Truly A Work Of Art in a Book
January 2, 2014
I received this Bible as a gift from my daughter to replace my cherished but well worn out Bible. I must say this is by far the nicest Bible I have ever owned. I'm not going to review the text and content, but I personally wanted a Bible with the Apocrypha so suffice it to say I am very happy with the text and translation. The quality of the Bible itself is superb! I have never had a brand new leather Bible feel like an older, well broken in one like this. Right from the first day the Moroccan Leather cover wrapped around my hand like a glove and the pages laid flat and stayed put. I know we are not to judge a book by it's cover, but in this case, I simply must. It is the best I have ever owned. I have been an ordained Lutheran pastor for 29 years. I have owned many and this one is simply my favorite, and I only had it a few days. In 2 words, I'm thrilled. I expect it will last longer than I will. It looks like it will be handed down to my granddaughter. A new family heirloom.
As someone who has been in the Christian ministry for 43 years and has a great deal of experience locating and obtaining Bibles of all versions and varieties both for my own use and for those under my ministry, I can state unequivocally that this Cambridge NRSV truly is what I call THE "Cadillac" of All Bibles! If you are a serious Bible student interested in the most scholarly, accurate translation available in a Bible made of materials designed to last a lifetime, look no further. If you purchase this, you have arrived at your oasis -- first-class quality in every way and perhaps the best-kept secret in the Bible market today. Nowadays, when it comes to Bibles you truly do get what you pay for, and you won't regret one penny you spend on this one.
