I purchased this because I wanted to be able to compare the KJV and NIV without having to use two separate Bibles. This is perfectly suited for that purpose. The notes are a great addition and the concordance/dictionary is quite large. The only drawback to this Bible is that the print is smaller than what I expected it to be. However, this is not an issue as far as being 'readable' and I enjoy the parallel layout. I think this would help anyone who has trouble understanding the language in the KJV. It also would be a helpful study aid to anyone who teaches Sunday School.
This was disappointing but probably due to the fact it was hardcover and the text inside reads like a textbook instead of a Bible. Maybe due to the fact there are no red letters for Words of Christ. I would suggest getting the leather style and it may then feel more like a Bible.
