The binding is also lovely. Unfortunatly the thumb indexing is a strange shape and the text on it is tiny. In addition the last 2 pages of Luke and the first page of John were fused together by the indexing tab. I had to cut the entire tab out to read those pages. I will need to add large print tabs to my bible to be able to easily find the books without needing to bring this heavy bible up to my eyes. I am sorely diappointed that my daughter paid more for this bible to have to then spend the time and money afixing tabs. If I had know these things I would not have asked for the indexing. All in all I do like this bible but my vision is not good so unless they make the thumb indexes thumb shaped again I would buy it without. You might also like to know that each tab is for 3 books so you still endind up searching longer for each book. My bible has the leather cover in burgundy which is beautiful and it lays flat as well which I do like.
Love this Bible. It has large text and is easy to read. I use it when teaching children, and it is easy for them to read the text too. It is a fairly large Bible and a little heavy, but meets my needs.
I wanted to get a gift for my parents that would be an accurate, easy to read translation. Since their eyesight isn't as good as it used to be, I chose a larger type size bible for them. The good news is that they love it (I actually got one for each of them) and they read it every day.
I recommend the Holman Christian Standard Bible and ChristianBook.com!
It was an accident that I ordered this particular Bible. Not that I didn't mean to get the Holman Christian Standard Version, I really wanted to try it, but I didn't realize what size the "Super Giant Print" actually meant! At first,
I was almost embarrassed to be seen with what looked like a coffee-table version of the Bible, but now I absolutely love it. At the end of the day, when my eyes are tired, I can lay it on my lap and very easily read with no strain to my eyes at all. I really enjoy this version as well, it reads much like we talk today and gives a whole new perspective of God's word.
