Customer Reviews

It has a durable, grainy feel that I happen to like.
S. Pompa
In the few weeks I have had the Bible, I have been pleased with the wide margins of this Bible, and was surprised that I liked the single column layout so much.
KyBooks
The margins are great for writing, but they're also great for leaving clean.

While it's not perfect, it may be the most readable Bible Crossway has produced.

The vast majority of single column Bibles use a very small font which makes the lines too long, and the leading (space between lines of text) is not adjusted to make it readable. You end up with long lines of tiny text and virtually no space between lines. That's anti-readability.

Crossway did not make those mistakes.

They use a 9 pt font. I wouldn't mind seeing it a point size bigger, but 9 pt isn't so small that it's uncomfortable.

They got the line length right using ~13 words per line. And there is enough leading to properly track the text from the end of one line to the beginning of another.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that there is virtually no bleed-through of text from pages beneath the one you are reading. It's one of the best non-bleed-through texts I've seen.

They use black text throughout (no words of Christ in red). That enhances readability tremendously. Red text on white paper is not ideal and can strain your eyes when read for long periods. For those who have a theological problem with not using red text, please remember that it is a very modern invention. Red text wasn't used in Bibles until the late 1800s. No Bible before that time had red text and that includes the original King James.

The TrueTone cover is very flexible and can be folded back easily.

The pages have wide outside margins where they put the section headings. The margins are wide enough to make them ideal for notes.

That brings me to a minor complaint. The inside margins are a little too narrow. The text runs slightly into the curved area of the page where it inserts into the spine. It's not bad--I've seen much worse.

I wanted to share my thoughts about the Top Grain Leather ESV Single Column Legacy Bible, organized in 5 areas:

1. Translation (5 stars) - I'm a big ESV (English Standard Version) fan. Although I own several translations, the ESV is the translation I find myself reading the most. It is a very readable, word-for-word translation. This Bible contains the 2011 ESV text.
2. Cover and Binding (4 stars) - The brown cowhide leather is thin, but nice. It is, however, somewhat stiff. I'm sure it will loosen up over time. The raised bands on the spine exude old world quality.
3. Paper Quality (5 stars) - The paper quality is the best of any current ESV Bible. I own a Cambridge Wide Margin ESV, too, and the paper in the Legacy, I believe, is even better the Cambridge WM. This is high praise indeed.
4. Print Quality (5 stars) - The Bible is printed in Italy and the print quality is truly excellent. The font is 9 pt., which for me is at the low end of what I would want, especially in a single column Bible. However, the print is consistent throughout. The spacing between lines is great. Also, this Bible use line matching (print on one side of the page lines up exactly with the print on the other side of the page) and executes it flawlessly. This is also a black letter version which I prefer much more than red letter versions.
5. Features (5 stars) - No references, and yes, it is a feature. This is a great reader's edition. In addition to no references in the text, the column headers have been moved to the outer margins. And speaking of margins, they are large. Another feature I really like is that the verse number is pushed to the left of the text in the poetry sections. In my opinion, it's the best poetry representation I have seen in any Bible.

All in all, I give this Bible 5 stars and highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys the ESV.

Having recently received and begun using the single-column legacy bible, I can say that of the many ESV bibles I have purchased and used, this edition is the best yet. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate the various features of this bible as follows:

* the Tru-tone cover (amazing look and feel of goatskin leather) - 10

* yapp (cover overhang - semi-yapp which doesn't catch the paper or get in the way) - 10

* binding method (sewn signatures) - 10

* edge treatment (gold foil applied lightly and tastefully; almost no flaking or page sticking) - 10

* ribbons (1, brown, standard) - 9

* page layout (sin col, wide mar; this layout is just perfect giving text/poetry room to "breath") - 10

* font type style (beautiful font that is easy to read for long periods) - 10

* font size (not too small, nor to large to keep the bible a reasonable size) - 10

* font density (darkness of type) and uniformity across pages (best printing I have ever seen) - 10

* paper (I have a $200 bible, but this edition has the best paper I have ever seen; smooth, ivory color) - 10

* bible size (overall size of bible feels right - 6"x9"x1.5", not overly floppy yet sufficiently large to use - 10

* OVERALL - 10

The overall bible is beautiful. the Tru-Tone cover is the best I have seen and rivals the look and feel of $200 goatskin bibles (I have one). The text block and layout is the best I've every used - poetry and prose flow naturally across the page and sentences/phrases are not cramped/disconnected as in double-column bibles. The paper is the finest I've touched and is ivory in color, smooth, with minimal ghosting (text on other side of page visible through page).
