i love this Bible,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Thinline Bible-NIV (Imitation Leather)
i was needing a new Bible because my previous one was GNB & my new Church uses NIV (makes life so much easier to use the same translation!) . i also wanted a Bible that would fit into my bag, be durable but flexible, so a leather bound one was the most obvious choice!
i also needed a decent size font as can no longer read small print comfortably.
this Bible fits those criteria, the leather bounding makes it v durable but easy to use, the font is a great size & also as it lays flat it's very easy to read.
i was initially not too keen on Christ's words being in red, not as easy to read i thought, but actually it's really not bad at all & i can read it easily!
i like the book mark ribbon (though always think more than one would be useful!).
i've given 5 stars because the 2 niggles i have are minor! i'd really have found a brief introduction to each book helpful (as i have in another Bible) & ideally i'd like all print in black & not some in red, but these are so minor i've still given 5 stars!
this Bible is packaged so nicely & has a presentation plate it'd make an ideal gift. i ordered the brown/ tan 2 tone leather & it has gilt edging so it's beautiful to look at too.
it's also a new edition (march 2011) so totally up to date & the NIV is such a straight forward translation to understand.
