Review 1 for Japanese-English Bilingual Bible (NIV)
Date:September 4, 2008
Excellent Bible, Japanese and English side by side. The Japanese has the furigana (Hiragana subtitles for Kanji) so its easy to read for beginners at Japanese (as long as you can read hiragana and katakana).Also great if you are ministering to Japanese people or are hosting Japanese students...you can easily reference English with side by side comparison in Japanese.text size was fine, the furigana may be hard for some people so have your reading glasses ready ;)you really don't want the text size any bigger since its a big Bible...makes it kinda hard to carry around everywhere (i had to leave it at home on my last trip to Japan, what with all the newer weight restrictions on airlines these days)
