1 review for ESV Pocket Bible Buffalo Leather, Deep Brown

  1. David (verified owner)

    I have to admit to being quite disappointed in the construction of this Bible. The Bible itself is very good, just as described, but the cover, liner, and end pages aren’t done very well at all, IMNSHO. Unusual for a Crossway Bible which are typically top notch.

    First, the cover. Buffalo are very large creatures so I can see no reason for the cover leather to be so small. It’s just *barely* larger than the pages of the Bible. And they must have used a very dull blade to cut the cover; the edges (top, bottom, side, spine, front and back) are quite ragged. Perhaps this is a style thing, trying to make the Bible a bit more rugged looking or it’s just the way buffalo leather is.

    The cover liner is OK, but when pasted to the first of the several card stock end pages, it makes for one page at the front and one at the back that are almost like notepad cardboard, very thick and stiff. Maybe this is intentional, to add stiffness to the Bible? If so, it doesn’t feel good in the hand. And why so many end pages? One, maybe two, OK. But four? Perhaps this is required somehow for proper construction, but given the fact that they’re card stock and seem to be just a sliver larger than the pages of the Bible itself, it isn’t a good look or feel.

    As for its durability, since I just got the Bible I can make no comment on this other than to say typical Crossway Bibles hold up very well, in my experience.

    Other than the issues just described, the Bible is good. The size is what I’ve been looking for, the readability of the font is no problem, the ‘ghosting’ is exactly what one would expect on typically thin Bible pages, and of course, the ESV is my preferred translation.
