I just received my hardcover edition and look forward to using it. I have been looking for a Bible like this for a long time. This is a Bible that holds much information for the person who wants to use it to its fullest. Be patient as there are many helps and many ways to study. The maps are beautiful. The book is larger and heavier and the paper is thinner so choose your writing implement well if you are going to write it in (but if the paper were thicker then the book might become too heavy!) Words of Christ are in red and, for me, I find this very important for any Bible I use. If you have a sincere desire to learn how the root words are translated, this is the Bible for you. Use it and allow the Holy Spirit to speak to you through your studies.
My daughter introduced me to this Bible. The price was much cheaper than my first one. I am very please. I liked the Hebrew and Greek concordance. Having an understanding of a word from both languages is very helpful. This is a good Bible to have.
This is my second one. I misplaced my first one and it was welled used and by the time it was found, I Had already purchase this one. So I decided to keep it. Will use it on Sunday and use the old one for studying at home.
The pages are pretty thin and when talking about the Lord and Jesus it says he and him, not He and Him (just one of my pet peeves though). Love the bible though and the real (not topical) concordance in the back for hebrew and greek.
