There are several bibles I’ve had in my sights lately, but the problem I always have when considering a bible to buy is not the translation, but the format. I used to be completely opposed to bibles that weren’t bound in leather, but have since come to appreciate a hardcover bible, especially for study.
The bibles I would like to purchase are:
- JPS Tanakh
- ESV Study Bible (which is on sale today at CBD for $24.99–HT: Bible X)
- TNIV (Yeah, I know–I’m behind the times! 🙂 )
I know the thoughts of many on the TNIV, so I’ll not inquire about it. Concerning the JPS Tanakh and ESV study bible, what are your thoughts? What about leather-bound vs. hardcover–what do you prefer?
