The overall format of the bible is excellent. I can read a section of a chapter and, with the system the editor has chosen, I can get a better meaning of the chapter. The system is to use different words for the same meanings in the chapter and get a greater sense of appreciation of the chapter's meaning, Very useful when you don't have a commentary or a bible dictionary.
I bought about 10 of the hardcovers, & also had 2 bonded leather, 3 leathersoft engraved to give as gifts. I am abosolutely completely satisfied! Note: I did read the one-star rating complaint about the poor quality. I did not have any issues with any of the pages being glued together.
I am a bible teacher & use the Expanded Bible to teach from. I recommend this bible version to everyone who asks, as it is a good, easy to understand bible.
I keep 3-4 extra copies of the hardcover handy to give away to people I meet who need a bible. Best bible available for $7!!! I will continue to purchase more of these in the future.
