My Review: I received a copy of this Bible in exchange for an honest review.
I've been looking for a strictly reading Bible for a few months now. I've been trying to keep up with a daily Bible reading plan, and I've noticed that with my study Bibles, I tend to get distracted by all the extraneous cool stuff. As much as I love it, it tends to make my reading twice as long. Perhaps a good Christian wouldn't complain about the extra time spent with her Bible, but when I've got 2 little kids pulling me in ten different directions as I'm trying to read it, it gets a bit overwhelming. I know what you're thinking....a good Christian woman would put aside non-distracting time to read. I have yet to find that time in my day.
Which led me to look at this Bible for review, and I fell in love with it. I'm a fan of the NIV translation. The black faux leather duo-tone cover in black is soft and easy to handle.The pages are edged in silver, which is set off nicely with the black cover and black ribbon. If I were giving this Bible as a gift (which I'm not), it has a beautiful presentation page in black, gray and while. The pages are extremely thin, which can make it hard to turn the pages as you read it. Jesus' words are in red, I'm neither here nor there about that. Some people really like that, but I don't care either way.
Overall, this is just a very beautiful, lightweight Bible, perfect for your daily reading, or giving as a gift.
