This was the "ultimate" bible that I had decided to get for myself after many years of reading bibles made with cheaper binding and materials. I was not dissapointed. The goatskin and fine paper make it "floppy" which I find pleasing. It is the perfect size - not too small and not too big, isn't very heavy, and the 9 point font to me is just right. Like many bible students I started with study bibles - such as Ryrie and Scofield, but after years of study I now like a clean bible with references and study tools but no notes. I do not have the financial means to buy this kind of bible easily - so it was a big decision but I am happy with it.
My eyesight is very poor. I have Gluecoma in both eyes and am almost blind in my right eye. When I got my Concord 9 point print bible I was troubled. It seemed like such small print. I'd never be abled to read it. I wondered why such an expensive bible was so poorly made. It wasn't the bible that was the issue nor the seemingly small print. It was me. Cambridge in all their genius meticulously designed this bible.
First the 9 point print is bold making this small print very pleasurable and readable for people like me with very poor eyesight. Second the bible had margins with just the right placement making the print visible without even adjusting the gutter to read the print to the end of a line. lastly and most helpful is the size. It couldn't be designed better. It's not heavy. It's just the right size to hold in your hands.
I think Cambridge designed the perfect size so it would be convenient to read for space and content. I was leary when I first got this bible. After I gave it a chance it's the best designed bible with the best content one could have. The Kings James Version of God's Word.
