HarperOne NRSV XL-Print Bible--imitation leather, brown

If you are looking for an easier-to-see Bible with the accuracy and elegance of the New Revised Standard Version This Bible is ideal for you.

Used by mainline Protestant churches, Orthodox churches, and many Catholics, the NRSV is recognized in scholarly circles as the most accurate translation into English of the original Hebrew and Greek texts. In the tradition of its predecessors, the King James Version and the Revised Standard Version, the NRSV was designed to be the "standard" version for English–speaking people across all denominations.

A special easy–to–read large print setting makes for a wonderful reading experience. It also includes a concordance index to help people find key passages.

Features include:

  • Craft-sewn binding for added strength and long life
  • Special, imported Bible paper
  • Craft-made Amalfi covers
  • A Concordance
  • Ribbon marker

I am a person that prefers a bit larger print for Bible study. However, "bleed through" in the ink on pages is often a consequence of larger print. The benefits of larger print are cancelled out by the distraction of "shadows" of the print on the next page.
This Bible has neither problem. The page stock is good and so bleed-through is limited. The lettering is clear. The larger width of the Bible allows for more words per line in the larger print format. This width also allows a less bulky larger print Bible. This is not, however, a "giant" print Bible.
The only "flaw" I would say is the plastic cover. Having said this, the binding is excellent and the cover can be wiped clean.
Bottom-line is if you want a basic NRSV that that is easy on the eyes and will last for years, then this is the Bible for you.
