I bought my bible about 2 years ago. I wanted to wait a while before I do my review on the product, so that by then I would have used the bible for a while and so provide a more detailed review about what I like and what I don't like.
**What I like:
I love that you can get your bible personalized in Chrisitianbook.com. Personalizing my bible was definitely worth the extra bucks and wait! It turned out beautiful! A number of my friends asked me where I got my bible and they told me they wanted to get one themselves, and surely they did! The bible is very compact, yet the texts are not too small. It's the perfect size for church as well as personal devotions. I personally enjoyed using this bible as it has the words of Christ in Red. The zipper function was great as well! My old bible did not have a zipper and every time I would keep in my bag, some of the pages would get crumpled or partly torn by accident. The zipper function kept my bible compact in my bag and pages straightened out which was perfect - 2 thumbs up!
**What I dislike:
Because I bought my bible in white (although I loved the colour when I first got it), it got dirty very fast. Then again, these bibles are available in burgundy/brown, and black. So, having said that, it may be best to get your bible in those colours.
Overall, this is a great bible for everyday use! Excellent product!
This is a great all around Bible, very lightweight to hold and practical. The text is incredibly easy to read with minimum show through from other side of page despite being such a thin Bible. The type-face Zondervan have used is also very nice making it enjoyable to read even though its not large print. What sets the particular Bible apart is the zipper closure- handy for carrying notes and other documents as well as protecting the white page edges. Highly recommend this Bible for Church services, travelling, and everyday use.
I was looking for a bible to carry in my purse. The large print is much easier to read, and the zippered cover is wonderful for protecting the pages. I can carry this bible anywhere without worrying about it being damaged.
The first question I thought of, and my husband, as it was a gift for him. It is so thin we had to check if all the Books were included, and they are, even with the Large Print. My husband wanted a Bible to carry in his briefcase and this is the perfect size. The cover has a rich feel and the pages are protected by the zipper when he is carrying it.
