    This is one beautiful bible the leather is fantastic, it has the toughness of a genuine grain yet softness of goatskin. You can take this premium around town and not be afraid of scratching or snagging the cover. The rich color of black is very handsome and you get that quality squeak of a fine binding that is music to my ears. The rounded spine is one touch that gets missed by some reviews, but to us bible junkies we notice these fine little details, its a classic look giving the bible soft curves. As you open the bible you will notice it’s gonna need some working in, Crossway is still making that hinge a bit to stiff. No worries cause with a bit of bible geek elbow grease (aggressive yoga) 😍 she becomes a beautiful swan. The paper!! Oh the paper…. did I mention the paper? This is the softest paper I’ve ever felt in my many years of making bible junkie video reviews. Yes the paper is thin but with the line matching ghosting is a non factor, the print is perfect simple clean and crisp with no fading like some publishers of old. The margins are very nice on the outer page but with the tight binding the inner margin will be a bit more usable once the bible works in. I scored this a 4 out of 5 do partly to that stiff hinge, but also something that most definitely needs addressed THE RIBBONS!😞 please Crossway fix this ribbon issue, they are horribly placed stacked and twisted on a premium bible? There is zero attention to detail when the ribbons get glued in, its sloppy and really takes away from such an amazing bible. Regardless the bible is worth the money and will last you a lifetime, if you like thin line bibles and the ESV look no further.

    This Wide Margin Bible is amazing. The paper is absolutely great. I have not stopped writing in it. Do not let the “thinnest” of the paper worry you. Build quality is great of course (made by JongBloed). If I had to complain about something, it would be that it doesn’t have the current ESV text edition. It has the 2011 edition. Not a deal breaker but worth noting. Ow and like most all Crossway Bibles, there ribbons are not up to par with the quality of the Bible. That can be fixed quite easy though. If your on the fence, just go for it. You won’t regret this one.
