Great Bible! Oct 28, 2008

For all of you blind bats out there, there is hope! Jul 12, 2008
ESV Large print is a must have. A reading pleasure for those of us past the age of 45 who's eye's are growing dim. :)
Not quite the Clear Word Jun 29, 2008
Please don't misunderstand me. I love the ESV translation; however, this copy was pretty poor. There are a number of places where the ink apears to be smugged, making it difficult to read--my very reason for buying a large print Bible. I would not have sold this copy as new, commercial quality.
what I expected Jun 14, 2008
After reading the reviews I was curious . Yes, it's delicate paper,but, for the money,great. And the large print is great. Very easy to read. I am thrilled.
I like it May 21, 2008
ESV is A+ That being said, I'll talk about the bible rather than the version here -- you can check out the version online etc.
A lot of shaky ratings on this, but I think its quite good! Let me provide you with the facts, which I can do because I own this, returned the calf skin one and the hard cover.
It is 12.75 text. The best thing you can do is print out something from MS word to get an idea. I don't know the font style which would make a difference, but its similar to Time New Roman in a 12ish area. It is definitely a good size.
People are complaining about the light print and terrible paper quality. The font is not light, its just not full and bold. At 12.75 It really doesn't need to be. The print is dark, its the font style that lacks the boldness and I have no problem with this and really think its smooth and a great bible to read for long periods of time. Paper quality? hey I heard great reviews that the calf skin large print had better paper etc and this is not what I saw. I'm not saying the others are lying -- they may have changed something. Its the same exact text style and darkness and paper as the $140 calf skin large print. Perhaps one may argue the paper is slightly better, but I honestly saw no difference between the two.
The binder....yeah its pretty poor and the bonded leather is really stiff which is why I couldn't give it more than 4 stars. The $140 calf skin one definitely has a better binder, but its the exact same bible inside and is it worth a $100 for soft leather and a better binder. I haven't owned it long enough to tell you how long it will last. I think If you wear this out you'll be happy to spend another $37.
In my opinion this deserves 4 stars. The calf skin one probably only deserves 2 stars due to its price. 12.75 is LARGE.
I definitely like it....
You'll have to evaluate things for yourself... you can always return it etc
