This Bible is very beautifully bound. It is one of the prettiest cloth bound books I've ever seen. With a green edge (or "sage"), and a stitching pattern dividing it from the floral design set against a white background. The cover also seems quite durable. Of course, the prettiness of this Bible doesn't amount to much if the translation isn't very good, but I can assure you that the translators did a pretty good job.
It lies flat easily and has a ribbon marker. The pages are a bit thin for writing, a bit transparent too (you can see the writing through the page) it would be nice if they would a bit thicker. I also wish that the font for the Biblical text would be a bit bigger, it is very small and I'm a bit afraid that one's commentary and notes would be more prominent than the text itself. But I think it still serves its purpose quite well. It also includes a concordance and some full color maps.
This is a very pretty version of the Notetaking Bibles, and as a bonus, it also comes in a pretty box! I'll be using it as a Christmas present for one of my younger sisters.
Many thanks to the folks at B&H publishing for sending me a free review copy of this Bible (My review did not have to be favorable)!
