This is a beautiful Bible, with a leather cover, dedication page, gold leafed pages and a concordance. I bought this as a gift, and was proud to give it. However, when I tried to look up four key words in the concordance, they were not there. Otherwise, I like it.

The format is ideal for my needs. Not a bunch of commentary taking up the page. Just textual footnotes. Excellent concordance.
The cover feels cheap and it's real thin. It could pass for a paperback. I would also believe 'bonded leather.' But I'm having difficulty believing "genuine leather" - unless "genuine leather" means something different from what it sounds like it should mean.

I made this purchase at the request of a newly ordained minister. He found this version of the bible suited him best. I appreciate the quality of the fine leather binding and the personalization performed by ChristianBook.

I was told this Bible had a center margin, only to discover that it doesn't, plus I'm not sure that it's genuine leather. Otherwise, the Bible is a good Bible.

An excellent Bible. Although the print is not large, it is clear and easy to read. The paper is high quality, and the genuine leather binding is superb. The Bible is just the right size. The concordance in the back is an added benefit that was not available in previous editions. This Bible is definitely worth the price, and comes highly recommended by this reviewer.

Everything is fine with me except the content has no brake down titles, just number of chapters. It will be the best if chapters and titles are included, since many riders are familiar with. Without titles it makes me confused because this is not my first Bible. I won't recommend that beginners get this book because it makes them confused with the pew Bible.
