Fans of the Nelson NKJV version will find this `EZ' carry size Bible one to own and use. First impressions are very positive with the tan leather like cover and a clever magnetic flip-over closing strap (for lack of some better term). It does keep the Bible from opening inadvertently during carry and I suspect will add years to its usefulness. This is the Protestant Bible - no Apocrypha. It is advertised as giant type which it is not, but it is large type for a Bible of its modest 8.5" x 6 x 1.25 size and with 65 year old eyes a pleasant and easy reader of 1450 pages with a modest concordance and a few color maps. Of course the paper is thin, but white, and sharply printed type help considerably. The binding seems good as the Bible will lay flat without flopping closed - a lot more than I can say for most of the other 50 Bibles I have. I have most every modern translation Bible in my library, the Nelson NKJV is not the best of all of them (personal opinion) but certainly in the top few. I evaluate the critical passages that one knows are subject to interpretation, even KJV `error,' and what I want to see is copious footnotes, that are neutral, competent, inclusive and informative. My idea of the perfect five star Bible is one that is easy to read as this one is, with durable jacket and paper (this one is a carry Bible thus thin paper), with the classic KJV Biblical grammar which the NKJV compromises as we all know, together with such footnotes that satisfy high expectations for scholarship including the knowledge of the ancient texts that has been found and researched in the last 400 years and especially so in the last few decades. Thus I give this Nelson product 4 well deserved stars. I, as an interdenominational minister, would and have taken this Bible to any service or study session where a contemporary translation is appropriate - that says a lot for it as I have many to choose from. I am not a lady, but if I were, I would venture this is a Bible a women would appreciate, easy to carry, smart looking, and easy to read, and if not in a carry bag, but in a purse, it would not flop open and become a disheveled mess in short order. The Amazon price for mine was a good deal and delivery was next to instant. 5 stars for that.
