I was delighted to be able to order one, and am very pleased with it.
GZimmyMankato, MNAge: 55-65Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5Great Bible, but stay away from bonded leatherFebruary 23, 2013GZimmyMankato, MNAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I bought this Bible back when the 2011 NIV first came on the market, so I've had it long enough to see how it will wear. I have to say that overall it is an excellent, if not outstanding, format. The text is nearly perfect in size and layout, and the black-letter is so much easier to read than the silly red-letter. The notes and cross-references are also in a good size font for those of us with aging eyes. Zondervan does need to fix their reference system, because it's maddeningly difficult to distinguish between the cross-reference letters and the text notes letters. I'm always looking for a text note that isn't there. But very few manufacturers do have a good system for that. The paper is thin, but strong. I have had very little trouble with it aside from a little wrinkling of pages, particularly at the front and back of the Bible. The silver page edging seems durable. I don't care for the appearance and would prefer gold, but that's a matter of personal preference. But I do wish Zondervan would give us that option instead of making black Bibles with ONLY silver edging. The Bible lays flat as advertised. I appreciate the Smyth-sewn binding in such an inexpensive Bible. The biggest weakness I have found is the bonded leather cover. In about two years of frequent, sometimes heavy use, it is nearly falling apart. I have had far better success with genuine leather and the new soft-feel imitation leathers for durability. Stay away from the bonded leather! If you must buy cheap, buy the imitation leather. Better yet, pop for the premium genuine leather.
RichardMcMinnville, TNAge: Over 65Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5The quality is good and print is easy to readJuly 9, 2012RichardMcMinnville, TNAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I had two NIV's picked out, one of which was the NIV 2011, not the one I wanted, but it was the one I ordered by mistake. After it came I saw my error and turned around and order the same font and style in the NIV 1984 version which I prefer. I am enjoying it; the print is comfortable to read, the pages thin, but stout for underlining and sufficient margins for notes. Just wished it was available in genuine leather
