I also have the genuine leather edition of this Bible but after several years of careful use the leather split along the binding so I needed to replace it. This Bible with the cowhide cover should last much longer and it feels fantastic. Being now in my late 50's my eyes, although not terrible, don't adjust quickly, so I need the larger print for when I'm teaching or preaching. I can easily focus on the people and then drop to the text and have no problems refocusing on it as it is nice and large. I really like the fact that everything is still in the same place on the page as my old Bible, although the page headings have changed. I had considered having my old one recovered but it would have cost at least three times what it cost for this new Bible. All in all, a wonderful purchase and I can't get over how soft the cover is to the touch.
Very happy with the quality so far! The print size is great. There are small changes I would have liked, such as starting each book on a new page. More titles like my old NIV. Overall I'm very happy. The engraving looks great. I ordered the same, but different colors for the whole family.
SIZE= Not too big but not too small (excellent blend of portable and classy)... BINDING= High quality (soft leather)... FONT= Very readable... TRANSLATION= Reliable (KJV)... OVERALL= Beautiful bible (great for any age/gender); Lifetime Guarantee= Worth the price
