My Review: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
First impressions of this Bible are nice. It is gray cloth over board, making it feel sturdy and look sleek and modern. A silver ribbon marker allows you to keep your place in the Bible. As someone who loves to write and journal in her Bible, I didn't find this Bible to have the wide margins that it claims to have. That was very disappointing. I don't have huge writing, but the space given barely seemed to give me enough space to write.
I did enjoy how that within each of the books of this Bible, it had sidebar articles explain how Jesus was a constant theme throughout the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. The typeset is rather small at 7 point, but it is clean with only one column, and so far, easy to read.
Overall, this is a nice Bible, but for someone who writes in their Bible, I wouldn't get it for them.
