I purchased the Burgundy genuine leather Holman Giant print reference Bible near the end of June. The quality of materials is superb, and C.B.D.'s low price on this genuine leather Bible is amazing. The print is clear and sharp. The KJV text generally accords with the wording and English spellings of the common printings from Oxford which is quite close to the Cambridge printings. The leather requires some break-in time so the buyer needs to be patient, but after about three weeks of daily use it is becoming more flexible. The maps, concordance, and other features are nice. I have no complaints about this Holman Bible.
I would love to give Holman a high score for Quality in print ,and contents.Love the Parables And Miracles of CHRIST being there. My only complaint is the binding is stiff and un plyable,feels more like bonded leather and smells like it.
My lower rating is because C.B.D. advertising differs from the web sight with orders.The products were larger in size and the page count was off.I found this to be true on 2 products on the same page. I do not like getting a differant product from the catalog using the same order number on the internet. So be ware untill they keep their web sight in step with the catalog.
I would give their customer service 5 stars,very friendly and helpful. I am returning the Holman and going for a Nelson. Hope this one is real leather. C.B.D. has awsome prices and their shipping dept is fast. Over all a very good place to buy. If they fix the internet flaws or catalog it will be even better..... OH yea..the internet size and page count was the real one...perhaps the catalog is to blame....
Easy to read print. Good recommended cross-references placed in large print at the end of selected verses. The book is great looking and sturdy. I find that I reach for this bible quite frequently over several others because of the print and the references.
This bible is just amazing! it defiently met my expectations, especially when i engraved my name onto the front of it. It turned out gorgeous. It is cheap especially compared to what i find here. Its all geniune and its pages are really nice. The only thing i was disapointed in was the thumb index, well i dont know about others but my thumb could defiently not fit it, way to small and squashy and to get here took a very long time
Overall, i would recommend this to even my best of friends. It really is a nice geniune bible!
