The Christian Standard Readers Bible is made with a durable, gray cloth-over-board cover. It is read like a novel with no verse or chapter breaks. The book and chapter references are listed at the bottom of each page. It appeared rather confusing until I recalled there are no verse or chapter breaks.
This Bible would be a refreshing change in reading through the Bible in a year. However, I would not recommend it for doing a Bible study with. The text is single-column, 10-point type, and the Bible has Smyth-sewn binding for added durability, plus a ribbon marker.
I felt the Bible could use a bit of color, perhaps a touch of black around the border. I did, however, favor the colorful maps at the back of the Bible. I recommend this Bible to others who are either wanting to read the Bible through in a year or would like to read the Bible in its original format. I received a gray cover however it is also made with poppy.
