The Bible is lovely. The binding is soft and flexible and nice. The coloring is perfect.
The font is very small so I don't recommend this for an elderly person or one who does not see well close up. I would recommend this to a young friend or one without aging eyes - most likely a friend under 40.
This is a beautiful Bible, and I love it. It has really great examples of verses that are already journaled. My least favorite thing about it is that most of my favorite verses are already printed in the margins, sometimes on both sides of the page so there isn't space for me to do my own journaling. I wish the examples were printed in the back of the Bible for reference but leaving space for my work.
I am 20 years old, and this is the first bible I've ever purchased. I have a creative mind, so this bible was perfect for me. I see a lot of reviews saying the print is too small, but this wasn't a problem for me as I am near-sighted. The illustrations in this bible are beautiful, and can be found in the margins, and covering whole pages. There are also empty margins for journaling. I'm very glad I got the soft cover, also. Overall very happy with this purchase.
