I purchased this book for myself. I was skeptical because I have access to many different versions on my bible app. I am so glad I purchased this bible it is a must have in every home. I plan on buying more for gifts.
I spend much time in the KJV study bible and the Amplified bible. I usually look up verses in easier to read translations as I teach preschoolers at church. I found myself constantly being drawn to the Voice bible and now prefer it over the NLT I usually use in class.
I also have the Message bible, ERV, ESV, Companion Bible, NIV, & Expanded bible but I really enjoy this version as an easy to read companion to my KJV & Amplified Bible! It's very easy to understand the spirit of the Bible passages - that's so important that we get the heart of the message! I find myself reading much farther than I intended because I'm so drawn into the stories. I hope they come out with a wide margin version for note taking.
The $7.99 price is amazing for this hardback. I am ordering another one for my wonderful husband!
