beautiful Bible Jul 8, 2008
This is a very well made and beautiful Bible. The cover is really pretty, its by far the coolest looking Bible I have ever seen. I really like the Message version too, it is easy to read and is especially good for new believers or for people who have a hard time understanding the old english used in many versions (and who doesn't). I like to read it next to my NASB or KJV to compare, but so far I have not found discrepancies and I find the Message is a version anyone can read and understand.
I bought this particular Bible for my nephew and I was just really impressed with the quality of it. The pages were really nice, the layout and font make it easy to read. The cover bends well and is not rigid like many new leather Bibles are. Its very soft and feels like a broken in book. I'll definitely be buying more copies of this for friends and family in the future.
