- Review by Victor
The main reason was that I left it for my easy week meditation on the third week of May. This Bible has an introductory commentary section, that I recommend everyone read. It is very good. I got the hard cover version, which is good, fonts are fine, I like the in between column - section - for cross references. On any Bible I always appreciate a concordance, this one brings one. Another good little detail is that it brings two dividers, which are very useful, specially to mark some concordance references.
Every book has a nice and concise introduction, above all, I believe this is a good Bible to have and to present to others as a gift.
One recommendation that I give to those that had problem with small fonts, this one might give you a little trouble. I do not know if they have the same version with larger fonts, if so that will be a plus.
Generally speaking Proclamation Bible, from the Zondervan house, is a good version to acquire.
If you need a new Bible, I think you might like this one, nothing fancy, but very helpful, just like old times.
