We have a young man who joined the service from our church. We purchased this as a gift to him and as a way for him to keep God's word close to him. I have one and I enjoy all the great things they've added.
I liked the old style that was real leather and had the clasp closer and I know it is. Not your fault but the insignia is not the same, shame on the US Gov.. I have ordered many of these bibles for a military bible program. That I administer at my church.
We bought this bible for our son. I was hesitant to buy it because of the picture. It didn't look "grown up" but after reading the reviews, I decided I would give it a try. I was not disappointed. The picture was the box of the bible. The bible itself was very grown up looking and we were very pleased. The quality was good, the size compact but not too small and the translation was great, too. Very pleased.
