jcr875 Stars Out Of 5Very PleasedJuly 26, 2015jcr87Quality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5I bought this as a gift for my teenage brother and had it imprinted.I must say it is a very good looking Bible. i like the old and new Testament reference tabs being different colors. There is only one for every 3 books, but for a slim-line that is not bad. It has words of Christ in Red and a good reference section. I actually own an ESV that looked similiar to the pictures but this one is completely different and much nicer, so I was pleasently suprised. I had also been unhappy with a previous imprinting, but I am very pleased with this one. It looked great. This may be about the coolest looking slim-line I have ever seen.

Swanny52Dallas, TexasAge: 55-65Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5Portable and ReadableOctober 15, 2014Swanny52Dallas, TexasAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5First of all, I must point out that, as of the day of this review, the excerpts listed above are not from this Bible. If you want a view of what this Bible REALLY looks like, check the excerpts for the non-indexed edition (ISBN 978-1-4336-0546-8, CBD stock number WW605468).
The font is very easy to read, although in some places the spacing between words is so tight that words seem to run together. This was somewhat distracting at first, but I soon grew accustomed to it. The pages are thin but opaque enough that there is no significant "show through" from the other side of the page.
The Bible is soft, flexible and light. I can easily hold it open in one hand (my hands are of normal, or perhaps even slightly less-than-normal, size).
I really like the way that Holman did the red letters for this edition. They are more of a brownish red, so they don't glare out at you.
The thumb index tabs are black for the Old Testament books, and red for the New Testament books.
The center-column references are arranged such that those for the left column of the text are grouped at the top of the page, and those for the right column of text are grouped at the bottom.
This Bible does not have the variant readings or literal renderings found in some editions of the KJV. Even in Hebrews 4:8, where Joshua is obviously meant instead of Jesus, this is not flagged in the margin. "The Epistle Dedicatory" and "The Translators to the Reader" are not included.
Although this is not a "Study Bible," it does have a few nice "helps." There is a glossary of terms used in the King James Bible, as well as a concordance, a simplified Harmony of the Gospels, tables of Jesus' parables, miracles and predictions, and prophecies of the Old Testament and of Jesus' second coming.
For those who prefer a KJV with the older spellings associated with the 1769 edition, this Bible is very close. In the spot-checking that I did, I noticed that the British spellings are retained ("colours" instead of "colors," "vapour" instead of "vapor," etc.). "Saviour" is retained over "Savior." "Alway," where it was used instead of "always," has been retained. "Throughly" was left in every place I spot-checked except Genesis 11:3, where it was changed to "thoroughly." We have "shewbread" on the table, and the temple that Solomon built is "exceeding magnifical" (1 Chron. 22:5) and "wonderful great" (2 Chron. 2:9). In the places where I spot-checked, Sion, where used, has not been changed to Zion, and where the spellings of proper names differed in the New Testament (i.e., Noe for Noah, Esaias for Isaiah, Elias for Elijah, etc.), they have not been changed.
Our copy did contain one defect. The thumb cut for the concordance cut into the text of the last few pages of Revelation. This Bible has narrow side margins to begin with, so if you really don't need the thumb indexing, you might want to consider just getting a non-indexed copy.
Overall, I am giving this Bible 4 stars. It is great for carry - I have been taking it to work to read during lunchtime and breaks. If it contained variant readings, it would be perfect - even if it meant making it a little thicker.
