This bible was a gift to my sister-in-law. I selected it for her because I purchased my own copy a few years ago and I absolutely cherish mine so I know she'll treasure hers as well. It's special for a lot of reasons. It has a lovely cover that is soft to the touch. It's in large print which makes it very grandma friendly. There is a clear plastic envelope adhered to the inside of the front cover for photos or momentos. There are special pages toward the front to enter grandchildren's names with notes. There are many wonderful stories throughout this bible written by other grandmothers that invoke thought, meditation and lessons learned. But I have to say that my favorite feature is the encircled "Focus on Grandchildren" prayers that we grandmothers can tailor to our different grandchildren depending on what's going on in their lives at the time. Search no more. This bible is the one!
I guess i was in too much of a hurry. i will be returning this bible. my last large print niv 3 lbs. this one is 4 lbs. i am not a grandmother, so having grandmother's bible printed on the front totally inappropriate. all the little suggestions for lessons with tips for younger or older grandchildren a waste of time. the page showed the starting chapter and verse, but not the ending verse for that page. concordance on subjects, not words. several pages taken up to name who wrote the little stories, including what else they had written, so they got a free sales plug.
After gifting this Bible to my Best Friend a few years ago for Christmas after the birth of her first Grandchild and had a chance to look through it beforehand i knew i wanted one when my time came, and this last Christmas i received mine from my Husband as we are awaiting the birth of our first Granddaughter. I have already begun to use it now and am praying the Prayers for little Maxie Marie as well as her Parents and my other children . I love this Bible and will strongly recommend it to others. It's a wonderful Blessing!
