I purchased 2 of these Bibles one for my son in law and one for my husband. My husband saw the one we got for our son in law and said that he wanted one as well. It is a nice sturdy Bible that is easy to read. Plus it as at a very fair price.

When writing a review for a Bible it is much different than a book, a book review is almost exclusively for content, a Bible however is the opposite almost exclusively for binding and not content for no man can critique God's Word !
It is often difficult to give a proper assesment of a Bible because each of us has our "list" of "must have" for our Bibles, and just like flavour thos are personal preferences.
So in fairness to this review and it's publishers here is my best shot at an unbiased opinion.
This Bible has fantastic proportion for a wide variety of users, 1)Preachers, the font is crisp and dark even the red letters so often lamentably light in inexpensive red-letter editions, it is double column verse by verse, it has very well layed out paragraph headings bold enough to use not too bold to distract, end of verse references sparingly again not to distract, literal renderings at the bottom but again sparingly not like most NAS Bibles with so many.2)Tired eyes, Again bold crisp well spaced words and lines.
3) Students, great colour maps with the often missing "Kingdoms", Concordance, even a table of weights/measures often missing great in helping the literal renderings in the NAS , shekel, cubit etc...italics for the missing words from original MSS 4) Personal use/Readers, great handy size (for me perfect size!) able to carry anywhere, most Bibles it's size are thin this one has a nice thick dimension making it proportions aesthetically appealing yet not too thick or heavy even for small hands. Nice brown and gold stylized personal pages at the front.
5)Traditionalist/Modern for those who love the older versions this includes Thee/Thou... for prayerd to God such as in Daniel,Our Father and especially pleasant in the Psalms, the renderings of words being from 1977 are closer to KJV such as "lovingkindness" rather than the clinical sounding "Steadfast love" of newer versions. The renderings are modern enough however for all to understand in 2011 common parlance. Even using numbers "25000" rather than the KJV twenty an five thousand, This is a great reading , preaching daily use , study, gift, long time use, devotional, even if you like marking Bible (well spaced lines for underlining and a small margin all around.
Paper is typical Bible paper but feels a little thicker than most in its price point and much better than the loathsome paper used in Nelsons signature series, font and print excellent, binding is sewn! It even has the overstitching around Genesis 5 down th whole page margin for that oldstyle sewing to maximze the spine durability, something usually only found on 100+ dollar Bibles! My copy has a slight crinkle down the margin which gives the "crackle" sound when turning but it is very minimal other Bible like the NAS In Touch is much more prominent and it is a sign of tigh sewing.
Oh yes almost forgot lies flat at Genesis 1 !
Lastly the cover obviously Bonded leather is cheap and ugly regardless what anyone says, and this may hinder the lying flat from Genesis to Revelation.
You may ask how does mine lay flat then. Well this would be the only flaw I can see with this binding the cover, but whose to complain at under 20$ !!! Well do like I did purchase the Bible and have it sent to a rebinder! choose any leather,colour,ribbons,stamping you want! Rather than the cookie cutter approach of buying one expensive premade like everyone elses, wish I had a picture for you mine is matte black butter soft natural goatskin, Gold stamped 3 ribbons.
If you want a decent Bible that will last with nice layout,helps, in a legible style, in a good reliable translation you can do no wrong. AMG unlike others is a good publisher with ministry and evangelism at heart.
