I have a large print Bible and wanted a good large print study Bible this is not large print. It is well set out and quite large and heavy I understand why the print isn't bigger it would be enormous, but if you need large print I would try shopping around

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for truly understanding
Reviewed in Canada on May 20, 2020
This Bible is fantastic. Understanding the cultural context in which the Bible was written is key to understanding many of the passages (for example, the parable of the mustard seed). This Bible has a cultural/translational explanation for almost every single passage in addition to very helpful and interesting maps and extra small historical and cultural articles and pictures.

Perfect for Christian's looking to understand more about Jesus' time, or for scholars who are more interested in the historical significance of the Bible.

I was a little reluctant to purchase the physical version as opposed to the kindle, but I am very glad I did because reference type books such as this are a nightmare to navigate on kindle. This was well worth the money and I will no doubt keep it for life.
