From the Back Cover

Ifáyou appreciate easy-to-read print, we invite you to experience the NRSV XL Edition - a beautifully designed and uniquely square-shaped Bible with extra-large text.áThis Bible allows for easier reading everywhere, from your morning commute on the bus to a late night study-group session. The XL's unique but classic design also gives you the added convenience of a Bible that is not only comfortable to hold but easy to carry...and stylish too. The XLáBible also features a concordance, craft-sewn binding for added strength and long life, craft-madeáAmalfi cover with special, imported Bible paper, and a ribbon marker.áá The New Revised Standard Versioná(NRSV)áis recognized in scholarly circles as the most accurate translation into English of the original Hebrew and Greek texts. In the tradition of its predecessors, the King James Version and the Revised Standard Version, the NRSV was designed to be the ôstandardö version for English-speaking people across all denominations. None of the new, more sectarian translations have approached its standards of elegance and accuracy.

I am a pastor and was in need of a larger print NRSV Bible for use in the pulpit. For that purpose, this is an excellent Bible - larger print size, but not gigantic. For me, it is just right for public scripture reading and would be helpful for those who otherwise need a larger font size.

Several years ago, there was a large print NRSV Bible available in limited quantities, but it is no longer in print. AS far as I know, this is the only larger print NRSV available, which seems hard to believe.

As far as the shape of this Bible, it's almost square - much wider pages than typical. I'm still not exactly sure what I think of the shape and size, but this shape allows for the larger text size without making the Bible thicker. I kind of like that it doesn't look like every other Bible out there.

One issue: this is advertised on Amazon as leather. It is not leather but some kind of synthetic material. It is a decent cover, but it's not leather. (The Harper website simply calls it "hardcover," but it's not what I think of as hardcover, either.)

Advanced in years, failing eyesight, and not to awfully good at memorization, it was an absolue delight to find an edition of the NRSV that I could read. Why a LARGE PRINT version has not been published (to my knowledge) is beyond my imagination. Do you have any ideas of how many of us are well beyond the four score and ten who long to see the WORD and read it with a sense of belonging? This just hit the spot and is easy on the eye. Try it, you'll like it.

The type-font of the text is wonderful and allows a small amount of space for notes and thoughts as you read. This is a version that you can underline and not worry about marking the proceeding line. The cover feels smooth and not cheap. The readability is wonderful and while the text is big, you don't get the sense that you need the XL text because your eyes have gone bad; in fact, it's the right size.

The pages are thin but not so thin that the text bleeds through from the other side. This is a plus considering that the Standard NRSV version makes it almost unreadable because of the defect.

The only thing that I found lacking was its width. It is a wide Bible and could have been shorten by an inch. While it's advertised as your anywhere-you-go Bible, it is a bit big and not friendly for opening up in the train or bus. The weight is not heavy and you could carry this Bible with you in a larger bag - as it's durability is sturdy.

Overall, great devotional Bible and should get a lot of use throughout the years.

The Bible's pluses are the large print and relatively wide margins, all in a fairly compact size.

There are only textual notes, no references or explanitory (study) notes.

The binding is very good but the brown leather cover is only adequate, it is thin so I question its longterm durability.

Interestingly the book is printed in China.

This review is only a commentary on the physical properties of this edition, and not on the translation or content. I was shopping for a portable and easy to read NRSV Bible, and this one suits my needs perfectly. My copy is the one Amazon is selling as "NRSV XL (brown) [Large Print] [Leather Bound]". The cover is not real leather, but for $25 I wasn't expecting it to be. Also, the cover of the (brown) version is not the tan/camel pictured but a much darker chocolate brown. I personally love the square format (approx. 8"x8"). It's easy to hold and the weight distribution feels good in my hands. The extra width helps the pages to stay open when holding in my hands or lap. The pages are very thin and sometimes hard to turn, but not so transparent that the reverse-side text obstructs view. The binding is sewn and advertised as "craft-sewn" binding by Harper Collins, and the brown ribbon marker is a nice touch. Several reviews here on Amazon complain that the "Large Print" isn't large enough. There is some truth to this. Relative to most portable bibles, the print is quite large and easy to read-- similar to a hardback novel-- but probably not sufficient for people with significant vision impairment. In this case, "Large print" really means "not tiny print." There is a concordance/index at the back, but otherwise this edition's content is pretty bare-bones. This is not a study or reference Bible, but a great "carry everywhere" edition.

Perfect for the over 40 crowd who needs glases for everything. This is easy to read without glasses, and has plenty of space in the margins if you like to write notes. Very nice quality paper and cover. However, I do plan to make a book cover for it, since it would be hard to find one in this odd size, and the cover would wear over time.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with the content - after all it is the Bible. However, it was advertised as Large Print. I have a large print Bible published by Oxford Press, which has larger type than the one published by Harper. The intended recipient of the NRSV could not use it because the type was not large enough. It was essential that the large print Bible be NRSV; other versions were not acceptable.
