This is a very reasonable presentation. The references are on the sides rather than in the middle, so easier to read the text. There is a ribbon marker. The original price in pencil was £39 and printed 2009 I think. It is not good as a reading copy as the paper is a bit see-through.But for reference ideal.The text is a good size for reading for my OAP eyes.

HASH(0x9719ffe4) out of 5 stars NRSV Cross-reference Edition, Anglicized 29 Sept. 2005
By Tim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
First lets talk about the good in this particular NRSV. The overall dimensions are 9.25" x 6.75" x 1.40" slightly bigger than "personal size" but handy enough to tote around just about anywhere. The typesetting looks to be about 10 point with 1 point line spacing, it is very readable. The paper is a pleasant off-white color and thick enough to resist tears and folds. The body text is set in two columns to further ease reading. The Anglicized text (e.g. "colour" vs. "color" et al) is largely transparent. The main feature of this Bible is the 100,000+ cross references set on the outside of each column adjacent to the subject text (left column references on left, right column references on right). The first 26 references in a chapter are labeled "a" to "z", the next 26 references (27->52) re-use "a" to "z" and so on. The "a->z" labels flow from page to page throughout the chapter. This system works quite well. You can always easily find the reference related to a particular call-out. This is a much better system than the "center" references found in most reference Bibles. I frequently use NKJV, NASB, and NIV reference editions side by side with this NRSV. I find the NRSV's cross references to be thorough and of high quality. There are also frequent and incisive titles throughout the text just above the opening verse for that subject (e.g. Mat 1:18 "The Birth of Jesus the Messiah"). This is a much better system than the "top of page" titles found in some Bibles. Now for the bad news. 1) The cover is an avant-garde orange color with a tan and black band at the bottom. The title is set about 1/3 the way down the cover and centered. It simply reads "the Bible". Continuing with this "modern" theme the remaining text on the cover is in lower case except the "NRSV" logo. This cover may get an "A" in art class but it gets an "F" in respect for the word of God. This cover should be deposited in the nearest trash bin on the next printing and replaced with something more respectful of the Holy Scriptures. 2) Page top titles are comprised of three part split-text with starting verse on left, chapter title in center, and ending verse on right. This system is not useable in Bible study because as you scroll the pages (left or right) seeking a different chapter you have to open each scrolled page all the way to its center point to see the chapter title (a royal pain in the neck!). The conventional method of having chapter titles "outside" (chapter title right on odd pages, left on even pages) should be adopted on the next printing. 3) In the New Testament textual back-references to Old Testament verses are poorly distinguished from the surrounding text (see Mat 1:23, 2:6). This Bible does provide a line break before and after the back-reference but sets the back-reference text in the same font as the surrounding verses. At minimum the back-reference text should be set in italic. 4) Words of Jesus are poorly distinguished from the surrounding text (see Mat 3:15). This Bible does put Jesus' words in single quotes but sets the text in the same font as the surrounding text. At minimum Jesus' words should be set in italic, bold, or the more costly "red-letter" method. If the publisher fixes the problems noted above in the next printing, this Bible will become a "5 Star". All of that said, the main functional benefit of this particular NRSV is its excellent set of cross-references.
