I’ve used Moleskine, Piccadilly, and the ones Ligonier put out. I’d put this journal at the top of the list regarding overall quality of paper and binding.
It has high quality paper. The cover is leather over board and you can feel the difference as opposed to the polyurethane used in other journals, which I’ve noticed has a tendency to crack on the spine. The spine of the journalis similar to the binding of a hardcover book which should contribute to the journals durability. As opposed to other journals this size B&H made a wise decision and did not include an elastic band. In my experience those bands end up looking their elasticity and hang limply making them pointless.
I would definitely recommend this for anyone looking for a journal or a book to write sermon notes in.
Disclosure: I received a review copy of the book from the publisher for the purpose of reviewing it. The opinions I have expressed are my own, and I was not required to write a positive review.
