I have been researching and looking for a journaling bible for a little while now. I found this one and fell in love with the look of it. It functions exactly as I would want, it is the single column and has the wide margins, which is what I was looking for. But upon receiving it and putting it together (which literally just involves putting the leather strap through a couple of pre-punched holes on the cover and tying a knot) I realized that the functionality of this bible with the long leather strap, while it looks beautiful, is cumbersome and would distract (at least me) from using it to the fullest. So, the very thing that attracted me to it, is what made me end up returning it.
As far as the bible itself, it is beautiful. I thought the words were printed at a legible size and the font it pleasing. The pages seem thick enough to write or illustrate on without a lot of bleed through. The leather on the inside is a little rough and is noticeably genuine leather, which will end up wearing beautifully, I think. It comes with a pen holder in the back, which is very useful for this bible and it's intended purpose. I am just sad that I am unable to love the leather strap as much as I had hoped. And without it, I fear the flap would just be in the way.
I've included a few pictures, it really is a beautiful bible and if you can get over my issue with it, I think you will love it!
Things that I love?
The pages fold down REALLY REALLY flat. I have over current/recent publications such as a very expensive Calfskin ESV study bible, a thin line ESV, another small single column ESV bible, a journal wide margin NASB, a couple parallel bibles, a Life Application NIV bible, a few types of "The Message" Bibles.
This Bible is hands down - waaay better in quality. I think this is going to be my go-to Bible (as far as the rest of them? I am okay with parting ways/donating or leaving them as shelf/reference Bibles).
The pages are light beige in color as others mentioned, the type does visible come through the pages (ghosting), but I would have to agree with some other reviews, the pages are matte, very smooth, but not slick and "sticky" like most recent publications of the Bible (the ESV Study Bible is one that comes to mind).
The leather version of this is amazing, I am glad I went with this version, every time I wrap up the Bible, I use that as a tangible reminder to guard my heart from the sins/evil of the world. It is a great remind to protect my heart, and not let it be swayed from the pressures of people or temptations of lust, or other personal desires/greed.
I highly recommend this Bible - and it might even make an amazing gift to friends/loved ones in the future!
I'm debating if I want to try to get it replaced or if it's even worth the hassle. It'll get scuffed up over time with normal use anyway, I suppose.
EDIT: I am happy to say I did not return it. After using this Bible for over a year, I can say that I am very pleased with it. I love, love, love the wide columns, and the cream-colored pages. After about a month of struggling with the wrap-around strap, I ended up removing it. Even without the strap, the wrap-around cover offers protection for the pages which is especially handy when you travel with your Bible. I am still disappointed with the finish of the leather. It scratches very easily, so you'll have a highly-distressed finish in no time. Just don't expect fine Italian leather, and you won't be disappointed like me :)
