my pastor was using this particular translation, the now out of print NIV 1984 version. it is new and looks great. wallet style w card slots is perfect size to keep in my purse or car door pocket to take w me to church. one drawback, because of the zipper/cover design, it wont stay open/ lay flat. you have to hold it open. and of course no ribbon, prob because it'd get caught in the zipper. because of great price, i also got one for my 13 yo daughter. she can fit her $ bills, gift cards, and itouch in it, but its a tight fit!
I love this Bible!!! But, I wish there is a ribbon marker included as stated in the product information.

I love this product. The idea of 2-in-1 in the form of a Bible and a clutch together is smart. The imitation leather used to make this clutch seems durable, and I like the idea of having a zipper since it helps protect the entire Bible from damage or stain. This Bible is not big or heavy, so it can be easily carried in a purse or a backpack. The font size is readable (at least for me). I was having a difficult time looking for a NIV 1984 Bible since it became uncommon after the release of the most current NIV 2011 version. The NIV 1984 Bibles that still exist today tend to be expensive. As a college student, I am glad this NIV 1984 Bible is affordable. I like everything stated in the Product Description/Information, except for one minor detail. The Product Information stated that a ribbon marker is provided in this Bible; ribbon marker is another reason why I wanted to get this Bible. However, after I opened the Bible, the ribbon marker was not there. I am fine to work around it by simply using a bookmark instead. I suggest correcting the Product Information regarding the ribbon marker, from "yes" to no. Lastly, although the tracking link provided did not work at all (perhaps, this could be a problem on the UPS/USPS's side), the product did not take too long to get delivered but exactly a week's time after shipping. If a ribbon marker is not something you care too much about and a NIV 1984 Bible with a zipper that protects is something you look for, I recommend getting this product.
