As far as the quality of this product, it has surpassed my expectations. It is beautifully made. A true joy to even open. Yes, the actually text in the middle is the most important thing, but having God's Word in such a beautifully bound edition makes reading even more enjoyable. What can I say that others have not? The leather is gorgeous, the binding superb, the paper is PERFECT, with very, very little to no bleed though, and the text font and size are ideal for my aging eyes. 8-) The maps, references and other additions are very nice as well.
Lastly, I was a bit skeptical about the NRSV, as I normally do my daily reading from either the RSV-CE, or the Douay Rheims. I have been reading the version on line for some time, and now with the physical Bible, even more so. The translation is growing on me. It flows very, very nicely. I thought the inclusive language would bother me, but I'm finding that the notes always note where things are stated differently in other translations, and my familiarity with the texts take away much of that worry. The NRSV is fast becoming my favorite translation, for a number of reasons!
It is very well made, easy to read, easy to highlight and mark with notes. Even though it is not touted as a 'note-taking' Bible, there is room in the margins for brief notes and highlighting or underlining, if done with common sense and not pressing really hard, works fine and does not bleed through pages.
It is a perfect size - big enough to be easily read, small enough to easily carry. The maps, glossary and helps are well done and very useful and the cross-referencing system is terrific.
I have to say that I truly love this version. It has accuracy and readability without crossing the line into a version SO 'modern' and readable that it no longer even seems biblical.
And it is sturdy - seriously. I'm not sure any Bible not made of stone and steel would have survived the chihuahua capers at my home :)
I pray you choose this Bible and that its words bless you and your family for many years to come!
The item itself is wonderful and I love the off-white paper stock and the silk ribbons and quality binding... BUT ... what is it with Amazon and high-end Bibles? They seem to send out damaged or poor quality Bibles more often than not. I have bought MANY leather Bibles from Amazon and this copy should be returned -- the gold edging has all but brushed away at the top of the Bible. However, I enjoy the text so much I expect the gilding to wear away anyhow.
PLEASE AMAZON .... inspect your more expensive stock before shipping it so you can replace without inconveniencing your loyal customers.
