Excellent Bible -- NKJV hardback
on July 13, 2015
I bought my copy of this fine hardback edition of the New King James Version Holy Bible at a Christian bookstore today (sorry Amazon), and like it so much that I wanted to write a review on Amazon (where, in fact, I do most of my shopping). Of course the problem with buying books online is you can't look them over before deciding to purchase, which I think is very important when it comes to purchasing a Bible, and truth be told had I not seen this product in the store and examined it first I probably would have never purchased it online by the description alone.
Why? Because at this price point, I would have expected it to be a very cheap production, like so many Bibles published these days. But it turns out, even though printed in China, it is a very sturdy hardback, with a binding that is Smyth sewn (the pages are bound in signatures, so individual sheets won't fall out with use). You get tremendous quality for the price!
However, I'm in agreement with the one-star reviewers here on one point -- if you are looking for a truly giant print edition, you should probably look elsewhere. I compared this Bible to some of my other hardback Bibles of comparable size, and while the font is larger than those other Bibles, it is still considerably smaller than would be expected for an advertised giant print Bible. For me, this is no big deal. It wasn't the "giant print" label that sold me in the first place, as I am not really in the market for a giant print Bible anyway. But if you are considering this edition for that reason alone, chances are you will be disappointed, and I would not recommend it.
With that said, I think this is a terrific Bible. The price is great and the quality is exceptional. I just wish Amazon would post more details so that one can have a better idea of what he/she is buying. After all, the Amazon discount makes it an even better buy!
