Ken Woodruff5 Stars Out Of 5I love this BibleMay 13, 2012Ken WoodruffQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have re-discovered the Living Bible after I "outgrew it" 37 years ago. What a mistake to leave this translation work, which opens the meaning of the word of God. I had gone to the NAS, which is great for accuracy, but sometimes fails to "unpack" the meaning of the text. The New Living Translation supposedly replaced the original Living Bible, but sadly lost much of this "unpacking" ability as it tried to become more literal. The Amplified Bible is good for its "unpacking" ability, but not as good at drawing ones' soul into the text.
As to quality of printing and binding, I think this TuTone Imitation Leather edition is wonderful. If feels like real leather, although a bit stiffer (but OK). The pages are just a trace thicker than I would prefer, but highlighting does not bleed through the pages when I use Z-Brite highlighters. The text is a very nice size - not too small or too large. The paper has just a bit of slickness to it, making it feel like a nice Bible. The paper is slightly brown instead of pure white, which is OK. I would prefer a slightly whiter paper for perfection. This edition is much preferred over the original hard back binding. This Bible is neither extremely compact, nor overly large and "clunky"... a good size for a primary Bible.
I highly recommend this edition to anyone wanting a Bible that will pull you into the text and make you regret that you have to end your Bible reading time for the day. I remember the evenings I read it as a new believer (1973), when Bible Time was like eating candy. I just couldn't get enough, and it led me to read through the entire word of God in seven months, giving me a tremendous foundation for the spiritual life God had for me. May it do the same for you and to those to whom you give it as a gift.
