This is a journaling NIV version bible. It's size is convenient to fit in medium purse and is hardcover. It has an elastic that will go from the back cover to the front that secures it together well. The pages are thick, not sure if you use a sharpie that it might bleed through, I didn't dare to try it. The pages have a good sized margin for notes and journaling. I have been trying to find a journaling bible that would give enough lined space to write in and this one does a good job. I liked the pink cover, it feels fresh and updated for a teenager, but anyone that likes pink will enjoy this cover.
I would recommend this to anyone that would like a hand held bible that you can journal in. This bible is very sturdy and made to uphold, many page turns and being open and closed multiple times. I don't see this falling apart for many days of usage, it will be able to uphold daily usage.
