Oh, I really like this Bible! It has an absolutely beautiful cloth cover that is firm yet flexible. The inside front and back pages also have a beautiful floral design on sage paper.
I am really enjoying the notetaking areas on each page for when I want to journal my thoughts. It is a single column design and the only thing I have a bit of a problem with is that the font feels small to me. The study Bible that I currently take to church has much larger font that is easier on the eyes. However, that is truly the only thing that I struggle with a bit when reading this Bible. I love the thickness of the pages. They are just right for journaling, while not being too thick.
I am using the Bible reading plan, which is located toward the back of the Bible. I like the flexibility of the plan. It can be used as a daily plan that covers both the old and new testament, or the reader can choose to follow just the old or just the new plan. I am working through both. A concordance and maps are located in the back, however, there are no additional study aids. The extra room is saved for journaling and notetaking.
This Bible is a great choice for women or teens who would like to have a pretty Bible that also has notetaking room built into it.
I received a complimentary copy of this Bible. All opinions are my own.
