The bad news - the publisher should be ashamed of printing such a wonderful resource so poorly. I am on my second replacement copy of the 2015 Reformation Study Bible (black leather edition). All copies have suffered from smeared ink. The pages are very thin and text "bleed through" is the worst I have seen in a Bible. The scripture typeface has been reduced in size from 10.25 (ITC Berkeley font) to 9.5 (Proforma font) which is still quite easy to read. But the ESV cross-reference font size within the text is so small it makes reading them very difficult. Likewise the ESV textual footnotes at the bottom of the scripture are hard to read due the tiny font. Cross-references have been relocated to the interior margins and reside on "the fold" which makes them harder to see. I consider the ESV cross references an integral part of the study bible, and as such, find the tiny cross reference font limits ease of usability.
I like the study notes and articles content of the 2015 Reformation Study Bible so much that despite the smeared print I decided to keep my copy, and I read it regularly. But regardless of how good the content is the print quality issues are unacceptable. Hopefully future printings will correct this.
I would rate content at 5 stars, but overall I can only rate the 2015 Reformation Study Bible at 3 stars until the printing issues are resolved.
Some things I liked:
- Single column text. Makes reading a pleasure. Also the cross references are to the side and I like that.
- The Creeds and Catechisms are included and it has been good to have them to reference.
- More articles for study.
Some things I didn't like as much:
- The articles in the previous version were easy to read, having white backgrounds. The new version puts the articles on light gray backgrounds making the text harder to read.
- The study notes on the pages have been changed from two columns to three and for me it seems the text is crammed to close. Maybe they had to do that to keep the size of the Bible reasonable but I think double columns would still be better.
- Some of the pages came with smudges. That just isn't right.
- I would have liked seeing in the study notes, referenced to the Catechisms in the back, tying the two together.
Overall I do like the new version. In the end some of the improvements are paid for by things that were removed from the previous version that I really liked.
Still the content and the layouts are, I would say, the best out there in the market - excellent translation, insightful study notes, solid/sound doctrine, confessions/catechisms, etc... Mainly due to the font/printing, though, I am sticking with the older version for now and gave the new one to my teenage son, who has no difficulty reading it. If the publisher releases an edition with more readable font, I will definitely get few more copies. Overall it might be one of the best Bibles for a self-study!
