This new NIV thinline bible is bound in beautiful flexible bonded leather, silver gilded paper edges and thumb indexed. This is a standard bible, featuring the full text of the NIV. No additional features: no maps, no concordance and no articles- is what keeps this bible thin and easy to carry while maintaining a readable font. The font is a newly created comfort print. It does make this bible easier to read. When you look carefully at the font style, it appears to be a modern designed font, not a traditional font like New Times Roman. If you are looking for a basic, but well designed leather bible, this is a good choice. This bible comes thumb indexed. I didn't find this feature too useful as each thumb indexed page features 4 different books, so it still takes a bit of flipping to find the book you are actually looking for. This is a good everyday bible, as it is lightweight and easy to read in bed or on the go. As a blogger for booklook I received a copy of this bible for the purpose of writing this review.
