The NIV is my favorite version. Being older now, my eye sight is not quite what it used to be. This large print is great because I am not straining. Its easy to read when sitting in church where the lights are not as bright. There is lots of room to underline. I love that it lays flat! And of course, I love the color purple! Its easy to carry and the cover feels very nice. Great Bible book!!
The Bible is beautiful and well made, but "large print" it was not. If you have someone who truly needs large print they sell "giant" and "extra giant" print that I saw, might be worth ordering these instead. For an average person who just wants to be more comfortable reading the Bible it is a worthy contender! Also listed as "navy" color cover but it is actually black.
This bible is very nice for our Japanese also. I believe the explanation is true that ' not simply adapt an existing English version of the Bible but to start from scratch with the best available manuscripts in the original languages.' by the version informaiton of the NIV 2011. I can study the Bible using this and my Japanese bible.
To be honest I was disappointed to find the cover color is different from the image of your web site and the description of the 'plum . But it is ease to read and to carry. I will love for long time.
The biggest Christian book store in Japan decided to sell this item by my recommendation.
I could save about $30 by buying it thouth the Chirstian.com, thank you!
