Roberts/w WashingtonAge: Over 65Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5Beautiful, well bound , 1st century study Bible.August 6, 2015Roberts/w WashingtonAge: Over 65Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a good looking, well bound copy of the 1st century NIV study Bible.There is a lot of information about the way people lived, worked, and worshipped in the time just after Christ Jesus was crucified. There are a lot of beautiful pictures, and study helps. The imitation leather is ok, but I don't care much for the long strap that you have to wrap around the bible to hold the cover closed. Velcro, or a good old fashioned snap would have worked nicely. I still give this Bible 5 stars, as it is a great value from CBD, and a Great copy of GODS'
WONDERFUL WORD .
