This is a compact Bible, so perhaps for the compact category, this is considered as large print. The letter size is actually small. Disappointed with that. The cover feels nice and soft, great imitation leather for sure. Much better than the "gift and reward" Bible that's imitation leather. My son, (who is 11), likes this Bible so I guess it's a go. His favorite color is green, so I was searching for a green bible. This is olive, however, I thought it would be more on the green side. This Bible, (in person), looks black. If you're looking for large print, I wouldn't recommend this particular Bible, I would go with the ESV Hardcover Pew Bible. That is large print, and is great quality.
I am reviewing the ESV large print, compact Bible in coffee imitation leather. One word - Wow! For the price of this Bible I am absolutely amazed. Nice gold page edges, sewn binding, a very readable 8 pt. font, respectable looking imitation leather cover, a rounded spine (as opposed to flat), line matching (not sure if this is intended, but I can't find any that are not matching in my Bible), a lifetime guarantee, a useful concordance, a ribbon marker, and all at a very low weight (great for holding one-handed when reading and teaching). Crossway is really doing ESV readers a wonderful service by offering this very nice, value packed little Bible at such a great price. I have a few high end Bibles by another manufacturer that cost a whole lot more, yet this under $20 ESV puts them to shame for all its features and value. There are no maps or cross-references, but for keeping this Bible at a nice compact size while allowing for a readable font, I could not care less. This is one very nice, inexpensive little Bible!
I received this Bible as a Christmas gift from my Grandparents upon deciding that my KJV was simply too large to carry everywhere I desired to go, and that I wanted a compact, reliable Bible. Without taking too long to get to the point, I found this Bible and sent them the link. The Bible itself is exactly what I wanted. It is quite small, but the readability is actually quite impressive. I have absolutely no problem reading this Bible. Granted that I have not had it for a long time, I am not sure how long the Bible will actually last, though it seems to be good quality. Overall it is a fabulous Bible. If you want a compact Bible for portability, then I would recommend this to anyone. This has practically become my go-to Bible. Furthermore, you can have it for only thirteen dollars? I would not hesitate on making this purchase.
