This text block is superb. I was blown away when I opened it up... it's a dream for someone who wants great readability in a small Bible. It is slightly shorter and fatter than a Pitt Minion with text that is at least a full point larger and no references. Line matched text reads wonderfully and the print is consistent throughout. Even the red letter text looks nice and dark. A real joy to read and to hold in the hand.
PLEASE NOTE: This is a compact Bible. The print is smaller than a full-sized bible but large for a bible this compact. The print is about the size of a normal thinline.
This particular model has the magnetic flap. Seems to work well as it does keep the bible closed and protected. Personally, I'd like a regular cover just as well. I rate the inside 5 stars plus. The cover is fine and matches the price.
This is a very attractive Bible that can go anywhere. I recently purchased this one as the ESV I have is a larger, hardcover edition and I found it was not comfortable to curl up and read. Hence I wanted something more compact. I love this Bible. The size is perfect, the red lettering of Jesus' words is great for study and the nice soft cover allows it to lay open without immediately trying to flop closed like I have experienced with other editions. If there were anything I would change, it would be for the typeset to be slightly larger, but that is my issue with my failing eyesight. Unfortunately I have been unable to find an ESV in this size with a larger font. Otherwise I am extremely pleased and would recommend this to anyone. It is lightweight, comfortable to hold and very well made.
