I have only owned this bible for two months and can say the content is good but the quality is terrible. I have found ink blotches throughout the pages, the glue on the binding is overdone and the pages tear easy. I can not see why so many people give this a five star rating. The words of Christ are not in red, the note fonts are hard to read and the cover sticks up. I will not waste my hard earned money on another Thomas Nelson product again.
It holds God's word, it has got to be great. This bible is a great study bible, great first bible, great to a collection of bibles. I like the topical index feature, the translation, the appearance, large print and just about everything else.
Great Bible! My favorite and the most literal translation with excellent in-depth study notes! I do agree the study notes themselves could have been a little bigger and darker, but they are still readable. I would have liked the genuine leather instead of the bonded, but it was not available with thumb indexing, and I would love for the words of Christ to have been in red. But with that said, I still love this Bible and would highly reccomend it to anyone!
