I am what I'd like to call a "bible hopper" I bounce around buying new bibles hoping one will just fit!! I have tried so many, and I assumed I only wanted a devotional bible. I went to the store one day to look around, and I came across this bible. This is honestly the BEST bible I have ever had. I enjoy the look, the cover, the gold bonding, the colored print inside, etc. it's beautiful. The pages are thick enough for pens and certain writing markers to not bleed through. This bible is great for women as it has reading that pertain to certain life issues, and situations. There are quotes throughout the bible as well. It's the perfect combination bible. It's a great combination between a devotional, and a study bible. I find it easy to understand and use, and I get excited to open it up and dig in each day. I am 25, and I love using it. My mother has used it as well and loves it. I think it is a great fit for woman of every age, at any stage in life. Man!! I just can't say enough, BUY THIS BIBLE!!!!
