A fresh, new design. It's based off the Renaissance ideal for a perfect page, which means there's a precise layout of the text and the margins – what Renaissance thinkers considered perfect proportions. You can also download a PDF sample.
High standard of excellence in production. This is one of the finest-quality Bibles that Crossway publishes. Because of the nature of this project, they used select production materials and processes. The paper, binding, and printer were all carefully selected to ensure the quality of this edition
Uses line-matching. Line-matching is a process that aligns the text on both sides of a page, minimizing the see-through of text.
Designed for undistracted reading. As a "reader's Bible," it uses a single-column format and does not include cross-references, introductions, or other special features (although there are maps and a concordance in the back). Section titles display in the margins instead of in-line with the text. The result is an edition where you can move smoothly from passage to passage without jumping around or being distracted by added textual divisions.
