The dimensions for this are not correct online... it is slightly bigger than what they have listed. So it will easily fit a backpack Bible. In case you are like me and you are actually measuring your Bible... and thinking this cover will be too small.
Also I suggest these 'compact Bible covers' be listed in the search area under 'small Bible covers'... it took me a long time to find what I wanted and only happened upon the right thing- thankfully because I've needed one for a long long time...
I was looking for a small book cover for my small pocket bible and this was the right size. I used to keep the bible in it's box which was covered in tape. Now I have protection for my little bible, room for a pen and paper. I can carry it anywhere.
If you carry your compact Bible around like I do (isn't that why you purchased a compact Bible in the first place?) means it can see some abuse when being placed in backpacks, suitcases, purses, glove box, etc. Spending a few extra dollars to get a nice durable "compact size" Bible cover has been well worth the money and has kept my Bible in like-new condition while on-the-go. My only con is that the compact size cases are a few dollars more than their standard size counterparts, not sure why. The cover has proved to be a long term value none the less. As a final note, it's not just enough to have God's Word with you. You need to make time to OPEN it, READ it, and RESPOND to it daily!
