This is a terrific Bible which has a good print size (not too large that it becomes difficult to read) which is great for me as I like to use cross-references and they are easy to find in the center column. As I like to add my own cross-references that my studies might suggest, I find the outer margins far too slim in which to write these but get around it by carrying a Journal along with the Bible in a Bible Bag/Case, which I have divided into the books as they appear in Scripture. The numerous appendixes are extremely useful. For me, the Bible 'feels' good to hold (some covers can make me feel like I need to constantly lick my fingers) and the texture is smooth. The page and print are good to view and the binding, again from my own point of view, is quiet tough - being new, time may indeed prove to the contrary but we'll just have to wait and see.
Overall, I highly recommend it and even my brother has requested a copy after seeing my one.
This King James Version bible has a "Giant Print" font that is very easy to read, and the bonus of Center Column References makes it easy to compare relevant verses of Scripture. It includes the Words of Christ in Red, but it does not have a marker ribbon. It is a basic bible, nothing fancy, but that is exactly what I wanted. It is a perfect bible choice to leave in the pew at church so I can have it available while I read from my other more contemporary versions of the bible. The price through Christian Book Distributors is a real bargain and if I had it to do over again I would include my name being printed on the front cover. Great inexpensive bible!
I purchase "median cost" KJV Bibles for gifts to people that I believe will read them. I found this Bible to be a very good purchase, as even people with normal vision enjoy the ease of larger print reading. I like to encourage new believers to "camp out" in the Scriptures before moving into commentary and "helps". Having Scripture answer your questions is vital to one's faith. I would have given this Bible a 100% rating if it had included the usual editorial symbols, such as the "star" that denotes prophesies of Jesus (OT) and fulfilled prophesies of Jesus (NT). dg
