.It is a nice piece of workmanship.
To start, I have the NIV Life Application Study Bible Bonded Leather, Black Thumb Indexed Bible. In the section that helps you find a cover for this Bible it directs you to the Crimson Truth XX Large model, if that is your choice of cover's. I actually ordered the X Large model in Black. It is at least an inch to large all around. I exchanged it for the Large model. For the Bible I have mentioned, it fits the bible like a glove.
Always check your Bible's "true" mesurements before ordering a cover. And try to get a cover that is "at least" close in measurement to what you want. I have found out that the Crimson Truth stated measurements are at least a half to more than an inch than stated.
After getting the Large size, my new Bible fits in it like it should. The cover seems to be a good quality of leather. Others have had quite different reviews. This is a quality cover, (Once you get the right size.....)
I first ordered the antique brown, but returned it, it wasn't the rustic finish in the pictures, but rather a hideous mottled coloring and a fake plastic like feel rather than leather. I wanted to give Crimson truth a second opportunity, being that they're a Christian company and made in the USA. I then tried the black, it had a solid coloring which seemed to be an improvement, however, I was let down again. It too had a fake plastic look/sheen and plastic touch rather than leather characteristics. It seems somewhat durable, but the quality of leather is poor. I did a youtube video of it, search mjohn11 Leather bible cover review. I got the Bob Siemon cover instead, it was a better cover for only a few dollars more!
Bought the cover for my mother in-law for Christmas and she loved it. The Bible fit perfect and with all the extra places for pens and paper she was very pleased, even gave her the ads that came with it to order for church. Thanks you saved 1 of my presents for her.
