While I'm not a fan of this 'translation' (the author prefers paraphrase), I purchased this for a friend recently and was astounded at it's quality for the price. The leather feel was great and not like some of the other bibles I've seen that go for the same feel at this price point. The print size wasn't to difficult too considering the size, which I would chalk up to thinner paper being used, but there was no obvious bleed through. It comes in pink and purple too, and other colours, making for a nice class set or the like.
I absolutely love this bible! First of all the message translation is very clear and easy to understand and it makes passages I'd read a hundred times come to life. The only bad thing would be it's extremely thin pages (although I look at this as a reason to value and take care of the book) that easily fold and get wrecked. Otherwise I have nothing to say about this beautiful bible. It's single column style and clear typeface and size makes it a book that I found near impossible to put down.
