Purchased for a 10 year old boy to begin daily devotionals and individual study. Very attractive bible with silver edges on pages. Perfect font size with no see-through problems. He keeps his in the box because he likes the feel of the cover in his hands. We use the ESV version for the family reading times so that everyone can follow along easily and pick up their parts. The construction seems fine and he is very happy with his new tool.
Cover is very nice, has a very comfortable feel to it. But the paper and typeface is unacceptable. The font is a large 9.5 point font but too thin and difficult to read. The paper is the thinest of any I've seen and the bleed-through between pages is unacceptable. I'm returning it. I have several other ESV editions and this one is the worst.
I bought this to carry to weekly Bible study. It is attractive and durable. As a translation, I generally like the ESV and I certainly trust it. So, if you need a portable general use Bible with maps and decent concordance, get this one or whichever of its many cousins (i.e., various covers and colors) suites your taste.
