It's incredible how low cost this Bible is when taking its high quality and workmanship into account. It has the most opaque and sturdy paper I have seen in a modern Bible, and when that is combined with the text line matching technology, it offers the least amount of "ghosting" (see through of the text from an opposite page) in the Bible market.
I read it was printed in Italy at a high quality press.
The single column reads very nice (no references to distract continuous reading). The large margins allow for note taking (which I don't do much, but I know a lot of people do).
The binding is smyth sewn and is sturdy yet the Tru Tones lay flat from the box (the genuine leathers lay flat after some months of regular use).
Only drawback is the weight of this Bible - it's quite heavier than the same size Bible, due to its thicker (but not thick) paper. Let it rest on your lap or table, and voila, problem solved.

I hate Reference Bibles. The center of two columes looks polluted and I can never read them. I wanted something that was made to read. This is an awesome Bible. It lays flat, the binding is durable, and no columes: just text going across the page in a normal book fashion.
