    I just got this on Friday and have read it throughout the weekend and used it at church today. WOW! What a beautiful Bible!

    The cover is even softer than the ESV New Classic Readers Bible and, in my opinion, has a prettier hue of blue. The sky blue ribbons are gorgeous and the art gilding is fantastic. The bright white shade of paper really makes the text pop, which is important with it being a red-letter edition. Speaking of the red-lettering, this was also done nicely. The ink and coloring is perfectly even on every page and not too harsh or too soft. It’s really a Goldilocks color of red.

    I am thrilled with my new Bible and will be using it as my preaching Bible while keeping the NCR at home for my devotional reading. Home Run for Allan on this and on the NCR.
