Though I like the ESV I was disappointed with this bible. The cover is nice but that's it. The print is too small. It says on the CBD site that the font size is 9.5 point text but that's not true. I have another ESV Thinline bible (Gray Cletic Cross version) and the print is larger and its thinner then this one! The print also is very light and not dark enough in my opinion. Again ESV great version but finding a good bible in that version is like looking for a needle in a haystack! The company that makes them I doubt listens to these complaints.
Very nice cover and sturdy binding, yet flexible and user-friendly. Nice feel, font is small but not minute. I use reading glasses anyway and can read this fine with standard ones. Lovely embossed 'Celtic' cross, color is deep and nice tone. Not a study bible, bu a lot of reference material and many fine print notes at bottom of each page. Excellent bible to take to worship.
