My Review:

Inside and out this is a GORGEOUS Bible in full color with a beautiful color scheme. There is a different primary color used for different categories of the books in the Bible (ex: historical, poetic, the prophets, etc). This can help the reader (especially those not familiar with the different books) get a better understanding of the context of what they’re reading. The commentary also has a few colored symbols used to classify the different types of study notes. There are multiple full color maps and images scattered throughout and plenty of other added content. The font is a clean, easy-to-read print with the commentary in a slightly smaller size. My only complaint is that there isn’t a ribbon included for marking your place, however that is also specific to the hardcover edition. It appears that it’s included on the softcover editions. I would highly recommend this as a new Bible for yourself or as a gift for a friend.
