I so love my new NIV. First one I had was hardback and I "used it too death"! I've kept it together with packaging tape for a while! This bible feels like silk in my hand. The leather is the best. I would highly recommend.
My dissatisfaction lies with the personalization of my beautiful bible. It looks as if it's going uphill.
When I got this amazing bible, I was really suprise with how high the quality of it is. The smell of genuine leather turn me right on and I just fell in love with it and the words of God inside. It is my farorite book to read before I go to bed. The price was awsome also. Great great buy.
