And yes, I realize it's a particuliarly inexpensive edition, but even in a cheap book I expect to open the book for the first time and not feel concern about the pages falling out.
Firstly, the back flap of this book says: What if we made it [the Bible] a community experiencemore like a book club than a Bible Study? Okay, I can get behind that concept; the Bible is often a big, intimidating book to those new to the faith.
So while I do like what they were going for with this four-part set (I bought both the New Testament and The Writings volumns and found both to have the same issues), I think they failed in the execution. If you remember the old "book club editions" you used to see, these are very similiar.
1. The font used is very boxy, and generally distracting. Not at all like the font you would find in any modern novel, and therefore defeating of the book clud edict.
2. The binding is poor, poor, POOR. It appears to be sown, although not in the good way you may be thinking. The pages open in clumps, threads exposed in the lage gaps between the clumps. There are creaking noises when turning the pages.
3. The pages are printed on a fairly thick paper, which would be a plus if the paper wasn't so glossy and slick. Again, modern novels don't use this kind of paper.
Overall, a dissapionting edition, but I'll donate them to the local thrift store where perhaps they may find their way into the hands of someone in need of God's Word. For God works in all things, even imperfect editions of his Holy Scriptures. Amen.
