Ordered a case to give as gifts. They came covered with gritty dust (soot?)and one was damaged. Then the replacement had a bent corner. Besides that...I really think they'll make good gifts for our youth group kids.5 stars for God's word-2 stars for CBD :-(
The One Year Bible is great, and I really like the NLT translation for reading large blocks such as this. However, be warned--the print in this Compact version is microscopic! It is way too small for my 50-year-old eyes. I actually purchased it as a sample for my church--we plan to launch a One Year Bible Challenge next year. However, I passed this compact version around a table of people of varying ages, and no one felt like they would enjoy reading this particular edition. Great price, but you get what you pay for, in this case!
I've been reading the NLT One Year Bible since April 2003 and I love the way it is divided into daily readings. I note the year at the beginning of each days' reading, that way if I miss a day, I know what I need to read to catch up. Everything is already layed out so you don't have to flip through trying to decide what to read.... plus you're finished in about 15 minutes and you get to read through the Psalms twice a year. I love my One Year Bible....maybe I'll even buy a new one after 10 years of use....in about 3 years. I've bought NLT One Year Bibles for my husband, my brother, my daughters, my friend and now I'm getting one for my 15 y/o granddaughter! It's easy to understand and is the best ever way to read through the Bible! My daily reading has been made easy and exciting....and I enjoy and look forward to reading my Bible each and every day for the rest of my life! PRAISE THE LORD! !
