When I received this Bible it did not have a box to cover the Bible, it was thrown in with the other books that I bought. The other books had bent some of the pages in this Bible. Also every page in this Bible is wavy on the top and bottom of each page. This Bible is new ( NOT a slightly damaged ), but it should be consided a slightly damage Bible. I have boughted Bibles in the past that were slightly damaged, and I could not see any damage, but the NKJV Jeremiah Study Bible Hardcover in Large Print (New, not slightly damaged) is truly a slightly damaged Bible, and I don't understand why it's not called a slightly damaged, also I don't understand why this Bible was thrown in the same box with other books that bent some of the pages. The pages are very thin and I'm afraid to highlight and write in it, but on page XV says to use a pen to underline, circle, and draw lines from verse to verse, scribble comments, also says " A well-marked Bible means a well-fed soul ". So with it saying to use a pen, then I will. One other comment, this Bible is huge, you won't find a Bible Carrier, you need to use a briefcase to carry this Bible ( only letting you know.) Which does'nt bother me, I use my husbands' old briefcase. SO, WITH ALL OF THE DOWN SIDES,-- I DO LIKE THE WAY DAVID JEREMIAH WORDED IN THIS BIBLE. -- I would recommend this Bible to my friends, but I would also tell them all of the down sides.
