This Bible will be a delight to look at, to handle - and to read. The Bible text is the popular New International Version, printed right across the page, with no columns - so it reads just like an ordinary book. There are footnotes to explain translation points and a useful Table of Weights and Measures. The text is a comfortable reading size, equally useful for public reading or personal devotions. It is printed on wonderfully light Bible paper, finished with brilliant gilt edges that give protection to the delicate pages as well as a luxurious look to the Bible. Head and tailbands provide a touch of traditional style to this splendid NIV Bible, bound in burgundy French Morocco leather. This particular Bible is not for sale in the EU.
