I bought this and the Red Letter NIV New Testament. I read the Old Testament once (5 chapters a day in the morning) and the New Testament 4-8 times (2 or more chapters a day at bedtime) each year in a different translation. Depending on where I am and the season I read on my PC, Samsung Tablet, PaperWhite, and phone. The Red Letters show up everywhere but the PaperWhite unless you highlight them. While many argue about which is the best translation based on various criteria or source material, my idea of the best Bible is one you will actually pick up and read and I found this NIV translation very readable and enjoyable. It was easy to read without disconcerting oversimplifications like one translation I read a few years back that substituted "going without eating" for "fasting." Everyone knows what fasting is, the substitution was unnecessary and jolting. I didn't detect anything like that here. I would recommend this Bible to anyone.
