TNIV Bible Popular Edition Black French Morocco Le&hellip by Bible

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding value, 18 Mar 2013
This edition of the TNIV Bible represents, in my view, outstanding value for money. I find the production standards of so many current Bible editions, and books in general come to that, shoddy to say the least, with poor quality paper and bindings. That is not the case here. The paper is crisp, with the weight well chosen for the purpose, and the typeface is clear and legible. The traditional leather binding adds to the quality feel, and this Bible sits comfortably in one's hands.

This is the Bible for which I've been waiting. The Anglicized NRSV is, in my view, the best currently available text for accuracy and readability. The provision of the Grail psalms is a welcome bonus.

Also most welcome is the mini-concordance and the lectionary for Mass readings.

The cover is imitation leather, but quite acceptable at the price. The quality of the paper used and the binding are of excellent standard. I have quite poor eyesight, but find the typeface used very clear.

This Bible would make a superb gift for… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite my style, 21 Jun 2012
'Philosophy in Practice' was recommended to me an an introductory text. There can be no dispute that it does indeed provide an introduction to the main questions studied in philosophy. However, for this reader at least, two characteristics of the book significantly diminish its appeal and usefulness. First, it is, I think, much better suited to being used within the context of a philosophy class, rather than by a solo reader. Its origins as such a text are plain to see, with a plethora of suggested group activities. (There's also a pronounced American flavour to the text and style, but it's perhaps unfair to carp about that given that the author teaches at a US university.) Secondly, on a… Read more
