I bought this for my kids.. they fell in love with the covers on the site. Unfortunately, I didn't read the dimensions. When they arrived, I was so disappointed that they were soooooooo small!!! I can't even read the print and I wear glasses. They say they like them, so we're keeping them, but I really wish they would have let me sent it back.
I bought my son the burgundy HCSB and loved the translation as well as the beauty of the Bible. When my daughter saw it, she asked if we could get her one as well even though it isn't the translation our church uses. She chose red for the color but didn't know how pretty the design would be. Part of what I love about this Bible is the endless references throughout. It's a perfect small size and you can actually read the words whereas with a lot of other small Bibles you need to have magnifying glasses on to be able to read them.
The only draw back is that you can't get them personalized which is a shame but sure won't keep me from getting more. These are such good quality that I'm sure my kids will be able to hand them down if taken care of.
I was surprised by how much I like this Bible. It is compact and so much easier to carry to Bible Study and Church than my large, heavy Bible. I've never read this translation before, and I'm enjoying it. Although it is supposed to be "large print," as the caveat states in the description, the text is actually small, but not tiny. My 51-year-old eyes do fine with it.Last, but not least, the cover is quite beautiful with the Celtic Cross designs. The price is very reasonable and shipping was very fast. A good choice for me. It's been a blessing.
