I first saw this bible when visiting a friend and knew I was going to purchase one for myself. The layout of the bible is very pleasing. I had read a number of reviews before purchasing and found those who thought it a bit hard to follow and those who simply loved it. I had the opportunity to go through it first hand, so my decision was an easy one. I find it easy to follow the scripture flow. The size of the book, the fonts, etc., the coloring...all lovely.
I showed it to a friend of mine who immediately purchased 2. That speaks volumes. I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend this to anyone thinking of purchasing a new or another bible for themselves and/or a friend. The cost to purchase this was very low and the value very high.
Its a great study Bible, but it has so much filler inbetween the actual scriptures that it made it very hard to look up scripture when I wanted to study or flip through Scripture on my own. This is not the Bible for that purpose. But, if you want direction everyday to go where it is already laid out for you, then this is a great Bible for that purpose.
