My husband recently go back into serious Bible study so i thought I'd replace his old Bible with a new one. the idea was he could take it to. church. this is a great Bible but i didnt check it out well enough. it weighs about 10 lbs! not exactly easy to carry in and hold while visiting and drinking a cup of coffee. lesson learned...easier to get the right Bible if you can see them and touch them. I'll be using this for preparation as a Bible teacher myself!
This is an excellent edition of the NIV Study Bible to carry to church, as it's not as heavy or bulky as the standard or large print editions. One thing I would change is the lightness of the print--it's a little bit challenging to read it with inadequate lighting.
Beautiful Bible; black bonded leather, silver edges, color pictures with excellent notes and historical introductions to each book. Love this NIV Bible. It has been a comfort going through a difficult time in my life.
