I think it would be too big if it had thicker pages, so I don't think that is a negative point. It has a great look and feel. At first glance it seems larger than it is, in my opinion. It can be a little difficult to find on the fly. I still give this Bible five stars because, in my opinion, it is well made, a perfect size to handle, and easy to read.
A comprehensive system of cross-references and a full concordance complement its format, also making it a useful edition for careful Bible study. There is ample room on the page for writing any notes you'd like. The layout of the text is neat as well; it sports two columns but without the normal cross references smashed in between, so you have a nice readable area. The inside liner seemed to be a bit different than the outside cover. I was attracted to this Bible since it was large print and my eyesight is not as good as it once was, but also because Crossway in their wisdom have invariably produced the translation in type far too small for my tastes.
You can navigate to a particular book from the Table of Contents and then to its chapters easily. To buy this book at the lowest price,. Keep in mind that many of their competitors call 28 g. For me two ribbons or more is a must. Overall, I can't say enough good things about this edition, and I greatly thank Crossway for publishing it, and Amazon for selling at such a reasonable price. It is a real translation, not a paraphrase or 'thought for thought' version of what the original language texts say.
The page edges are gold gilt and the corners are rounded. Short book introductions are included and there are a few detailed color maps and diagrams in the back. Given all of the above, I am very happy. Secure Shopping Safe Secure Shopping! Of course, two will suffice, and is certainly better than only one. The fonts for the translation notes are larger than the references and are much easier to read.
There are times where I catch something in this version that I glossed over in other Bibles I have. Finally, the size of the bible itself is excellent. There is a decent concordance in the back. The whole effect is that the letters start blurring together with the ones showing through behind them, and you have to work hard to make out what you are reading. The type is bigger than what you'll find in most Bibles, but it's not overwhelmingly big like in other big letter Bibles. It depends on your goals for having a Bible on your Kindle2 as to whether you'll get the most value from this version. I really like this bible.
They are the texts to which I am most drawn and trusting as they fit more accurately where we are today in God's world. Maps are the usual typical ones on heavier paper so they can be marked without any problem. It has all the references you need and need I say, it smells so good being brand new. . Another feature I really like is that the verse number is pushed to the left of the text in the poetry sections. Another plus is that the translation notes are separated from the cross references, making it easier to distinguish. However, index still works: 1.
This is right in the middle, and is perfect - easy to see, not tiny, yet not enormous. The print is very small, so be aware of this. It is a reference Bible, so it also lends itself to study. The font is 9 pt. It holds in my hands perfectly and I can still carry it everywhere with it being a burden. The Bible feels good in my hands, and I believe this is something which is important - subjectively for me over time it becomes like an 'old friend'. Tap the drop-down to search the index.
The page thickness is sufficient enough to minimize though not eliminate text ghosting, and the text color is printed pretty consistently in what I've encountered so far. This Bible can be had for a bit over eighty dollars. This Bible is for reading, not study. This bible is worth every penny. If you are in the market for a new Bible to fill a few roles, keep reading. There are no study notes but I knew that when I purchased it. I don't know how it would hold up over time if toted around.
