I was looking for a New King James Version Bible with a good print size, verse-by-verse formatting, and a leather-type cover that would hold up over the years. This is a beautiful Bible that meets my expectations! I use a fine point blue pen to underline verses, and it doesn't show through the pages. I'm sure if you used a highlighter that this would be a different story, but for me, the paper is thick enough for the pen to not show through. The cover feels wonderful and lays flat. The print of the text is not too big and not too small, which is great for those of us who prefer a somewhat larger print. I especially enjoy that it has verse-by-verse formatting, as that makes it easier to locate a verse. I've always preferred Thomas Nelson Bibles and this is just another one of theirs that I love.
I was very happily surprised with the quality of this Bible. The binding is sturdy (and sewn!) yet supple, the bonded leather is supple (the Bible lays flat), the paper is the most opaque Nelson has used for their text Bibles in a long while, and the print is nice and sharp. Nelson also did a Giant Print center column version of similar quality. If only Nelson was consistent with this quality in al their text Bibles! Their study Bibles is overall of good quality though.
The sale price was excellent-a very well made bible. Haven't found any printing or other errors yet. But, it doesn't matter because this is an excellent bible for young or old. I think its great for gift giving and general use. Also very nice for new Christians-handles well and has a beautiful leather grain. Pages are nice and crisp!
