Very well made.

Other study bibles have the notes, references, etc., on the same page, and it's easy to just read the on-page notes rather than the Word itself.

I have been looking for a large print new american bible that puts the notes in another location and i wasnt disappointed when i opened this bible for the first time. The leather binding is truly beautiful and feels great when you hold this perfect size bible in your hands. The only bible that comes close is the St Joseph large print by Catholic Publishing company. My only complaint was that there wasnt a sunday or daily liturgical reading in the back as in other Oxford NAB's. The notes are in the back of every book and are presented in font size 8 i believe. Thank you Oxford, i will be shelfing my other bibles for a long time.

I'm not Catholic, but I recognize that this is an outstanding Bible for both study and devotions. The NAB is a solid, accurate, accessible translation, and this edition has study notes and cross references after the text of the book, which I think is a much less distracting way of presenting study notes. Other study bibles have the notes, references, etc., on the same page, and it's easy to just read the on-page notes rather than the Word itself. This edition, though, has a multitude of well-thought-out commentary notes neatly arranged, by verse, after the book in its entirety; beyond that is an exhaustive list or guide to every incidence of that particular phrase in Scripture. The leather binding is superb (probably Smyth-sewn), the indexed pages helpful, the type size perfect, and the overall size, "heft," portability, durability, and style of this bible is simply a preview to an outstanding translation with outstanding textual notes. As a Protestant and 31-year disciple of Christ Jesus, I can say confidently that this is my favorite, most used overall preaching and every-day bible. Trust me -- if you end up not reading the Word every day, it's not because of any flaws in the design or functionality of this edition. Truly impressive and well worth the cost.

Not too heavy considering it's size. It's not too bad to carry it a couple of blocks. The print is very readable. It has notes at the back of the chapters instead of the bottom. It's different but not too annoying.

A few years ago I purchased the Oxford New American Bible. As I was raised Protestant (Baptist, now secular humanist for over 20 years), I had not been exposed to much Roman Catholicism. The regular edition of the NAB has a beautiful color section with the RCC prayers at the beginning. At the end it has an essay titled "The Bible in the Liturgy" and tables of liturgical readings. It is a nice size, but the font was just way too small for me.

I looked forward to the large print edition. But I was disappointed that it did not have the RCC prayers or the liturgy section. Also, the print is actually larger than needed, and this makes the Bible a bit heavy to handle.

Overall, I really like the large print Oxford NAB; I prefer it to the regular edition. But I do wish it had the extras and that the type was not SO large and the book not so heavy.

As always with Oxford bibles, the binding is top quality. Sewn signatures, quality paper, etc. If you are young and have great vision, I'd get the regular NAB, but if small print gives you a headache, you'll love the large print NAB.

I already had a love for the word of God. But aging made me look for a Bible with larger print. Amazon gave me sufficient information to help me choose this Bible which suits me perfectly. It also has copious notes of explanation plus pages of cross references which make it easier to relate the New Testament to prophets and events in the Old Testament.

Very well made. Lies flat. Even though this is a 'large print' edition, I wish the font were a little larger.

I would highly recommend this bible to any one looking for reading the NAB without the reference materials at the end of each and every page. I enjoy reading the bible page after page and I find the location of the reference materials at the end of every page annoying. I prefer going to the end of the book I am reading, or in a reference at the end of the bible itself. This bible's type set is easy to read. The paper is high quality. Lastly it sits on your hand easily, the leather surface helps hold the volume, and it is made to last.

Nice leather-type cover, large enough print for my mother to read. Even has indented tabs.
