This is one big Bible in every way. It is heavy and like almost carrying a city phone book but no complaints, as it is filled with information, charts, maps, pictures and notes. It is like carrying a Bible and Bible Dictionary all in one volume. Suggestions: Darker print (my peeve with NIV Bibles) and a longer Concordance. The NIV has kept the Masoretic Text for the OT which I prefer. But I still wish they kept the Received Text in the New Testament at least as a standard along with the text they used. Recommended with aforementioned suggestions and a KJV or equivalent handy.
I purchased this Bible after thoroughly shopping different products and a great deal of prayer. This Bible is truly a great resource. It is a little bit thicker than I thought it would be, but the information contained within is awesome. It will be an even greater treat to study God's Word with this resource at my fingertips.
