Description is inaccurate
on September 20, 2009
I ordered this bible believing it was leather bound, as described in the title. It is not. The binding is BONDED leather, which is nothing like genuine leather. Bonded leather is to leather as pressed wood is to wood, or as baloney is to meat. I returned the bible and, after checking the manufacturer's web page for an accurate description, bought a different one that actually does have a leather binding. ISBN numbers are very helpful for this. Amazon refunded only half (with no explanation), and, instead of changing the description to match the product, kept the false description and raised the price! Great job, Amazon! I will have to go through my credit card company to get the rest of my refund. I wish Amazon would do something about inaccurate product descriptions. This review refers to ISBN-13: 978-0195288728.
UPDATE 9/21/09: Amazon refunded the rest of the purchase amount, but the item title description remains uncorrected.
