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.)
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.
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.
