I needed a Bible to carry with me for work and church services. This is a great size, the font is clear and a readable size, and fits easily in a small bag for work or weekend getaways. I still use my NIV Life Application for studying at home and group studies, but this ESV Bible fills a different need.
This Bible is the same size/format as the NIV I've used daily for 24 years and I plan to use it in the same way. I am excited to see how God will use the ESV translation to deepen my knowledge of Him and His Word.
