In the spirit of the scholarly and critical nature of the NRSV's translation committee, this review will be done from the standpoint of an owner with many fine bibles.
Text: This Bible is printed in China, but the text is crisp, clean, and beautiful! The print is very dark and easy on the eyes for such a small Bible. I love it-- on par with $150 Bibles.
Paper: The paper is nice. It is better than what you have come to expect from $20 bibles, but not quite up to the premium level-- which is OK.
Binding: The sewn binding is very tight, and it lays flat right out of the box (after you press it down, which most nice bibles require you to do as well).
Cover: I was a little disappointed in the burgundy bonded leather cover. The color is a dark burgundy, which is my personal preference but, it is a rather poor quality bonded leather (even in the standards of bonded leather bibles in say-- 2005; that's how drastically quality has fallen). Yet again, for $20 you really can't complain, you could get easily get a few years out of this bible if you took really good and careful care of it.
Overall: Great bible, great deal, great print, great translation. I recommend it and would buy it again.

This a great setting of the NRSV. The text is clean and highly readable much more so than I expected. Good quality bonded leather cover that's probably as nice as most standard leather covers (I'm not talking premium calfskin, just standard genuine leather). Good size not too small as to have tiny print. Highly recommended I wish I had bought it sooner.

As the title says, this Bible was much better than I expected. with the price point being what it is, and with the cover being bonded leather, I expected this to be a cheaply made peice junk. Oh boy, was I ever wrong!
First, this bible screams class with the black cover and the silver gilt.
Second, the paper is really nice and opaque, I expected that it would have bad paper because of the thinline size and the price point. The print is nice and dark; no lack of readability here.
Thrid, I know that it says bonded leather, but this has to be the nicest bonded leather I have ever seen. It is soft to the touch and flexes well.
Finally, to top it off, this Bible has a sewn binding; so you don't have to worry about the pages falling out.
Bottom line, this is one of the best NRSV's avalible; and at a price anyone can afford.
Be Encouraged:-)

The size is exactly what I needed: light enough to read in bed one-handed, small enough to stick in a jacket's side pocket. Despite the tiny type it is quite readable, and to get leather -- albeit bonded leather -- at this price is amazing.
